    Some random thoughts

    Why is Carmella aligned with Enzo and Big Cass? She has no likable characteristics (Personality) in her current persona. She is not funny or particularly entertaining, unlike Enzo and Cass.

    Are Dillinger and Jordan doing something else on the house show circuit or are they a tag team?

    Bull Dempsey should cover up all the time, he looks more menacing in the tracksuit than the normal ring gear he wears. He could dress like a GTA gangster or something.

    Blue Pants! Blue Pants!

    Enzo, Cass and Carmella are a strange group since she comes across like a heel among the faces.

    Again, I find it weird how the guys who just moved up lost their match. I know they can't really make the guys staying look bad but it's like I've said before about ones being rewarded for losing the title.

    Anyone figure out what CJ was meant to do to humiliate Corbin?

    NXT has so much swagger now it's incredible.

    No, not that swagger!

    Assumed they were heels tbh. They don't come across as particularly face-ish even though they're popular. Enjoyed the main event good to see Itami getting the pin he looked great in the match too.

    Not many heels would interact with the fans like that

    Enzo and Cass are babyfaces. Carmella is/was a heel.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,848 ✭✭✭Pentecost

    I noticed watching this week there is lot of characters i really don't like on NXT but the good outweighs the bad, Cass, Amore and them scream crappy comedy like Adam Rose's lot

    and CJ Parker .....less said about him the better , Corbin and Bull are typical WWE types too nothing to be excited over, Corbin in particular his face betrays his body he has such a babyface which just does not look intimidating at all, The Vaudevillains too its an original gimmick but it just doesn't fit for me

    And then of course you have Owens, Zayn, Neville, Balor, Itami, Breeze, The ascension and the Lucha Dragons who i really love


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral


    It's so utterly ridiculously over and it's a massive rib and everyone's in on it, including ol' Blue Pants, and I love it. I just love it.

    Part of me wants to see Enzo and Big Cass get a spot on the Raw after Mania, and then go back to NXT. Give them to a crowd that understands them and you have a great moment, but I'm terrified the gimmick and all the fun stuff that goes with it will die once it leaves NXT.

    It's good for her that she just happened to connect with the smart ass crowd so they bring her back for the laugh. That's presuming she's not actually signed? I seem to recall reading she wasn't initially anyway?

    Yeah I think the Full Sail regulars know the lines etc but it could flop big time on the road

    As far as I know she's still unsigned. It would be great to see her get signed and have a decent shot. Pretty good talent and it would be a hell of a story to tell too!

    Blue Pants is the best part of NXT.


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral


    Like just look at that graphic for a minute, her actual name is Blue Pants. That is so incredible. I actually love it a lot more than I probably should. It makes me giddy.

    It does give off a sense of fun that you'd never get on the main shows. Carmella is fairly meh as a character but it's early days for her I guess. See how she is in 12 months or so.


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 23,089 ✭✭✭✭rovert


    Lads you are breaking my heart here. :P

    More or less what I've said in the past she's 31 which is old for a male wrestler there, a really poor Wrestler for her experience, can't talk/has a bad speaking voice, not athletic and doesn't have the requisite looks.

    Her pants got over via a fluke in front an "ironic" crowd. That's her appeal it was anything she actually did. If she wrestles in matches of any length she will be really exposed. The back bump she did was terrible and she has been Wrestling for years.

    I like this type of storyline/story in general but she ain't the overall wrestler 1-2-3 Kid was and she isn't the bumper Norv Fernum and Dewey Barnes were. She's actively bad wrestler.

    Personal thoughts aside I haven't heard anything about a contract and I have asked after all the tapings she has been on. But Triple H, Ryan Ward and everyone else really do like her as I said in the past. Which is rather fecking obvious as time goes on. :pac:

    The honest to goodness story is that the night she debuted and the Blue Pants chant started Triple H who was producing the show "popped huge" - in other words hysterically laughed. This very much has his endorsement.

    If this happened on WWE TV they would probably bring Leva back in different colour pants and had a heel annihilate her.

    I miss Dewey and Norv...


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,848 ✭✭✭Pentecost


    Ah if she's that limited I'm sure the joke will wear thin after a while. Unless she's a tremendous shag perhaps (a la Rosa Mendes er allegedly..)..I was going to say in my earlier post that I recalled you weren't a fan rovert.

    Don't want to be a dry sh*te but people have seemed to have lost their senses about her IMO. She hasn't really done much of anything in terms of her physical look, charisma and wrestling ability to get over. She's a clothes horse for a pair of pants.

    She's kind of anomaly I guess as even before she appeared on NXT I know people who wouldn't criticise her publicly for wrestling ability and some of her business dealings as they would actively alienate their followers/friends who were friends or followers of her. Just a really weird and specific deal. But there's a reason why she does a cosplay gimmick and largely a tag wrestler with a superior partner. She offers VERY little between the ropes.

    So your saying she has a chance?!

    No worse then Rosa, Cameron etc etc.


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 23,089 ✭✭✭✭rovert


    There's always a chance.

    Stand back for the next paragraph

    A funny/weird observation someone brought up to me about the women NXT recruits now ever since Triple H has taken over is that they all have interesting/larger noses compared to Johnny Ace hires. Leva has a very crooked nose that she's very self conscious about that makes her talk like boxer or someone with one open nostril.

    Neither of those went through this era of NXT. Cameron more or less bypassed developmental.

    A nose fetish! When did Trips start the hiring? As a recent-ish recruit, Becky's nose is grand. As I'm sure you of all people are aware :-)

    It is grand. Not like it is massive or anything but it is somewhat differently shaped. It isn't a specific observation or anything just a general one. I think it is just a subconcious thing due to Triple H having a larger nose.

    But who nose?
