  • The NXT Developmental Women Updates Thread



    CURRENT ROSTER as of JUNE 2013





    The FCW thread was getting a little irrelevant and all the posts going into it could add to the NXT thread so we have ourselves a new update thread for WWE's farm territory divas! Post all news, tapings spoilers, photos, videos, etc regarding the NXT girls in here. I'll try to update this first post as soon as any changes are made to the roster.


    First piece of news is the appearance of a new ring announcer called Kendra.

    Kendra's pretty. Looks a little like a blonde Maxine. And she also looks somewhat like a girl I went to high school and university with. I wonder if she's got any ring experience or if she's completely new to wrestling? No CageMatch profile so she may be new to wrestling.

    Great work on the thread. I've been thinking for a while that we needed a new one since there is no FCW anymore.

      Thread looks nice, however I can't get over how old Charlotte looks, seriously will someone please find out for me . Audrey, Paige, Sasha & Summer are who i'm hoping to take over the next generation of WWE

      Emma reminds me of Velvet Sky/ Kaitlyn

        She's only 26.

        She's one of those people who don't photograph well. But she's not that bad looking.

          Agreed, I've seen pics of her where she looks good. If you follow her on instagram, you'll find better pics of her.

          This new Kendra girl came from nowhere, similar to when Kaitlyn was signed. I wonder if she has an announcing background or if she attended one of the tryouts a while back. Any word on the recent tryouts from this past weekend? I didn't hear about any female talent trying out but I know the ones from last year were packed with female talent that weren't signed (Taylor something, Kasey Ray, Britney Savage, Brad Armstrong's daughter and a few other women). Still waiting on the arrival of Rachelle St. Clair, we waited on Emma for a while too so I'm still pretty sure she's under contract or that the offer still stands at least.

          Edit: Found the answer to my question about female talents at the tryouts and apparently there were none...over 30 guys according to JR but no women were invited. I guess since the last tryouts were so heavy with women, they didn't feel the need to bring any in for a look. There are still some out there that I was sure WWE would offer a contract to...the chick from the lingerie football league was one.

            Kendra looks more like a permanent ring announcer than a possible wrestler for some reason.

            Joey Mercury actually mentioned Rachelle in a tweet recently in response to a fan question. There was some type of auto-correct mistake in the tweet though, so it was hard to understand what he was saying, but it's possible he was trying to say her debut is postponed.

              ^ I was thinking the same thing LS. I'm sure she's just on ring announcing duties.

                Just checked that out...both Andre Tyson (the guy referenced by the fan) and Rachelle have great looks. Hopefully we see them report sooner rather than later. I wish she had a twitter or something.

                  Bill Demott recently tweeted that Sara Del Rey was doing marvellous work with the NXT divas.

                  Fuck, I'm excited!

                    4:05 - Summer Rae interview
                    9:54 - Paige and Sasha Banks backstage with Dusty Rhodes


                    Pretty good promo work from Summer and Paige! Looking forward to next week

                      I thought that was a really strong promo by Summer. She's a good talker, and also spoke really well on the leaked practice promos that came out a few days ago. It's nice that we're getting our first feud and first storyline on NXT now.

                        I agree...all that work in FCW as GM and ring announcing worked for her. She'll make an interesting heel with mic work alone (I like her catch phrase about summer school lol) and with Paige as her first feud I'm sure the matches will be cool as well. Glad we're getting something in NXT for the divas storyline wise.

                          3:00 for Paige/Summer ring segment, 6:23 for Paige backstage with the trainer, 15:00 for Paige backstage getting her shoulder taped, 17:45 for Paige vs. Summer, and Sasha & Dani backstage straight afterwards


                          I really liked all of this. We talked about it before how nice it was to see the divas getting a lot of focus - Paige rejecting those generic guys out of her ring was one of my favourite things in a while. The match itself was good too for what it was, Summer looked pretty impressive with her targeting of Paige's shoulder. She looks crisp and confident in the ring which is a good sign early in her ring career. The crowd reaction to her winning relatively quickly was great too - the fact that Paige is so over will help her get established as a heel, because they'll always be pissed whenever someone beats her.

                          Also we'll find out who Sasha's admirer is next week. I'm guessing since Dani gave her the letter this show, there's a decent chance it will be Anya as her introduction. I'd rather it just be a guy though, since WWE can't do gay/lesbian storylines maturely.

                            This storyline is going really well. Entertaining and intriguing stuff from both girls and it's being booked nicely. Just sucks that the good storylines don't happen on the main roster.

                            I do wonder about Summer's future though. She's turning 30 this year, which is really close to the time when WWE actually starts to get rid of divas. She definitely seems promising charisma-wise though, and her ring skills have been decent.

                            As for the Sasha/Dani segment, a few weeks I saw someone on another website suggest the admirer might be Anya (as HR pointed out), which could either be amusing or potentially bad. Guess we'll find out next week who it is. Sasha's speaking/acting in these segments definitely needs work because she comes across as generic, but she does have a nice voice and I could see her improving. Looking forward to Sasha vs Audrey next week.

                              On the other hand she could be another Layla who was already 29/30 when she won the diva search. I do think she has potential , in that house show tag match you posted while back she was actually already taking lucha moves which was impressive
