Ric Flair Paige

Pre-show notes:

– She was 8 years old the last time he was heavyweight champion.

– Hello, new NXT audience! If you’re one of those “I watched NXT for the first time on the WWE Network and now I’m a fan” types, thank you for appreciating the coolest thing WWE does. If you wanna catch up, we do a weekly NXT recap (like the one you’re about to read) as well as a revisit of season 1, so check those out.

– Here’s a link to this week’s episode on Hulu (assuming they’ve worked out their weird posting schedule now) and a link to it on WWE Network proper.

– Follow us on Twitter @withleather, follow me personally @MrBrandonStroud and like us on Facebook.

– Share the column, please! If every person in Adam Rose’s entourage shared it, I could retire.
