It needs some work. There are a lot of wrestlers in WWE at the moment and some of them are more experienced than others. Therefore, it makes sense to not put everyone on the same level of show, as some of them are not ready for that kind of a stage. Sometimes even then things can go badly, which seemed to be the case last week with a rookie’s match.
According to Wrestling Observer Radio, the match between Sarray and Lash Legend from last week’s 205 Live was “heavily edited” before being broadcast. The match was Legend’s second in her career and Sarray’s first match since her return to the United States following a return to Japan. The aired version lasted less than four minutes, though it is not clear how long the full match ran.
It was a different kind of match. Check out the match, plus the two of them in better situations:
Opinion: This is one of the risks of putting someone with virtually no experience on television. Yes the show was edited, but Legend doesn’t need to be in this kind of a match so soon. NXT would be smart to bring back their live event circuit, just for the sake of letting the wrestlers get any form of experience, but that does not seem to be an option at the moment.
How does this make NXT look? How can they fix the problem in the future? Let us know in the comments below.
