Nikki Bella: ‘The Divas Title Shouldn’t Be Defended Every Week!’

Nikki Bella spoke with Chicago Now for a new interview. Check out the highlights:

On the Divas Revolution: “I think it has gone amazing. I think I have done a lot of great stories. It all started with me turning on my sister and that whole story with Stephanie McMahon. It wasn’t only a great story for the WWE but for woman in our industry. The story started with Daniel Bryan and it was so real and felt so captured by it. To be a part of the big turn at SummerSlam last year and have amazing promos with them was just great. I wasn’t happy on how they ended the story-line with my sister, but I won the Divas Championship and it has opened doors for many more great stories.”

On not defending the Divas Title every week: “Do I think my title should be defended every Monday Night like the U.S Championship is? Absolutely not. That’s not what this title is about. That’s what works for John’s championship but it’s not for me. Having my sister by my side and acting like two brats and telling others ‘You can’t touch us’ has started that NXT revolution. Look at what the reign has done and it keeps giving more and more to the WWE Universe. I am so proud to be a part of this experience and ultimately honored.”

A Live Fan Report From Last Night’s NXT Takeover: Brooklyn Event

Credit: Randy Sobel & Prowrestling.net

Enzo and Cass were hugely over with the crowd. Waiting on line to go into the arena, you got the typical smark chants – Cena sucks, Yes! Yes! Yes!, New Day Rocks, yada yada. The most prominent chant of the night by far was “How You Doin?” So good. I will say that I think Enzo and Cass in their opener (of the television taping) seemed a little shocked and humbled, which was probably the most exciting moment of their careers. We definitely saw a relative of one of theirs, probably a grandmother who was escorted to the front row before the match and helped to the back right after. She was wearing a “How You Doin?” shirt. Lots of MVPs tonight. She’s one of them.

The crowd hated the Hype Bros and loved Gable.

Not a surprise, but the crowd hated Eva Marie. She was protected heavily in this match. She only got in a couple of hip tosses, chin locks and her finisher. The crowd liked, but not loved Carmella. Staten Island got a mixed reaction because, well, no one likes Staten Island.

I went and got a drink during most of Sampson/Dempsey. Sampson was billed as The Drifter. Not sure if this was new for him, but he channeled his inner Jeff Jarrett carrying an acoustic guitar to the ring. He definitely belonged in Brooklyn. Dempsey got a nice reaction and I believe this is his first appearance as Bull Fit. Same music though, and same awesome profanity laced chants involved.

The fatal four way was strange. The finish seemed botched for whenever reason and even Emma looked surprised that she won. Dana and Emma sort of turned on each other at some point too and it wasn’t convincing at all. Charlotte and Becky were definitely held back so that they can go all out tonight. I can easily say this was the worst match of the night. Sign of the night: Dana Brooke is Literally The Worst. Give that man a hand.

Okay, file this under the this seriously happened category. HHH came out before the taping. It was a time killer 15 minutes before air and an ego stroke. He told the crowd, a Brooklyn crowd mind you, that they were taping the opening and shutting all of the lights off and he needed everyone to be dead quiet when he spoke until they turned the lights on. No one listened. It was a really dumb idea in theory and in execution. Whatever, he cares and that’s what matters ultimately.

I saw Jushin “Thunder” Liger wrestle live. Seriously. I wrote that sentence and it actually happened. I will say I expected a little more from them, but Liger is 50 and Breeze isn’t a top star on the roster, so for what it was it was fine. One of my favorite chants of the night, and there were many, was Liger’s Gorgeous! No He’s Not! I’d care to say that the crowd was way more into Breeze though, and some jerk behind me kept yelling that he didn’t like Liger’s kind. I won’t make mention of him again, but think of any racist, homophobic, sexist slur and he probably shared his opinion about it.

The tag match was fun and the outcome was surprising. Outside of Bayley, Enzo and Cass, Blue Pants was easily one of the best pops of the night. The Blue Pants City chants were hysterical. As were Blue! Pants Rocks! I don’t know how well it came off streaming because of the lighting, but her tron video is just a slightly shaking pair of blue pants. She’s so over its ridiculous. I think they need to feud her with Eva Marie soon, it’s inevitable.

The crowd was really into Dillinger’s perfect ten gimmick. Lots of 10 signs in the crowd. He was more over than Crews at first, but when Crews mocked him the crowd ate it up. Both guys really impressed me. I’m not sold on Crews’ personality yet especially because we have yet to see him with a mic, but I have high hopes that he’ll be successful at least in NXT for now.

Baron Corbin vs Samoa Joe was fine. Joe did look gassed at a point though, so I wonder if that’s a concern moving forward. He doesn’t look any lighter than he did when he started. The crowd was pretty anti-Corbin and pro-Joe, but I think they were holding something back because the anticipation for Bayley vs. Sasha Banks was on their minds.

I haven’t been to as many big wrestling events as I should of been to in my lifetime, so I’m grading on a curve here, but Bayley vs. Sasha is in the top two of live matches I’ve seen. The other being C.M. Punk vs. Undertaker at WrestleMania. This should have been the main event. The crowd buzz was electric and I think when the Lets Go Bayley/Sasha chants erupted, everyone just chanted the entire thing. The reverse huracanrana had me in complete shock and it was one of the best spots I’ve ever witnessed. The whole match was beautiful, they told their story the right way and had to crowd buying into it the entire time. Was it the best WWE woman’s match of all time? Do you know of a better one? If so, I’d like to see it. It’s definitely the best of the NXT bunch. The four Horsewomen being in the ring was a cool moment, albeit the most diverse collection of hair colors ever seen together in one wrestling ring.

I’m not sure if this got on TV, but before the Kevin Owens vs. Finn Bálor match (I won’t say main event because it shouldn’t have been) there were a bunch of guys trying to throw streamers into the ring like they did in Japan. Security initially kicked them out for it. The crowd was chanting “let them stay” and then five minutes later security brought them back. The crowd chanted “welcome back.” It might have been confusing to most on the live stream. It seemed to me that the crowd was just emotionally drained after Bayley vs. Sasha and they went a little ADD for most of the match by starting Olé chants and all that. Owens was in strange form, my friend said his attitude was like he was wrestling on a house show.

There were a couple of goofy moments here and there, which I love, but I’m not sure how crazy the brass is about it. Good match, though. Bálor’s dive off the table was sensational. The only spot where I think could of been better was Owens should of apron bombed him onto a ladder, but that’s just spot monkey stuff that doesn’t effect match quality. They told a good story and if this is Owens’ NXT swan song, he had a great nine-month run for sure. Bálor’s entrance live is really cool, but I think leaves something to be a little desired as opposed to on TV where where the camera movements make a huge difference. It won’t hurt his stock at all, but I guess I was expecting more of an arena rock feel to it when it was just some smoke and face paint and red lights.

I was sitting in a decent spot on the first riser to the floor facing straight toward the entrance. Everyone they showed throughout the night sitting in the front row were planted there, in the same exact spot, and left immediately after their on camera appearance. I suppose they do this often? Maybe not since it was Ric Flair and Sgt. Slaughter and guys of that ilk who’d rather be watching backstage. Rick Rubin, the supposed huge wrestling fan, left midway through the Bayley match.

They only person I saw there for a good portion of it was Seth Rollins, although I never saw him get up to leave.

The Tough Enough people watched the entire taping they did before Takeover started from a few sections away from me. People were yelling in ZZ’s face, telling him to get eliminated. Not much else with that, though. Amanda looks really hot in person, hotter than on TV even, so I guess I don’t blame Miz anymore.

Vince Russo Blogs On Tonight’s Lesnar vs. Undertaker Match

Vince Russo has posted a new blog entry talking about Brock Lesnar vs. The Undertaker at WWE SummerSlam tonight. An excerpt is below:

It’s hard to believe that it was twenty-five years ago when I first saw the Undertaker work for the WWE at the 1990 Survivor Series. If you’re as old as I am, and have the history to reach as far back as I can, you would be able to say that on that night you just knew that there was something special about this now iconic character. And, that’s exactly what he was—a character. There wasn’t ever another like him before . . . or. since.

With every plotted move, Mark made you believe that you were indeed watching a “Dean Man”. From the no-selling of his opponents arsenal, to the chilling “sit-up”, all the way to the thunderous “tombstone”—you believed everything that Mark Callaway was portraying in the ring—just a lost art in the business today.

I can’t tell you how blessed I was to have worked with Mark. Even though we were never close pals by any means, we didn’t have to be for me to truly understand and appreciate the man that he was. Mark was just one of those guys that you would label a pro’s pro. He didn’t say much, but his silence carried a deafening statement. He was far, and away the locker room leader when I was working with him, something that just doesn’t carry the same weight today that it did back then. And, ever though I was working in a locker room full of testosterone he-men—everybody feared “Taker” . . . everybody!

The one thing I’ll never forget about Mark, was him sprawled out in the locker room in intense pain after almost every match. Back then, the Dead Man had severe back issues that he would never sell before stepping in the ring. I know that there was an occasion, or two, where Taker would later tell a friend of mine that there was a bit of heat towards me on his part because at times I asked Taker to work hurt. That opinion he has of me tears me to the bone, why—because I never KNEW he was hurt. He would no-sell to me, and everybody else and proceeded to go out there and tear the house down. Man, we are talking about a prideful man here—he stood taller than perhaps anyone else I had, or have, ever met.
