It sounds like a classic bitter wrestler. "Blah blah they unserutilized me blah blah this guy is a piece of shit blah blah."

A wrestling locker room is a fraternity. Rule number one: chapter secrecy. Break it and betray your brothers? Fuck that kid.

Btw, not advocating sexual harassment. But I'm sure after the Pat Patterson/ Mel Phillips incident and the Jerry Lawler shit they'd be no nonsense about that. Not sure if the washout punk named Briley is the most credible source.

Trent Barretta and others have made reference to it too though, and as far as I'm aware neither Barretta nor Pierce have had too many other negative things to say about WWE since they left.

You realize how many times someone's complained about Bill DeMott being a scumbag douche? He should have been fired years ago.

So maybe the NXT takeover of WWE is going to be delayed a bit... 

Quote WWE NXT star Marcus Louis is currently out of action with a leg injury. Cal Bishop is also out of action, with a torn rotator cuff and that could have him out 7-8 months if he needs surgery. Here’s the list of recent injuries that we know of to WWE developmental talents:

* Tyler Breeze, broken finger
* Corey Graves, second concussion
* Kendall Skye, broken wrist
* Dana Brooke, leg injury
* Veronica Lane, leg injury
* Marcus Louis, leg injury
* Cal Bishop, torn rotator cuff

We noted earlier that Slate Randall was out of action with a concussion but he tweeted that the concussion came in early May and he’s already been cleared to return.

There's been plenty of rumors about WWE doing some spring-cleaning down in NXT. But at this rate, they will have to hold off on that and wait for half the roster to get healthy enough to release.

WWE are looking to run another UK tour in June according to reports and possibly have another Takeover show over here.

This time though apparently Takeover will not be in London, I would expect Manchester or Birmingham to be the venue if this is the case, I guess there's a outside chance of them holding it in William Regal's hometown of Blackpool.

At least with it not being in the capital tickets might not sell out quite as fast.

Quote In yesterday’s conference call (transcript via wrestlezone.com), Triple H said that NXT was in a rebuilding process. Here are some of the highlights…


On The Current State of NXT: “I’m not happy with where it is right now by far. I want it to be much better than it is, but it’s a rebuilding process. All these things going on, they all make changes in the ecosystem. Where everything lands at the end of the day is a moving target.”

On Expanding NXT: “I think NXT has the potential to be a lot of things. Where it sits is not 100% my decision. I know those conversations have happened.”


A couple of years back the top players in NXT were Zayn, Neville and Owens, the landscape of the roster changes very quiickly.

Potentially they have a great show there, the main issue for me is the weekly shows are so hit and miss with key talent often not featuring for weeks, a 45 minute show isn't enough time to showcase everyone.

Nakamura, Roode and the Authors of Pain are probably the next top stars to hit the main roster along with Joe and Dillinger. On the flip side I would send Apollo Crewes, Tyler Breeze, Fandango and the Ascension back to NXT for repackaging.

NXT is going to be in the rebuilding phase until April now anyway as they'll loose a few guys between now and then as that is what always happens.

The problem they've been having with NXT is that fact they haven't been building their own next stars for a while as they'be been bringing in big names from outside who've just hit the ground running.

BTW regarding Nakamura, I don't think we'll see him on the main roster for a little while yet. Just a feeling i've got.

I prefer the style of their show to the main roster, a 55 minute show is (its never 45 anymore) a bit short 80 would be good, but I understand that this aids in building anticipation for a wrestlers next appearance and keeps them from being overexposed.

However, NXT badly needs more women in their division who are wrestlers and not divas like Billy Kay, Peyton Royce, and Liv Morgan. We need more Nikki Crosses, Ember Moons and Asukas.

NXTs tag division is good right now, but I expect to see The Revival go up soon and it is going to be a real shame. IMO revival should also be franchised to NXT to live out their career with this brand. They are too small to make it on the main roster and the general audience fans will never accept them.

I'm not a fan of TM61 but with them out and Revival going up that leaves DIY and Sanity, and so there is going to have to be a new team or two debuting asap.

The men's division is really the only division complete and with depth enough to absorb some callups. Bobby Roode can easily carry the division and with Eric Young to aid him in midcard the heels are rock solid with just a few green guys in development. The babyfaces will need some help if Nakamura does actually go up. I have a hard time seeing that happening though, they need a strong babyface.

In honesty Nakamura could go up to the main roster, I'd be happy to see Roode feud with Austin Aries and Chris Hero before heading to the main roster himself. It might seem like Nakamura is franchised to NXT but he's already faced all the top talent down there and as Triple H said recently Nakamura may already be a veteran but he needed time to adapt to the WWE audience and the ring style so throwing him straight in on the mark roster would have been a mistake, but I'm pretty sure he's ready now. I would let him have the rematch with Roode then bring him up after Wrestlemania.

Quote WWE released the full brackets for each of the four NXT tournaments this weekend, with the winners facing the champions on Sunday. The tournaments that are being contested for the right to wrestle for the following titles: WWE United Kingdom Championship, NXT North American Championship, NXT Women's Championship and the NXT Tag Team Championship.

-- The brackets for the UK tournament can be viewed here.

-- The brackets for the North American tournament can be viewed here.

-- The brackets for the Women's tournament can be viewed here.

-- The brackets for the Tag Team tournament can be viewed here.


 
Peyton Royce back Big smile But with a boobjob she didn't need and no Billie Kay in the tournament. Hopefully they are on the main roster next week.
 
Zack Gibson Big smile When he left 5 Star Wrestling this was obvious. I would expect him to at least reach the final.
 
Sanity need to be kept away from the tag titles. They need to be on the main roster also.
