Just a quick note here before I get started. This Sunday is Elimination Chamber and we’ll be doing a special one-hour post-PPV show starting at 11pm EST at www.morelikeradio.com/live. You’re all welcome to stop by our live chatroom and interact with the hosts.
Well, here we are, the last NXT before the WWE Network goes live. Next week’s NXT is being billed as the first ever NXT PPV and called “Arrival” with some goofy capitalization gimmick that allows WWE to copyright it. I won’t state the obvious here, I promise. However, the kickoff show will have Kevin Nash, Bret Hart & Paul Heyman on as their expert panel. That should be interesting considering the outright contempt Nash has had for Hart in every shoot interview he’s ever done.
Our announce team continues to be Tensai (face), Tom Phillips (straight) and Byron Saxton (heel). This week the announcers did a much better job sticking to their gimmick. Byron is definitely better at announcing than Tensai as he seems more able to verbally joust. The production team needs to do a better job of checking audio levels though as Byron’s mic was very low.
It may be Fall, but that doesn’t mean that Summer won’t make its presence felt, that is, if your name is Summer Rae. At Hell In A Cell, Summer Rae competed in her first main roster/PPV match when she teamed up with Fandango in mixed tag team action against Natalya and The Great Khali. The match was mainly centered around Natalya and Summer Rae due to their ringside altercations weeks prior to the PPV. In the end, it was Summer Rae that picked up the win after a roll up on the third-generation diva.
