WWE NXT: Cruiserweight tournament continues//Rhea returns for the first time since Mania

>Watch NXT with /wooo/ in /wooo/tube - http://taima.tv/r/wooo2 and /wooo/alt2 - http://taima.tv/r/woooalt2 at 8pm Eastern//1am London. On tonight's show:
  • "Black Charisma" Io Shirai vs. "The Nightmare" Rhea Ripley.
  • Drake "Worked the WWE office into a shoot" Maverick vs. KUSHIDA - Cruiserweight Championship Tournament.
  • El Hijo del Fantasma vs. Akira "2-0 in this tournament, 0-6 on RAW" Tozawa - Cruiserweight Championship Tournament.
  • Kross and Scarlett talk some shit
  • Dexter Lumis vs Roderick Strong
>Rhea Ripley takes on Io Shirai with her eyes on her former championship
>Rhea Ripley has made it clear that she’s laser-focused on regaining the NXT Women’s Championship. But her path back to another matchup with Charlotte Flair likely goes through Io Shirai, whom she’ll face tonight on NXT. The Nightmare burst back on the scene for the first time since WrestleMania with her sights set squarely on The Queen and the title she took from her. But Ripley’s return also landed her in The Evil Genius of the Sky’s warpath. Shirai’s opportunity against Flair was well-earned after emerging victorious from a Six-Woman Ladder Match. But The Queen thwarted Shirai’s challenge with a Kendo stick attack, handing Shirai a disqualification win but not the title. As far as The Joshi Judas is concerned, Ripley can get in line if she wants another championship opportunity. Which woman will claim victory in this match with serious title implications?

>Karrion Kross and Scarlett to kick off NXT tonight
>After captivating the NXT Universe in his debut two weeks ago, Karrion Kross will return to in-ring action with Scarlett to kick off NXT tonight. The doomsday duo promised destruction for months, and Kross made good on those words in his first NXT match. After a spellbinding entrance, Kross decimated Leon Ruff, flattening him with two Doomsday Saitos before submitting him almost instantaneously with the Kross Jacket. Will Kross’ second opponent suffer a similar fate?

>Roderick Strong looks to take out Dexter Lumis
> While the NXT Universe still might not be sure what exactly to make of Dexter Lumis, The Undisputed ERA see him as their newest enemy. But can Roderick Strong solve the black-and-gold brand’s most chilling Superstar when he steps in the ring with Lumis? NXT Champion Adam Cole and company began having problems with Lumis last month. Cole & Strong seemed to essentially find themselves in a Handicap Match against The Velveteen Dream after Damian Priest took out Keith Lee, but Lumis stepped in as Dream’s partner in impromptu fashion and helped Dream pin Cole. The enigmatic Lumis again turned up at Cole’s NXT Title defense against Dream two weeks later, this time to thwart Strong and Bobby Fish’s attempted interference. As a result, NXT’s most dominant faction is tapping The Messiah of the Backbreaker as its chosen mercenary. But will Lumis turn the hunter into the hunted?

>Kushida faces Drake Maverick to close out Group A in the Interim NXT Cruiserweight Title Tournament
> Drake Maverick can still keep his dreams alive in the Interim NXT Cruiserweight Title Tournament, but what awaits him figures to be his toughest challenge as he goes one-on-one with Kushida. It’s a truly dire situation for Maverick in the Tournament’s final night of group competition. With a win, Maverick (1-1) would force a three-way tie atop Group A. Jake Atlas (2-1) previously lost to Kushida (2-0), but he defeated Maverick. Meanwhile, a victory for Kushida sends him to the Interim Cruiserweight Title Match opposite the winner of Group B. NXT’s resident Time Splitter has been as impressive as any Superstar in the tournament, using his armbar to not only submit Atlas and Tony Nese, but send them straight to the injury report after their bouts. Will Kushida punch his ticket for a title opportunity, or can Maverick overcome the odds to muck up the standings?

>El Hijo del Fantasma collides with Akira Tozawa to determine Group B winner
>That El Hijo del Fantasma controls his own destiny and is a single victory away from winning Group B is quite a testament to the competitor’s mental toughness. Not only has the newcomer burst onto the scene by dazzling the NXT Universe with a pair of barnburners against Gentleman Jack Gallagher (a win) and Isaiah “Swerve” Scott (a loss), he has done so wh…

Since almost everybody has come back and every big match has been done to death, what do you think are the biggest matches left that have never happened?

Stone Cold vs CM Punk
Cena vs Goldberg
Stone Cold vs Lesnar
HBK vs Daniel Bryan
New Jack vs Nick Gage

Anything else really left or is this it right here as far as 'wrestlemania main event worthy matches' go?

On a similar note, ICP said that Sting jokingly made a comment to them about having a copyright on black and white face paint. I think Sting was just a goofy dude backstage.

Sidenote, I thought the Crow gimmick only worked during that year+ period where Sting didn't wrestle. Visually, it was great, but as soon as Crow Sting started talking and making silly faces like the same old surfer, it ruined it. The look didn't match how he acted.

Cross Rhodes is a bad finisher

This gif is old and I just grabbed it off a search and not saying this one in particular looks the worst. They almost always look bad.

The crossrhodes looks so bad! Opponents take it differently all the time and sometimes they can make it look good but the move almost always just looks weak and stupid. It's just a bad finisher for a guy who is a big player now. You can argue about the Peoples Elbow or other bad finishers done by my eventers but the cross rhodes just LOOKS bad. It looks like the guy doing it gets hurt more and sometimes it just looks like a rolling hug.

I think the art of a finishing move can sometimes be lost. The Judas Effect is a great example of a finishing move done right. When Jericho first did that move hyped it up before hand and when he did it I thought it was stupid as hell. "A back elbow?" I said. But then he kept murdering opponents with it and it became a powerful move. It became a move you have to avoid or he will kill you. Wrestling is fake. Book the move to be strong and it becomes strong. Finishing moves should be important and matter. This is why kickout spam can hurt a lot of finishing moves and be bad in the long run. It can be done on rare occasions for big stakes matches but I really think you risk making your move look weak doing that.

Now Cody has a finishing move that HAS won matches and isn't truely a victim of kickout spam(although people kick out of it often). It just straight up looks bad. So if the move looks bad it is up to the wrestler or the booker to make the move feared. Sadly Cody has done this shitty move across promotions forever and at this point I feel nothing when I see him setting up for it. It looks bad AND it's a poorly booked finisher.

He needs a new one and in general I think wrestlers should try to keep their finisher special. If you're going to lose the match maybe don't even get a chance to hit the move or just have them reverse it or other creative ways around it. Don't just have the opponent kick out of your move that should win matches.



This isn't an AEW dogpile thread...stupid that I even need to say this.

I mean any move can be booked properly, it helps but it doesn't make the move good. Judas effect is dumb to me because it's on the level of the KO punch of moves that could be hit at any time and just aren't for some reason. I do appreciate Jericho trying something different since AEW has an abundance of guys doing kicks and knee strikes, but idk the back elbow just doesn't look good most of the time.

That was really scummy and made them at least somewhat at fault, whether they'll ever take any kind of blame is doubtful though. The "nicest" thing they've done is just scrap airing the rest of the episodes.
But yeah, her death was a combination of factors, one of which was related to callout/cancel culture going in on her because of a goddamn dumbass reality TV show intentionally wanting her to look bad for drama, which lead to twitter stans relentlessly harassing her not just with typical twitter posting, but tagging and posting on her profile itself.
Part of me has been wondering if her not making her account private or just completely ditching social media entirely was because an agent, producer, and/or promoter forced her to be on social media to advertise the show she was on and things of that nature?
We'll likely never find that out...

But that would point to someone having to shoulder the blame by forcing someone with depression problems to use social media somewhat against their will (especially if it was in writing that they had to), despite there being examples where people with mental illnesses can wind up way worse off by using them, and ones that don't being able to reclaim some happiness and mental stability by staying away from them.

I know people that have mental illnesses who have told me that theirs was far worse when using them compared to when they deactivated them and still never came back. Sometimes not bothering with any of that can be far better for your mental state and overall wellness. Just find different ways to stay in touch with people you care about. It worked before social media became this all encompassing part of people's lives. It can and does obviously work again.

Now they've got two pillars to build around. Shida on the face side and Britt Baker on the heel side.

Statlander, Nyla Rose, Riho and Bea Priestley are good upper mid cadet to main eventers, and Penelope Ford, Swole, Anna Jay, and Shanna are good future prospects

Literally the ONLY thing wrong with Brodie is the Dark Order. He should not be their leader. Him being the head of D.O takes away from the faction be mysterious, dangerous and cult like. It was actually better without a leader. Brodie NEEDS to be solo. He has it in him - this just isn't the best fit and that is very, very obvious from his promos to his attire.

I mean she ain't wrong. Like didn't companies like AJW and JWP used to recruit women that had athletic backgrounds in the 80s and 90s and now it's all wannabe idols and shit like that? I guess the decrease in its popularity and not being as lucrative as other idol related careers.

Yeah, the tryout requirements just to become a trainee were incredibly tough, to the point that several that failed with Zenjo went and tried out with JWP (Mayumi Ozaki comes to mind), though in Zenjo's case they were strict all the way up to the end - not a lot of their trainees were what I'd call "idols," bar a few (Kayo Noumi).

Joshi's popularity fell hard around 1997-1998, and it's never recovered, whether due to too many promotions running - like now, where there is TEN PROMOTIONS and only around 120 or so wrestlers - or a lack of money to draw new talent in.

Hell, even Stardom nearly died before Bushiroad bought the promotion from Rossy, because despite good houses in Tokyo, he was losing money hand over fist (like every other promotion he's run, come to think of it) and the promotion had stagnated in terms of growth.

A year ago (well, a few days away), AEW finally put on a show of their own, after a few months of hyping up their debut and certain people in the industry instantly calling them the number 2 promotion around despite the fact they had nothing in their name to show off before this event. 11,000 people packed the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and they were going to return again to the same place this year....until corona happened, so it'll be at Daily's Place in Jacksonville with nothing but the wrestlers watching ringside.

Here is the card...there's been a few injuries lately so there have been some adjustments.

> AEW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP: Jon Moxley (c) vs. Brodie Lee

> AEW WOMEN'S WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP (NO DQ/NO COUNT-OUT): Nyla Rose (c) vs. Hikaru Shida

> AEW TNT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: Cody vs. Lance Archer - Mike Tyson to present title to the winner.

> CASINO LADDER MATCH: Darby Allin vs. Colt Cabana vs. Orange Cassidy vs. Joey Janela vs. Scorpio Sky vs. Kip Sabian vs. Frankie Kazarian vs. Luchasaurus vs. TBA (Mystery Entrant) - Winner receives future AEW World Championship Match.

> STADIUM STAMPEDE MATCH: The Elite (Kenny Omega, Hangman Page, The Young Bucks and Matt Hardy) vs. Inner Circle (Chris Jericho, Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Santana, and Ortiz)

> MJF vs. Jungle Boy

> Penelope Ford vs. Kris Statlander

> Dustin Rhodes vs. Shawn Spears

> THE BUY IN: Best Friends vs. Private Party - Winners are the number one contenders for AEW World Tag Team Championship.

Damn. Well, here's to hoping the real thing looks mostly like that whenever it is finished.
