After ring wing sites such as FOX News and the NY Post wrote articles on Joe Gacy’s new mock-woke character, who talked about safe spaces and male privilege, WWE has deleted the promo from YouTube, Twitter, and just about everywhere else. So they’ve had an immediate reconsideration into going into controversial territory and have probably killed the gimmick after 1 week.

That can only mean the character was supposed to be a babyface, and was supposed be woke, not mocking the woke. If he was supposed to be mock-woke, getting coverage on Fox News is exactly what they should have wanted. In fact, it should be beyond their wildest dreams to get mainstream coverage for a debuting 2 minute promo.

There is no way that character was supposed to be a babyface.  It was an over-the-top Right to Censor gimmick, but maybe WWE just has no idea how to do that anymore.

So why did they cancel him? This should be exactly what they wanted.

But I don't even recognize their old names...

WWE has finalized new ring names for the following talents, PWInsider.com can confirm:

*Joseph Fatu is now Sefa Fatu.

*Jennifer Michell Cantu Iglesias is now Yulisa Leon.

*Jessica Woynilko is now Tiffany Stratton.

*Sanjana George is now Vish Kenya.

I would love to see a wrestler whose whole gimmick is being "woke" and going full tilt with it. Let his initials be SJW. His finisher could be Cancel Culture. Transition moves and high spots could be called things like Stunning and Brave, Male Privilege, the Patriarchy. IT practically writes itself.

Just let him be smug and obnoxious like certain poster over at a certain other message board but have good ring skills. Crowds would eat that shit up and would love to see a guy like that get his ass kicked.

Joey Ryan and Rob Van Dam formed a tag team in Impact called Cancel Culture, right before Ryan was canceled.

These honeymoon skits involving Dexter Lumis and Indy Hartwell…why? Just why? Who could this possibly appeal to? Who’s shooting this and is like, “That’s the take. That was perfect. Gold baby, gold!”

Bruce Prichard, who seems even more fascinated with banality than Kevin Dunn these days.

And what was with “shit” being said twice on the show without bleeping? They’ve decided to make NXT the adult brand, just as they’ve broken out the romper room set?

Imagine if they replaced Saturday Night Live with a beginners improv class. That's NXT 2.0

I tried to watch this week's show, but it's very hard to care when everyone is so unknown and so green. I had to laugh when a Samoan named Quinn came out. You can't tel me that these names are anything but picked at random.

Well, Elektra Lopez is Karissa Rivera, whose father Juan Rivera wrestled for the WWF as Steve King. At least in her case you could see there was a generational precedent.

It looks like a local cable TV show.  It can't be much different in terms of presentation or match quality than Booker T.'s indy Reality of Wrestling or something like that.  It actually reminds me a bit of Championship Wrestling From Hollywood.  You still have a handful of holdovers like Kyle O'Reilly and Pete Dunne who wouldn't know how to have a bad match if they tried, but they are making it really, really difficult to watch to get to those guys.  And one of the few good workers left, the heart and soul of the brand for years, Johnny Gargano, no longer wrestles and instead is involved in cringy comedy skits where he's trying to make sure the condoms are well stocked.  There's too much wrestling on for me to watch this garbage much longer.  If I don't have time to keep up with Dark or Elevation, then I don't see how I can justify watching NXT at this point.

This week's show was absolute garbage and I feel so sorry for the good number of fully trained wrestlers who have ended up being dumped in this wrestlers' kindergarten.

I'm also 100% that there are plants in that audience to get the fans to make some noise.

Just awful, and I won't be watching again.
