Hi all! Short time reader (pretty much just the NXT 3 threads), first time poster. Know I'm a bit late to the party but this thread is too awesome not to be a part of, kudos to everyone here. I agree with most of you in that I <3 Kaitlyn (or as I like to call her, Greatlyn) and am a Cole Miner. I'm just getting into him so I'm not a major fan yet, just a minor Miner.

Reading here everyone seems to agree last week was better and while I concur, really there's only 2 things last week did better:
1) More Kaitlyn being awesome
2) GONG! GONG! GONG!

With the addition of the fantastic CM Punk (I swear it's so good it would turn him face if people watched NXT), full-heel Cole & Aksana having a bit of a breakout, there were some major "improvements" this week. Plus you had Layla proving that she's just behind Jillian for most wasted Diva. Her Jamie mockery was great, especially her basically printing out for Jamie a Google Map with directions on when to attack her and Jamie still not figuring it out. That said I don't get all the Jamie hate here, she did pretty well on her promo- while getting DQ'd she got a win in our hearts. Dunno if Naomi/Nadine would've thought to do the same thing if Jamie hadn't.

What I love about Kaitlyn is her ability to pull out victories even in defeat- like the chairs & her promo which she kinda blew but completely redeemed herself at the end. I don't think I like this Face Kaitlyn idea as it kills one of my fav things about her: all the mannerisms supporting Vickie, even when Vickie was belittling her. She's a "cool heel" so she'd turn face eventually anyways, and other than Maxine (who could be a competent classic mean girl) there's no other heel rookies on the show so I'd kind of like her to stay bad for now.

I think it's because RAW is a "serious" show he has to straddle the Evil Cole & straight play-by-play man. Plus he does overdo his verbal BJs to the Miz, and I was a Mizfit long before it was cool. There's never been a heel PBP guy before so he's got no role models, plus he's never been more than a corporate whore announcer until very recently. I have faith he'll find his ground, it's a shock he's done this well when you think of it.

One of my fav things about this NXT is the debut of Punk's new catchphrase which they really need to make a t-shirt of, pronto. For now it's my sig...

Welcome to the party. Your avatar scared me and made me think the real Kaitlyn was here and mad at me. It's happened to me before.

On the bright side, he'd get to wear a nice party dress.

Mission accomplished!

Immediately after the "Spear, spear, spear", Kaitlyn & Jamie spend a full 6 seconds standing/wallowing around trying to decide what to do next. It is clearly a "No, get on the other side.", Kaitlyn steps over Jamie, "What, like this way?", pointing at the ring, an audible "Right there, right there.", Michelle audibly saying "C'mon y'all, lets go, lets go."

It's entirely possible that Jamie was (or felt she was) hurt, & needed to change the plan, but neither of them had either the presence of mind or the skills to be able to do so without completely stopping & renegotiating. You can stop & discuss during run-through. You cannot stop & discuss in front of the audience. "Stall & replan" is clearly a skill that neither of them has figured out!

More impressive though: Y'all were so amused by the announcers, & by Michelle & Layla trying to distract from the mess, that nobody here noticed?!? Imagine the multitude of sins that a strategically timed wardrobe malfunction could cover up.

(Meanwhile, Jackie Gayda is home, thinking, "I'm lightyears ahead of these chicks -- why did I get such shit for my debut match?")

What if I said that I don't watch Girl NXT with the sound on?

Actually, I don't know if my speakers are just no good, but I had to watch that part over a few times to hear what you did. I heard McCool saying "C'mon y'all, let's go, let's go" right away but not "Right here" until I listened a few times.

I saw random confusion, but I've come to expect that from just about anyone on NXT.

See, Kaitlyn's spear was so mind-blowingly awesome that she not only broke her opponent, she broke the entire match!

It's unfortunate that Smackdown is taped prior to NXT (assuming that didn't change with the double tapings this week) because I'm pretty sure Kaitlyn's spear set off a ripple effect that would have carried over into Friday. Someone (Punk, maybe?) would have gotten phantomly floored by an aftershock from that spear.

Days later, and I'm still wondering why Goldust was wandering around backstage (before running into Aksana) but never actually sitting with the mentors. Was he looking for chairs for him and the Bellas?

Alternate thought: if the Bellas are so pointless to this bit that no one notices when they don't show up (in France? went home a day early?), why have them as mentors in the first place?

I know it's great WWE TV is entertaining in some fashion, but it'd be nicer if it was so good it was entertaining instead of this other way. Cole pointing out the bad show is bad is great and better than Cole pretending the bad show is actually good, but it'd be best if there wasn't stuff for Cole to make fun of. They could just try to put on a better television show, you know?

Because it happened on RAW in a different era and she made Trish Stratus look bad in the process.

Well, obviously. But that's not gonna happen. More trainwreck, please.
