This Lars Sullivan push is such a Vince thing to do and doesn't seem like NXT.  I really wish they had kept Killian Dain in NXT and had kept him away from Black and built up a huge feud between them.  Instead, they had Black beat Dain easily on his way out of NXT, which made no sense on so many levels. 

On the flip side, the Gargano-Ciampa feud is one of the best booked in any company since maybe Michaels-Jericho a decade ago.  People thought you couldn't get legit heel heat anymore, and then Ciampa did.  He's the best heel in the business and there is no #2.

I find Lars to almost be unwatchable and his interviews are terrible. He is the anti NXT IMO

Great look, but that's about it. Of course, he'll probably beat Black for the title but I'm hoping Black pulls off the upset and they just fast-track Lars to one of the main rosters.

NXT has never seemed to do this. Baron Corbin and Nia Jax both got big pushes, but they lost their title matches.

NXT doesn’t switch the belt often in general, and Black just win it. I don’t theyll take it off of him yet. Black has mega-star written all over him. Even Vince should see it.

I'm pretty sure Black retains, as well. I think Lars is still "undefeated" on TV, so this would be a big "challenger of the month" win for Black. The only time the NXT title was really a hot potato was during the Nakamura/Samoa Joe feud.

I could see Black losing the NXT title at the SummerSlam Takeover. Not sure to who, but they've got 3 months to come up with something.

I wouldn't be surprised if EC3 doesn't wind up in that spot.  He's everything Vince should love and he just needs that big win before getting called up.  And if/when the relationship with TNA grows, EC3 becomes more valuable.
