  1. That's a nice facility. Wonder how much Vince pocketed from the good people of Florida to build there.

  2. 5 minutes in and we already have two pre packaged promos that is trying to sell us on the WWE brand, basically.

    "i can't get a real sense of these guys. can we do this in an airport?"

  4. Third meaningless video. Yay.

    ReplyDelete
  5. As well as some snappy Kevin Nash.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Anyone having streaming issues?
    My iphone wont work and my computer at work wont either. It is also a piece of shit so that could be a reason.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Working OK for me on Chrome w/Windows 7 laptop.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Video packages aside, that was a pretty good Rollins promo...

    ReplyDelete
  9. Now it works on my iphone

    ReplyDelete
  10. Working fine for me on the PS4.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Working fine on my Roku.

    ReplyDelete
  12. So is this a PPV type card where Zayn vs. Cesaro could get 20 minutes? Or is this a regular episode with commercials and "big" matches?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Bret and Nash would make an amazing announce team. Bret the straight man to Nash's, well... Nash.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Bret also likes the Wyatt's because their beards remind him of Neidhart.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Love the Shield arguing over the type of animal the Wyatt mask is.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm in. Looks like they severely oversold the show though probably about 100+ people with tickets posed off outside because they ran out of seats.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'll be watching the 11 PM replay.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Not sure, but I think it's 2 hours anyway with only 3 announced matches, so Zayn/Cesaro could definitely get time.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Well, I'm hoping they brought Nash, Hart, and Heyman there for legitimate purposes. To fly them in a pay them for this 100% kayfabe pre-show seems like kind of a waste.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Idiot being interviewed by Heyman wants a selfie first.

    ReplyDelete
  21. They're perfect for this kind of show, treating it like a sport and whatnot.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I hope so. Not only because of the potential quality involved, but also because I really hate when 2/3 Falls matches go less than 15 minutes.

    ReplyDelete
  23. "NxT is the future, whoo.." Ugh.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I was waiting for Tyler Breeze to come out.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Paul Heyman is way too valuable to be used to interview the crowd. But he's doing a damn fine job of it.


    Speaking of damn fine, back to you, Renee...

    ReplyDelete
  26. LOVE Nash's checked blazer too.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Like anyone is watching for something other than Zayn/Cesaro.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Well it's not 2 out of 3 falls but I doubt it gets less than 20 minutes.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Your_Favourite_LoserFebruary 27, 2014 at 5:45 PM

    so... people in the crowd just said that they're there for the product and not anyone in particular.

    sound like a familiar booking philosophy...?

    ReplyDelete
  30. I agree. I bought it with their last one though, because they sold it as Zayn got the first fall immediately in a fluke, and Cesaro got the second fall essentially because Zayn tapped so he would be able to have a chance for the third fall (whereas he probably doesn't tap in a one fall match).

    ReplyDelete
  31. The ladder match should be good. In fact, so should the women's match.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Good video packages tonight

    ReplyDelete
  33. Are you sure? My understanding is it is.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Seriously, they just built that NXT women's championship match better than the Royal Rumble.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I don't think they know any of the matches.

    ReplyDelete
  36. 'Will have to face Ric Flair's 7' tall daughter Charlotte...'

    i'll amend my stance to say that emma is attractive as long as she doesn't move her mouth or anything. once she smiles or talks or makes facial expressions, she starts to look funky

    ReplyDelete
  38. Last match was 2 out of 3 falls. I don't think they've ever said this inner is as well.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Her "character" is a bit off. Maybe she's trying to be a quirky Zooey Daschenel type?

    ReplyDelete
  40. Haha,I found a link to watch the ppv.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Dark match starting. Sylvester LeFort vs Mason Ryan. Gah

    ReplyDelete
  42. We also don't know who's going to win tonight, which is cool.

    ReplyDelete
  43. EmmaXT...cute.

    BTW, if this was a different era, Nattie totally turns.

    ReplyDelete
  44. As much as I would like to watch this, the stream is already getting very rough on the pre-show, constantly buffering, but not giving up yet.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Your_Favourite_LoserFebruary 27, 2014 at 5:48 PM

    nattie's gonna turn heel on emma, isn't she?

    ReplyDelete
  46. If Dusty still has the pencil, yes.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I know it was, but I'm 100% positive I've read the rematch is also 2 out of 3 falls, but I don't recall exactly where so it's possible that it's not official, and whoever wrote that was mistaken. Wikipedia also lists it as 2 out of 3 falls, not sourced though so it could be someone mistakenly putting it (but wikipedia isn't where I read it, today was the first time I checked it).

    ReplyDelete
  48. What is Paige's accent?

    ReplyDelete
  49. Your_Favourite_LoserFebruary 27, 2014 at 5:50 PM

    paige's eyebrows should count as outside intereference

    ReplyDelete
  50. It wouldn't happen to be in a First Row, would it.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Can someone explain who's the big babyface of NXT,and who's the Heel ?

    ReplyDelete
  52. Your_Favourite_LoserFebruary 27, 2014 at 5:50 PM

    IT'S DIALECT, OMFG IT'S DIALECT - DONT YOU KNOW ANYTHING

    ReplyDelete
  53. I wonder if Nash and Bret are playing footsie under the table.

    ReplyDelete
  54. That's the match I most want to see, but I'm looking forward to all of the announced matches, actually.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I can't believe they started to insult each other.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Your_Favourite_LoserFebruary 27, 2014 at 5:51 PM

    hbk is under the table fellating them both

    ReplyDelete
  57. Bo Dallas is the heel champion. I'm not sure there's really one single top babyface. Adrian Neville has been booked as his main opponent lately, Sami Zayn is probably the most ever face.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Your_Favourite_LoserFebruary 27, 2014 at 5:53 PM

    i will always think of corey graves as good ol' SJK here in the steel city.

    glad to be able to say i saw him (and zima/shiima) before he hit the big time. he was definitely a standout in terms of his presence

    ReplyDelete
  59. I'd bet anything Dusty came up with the name ArRIVAL.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Also, oddly enough, Cesaro is a top heel on NXT. Odd because he's been there as much as the actual NXT guys, even though he's a main roster mainstay.

    ReplyDelete

    i know a link to watch all the ppv's

    it's network.wwe.com

    go away, bo. you're goofy looking and annoying

    ReplyDelete
  63. Ascension will defend the titles against "mystery opponents".

    ReplyDelete
  64. Not available in my country.

    ReplyDelete
  65. It really does suck that they couldn't get it available everywhere right away.

    ReplyDelete
  66. New Age Outlaws are going to take those titles too. I'm sad.

    ReplyDelete
  67. The funny thing is that was my very first thought too.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Nash is gonna hate the main,two Vanilla migdets are fighting.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Haha, yepppp.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I guarantee Nash agreed to half-ass his way through a pre-show so HHH would pick up the tab when he goes out drinking afterwards.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Cesaro/Zayn starting the show.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Cesaro-Zayn opening the show makes Witlon very happy.

    ReplyDelete

    Someone needs to do a character that's straight out of the Guy Ritchie flicks (we'll just ignore Swept Away here) and cut all his promos in Cockney slang.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Amsterdam_Adam_CurryFebruary 27, 2014 at 5:58 PM

    Insert shitty quad tear joke...

    ReplyDelete
  75. Knee and quads will meet hell.

    ReplyDelete
  76. He probably tore it sitting at the booth.

    ReplyDelete
  77. This preshow is way better than what WWE does. Kinda feels like a UFC preshow.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I don't want spoilers, so just a yes or no is fine, but has NXT already taped shows past here? i.e., are the winners of the title matches already known?

    ReplyDelete
  79. Your_Favourite_LoserFebruary 27, 2014 at 6:00 PM

    i wonder how many people will log out after the opening match

    ReplyDelete
  80. I was considering it until they gave the awesome build to Paige-Emma. I kinda wanna see that match now.
