Naomi---NXT Season 3
Naomi---NXT Season 3

I’m not exactly sure where I was going with this article, but here it is. Let me know what you think. Was it good, bad, or just plain boring? I want to know. So give your honest opinions and hopefully you enjoy it nonetheless.  


There is no doubt that we were all excited when the WWE first introduced the concept of NXT. They were finally going to create new stars and get ready for the future. Quite frankly, something they should have done a long time ago.

The first-ever NXT produced a powerful stable called the Nexus. They began to dominate Raw and the world of professional wrestling was electrifying again. It was a little bit different and gave us something new to look forward to.

Now wrestling fans are saying that the Nexus have overextended their stay. They have become stale and lack something exciting.

Now that CM Punk is involved with the Nexus we will have to see where they go with the story. Will they give us something to get excited about all over again? I don’t know.

The winner of Season 2 was a man named Kaval. Some know him as Low-Ki, but I know hardly anything about him before WWE. I know that he wrestled the independent circuits and was in TNA.

Also, that he held a title belt at one point, but that’s irrelevant to this article so moving on. He brought a whole different style to WWE than was the norm. Now he has been future endeavored as WWE fans like to say.

We will never know for sure if he was fired or if he asked for his release. The point is that he was the winner of Season 2 yet Alex Riley, another Season 2 star, has a bigger role in WWE than Kaval did.

What are we even voting for if the people we want to see aren’t worth anything in the company’s mind?

Season 3 was sort of a joke when compared to the last two seasons. WWE could have done so much with an All Divas NXT. Instead it ended up on the Internet of all places. Someone who couldn’t even wrestle ended up winning, but of course that’s nothing new with WWE, right?

As far as I can tell, Kaitlyn has only appeared on SmackDown once. For the record I was gunning for Naomi the whole time. And was I the only one that thought that AJ’s submission was impressive—something we don’t see in the Divas division a whole lot.

Now we are on to the fourth installment of NXT. I’ve only watched one airing of this season and it seems to me like they are still focusing on the silly challenges more than actual wrestling.

I mean I thought this was supposed to be about the next breakout star not "Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader?" Don’t get me wrong, it’s good to know your WWE history, but leave that stuff backstage.

However, are they rushing it? I say they started a little too late. To me it seems like the WWE are running around with their tail between their legs trying to make all of these stars entirely too fast.

When you are constantly creating new stars this fast, some are bound to be overlooked. They aren’t even using some of the stars that they already have on the roster properly.

I think WWE should have had NXT once or twice every year. Maybe have one in the fall and one in the spring. That way the stars of each season would have an ample amount of time to get over with the fans.

WWE could have really spent time investing in the one star until next season rolled around. Also, you would ultimately be giving the fans something to look forward to and truly give us time to wonder who the next biggest star was going to be.
