[/quote]I've thought it was Balor who attacked him for awhile now, but I'm sure I'm wrong. It makes sense to me that Balor would take out one of the biggest threats to his spot, and now that he's had such a great run in Hideo's absence, it makes all the sense in the world. We're going to get evil Balor at some point, so it may as well be now. And putting the strap on Hideo at some point has to be in the cards right?.[/quote]

I was thinking Balor originally myself, that or Samoa Joe since he happened to debut on that night. Unfortunately I don't see them turning Balor heel anytime soon and certainly not before he makes it onto the main roster. I'm pretty sure they love him as a babyface business wise. He's a very attractive character to the casual fans with the whole demon shtick.

That being said, I'd pull the trigger on a Balor heel turn alongside Gallows and Anderson so he can feud with Itami and possibly TMDK if they're still coming in. Or if they have Joe win the title in Dallas, they could have him and Itami feud after all. So many possibilities but I think Hideo is due for a run with the NXT strap.

Balor/Neville was indeed awesome, definitely one to go out of your way to watch.

Dylan Miles made two rare Wrestling appearances at the Arnold last weekend:


Lost to Apollo Crews on day one and with Dan Matha (a recent signee) beat the Vaudevillians with the HEART PUNCH.

There was a public tryout at the Arnold. To me it is largely just for show as they didn't hire anyone from last year and the calibre of prospects used for the most part. WWE continues to tryout every Australian indie Wrestler. Biff Busick's old tag partner getting a tryout is interesting too. Apparently Ted Goodz's tryout tape had mostly tag Wrestling on it.

What I learned about nxt at the Arnold Classic:

The number one thing is that balor & bailey are the big stars…people came to meet them. They kind of cared about the other guys, but most people really wanted to meet Balor & Bailey there line around 2:00 was pretty massive around 500-600 people. The wait for cesaro & zayn’s line a few hours before wasn’t even close to balor & bailey’s line.

There was about 3x times as many people as there was last year. The short lines were about 50-100 people and they were guys who have not shown up on tv yet...Standing in line you get the idea that this was a hot product to its fans.

Talking to people in line I found out that the nxt audience is not really made up of “smart fans” it’s made up of wwe hardcore’s these people watch wwe and that’s it. Some watch tna a couple of them watch roh and very few mostly the guys in the bullet club shirts watch njpw, but not even then most had just seen a few match’s here and there on youtube. That’s it no one I met all day even knew what lucha underground was or any other promotion.

Well then as long as they stay healthy, that should bode well for Balor and Bayley once they're promoted.

Do they have a max of how many people can be there at once? And given how few people seem to be moving up/leaving, are they getting close to the max?

About a 100 maximum. Mike Quackenbush said he was told there was around 60 people there at the moment.

There's a "secret" tryout all next week. Believed to be Cruiserweight show related. They never stop recruiting.

Most successful corporations never stop trying to improve and are always recruiting.
Who's Rob Viper ?
