-Ross on The Shield: "The Shield brought some great energy to the proceedings of which the fans responded to and which got us off to a great start for the night. @TheDeanAmbrose, @WWERollins and @RomanReigns are hungry and motivated. They all fully realize that they are at the right place at the right time and opportunities such as they have been facilitated don't come along often. I still believe that if they continue to up their aggression and deliver at 'game time' that these three will make a huge impact in WWE as time goes on."
Powell's POV: I'm looking forward to seeing how their match goes at the TLC pay-per-view. It will be interesting to see whose ring work stands out, who does the bulk of the selling for the team, whether the go over or lose in a way that protects them, etc.
-Ross on Big E Langston: "Big E Langston had a huge night as the powerhouse has something, likely 'it,' that connects with the audience at least the audience @FullSail. E has a legit 575 pound bench press and was a former Florida high school amateur wrestling champion while going to Iowa to play defensive tackle for the Hawkeyes before an injury derailed his gridiron career. I've been a supporter of Big E's for quite some time and feel that if he keeps evolving, working tirelessly to improve all phases of his game and avoids self destructive incidents that he's another NXT talent who is main roster bound. When? That's anyone's guess. Look in the mirror, Big E because there's the answer."
Powell's POV: Langston challenged Seth Rollins for the NXT Championship at the taping. Rollins has shown that carrying the strap doesn't disqualify someone from being called up to the active roster.
-Ross on the release of Kenneth Cameron: "Kenneth Cameron being released was unfortunate but one reaps what one sows and I hope that he's able to still live his dream at some point. Cameron had a great opportunity to make his mark in WWE with Ascension along with Conor O'Brien. O'Brien was in a single's bout at NXT and was very solid Thursday night."
Powell's POV: Cameron (a/k/a Thomas Latimer) was arrested on November 22 and charged with disorderly intoxication and battery on a law enforcement officer. Given the charges, it's no surprise that WWE opted to sever ties at least for now.
Other topics include the Wyatt Family, developmental Divas, Shawn Michaels, Antonio Cesaro, a WWE tryout camp, and much more on the WWE NXT tapings.
