So this week was a long video package of the Gargano/Ciampa story narrated by Ciampa and Gargano in sit down interview format, it told the whole story from their try outs at the performance centre, to being in the Cruiserweight Classic, to DIY to Ciampa turning heel, to both men being NXT champion, to Ciampa getting injured, to DIY reuniting, to Gargano turning heel. This was followed up with packages in the same format for Finn Balor and his WWE run to date and why he returned to NXT, then the Rhea Ripley story up to her match with Charlotte. 

All the video packages were well produced and it was a decent recap of events spanning several years in the careers of the said talents and it provided a little peak behind the curtain in some respects too. I personally would have shortened it all down a bit, a hour would have been fine for this episode or perhaps they could have added in a old match rerun to get to the normal episode length.

I watched the last episode that was with any fans at all from the Performance Center from a few weeks ago. This episode really took place at a pivotal transitional time, where the powers that be from the WWE knew they had to minimize the crowd but also before the shit really hit the fan. In my eyes the atmosphere was perfect; the small crowd gave the show an old time feel like an indy show. 

The most memorable thing that stood out to me was the crowd's reaction to Charlotte when she confronted Rhea Ripley. They chanted, "Go back to Raw! Go back to Raw!" at Charlotte. It is interesting the crowd had a loyalty to the NXT stars even though (as she said in the promo) just a few years ago Charlotte was one of the ones who made NXT what it is. It reminded me of the invasion era where the WWF crowd cheered the WWF people no matter who they were and booed the shit out of anyone associated with WCW. Today's NXT really does have its own identity and loyal following. 

Like I said, the atmosphere was perfect. I as many others long for the day things are back to "normal"; but I fully understand why it can't be that way right now.
