SPOILER: Major heel turn took place in NXT

NXT held television tapings last night in Full Sail Arena and many things happened during the tapings.

The episode featured a steel cage match between Shayna Baszler and Io Shirai for the NXT Women’s Title. In the end, Baszler was successful in retaining her title against Shirai.

Following the match ending, Io Shirai beat down on Candice LeRae and she blamed Candice for her loss. Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that this was definitely a heel turn and a better candidate could not have been picked as LeRae is loved by fans everywhere.

So now Shirai is officially a heel and it will be interesting to see how WWE books her from here on out.

    I don’t watch NXT…so I don’t know who these people are. Sometimes I think to myself, “Self…do yourself a favor and watch NXT, because you’re probably missing out on some good WRESTLING” But then I remember that all GREAT talent from NXT become the new toy on WWE television, only to be discarded soon after. So I still don’t watch it, because it’s pointless to become a fan of someone that will not get the push they deserve. Instead I watch RAW and Smackdown, and get increasingly disappointed in the crap product being put out. It’s like a black hole I can’t get out of. Someone, please help me…
