It’s astounding how much better NXT is than the rest of WWE’s programming. Like, unbelievable. Watching NXT Takeover REvolution (okay, the special event names suck) last night I realized, along with many others, that there’s no way TLC & Stairs! can compete with it. I know there are certain unavoidable things that help NXT come across as a more streamlined show, like the hour long length and the lack of sponsorships and promotions keep there from being too much filler. But still it emphasizes wrestling over everything else and that makes all the difference. I used to look forward to new talent like Zayn and Charlotte getting called up to Raw and Smackdown. Now I dread it.
