Hiya! Tonight’s episode of NXT was mostly solid.
- Kinda curious to see who actually steps up to face Io next. Raquel declared she’s going after the title now, same goes for Toni and Mercedes. But all of them are tied up in the Dusty Cup, at least for now (I can’t imagine Raquel not being in it with Dakota).
- MSK was great. Loved what I saw, and hope to see more in the future. Their names are kinda goofy though.
- Didn’t really care for the Main Event, but maybe that’s because I’m kinda over Lorcan and Burch holding the tag titles, so this tournament as a whole isn’t that investing.
Speaking of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Classic, I have to imagine Toni and Mercedes are losing next week. I know that sounds unrealistic, but Io Shirai has a bone to pick with both Toni and Mercedes, so I can see her screwing them over. That being said, I really hope Io actually shows up again soon. It’s been 39 days since Io’s last match, 57 since her last singles match. That’s kind of absurd.
Speaking of absurd, here is my question of the week: Am I alone in dreading Rhea potentially going to RAW? Especially since the division is already back to being the Charlotte Flair show. Asuka was backstage, but they opted not to use her in any capacity, which probably didn’t sit well with her considering she had to fly out from Vegas during a pandemic, just to sit in catering.
