5 Ups And 5 Downs From WWE NXT 2.0 (Jan 18)


5. A Career-Best Display Mired By Nonsense

Ivy Nile

Without a shadow of a doubt, Ivy Nile sits as one of the finest additions to developmental that WWE have brought into the system in quite some time. Between her impressive physicality and all-round no-nonsense, athletic in-ring style, it's not hard to see why fans are already singing her name.

Of course, the Diamond Mine star still has an awful lot of room to grow before she's classed as someone capable of spear-heading this show or even the main roster product should WWE not catastrophically fumble her in the coming months. But her classy display against Kay Lee Ray last night only added more fuel to the growing fire that is her rise.

However, the writing was on the wall for this one from the get-go because there was no way a match between the clear next contender for Mandy Rose's title and 2.0's latest prodigy was going to end cleanly. So, why did we book this in the first place?!

As expected, an NXT Women's Champion's distraction led to a cheap Nile roll-up win, with that almost notable notch quickly forgotten about in favour of a bland brawl to set-up a six-woman bout between Toxic Attraction and KLR with Indi Hartwell and Persia Pirotta next week.

Not a single f*ck was given about anyone other than Nile throughout this, but yet she was the one who was quickly discarded once the dramatic angle was set into play.

*Dramatic sigh*
