There was some more to go. NXT has been thrust into the WWE spotlight over the last few months with the show being part of the upcoming Survivor Series. This has seen NXT being turned into a top level third brand with several of its wrestlers picking up wins over the main roster talent. The invasion is on in full but this week saw Monday Night Raw and SmackDown head to NXT’s home base of Full Sail University. There was a lot going on and some of it didn’t even make air.
WWE has posted a pair of videos showing extra footage from NXT that did not make air this week. First was a video from the middle of the show, after the Revival had been defeated by the Undisputed Era. Following their loss, the Revival headed to the back as the fans begged them not to go. This comes as the Revival is rumored to be considering leaving WWE when their contracts expire in the near future.
They love these guys. Check out the fans’ reaction to the Revival:
This week’s NXT ended with former NXT Champions Seth Rollins and Tommaso Ciampa getting into a fight after the main event. Several people from all three rosters were involved in a melee at ringside, leaving the two of them to slug it out in the ring. WWE has released a video showing the two of them brawling even more before separating and taking out some other wrestlers to end the show.
I could go for more of this. Check out the big brawl to end the show:
Opinion: This is the kind of stuff I could go for more of as both videos show the emotion that comes from NXT. The fans there love the Revival and if you’re over there once, you’re family for life. The same thing was true for Rollins, who has not wrestled in NXT in several years but was still treated with respect. It’s a cool thing to see and something you just do not get on the main roster most of the time.
