    The crappy thing about NXT on USA -- the commercial breaks during matches. That was one of the great things about NXT on the Network -- balls to the wall action without any breaks (at least for the TV crowd).

    The first year or two they did the draft, they kinda did it a little more like the NFL and NBA, where the pick got analyzed a bit with their height and weight and their strengths. Then they did it how you said it, with the GMs taking center stage.

    I liked the show, until the end. We got a street fight, with no finish. Yep.

    You're probably right. There's no way they'd put some of their top names -- the ones who would be logical first- and second-round picks -- back on NXT since they need them to sell tickets to the shows that will be touring, and NXT fills Full Sail with anyone they put out there.

    MJF is a trolling god. He's one of the wrestlers I'm most looking forward to seeing regularly when AEW starts. D&D fans across the Internet are going nuts and have no clue they're being trolled by a world-class heel.

    Initial rating look like 1.1-1.2 million. Not bad. Half-ish Raw and Smackdowns regular audience. Wonder what bar that sets for AEW?

    4th for night on cable is good for sure

    Either the Fiend is going to get his biggest gets yet, or Miz is going to sacrifice himself.

    One thing that would be cool with the Fiend, and I'm wondering if him using the Mandible Claw is a hint of this, would be to "steal" the signature moves of the legends he takes out.
    Maybe start using a Tombstone or choke slam from Kane, Hogan's leg drop, Flair's Figure 4. Like he's stealing a little piece of them and their souls as he goes through the legends roster.

    I'm sorry, but I just can't believe Braun being disabled by someone with a couple fingers in his mouth.
