    Leave the dancing to Naomi Lana. I don't want to see that make it to TV.

    Too late. They are already running promos for this gimmick.

    I guess they could always pull an Emma and call it back, though... Wonder if she's going to keep the accent.

    They can always change the gimmick for her not to be a dancer. Make her Emmalina. She got over just for being hot anyway.

    Even the other orlando crowd is better when they do outside of full sail the shows are better

    Full sail deserves squash matches and endless promos, they need to do that for nxt

    I remember in 2013 the crowd was mostly full of kids and their parents

    It was better

    Now it has become impact zone. I hated those crowds

    I hate the nxt chant.

    The crowds in australia, osaka, brooklyn, and san antonio were better

    I hate full sail more than uk crowds

    Potential major injury happened at today's NXT tapings, could possibly be considered as a tapings spoiler so I'll put it behind a tag.
    Ember Moon got knocked off the top rope to the floor, in doing so she "essentially did a suicide dive and nailed the guardrail with her shoulder".
    Apparently she was seen crying and was helped to the back by medics.

    Well fuck.
    Here's hoping they can build up the rest of the division because if she's out on injury, then Asuka won't have anyone legit to have a program with.

    Asuka wiped the women division in the battle Royal and it ended in a no contest. If Moon is really injured then NXT women division is fucked.

    Response to this in tag since it contains major tapings spoilers.
    Luckily, NXT have a pretty easy way of getting around this. Asuka was scheduled to defend in a Fatal 4 Way between her Ember Moon, Nikki Cross and Ruby Riot at Takeover.

    This is because Asuka beat them all down when they were the final 3 participants in a battle Royale to determine the number 1 contender.

    So they could either take Ember out of the match or they could replace her.

    The nxt women need more debuts. Mary Kate, Kimberly, Ruby Riot. They are all pretty damn good. We still have hojo and apparently io to come up.

    Wwe need to just sign up deonna purazo, rachel ellering, and santana garrett already.

    Also apparently we got
    candice larae in that battle royal.

    Honestly it will take time. If Asuka is to be defeated by anybody, i would give it to mandy rose for the heat.

    Aaliyah, liv and Kayla braxton are too cute

    Of course enzo is smashing liv

    This was long overdue..............I read the crowd erupted when she walked down the aisle.

    As far as Ember's injury..............it sucks.
    Before joining WWE, she had a serious shoulder injury that would've hurt her chances with WWE had she not took care of it ASAP.
    I hope it's not the same one.

    As for this injury hurting the Women's division..............not really.
    There are already women coming up that can potentially be the one to dethrone Asuka.

    Might as well just run with it, call her up to SmackDown as a Lesnar-esque monster heel who's on the show because she's looking for a challenge since NXT "disappointed" her. At the same time, have the NXT women's midcard fight for the number one contendership and who "can beat Asuka" and, if they really need titles, give us a women's tag title (Peyton and Billie are already perfect for this).

    That said, if they really need someone to go against Asuka, the closest I can think of is Nikki Cross, at least as a filler program until Ember comes back or the new signings get over. The problem with this is that she's a heel and running with Sanity, which would ruin Asuka's heel turn.

    Really...........I can name a few more that can be "the one" to dethrone Asuka:

    Ruby Riot
    Peyton and/or Billie
    Andrea
    Kimber Lee
    Daria (Sonya)

    Peyton and Billie don't belong anywhere near that list. Not with their current gimmick and not as heels, unless you want to waste Asuka's heel turn.

    I can't see Peyton and Billie being able to even if they gang up on her. Those two can't beat Liv Morgan clean.

    The issue is though...........is Asuka really a heel to the crowd?
    She rarely gets booed (I partly blame the Full Sail Crowd).
    If anything.........Peyton and Billie can gain MASSIVE heat for dethroning Asuka by actually cheating the next time.

    More importantly, anyone else aside from Ember would need months of build up, which would further delay Asuka getting callef up.

    Even if Full Sail didn't fuck up the heel turn it would still be difficult to boo her. This is the most badass she's been in her NXT run. How can I boo her?

    To be fair..........Asuka apparently does not want to called up so soon. I doubt she will since the Superstar Shakeup and WM week already happened.
    Also..........HHH and the creative team are debating whether or not they want Asuka to arrive the main roster undefeated.

    As far as Peyton and Billie go............I get what you guys are saying. Weird booking on them.
    I do keep mentioning Peyton/Billie because it was heavily rumored that creative wants to put the belt on Peyton this year.

    Still........that leaves Kimber Lee, Ruby Riot, Nikki Cross, Sonya (Daria), and maybe Andrea.
    Hell even whoever wins the upcoming Women's tournament can get a shot.

    The problem is that NXT women's hasn't built up any main event faces aside from Ember. Dodging the Eclipse with the referee assist was a great move that helped build her as a heel/tweener and could have been the setup for an even bigger swerve down the line.

    Ey/tye is a good match with a blade job. Old school nwa style cage match.

    Sara Lee got voted in by aj fans because she looked cute

    Mandy Rose actually made it to tv and house shows.

    Yeah.............Mandy Rose should've won.
    I already said that if the voting was simply up to the WWE staff..............Sara and ZZ would've been outsed the 2nd episode.
    At least ZZ lost weight and is working the indie scene.
    Please........no more Tough Enough.

    As for Josh:
    It was reported that Josh got a massive concussion during one match.............and he's pretty much on the shelf.
