Honestly the most entertaining thing in all 3 seasons was the women's season and watching Cole (and eventually CM Punk too) rip the show apart. Their commentary was so damn douchey

You really didn't like season 1? It was different and entertaining. I'm still mad that they released Tarver. Season 2 was meh and Season 3 was hilarious. Season 4 was good for Bateman but anything after that was for the birds.

NXT Season 1 was the best. The cast of superstars the show had was bar none the best.

Plus the aftermath of NXT 1 with the Nexus was great.

With the first season I watched the whole thing because I never knew what to expect and like you said it was new. Season 2 had some good wrestlers/personalities (I'm actually a really big fan of Low-Ki/Kaval and WWE really dropped the ball with him..and I enjoyed Percy Watson and Alex Riley too) but it was too similar to season 1 so it dragged a lot at times

But like I said season 3 was even higher than Smackdown on my "must watch" list. I remember when Cole started keeping the big gong next to the announce table so he could gong the segments when they started boring him. It was just amazing

Overall I think if they just treated it like they do now, as a fully separate show with storylines and matches and just left it at that, it woulda been a lot better. All 3 seasons created some amazing unintentional comedy though. One of the best was Eli Cottonwood's "I don't have a mustache" speech (followed by Cole saying "um yes you do")..

OG NXT was awesome, even when it was horrible. Tarver was awesome. Nexus and the Invasion was awesome. Bryan spitting in then kicking Cena's face was just about the best thing ever.

Even when he looks old, Rey still looks about 10.

I'm surprised by that. Mainly because I forgot he existed.

Antonio Cesaro vs Sami Zayn Full: 2 Out Of 3 Falls Match

Great match and an incredible finish. LOL @ the youtube comment:
Vince: "What are Zayn and Cesaro doing?"
Everyone else: "It's called wrestling."

It's probably what Vince is really saying.

I saw that match the other day. I actually watched the whole show and it was good enough to make me get Hulu+ so i could watch NXT every week. There are a LOT of good young stars there. I liked that Bayley girl that they had AJ fight on that episode too.

I like her too, but she needs to stay on NXT for a while. Refine her character, because as it currently stands she's got a very obvious trajectory that won't last very long. I'd like to see her turn heel in a few months, because it'll definitely happen at some stage if she makes it to the main roster.
