Maybe I'm late to this but Trevor Lee is now Cameron Grimes in NXT. Undecided on that name, maybe it will grow on me.
Alot of names changed:

Adrian Jaoude is now Arturo Ruas.

Luke Menzies has been renamed Ridge Holland.

Jessie Elaban will be known as Jessi Kamea.

Eric Bugenhagen’s new name will be Rik Bugez.

Karen Q is now Karen Yu. This will be tough news to break to a buddy of mine.

Bern and I make our return to Full Sail this Thursday for four weeks of NXT TV! These should be the four weeks leading up to Takeover: Toronto. Crazy to think they’re taping so far in advance but I’m excited!

Tell Trevor Lee that I heart him.

Good afternoon, lads. My brain is still hurting from that awesome Joey Janela show last night.

Something about Heel Io really makes me pitch a tent inside of my pants.

No thoughts on TakeOver? I thought it was a totally fine show but I was hoping for the next program to be set at the conclusion of the main event.

I thought it was a solid show but I think they've become too comfortable with the talent being featured and really need to move it along. This was the log jam I was worried about years ago where they'd hit this wall eventually.

Shayna/Dream/Undisputed Era and Gargano all gotta move on from NXT. But if this FS1 deal is happening, NXT is quickly gonna become something it never was and it won't be the same.

And the answer isn't to have guys like Breezango and Killian come back down.

Lee, KUSHIDA and Riddle should be holding it down right now. I hate them but same goes for Forgotten Sons. The tag division is weak as hell right now after gutting Viking Raiders and Heavy Machinery too early.

The womens division is sooo good at the moment and is being wasted. They have the talent.

Now is the time to take risks again and bring these people up from developmental to NXT TV.

The women’s division has been jammed since Dakota Kai got injured, as I assume she’s supposed the be the one to knock Baszler off.

I agree with a lot of what you said but this is the absolute truth.

I agree on Kai but in the meantime they had their shot with Bianca and even Cross before the call up. From there you could've used Lacey Evans and Candice LeRae for add on programs. The talent is there female wise. It just isn't being used in spite of Shayna AND Duke/Shafir (who have shown me nothing to this point)

I’m torn on this. While I agree that the last few takeover cards have felt a little stale, I don’t have a problem with the guys who are involved still being in NXT as top guys. It’s more like they should shuffle some of the other guys into the top. I see no reason Lee and Riddle shouldn’t be on the next Takeover. Especially if UA is in War Games.

KUSHIDA I’m just not sure is getting over. The response to him at the last tv taping I was at was lukewarm at best.

So NXT is moving to USA Network and Hunter is losing control of the brand to Vince. Sigh

I’m just happy the replay will be up on the network by the next night.

Yeah, no way am I watching NXT over AEW live. Though to be honest, I probably won't be able to see either live.

As long as I’m home, I’ll probably flip between the two. But AEW will likely get most of my attention knowing I can rewatch NXT the next night. Though if AEW then ends up on Hulu or something, I’ll likely rewatch that too. I don’t have DVR.

Same here, I cut the chord and watch most of my tv over streaming. I hope we get a Hulu replay for AEW, as that would be the best way to watch for me.
