Very unfortunate. I agree that they shouldn't vacate the title, but I think Asuka's title reign ran its course quite a while ago. So, she can drop the belt anytime and go to the main roster as far as I'm concerned. I really thought she was gonna drop it to Ember. All that said, I hope she recovers quickly, and through all that pain, she still put on a hell of a match.

Looking forward to Mae Young tournament too.

Lots of speculation about how long Asuka would hold the title, being that she's unbeaten and they're not really able to make her a heel yet. But if she vacates the title, is out for a while, and shows up on the main roster, how cool would that be? Mae Young will result in some new women coming into NXT so now might be the time to get Asuka up to Raw or Smackdown.

I hope they keep the title on Asuka as well, especially if she isn't out for too long. I'm not even sure if I want her to lose the title to someone else - Ember is great in the ring but her character (or lack thereof) and promos are hilariously bad. And the others just aren't on the same level. Either wait for Kairi's debut or let her show up on the main shows and have her win one of the Women's Titles, which would force her to vacate the NXT Title (like they did with Paige 3 years ago).

 

I'm scared on how they're gonna use her on the main shows though. Her streak would probably be broken on a random episode, just like it happened to Charlotte, Neville and Nakamura.

First round of the Mae You Classic was pretty enjoyable. A few competitors were definitely not on par with the talent levels of others. There were a couple dud matches too, similar to the Cruiserweight Classic. Overall, I've been enjoying it though. Tessa Blanchard vs. Kairi Sane was pretty great. Lita on commentary is awful though. She's probably the worst part. At least, good ol' JR is there.

Lita sucks, JR is doing fine and seems to have done his homework (or is getting solid intel in his headset) unlike when he called the US G1 Special.

Most of those first round matches were pretty lame, IMO. Expecting round two to be much better given some of the subpar competitors who have been weeded out.

Yeah, it hasn't been anything particularly mind-blowing so far. Kairi-Tessa, Piper-Santana and Gabert-Laith were the standouts and I enjoyed seeing Candice LeRae, Toni Storm and Shayna Baszler as well. I also expect it to get better though (although I have no hope for commentary, since Lita just isn't made for that and JR is way past his prime unfortunately).

 

Speaking of commentary, JBL is gone. Ideally, they'd call up Nigel but it's probably gonna be Otunga or King.
