Pre-show notes:

– Share the column, please and thank you. If we get 10,000 readers and 14 shares, that’s a pretty off ratio, right? Let’s close that gap.

– This is the last time we’ll be watching NXT on Hulu, so if you’re into doing that, check out this week’s episode here.

– Next Thursday night is NXT OUR RIVAL (not its actual name), a live “pay-per-view” on the WWE Network. Should we have an open discussion thread for it? I’m sorta waiting for the WWE Network to launch and be a functional thing before I plan too thoroughly around it. If it fails and we end up watching the shows on Daily Motion I don’t want to have had my hopes up too high.

– If you’re new to NXT, you can check out previous weeks’ columns here. If you’d like to go back even farther, we’re doing a retro recap of NXT season 1 here. On the most recent episode (four years ago) Daniel Bryan recreated American Gladiator events on top of a giant air mattress. No, really.
