WWE NXT Post Brand Split Infiltrated by Impact Zone

WWE NXT, following the WWE Brand Split, has been infiltrated by the Impact Zone. But, I have to expose the WWE Universe and their TNA Double Standard. 

WWE NXT Post Brand Split

I guess for the loyal Orlando wrestling fans they probably don’t mind traveling 30 minutes south down I-4 to see some familiar faces in a new territory.  Guess the same applies to WWE NXT when they chose to bring aboard a trio of former TNA world champions.

I do not dispute or disagree with the move whatsoever. What I do have an issue with is how WWE fans and the WWE in general and their constant and incessant trashing of TNA.

WWE has brought in Samoa Joe and made him their current champion. Austin Aries followed by Bobby Roode made their debuts this year in NXT following the recent TNA talent exodus.

aries and roode

Now, it is one thing to have these TNA all stars come aboard to re-establish and help enhance the WWE’s prized developmental talent, but the talent they could have worked with was quickly called up thanks to the brand split.

So incredible that WWE does not recognize TNA, yet they basically use Joe, Aries and Roode as the self same characters they played in TNA…down to their monikers.  The IWC and the NXT Universe would normally look down on these wrestlers for the company where they honed their craft and made their name, but they completely forget about that stigma just because they are now signed with WWE.

Tell me if I’m wrong, but I just find that hypocritical. Nevertheless, Joe, Aries and Roode deserve to be in NXT and they are totally worthy of a spot on the main roster. But, the fact that there have no significant stories or additional layers to their individual characters, they would called up only to be made inferior if they did. Just watch AJ Styles after his feud with John Cena and see if WWE will eventually bury him. -KOP

WWE Brand Split Changes Only Cosmetic…Not Creative

WWE Brand Split Changes are so far only Cosmetic. Nothing on the creative end has yet to change and ratings have started to drop and rosters are exposed.

KOP breaks down how though the changes do not affect Summerslam, but the changes will hurt after the event. He also explains how lazy the creative has been citing the weak Finn Balor demon history, Anderson/Gallows ringpostitis and the lame Rusev/Reigns wedding celebration.
