NXT- 5 Points to Note (7th March, 2018)
An incredible episode with massive WrestleMania weekend implications.
One hour of action! Like a shot of caffeine, it hits you right away. Unlike the long-winded approach of RAW, NXT delivers its message in a crisp, powerful way. Unlike the underwhelming approach of SmackDown Live, every storyline and feud has a great deal of logic.
This week, we continued our journey towards all the action that will unfold at New Orleans. The Dusty Rhodes Classic kicked off and two forces of nature collided in the main event. There was not a dull moment across the hour-long show.
We have captured the highlights of the show and presented them to you in these 5 points. Do let us know what you thought of this week's entertaining WWE NXT episode in the comments.
Here is our analysis of this highly explosive show!
#5 Not a word was said
In the world of today, where it is so difficult for a heel to get over because the business has been exposed, we must commend Tommaso Ciampa for the incredible job he did. Shortly after the NXT departure of his former best friend, Johnny Gargano, Ciampa stepped into the ringside area and was greeted by a chorus of jeers and boos.
Ciampa seemed like he would cut a promo on the situation. However, he did not say a word through the course of this segment. It was when the audience chanted 'we want Johnny', that he did something very heelish.
He came to an audience member, picked up his Johnny Gargano sign and destroyed it, before the crowd. It was masterfully done, and Ciampa cemented his place as the top heel in all of NXT with this very move.
We do not doubt that Ciampa vs. Gargano is on the cards someday and when it does happen, the match will be an emotional experience!
