NXT UK Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

Are they providing any kind of references or context?

I mean, if you look at it like "taking over" Dublin and putting it under the UK banner... that... just doesn't seem right. Tbh, it's very hard to find context that would be right for the name: NXT UK Takeover: Dublin.

 

If so, they should rename that brand as NXT Europe, or... something. I mean, if it was NXT UK Takeover: Berlin... or whatever, that would be fine I guess. But due to it specifically being Dublin and Ireland... it's incredibly weird.

Smith/Carter's theme ain't gotta go that hard.

In times like these, let's be thankful for these taped shows that still have crowds lol

I noticed it's been coming on at 4pm ET since daylight savings a few weeks back. I guess they moved it back? I can't find it. If it just finished, guess I'll have to wait a while.

Sucks they aren't setting up the UK PC like in the states but more importantly at least these guys will be safe at home.

Weird hearing JR call some of the early days of NXT UK. That last run he had when he came back after WrestleMania 33 was so weird.

This week's NXT UK is just a replay of Tyler Bate vs. WALTER from Takeover last year for the title. Not sure if they've shown this little documentary before leading up to the match, but it's very good. And the match is a classic as well, so I recommend watching this week's. Especially if you haven't seen this match before.

Just seen a rumour they could be looking to axe NXT UK because they're looking to keep on axing stuff and it's an easier to use NXT UK because it's losing money. 

If true I can see them taking a few of the big names over to the States and unify the titles at a Takeover.

Honestly I wouldn't mind it. Realistically, a lot of these guys weren't gonna make it off the UK brand anyway, and the biggest stars could add some more depth to NXT. I know I'd love to see Moustache Mountain and Toni Storm more frequently.

Did it have a very large audience? I only watched the odd episode when I was bored and something got hype. But even just going off the threads here or on reddit it seemed like very few people cared about the brand.

And tbh, there weren't that many "Must See" wrestlers on it. Or rather, the womens division seemed pretty good, but the mens was boring. You had Moustache Mountain, Grizzled Young Vets, Devlin, IMPERIUM....and kinda struggling to think of anyone else I would tune in to watch, or even ever see generate any hype on the forums. Dragunov I guess but he did nothing for me.
