So this discussion isn't anything to do with Satin or his credibility blah blah blah but more a discussion on his initial point of NXT needing a new big program.

Now I don't watch the weekly shows but do and try and keep up with what's going on and I do have to agree with him. It really feels like they need a post WrestleMania draft where TUE and Gargano and maybe one or two of the females are moved off the brand to allow for the other guys on the roster to move up on the card.

Finn/Dream could be a great feud for the top title. Throw in a Riddle or Keith Lee at the top of the card and things will start to feel fresher again.

Kyle O'Reilly......shit the only thing he does is play Air guitar. Why would anyone care about a face turn?

NXT needs an infusion of legit stars and maybe people will care about their programming.

I agree that NXT needs a top name. When WWE does their Superstar Shakeup this year, I say take a chance and send a top name to NXT. A name that hasn’t been a mainstay down there. A Braun or a Sheamus

Kylie will be a terrible babyface. I know this may sound harsh but it is true. He doesn't stand out as a face to me. If you want the next big top face then you should turn Roderick Strong or bring someone from the main roster to fill the void. I would say send Aleister Black back down there but he did everything in the main event spot. Maybe a Cesaro or Naka.

Post-Mania UE, Baszler, Belair need to go to the main roster.

Riddle needs to be the face of the show; the likes of Kai, Shirai, Yim etc need to all get tons of TV time as they're the money in the women's division.

Garza needs a big NXT push too.

At this point it's hard to envision an NXT where TUE and DIY aren't the center of attention, they've been at the top so long.

Can the performance center recruit some guys who actually look like stars and have some charisma?

Enough with the sub 6 ft, sub 200lb indy workrate charisma vacuums or 205 Live cruiserweights. The roster is filled with them.

NXT has not had a legit heavyweight champion since 2017. Keith Lee and Dijakovic have good size but they are too busy flipping around and doing dives like cruiserweights.

Outside of Dream there is literally zero star power on the current NXT roster.

Riddle, Dain and Priest all have pretty good size as well.

Don't agree at all that Dream is the only guy on the roster with star power though.

Dain is just a fat guy, hardly looks like a star.

Priest is another big guy that acts like a cruiserweight.

Riddle has a shot, his mic work is pretty awful though.

When I’m talking star potential, I’m talking larger than life personalities/characters with charisma who look and act like stars. Someone who can attract the causal fan outside of the smarks.

Look at the boost in ratings Smackdown got from Goldberg. Granted he’s a shell of his former self but he still looks and feels like a star.

Look at a Tyson Fury for boxing or McGregor for MMA. These guys are massive draws because of their charisma. NXT doesn’t have anyone even close to these guys in terms of charisma/drawing power.

Riddle can definitely be that guy in NXT. It's pretty clear to see the connection he has with the audience. Plus he's very meme-able, if that's a thing. I heard of him back when he was in UFC because of that whacky rant he did on British people in the post-show press conference.

I’m eagerly awaiting the debut of Killer Cross. I don’t know much about him, but he’s got an interesting persona. Especially if they pair him with Scarlett.

Added Impact Wrestling Slammiversary to the Prediction Schedule - as with Fyter Fest, if the show is recorded before hand then the title will not be defended at it.
Gonna be watching that new season tonight when I get off work.

Right now, the chat doesn't seem to be connected. :cudi so when the show starts, post in the thread until we know or not. But it's good to stay in it until we know.
