    NXT Fake Rankings, 5/8/2021

    Men's singles division - babyfaces

    Finn Balor

    Kyle O'Reilly

    Bronson Reed

    Dexter Lumis

    Kushida (NXT cruiserweight champion)

    Leon Ruff

    August Grey

    Jake Atlas

    Men's singles division - heels

    Karrion Kross (NXT men's champion)

    Adam Cole

    Johnny Gargano (NXT North American champion)

    Santos Escobar

    Cameron Grimes

    Isaiah Scott

    LA Knight

    Oney Lorcan

    Ashante Adonis

    Unranked: Ari Sterling, Asher Hale, August Grey, Austin Theory, Ikemen Jiro

    WWE used to meticulously update the rosters on their website to reflect which people were called up to which brands, but at some point in the past year they let it slide. I'll try to keep track of wrestlers who appear regularly, but aren't listed on the site, by putting their names in italics.

    I've decided to stop listing the cruiserweight division separately. When you accept 205 Live as a filler show for job guy matches, it makes a lot more sense.

    With the NXT-AEW war out of the way, NXT can now refocus on its original (and contradictory) goals of grooming new stars for Raw/Smackdown while also building its own stars to become an equivalent to Raw/Smackdown. Balor, Cole, Gargano, and O'Reilly (along with Pete Dunne and Tommaso Ciampa) are a solid base to build around, and don't appear to be going anywhere. But I don't see that group really elevating a lot of guys outside of Kross, Reed, and Lumis, who are clearly going to end up being the next wave of big dudes on Raw and Smackdown.

    It's hard for me to imagine anybody else on this list becoming a big difference maker for NXT over the next two years. I certainly don't see anyone that will move to the "main roster" and get better treatment than Keith Lee or Ricochet. Maybe now that they're not in direct competition with Dynamite, NXT can work on building for the future instead of next week's rating. Or maybe the long-term damage has already been done. We'll see.

    Men's tag team division - babyfaces

    Tommaso Ciampa & Timothy Thatcher

    MSK - Nash Carter & Wes Lee (NXT men's tag team champions)

    Killian Dain & Drake Maverick

    Breezango - Tyler Breeze & Fandango

    Ever-Rise - Chase Parker & Matt Martel

    The Bollywood Boyz - Sunil Singh & Samir Singh

    Men's tag team division - heels

    Raul Mendoza & Joaquin Wilde

    Fabian Aichner & Marcel Barthel

    The Grizzled Young Veterans - Zack Gibson & James Drake

    Ariya Daivari & Tony Nese

    It feels to me like the Thatcher/Ciampa team is bound to split up, but that may just be because each guy made their name off of breaking up a beloved tag team. I also keep expecting the Dain-Maverick odd couple story to actually go somewhere, so what do I know?

    Aichner and Martel are officially listed on the NXT UK roster, but I think they happened to be in Orlando when the pandemic shut everything down and nobody ever bothered to acknowledge that they effectively switched brands. Ever-Rise, the Bollywood Boyz, and Daivari-Nese make up the core of 205 Live, endlessly wrestling each other and rarely making it onto the main NXT show.

    Women's singles division - babyfaces

    Sarray

    Dakota Kai

    Zoey Stark

    Women's singles division - heels

    Mercedes Martinez

    Toni Storm

    Unranked: Jessi Kamea, Zayda Ramier

    Women's tag team division - babyfaces

    Ember Moon & Shotzi Blackheart

    Women's tag team division - heels

    Candice LeRae & Indi Hartwell (NXT women's tag team champions)

    The NXT women's division is one of those things that sounds great until you actually look at the details and realize it's not all that it's cracked up to be. The current champion (Raquel Gonzalez) and the last champion (Io Shirai) haven't had a match in just over a month. The #1 heel (Martinez) is chasing the title and the #2 heel (Storm) is doing a losing streak angle with the rookies (Stark, Ramier) The tag division has exactly two teams in it. How is this deeper, or better, than anything Raw or Smackdown does with their women?

    It's all well and good to do a photo op with Rhea Ripley, Bianca Belair, and Raquel Gonzalez together representing the triumph of NXT. (By the way, I'm so proud that NXT's ladies finally took over from...*checks notes* NXT alumnae Asuka, Sasha Banks, and Io Shirai.) WWE and NXT have lots of talented women, but their impact is dulled when they are siloed into four brands, so that each woman wrestles the same 3-4 opponents all the time.

    To give women's wrestling its due, WWE/NXT needs to call up (at least) 20 more women for a proper expansion. The typical excuse here is that the women in developmental aren't ready, but that's bullshit because they've had years to work on this. At some point you have to admit that either the developmental system sucks or the company only recruits enough women to maintain a sideshow.

    No matches in 30 days: AJ Francis, Aliyah, Boa, Briana Brandy, Brian Kendrick, Franky Monet, Io Shirai, Jessamyn Duke, Kacy Catanzaro, Kayden Carter, Marina Shafir, Mei Ying, Pete Dunne, Raquel Gonzalez (NXT women's champion), Rinku, Saurav, Tyler Rust, Vanessa Borne, Velveteen Dream, Xia Li

    It feels like NXT had a lot of people on the bench throughout the Wednesday Night War. I don't know if you can chalk that up to stockpiling talent, or hotshotting storylines, or losing track of people, or what. For all I know many of these wrestlers have unreported injuries. For the sake of argument, though, let's just assume everyone here is able-bodied and ready to work.

    It's past time they fish or cut bait with Kendrick, Duke, Shafir, Rinku, Saurav, and Borne. Figure out what to do with them or let them be useful for someone else. I don't know of a good reason why you wouldn't have Gonzalez, Shirai, Aliyah, Shirai, Monet, Catanzaro, and Carter in the ring right now, when you need all the women you can get.

    Francis and Brandy just showed up as part of a new faction with Isaiah Scott and Ashante Adonis, so we'll see how they're doing in a few months. The Boa/Mei Ying/Xia Li faction never went anywhere, though, so even in NXT you can't count on having a storyline to keep you out of catering. Dunne is doing that stupid thing where a wrestler does weeks of promos about wanting opportunities instead of just winning a bunch of matches. Rust seems to have fallen off the face of the earth.

    As for Velveteen Dream...look, they clearly don't believe the allegations against Dream, but they're never going to convince the fandom to just let it drop. This isn't Jerry Lawler in 1993. It's very possible that Dream's career ended 11 months ago, and it's just a question of how long WWE wants to pay him to pretend it isn't.

    Inactive

    Arturo Ruas (right arm - biceps tear)

    Bobby Fish (arm - triceps laceration)

    Curt Stallion (wrist - fracture)

    Danny Burch (shoulder - separation)

    Kona Reeves (shoulder - labrum tear)

    Ridge Holland (left leg - ankle fracture, patellar tendon tear)

    Roderick Strong (storyline - "gave notice")

    Tegan Nox (leg - ACL tear)

    Information about NXT injuries is hard to come by, whether it's internal policy or because the wrestlers make fewer headlines. The only one here that I'm expecting to see soon is Strong, since his angle seems to be designed for him to pop up on Raw or Smackdown.

    15. Malta – Je Me Casse

    I have to admit that I didn't immediately make the Toy connection, but now I’ve seen other people make it, it's definitely a fair comparison. The similarities aren't a bad thing though, and it's very clear Je Me Casse is it's own thing. There is space for far more than one song about a woman standing up for herself against pushy guys. I like the electronic swing this song has going for it, Eurovision deserved better for Electro Velvet to be the only act to attempt that. Add in Destiny’s killer voice and performance abilities and on paper this is a great entry! Even knowing how good her voice is I still feel impressed every time I hear her perform, she’s probably one of the best vocalists Eurovision as a whole has seen, and I’m sure she’ll blow away the audience in Rotterdam.

    I do like this song a lot, but on a very personal level there’s never a moment where it really clicks with me and my like of it grows into love. I’m also aware that every time Destiny has performed live she’s sung the pre-chorus instead of chanting it like in the studio cut. Partly that’s due to her live versions all being different style interpretations of the song so the chanting wouldn’t work, but it does leave a question mark over that section for how it’ll work live for me – I don’t want another Montaigne situation! I’d probably prefer it though if she did sing through that section in Rotterdam, it’s my least favourite part of the studio cut.

    Overall, I like what this song is doing, I enjoy it when it's on, and I think it would be a very deserved top 5. But I don't fully connect with it, and I have other songs I much prefer.

    2020 vs 2021

    Je Me Casse, despite Toy comparisons, feels more unique and less generic than All of My Love, but I did like the gospel pop sound of All My Love a lot and it had a little more space to let Destiny shine. I feel pretty similarly about both for different reasons, both were in the solid 'like' category of my rankings. I think I prefer Je Me Casse for originality and managing to update swing for the 21st century and make it work.

    #eurovision#esc2021#2021 rankings #this is one of those times I wish I didn't know the odds #my write up of this was definitely impacted knowing it's the favourite #but it's pretty much impossible to avoid seeing them #especially if you want to keep up with everything else around Eurovision as I do #watching national finals hearing songs as they come out reading other people's opinions #it's all a big part of it for me and I'd hate to miss out on it

    Nothing like being Shipwrecked, eh lads? Okay so this initially shows up at the tail end of s1, but it’s also the first Look of s2.

    Notes: He starts out shirtless which is… Very Good. All those freckles under the sun, Jay likes. Then we have the brown shirt from the Careening outfit, but it’s been given some uhh modifications, if you will, in the form of a GIANT v ripped down the middle (for prime chest viewing.) 

    Also, Flint’s all bedraggled and torn up from the sea battle and almost drowning, sporting the wound in his shoulder where Dufresne shot him. (Someone has bandaged it… whomst? Prob Silver, that’s my head canon. He rescued him so, makes the most sense.)

    He looks like 1000 percent done in this outfit, so much rage, so much irritation, it’s DELICIOUS. The tight af pants, the big poofy ripped shirt, lightly covered in blood, his hair tousled all over the goddamn place, not to mention when he gets his calves out later? Yeah. It’s Working. 

    Ranking: Okay pack it up, go home, this is Flint’s peak hotness. 1,000,000,000/10 for stealing a Fucking Warship with one arm and just the thieving fake cook as backup (though who proves to be pretty great backup honestly). Best fucking Look.

    #my screencaps#black sails#toby stephens #jay's flint outfit rankings #black sails screencaps #james flint#captain flint#silverflint #it's a date lol #I would apologize for how long these rankings are taking but I'm working on so many other projects
