NXT: 5 Points to Note (August 30, 2017)
An explosive main event, and lots more action this week.
As we embark on a brand new era of NXT, we feel like this was quite a promising start. NXT has a new champion, brand new tag team champions and a woman whose future is uncertain, leading the women's division. At the same time, there are a bunch of renegades running things, blindsiding people when they least expect it to happen.
This was an entertaining episode, enveloped in chaos. The chaos should bleed out until the next Takeover event, where we should ideally see some kind of resolution with regard to the current matter. How did the first episode in the fallout of NXT Takeover: Brooklyn III play out? We list 5 points to note!
#5 Chaos reigns supreme in NXT
Remember how NXT used to be once the most exciting WWE brand and we couldn't wait to tune in every single week? We believe that the rogue crew of Adam Cole, Kyle O'Reilly and Bobby Fish will bring back some of that thrill to the product, in the weeks that follow. The show began with the entire locker room seen laid out backstage, almost in new like fashion. The show closed with the three weaselly men ganging up on the NXT Champion, Drew McIntyre, and being chased out of the arena by NXT GM, William Regal.
The cloud of uncertainty that hangs over Full Sail Arena, with regard to the objectives of these three men keeps the product fresh and interesting, to us. What are their motives and what devious plans do they have next? Is Adam Cole next in line for McIntyre's Championship? Are reDragon gunning for SAnitY's belts, in the coming weeks on NXT?
This particular angle was the most thrilling thing on the show, but we also saw the culmination of an old feud.
