    I'll be giving it serious consideration depending on the card.

    You reckon it sell out the 3Arena? I definitely will be going hoping Balor and Joe aren't called up by then

    Wouldn't be surprised to see him interfere in someone's match, as you said, why else would they show him off like that?

    I wouldn't say no to a feud with Nakamura

    Wonderful opener. Of course NXT comes to Dublin the week I'm out of the country.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,216 ✭✭✭Looper007


    Crobin is just a natural born heel isn't he. Going by NXT show they did on WWE network. But he's one of the most improved workers on NXT, working with Joe and other top pros certainly has rubbed off on him.

    Was this the first time the Dublin gig was announced? 8 Prazcky is making me far too excited for everything this weekend. One ear is NXT, the other is AE Podcasts X-Seven review right now. But... holy ****!!!

    (Don't know why I've been lurking with an account for years without posting in this neck of the woods but hi etc.)

    I hope I'm wrong but I think he's a guaranteed wyatt family member sooner or later.

    Is this just a two hour show?

    Two and a half, going by the schedule.

    Think so, I heard Taker has taken him under his wing. Could be a great American Badass type heel for Reigns to face. I think he would have been then Strowman in the Wyatt Family but seen how they've been used I rather they kept him away. I see a bright future for Crobin.

    Corbin reminds me of a Streets Of Rage boss. Which I like. Probably not advocating for a big main event push (which is cancer for thought these days anyway - not everyone from NXT needs to go main event on Raw) but he's a big dopey goon.

    Wrestling is lacking big dopey goons.

    Only 31 as well. That'd be old for anyone else debuting on the main roster but he could wrestle well into his 40s with his style.

    Being in the Wyatt family is a death knell at this point. May as well be Mideon in the Ministry.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,216 ✭✭✭Looper007


    Great Deep 6 move on the outside by crobin.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 100 ✭✭mullyboyee


    Corbin is a proper piece of **** heel. He could do well in WWE


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,216 ✭✭✭Looper007


    Not a great match, was expecting something better.


  • Registered Users Posts: 595 ✭✭✭DepecheHead101


    I like how Aries theme sounds like all those 500 TNA themes that all had synth strings and brass in them.

    I'm not even sure is that musically correct but... he's got a TNA esque choon.


  • Registered Users Posts: 894 ✭✭✭cian68


    NXT audience hasn't been given much reason to root for Aries, including that fairly nothing match. I spent it creating a narrative in my head that Ibushi had to go to NXT to get his win over Nakamura.


  • Registered Users Posts: 595 ✭✭✭DepecheHead101


    Yes. Here we go!


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 689 ✭✭✭Straight Edge Punk


    Well I can't go to sleep and miss this match, this is my pick for match of the weekend.

    Bit early to be putting Nakamura vs Zayn on. Expected this to be inbetween the Bayley/asuka and Balor/Joe matches.

    Does this await him too?!

    My 8 year old godson is already obsessed with Nakamura because "he has a weird face".

    Winner.


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 689 ✭✭✭Straight Edge Punk


    I'm delighted to see Scott Hall looking so well.

    God I hope they never turn Sami heel, he needs this music from now until the day he retires.

    I doubt it,they'd definitely sell out if they where too choose a smaller venue,which would be able to create the hot atmosphere that we all love about NXT. Likewise.

    Thread is about to go quiet for 15-25 minutes.

    The spirit of Jim Johnson split into a MIDI riff on the Casio keyboard used at your nans wedding.

    Good tune I suppose.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,102 ✭✭✭✭J. Marston


    Does Nakamura speak English?

    Don't think much of Nakamura's theme, but I frigging love that man.
