They aren’t done yet. Television has long since been the life blood of most wrestling promotions and it makes perfect sense. Fans are able to watch wrestling at a given time because they know when and where the show will be airing. That is at least in theory, as sometimes there is a little bit more to be seen, as was the case this week, with a special bonus taking place after a broadcast.
The main event of this week’s NXT saw Bron Breakker successfully defend the NXT Title against Joe Gacy. After the match, two of Gacy’s minions appeared behind Breakker to end the show. WWE has posted a clip from after NXT went off the air, showing the minions attacking Breakker, at Gacy’s instructions. They then put Breakker on a stretcher with barbed wire attached and carried him to the back.
This was certainly different. Check out what happened after NXT:
Opinion: Your taste on the angle may vary, but there is one major problem with the whole thing: Breakker pinned Gacy clean to end the show, so why should I want to see the story continue? Breakker is the better man and the feud is just going to continue, making the title match feel all the less important. Maybe it winds up being an improvement, but this isn’t exactly the most logical next step.
What do you think of the angle? Where do you see the feud going from here? Let us know in the comments below.
