Previously on the Best and Worst of NXT: Women’s Champion Bayley defeated Alexa Bliss, and immediately got challenged by Total Divas star Eva Marie. The crowd couldn’t handle it in either direction. Also on the show, the new NXT Tag Team Champions Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder annihilated some local talent, Nia Jax destroyed Carmella and the best tag team in the world (Chad Gable and Jason Jordan) defeated The Ascension.
As a quick programming note, we’re playing catch-up on the reports this week. We missed this episode last week due to the Thanksgiving holiday, so we’re getting this up today, and the 12/2 edition early tomorrow morning. If you want, we can assume that the comments section is a place where people have seen both episodes, so discuss away.
Worst: Oh God No
The show opens with Michael Cole in the ring saying “may I have your attention please,” and there’s no quicker way to trigger acid flashbacks to the worst days of NXT than this. If you’re wondering what’d cause this kind of reaction, go back and read about any of the early NXT seasons.
This is all I can see:
The good news is that Cole’s just there to say his catchphrase and intro a contract signing that has nothing to do with him, but please, don’t scare me like that.
