This is a big week for AEW! It’s the premier of their Friday night show “Rampage!” And while “Dynamite” was once again a disappointment as far as women’s wrestling goes, “Rampage” is going to have Britt Baker vs. Red Velvet as the main event on night one. We can only hope it’s the beginning of a trend.
And while we’ve got tons of other wrestling to get to on RAW and NXT, we’ve gotta give a shoutout to John Cena for his work in The Suicide Squad.
Main Event: NXT as it was and will be
Triple H’s brain child NXT rose from the ashes of FCW and a really crappy reality show to become the new face of WWE’s developmental brand in 2012. But along the way it became a great show that introduced major stars from around the world to the company and became a draw in its own right.
And now that it looks like Vince and co. are looking to shake up the direction of the brand, we’re going to take a look back on the last decade of NXT.
The Three Count:
Danielle put over Paris is bumping
Hal put over Johnny Gargano at Indi Hartwell’s date
