    Then came the diva seasons. From that season we have gained a backing dancer, a girlfriend to a fired GM, a badly treated former girlfriend of a former WHC, a fired giant (personally I think they should have kept her) and a crazy woman who isn't sure who, in the current season of NXTm she is dating/screwing/marrying etc... So a pretty pointless group. Obviously I'm very glad that Kaitlyn got a contract. But the divas that got contracts (AJ and Kaitlyn) rarely make it to the big two shows (unless you count AJ being on DB's leash).

    Since season 3 the show has got worse and the competitors less interesting. The current season is likely to surpass RAW as the longest running weekly episodic show. So was the divas show the nail in the coffin or was it going to get this shit anyway.
    I'd have to consider the diva "season" a TREMENDOUS success. Look how many top-quality wrestlers came out of it, and the incredible boost they've given the women's division. Best athlete now a go-go dancer, one is Teddy Longs' umpteenth pretend girlfriend, one plays a just-dumped GF of the most-buried active champ in history, Kaitlyn's hot appearance was altered so she looks just like everyone else...now that's what I call wrestling, baby!--SWManor, career smart-ass

    Yeah it should. But does it need to be re-named just because the concept of the show has changed?
    To me, NXT is WWE's 4th show. I've forgoten about what the old concept was. To me, it's just another wrestling show now.

    and really, while there have been a few other NXT guys that have won titles, other than Bryan and Wade, it didn't seem to do much for them. The Nexus angle, which could have saved NXT (In my less than humble opinion) was just completely wasted.



    I think they explain it with that clip, but I can't watch it at work


    Say my name and his in the same breath, I dare you to say they taste they same.

    You have to take into account that these guys (apart from DBD) had been kicking around FCW for quite a while and were the upper echelon of that promotion, on the verge of being brought up anyway. Season 2 came around WAY too quickly and there was no real clear sign of exactly how long each series would run. It was a schemozzle!

    Season 3 was awesome. Trash TV at it's finest.
    I'd rather have nothing than have a lie.

    Anyone else notice the level of pro they had working with the rookies in season. Who did Titus O'Neill have this season........?
