I still recall the time WCW fielded a team for celebrity Family Feud and Rick went first in the Fast Money Round:




RAY COMBS:  "Name one of the costs of buying a car."

RICK STEINER:  "Uhhhh.... nine thousand dollars."

This week’s NXT drew 574,000 viewers, the 2nd lowest rated episode ever on USA (not counting the shows switched to a different network due to preemptions). Even worse, in the 18-49 demo, NXT lost 26% of its audience from just last week. Year-over-year, NXT is down 22% in the key demos from 2020, despite no longer going head-to-head with AEW, which dominated them in that key demo. That’s pretty astounding.

With Johnny Gargano's contract set to expire on December 3 and WarGames being on December 5, Gargano has signed a one week extension. With the way the market is and having a kid on the way, unless he's guaranteed a good AEW deal, I could see him staying with WWE.

He's completely lost there now though.  All the old guard look hopelessly lost.  Ciampa is the champion and even he seems lost.  The War Games will no doubt put over the "new blood" at the expense of the original NXT, and I saw the booking as the swan song for all of them.  They're actually calling Ciampa, Gargano, Dunne, and Knight "Team Old School".  Dunne is 28 and Knight was signed a few months ago.  And the saddest part of all is that one of them will probably be seriously injured because you have 4 guys wrestling them who have no idea what they're doing in a regular match, much less in a War Games.

Beth Phoenix announced that she is quitting NXT to spend more time with her family. War Games this weekend will be her last show.

Johnny Gargano appears to be done with NXT after tonight, as alluded to on his Twitter as well as a promo by Ciampa tonight. His contract is up and surely he’ll have no problem signing with AEW even if they’re raising standards.  That’s probably a spoiler for the main event as I would expect him to do the job and put one of these talentless young kids over.

Gargano almost in tears walking out. Huge entrance with a huge pop. The announcers put him over big. Entire crowd on their feet chanting “Johnny Wrestling”. It’s definitely the end without anyone saying it. Gargano’s NXT run was amazing and when you can’t figure out how to keep guys like this, there’s just no hope.

Lance Storm: “ There is ZERO chance NXT Black and Gold beats NXT 2.0. Just billing it like that kills the finish.

Crazy that I’m seeing people predicting Black and Gold win. You can’t tell the story that the current show we want you to watch is worse than the one you used to watch.“

Team 2.0 wins. I thought Brekker would pin Gargano but instead he pinned Ciampa.

Reports say Gargano will address his future on NXT on Tuesday, so he's not done yet.

His contract is up on Friday. They are probably still going to try to resign him until then.

It's either going to be a farewell address or he'll announce he re-signed.  Meltzer says it really looks unlikely he's re-signing, so pretty surprising they'll give him a mic not knowing which way it's going yet.

When they gave Gargano the end of the show to make his announcement I was sure they had to be keeping him. And then when he started talking about leaving I thought maybe it was a swerve and he was going to the main roster for his new contract.  But no, he really hasn’t re-signed yet and he likely will be in AEW soon. They had Grayson Waller run in to lay out Gargano and write him off TV, but prior to that he gave a great farewell speech thanking HHH, HBK, Regal and a bunch of guys who never get mentioned on TV like Steve Corino, Matt Bloom, and Terry Taylor. Definitely the end of an era.

I don't think they give him that platform if he's leaving. I think he's taking time off to be with Candice and he'll be back with WWE after the baby is born.
