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.

I watched another dumpster fire called the Yankees last night instead, and not sure if I can sit through this as well.  I've suffered enough.

So Tony Mamaluke is supposed to be a babyface? Didn't see that one coming, but that's what the plants in the crowd seemed to indicate.

I’m 45 minutes into NXT and we have 2 botched finishes where it looked like there were kick-outs and 1 legit injury where a girl killed herself and needed to be removed from the match. This show needs to be moved to public access.

Also they decided the commentators should dress down for NXT and now they look like a gay couple from the Pacific Northwest on a chilly night. Wade Barrett is definitely the top.

Are they able to co-exist? Compeling, original stuff.

They just had 6 women, few of them experienced, have a ladder match that ended in at least 3 of them almost dying at different points. This show has become more irresponsible than bad. These kids should not be continually put in situations they’re not ready for. If Cornette bashes AEW botches, what the fuck is he saying about this show?

If you thought the bump was bad on TV, take a look at this angle:

Somehow, Io Shirai is OK according to backstage reports.

I thought the NXT crowd had some plants to lead the crowd, but it seems not. From Trent Osborne at bodyslam.net yesterday:

The negative reaction to MSK from the NXT crowd has been a topic of discussion amongst fans since their debut this past January.

A recent Reddit post that has been making the rounds on social media suggests that the reason the current NXT Tag Team Champions were getting such a nasty reaction was due to a tweet that Nash Carter, one-half of MSK, had made in 2018 criticizing a spot that included a 13-year old Izzy taking a choke-slam at an Indy show. Izzy, who you may remember as the “Bayley fan” that Sasha Banks made cry during the Banks/Bayley 30-Minute Ironman match at NXT Takeover: Respect, along with her parents have been very prominent figures in the NXT community for years. The post alleges that Izzy’s parents held a grudge against Carter and got a group of very vocal NXT fans to boo the team mercilessly whenever they would appear.

I not only can confirm that this rumor has been floating around the NXT community since at least February, but that numerous sources close to the situation have told me that it is true.

Sources say the parents, along with a contingent of fans they convinced to join them in the negative reaction to MSK, were asked to move away from the hard-camera side of the arena due to the group visibly booing the team on-screen. “Go back and watch NXT before Takeover: Stand and Deliver, their posse is [on] hard cam every show.” one source said. “After [Takeover] a decision was made to move them off hard cam because of the booing of MSK, but by then the crowd had been ingrained to boo them because “it was cool.”

The group cannot be seen in their usual spot in the audience in the episodes of NXT following Stand and Deliver, and reportedly moved to a corner of seating away from the main camera’s view following the event.

One source even said that they had overheard a member of the group, that was not Izzy or her parents, suggest that they should chant “Your dad’s dead” to Carter after the NXT superstar had been vocal on social media about the 12th anniversary of his father’s passing in February. NXT officials were reportedly notified of the comment by a nearby audience member.

Former NXT and current IMPACT, Ring of Honor, and NWA star Chelsea Green seemed to confirm that she had suffered the same treatment from fans Thursday on Twitter:

[Cut and paste issues here, but there is a screenshot of a Chelsea Green tweet that has her saying: "Lol yes, it did actually. Numerous times. It sucked!" replying to a question from a private account so I don't know what the question was exactly - Kriss.]

Green was also critical of the choke-slam spot on social media, along with many others in the business such as Lance Storm, Lince Dorado, and her fiancé Matt Cardona.

MSK is currently in the midst of a 197-day reign as the NXT Tag Team Champions.


Confirmed by Meltzer:

"I got a couple of versions of the story but the version going around is basically correct. I think the short version of it rather than go into big details of people say in line is that there are people there, including the parents of Izzy, who are mad because in 2018 Zachary Wentz before he was Nash Carter when he was an independent wrestler and others including Lance Storm and Chealsea Green made comments that were negative about Izzy taking a chokeslam at an independent show when she was 13 years old… so Carter shows up at NXT and her parents start the crowd to go against him and they got a lot of friends and everyone knows everyone. There’s like 200 people there and they’re pretty much all invited and it’s the same people every week…”

“It’s enough of those people that they’re booing them. They’re gonna boo MSK, that’s their deal so that’s the basic story on why. It’s not like it’s some organic thing. It was enough people that they can make it boo because it’s such a small building.”

I think they’re talking about the old NXT. I didn’t notice anyone booing them in NXT 2.0.

If Cornette bashes AEW botches, what the fuck is he saying about this show?Including Zoey Stark missing what ought to be a basic move in her arsenal.  She came close to blowing out her knee.
Ladder match also suffered from typical ladder match booking.  I.e. someone scoots up six rungs of the ladder then stops just where they can't reach the belts.  And waits there until someone stops them.  What's the kayfabe reason for not taking two more steps and having an easy task?
Was made worse in this one by having two ladders - a short one and a tall one - and having them use the short one when the tall one is RIGHT THERE.

The botched spot that apparently got the most attention was from MSK vs. Imperium lumberjack match. There was a cutter off the top rope to the floor where the lumberjack rookies parted like the Red Sea and the MSK guy landed hard. Matt Riddle tweeted that they should all “be beaten with sticks” and backstage the reaction was reportedly very negative towards the lumberjacks.  

In discussing the spot, Lance Storm said the key isn’t to dive into a pile but to dive unto the one guy you trust to catch you and to hope that everyone else helps that guy out. He said there didn’t seem to be anyone trustworthy out there though.

These poor women in NXT. Barely out of wrestling school and they had to try and work a three way adder match without dying, now they are putting them inside the WarGames cage. Good luck to them, you can't blame the workers, but let them learn to walk before making them run.

Bron Breakker last night: "I'm not a math major, and by the sound of it, you ain't either... but the way I see it, you have less than 33 1/3 % chance of ever taking this #NXTChampionship from me."

So no reference is to be made of him being a Steiner, but…
