Superstars Missing from NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool Card


— Killer Kelly: According to my notes, Killer Kelly has only won two dark matches and nothing else in NXT UK. Therefore, there’s no reason why she would be on this card with that kind of record.

— Millie McKenzie: Strangely, McKenzie wasn’t used at all during the last two tapings. Not even in a dark match. She did appear twice before that on the August tapings and once in a dark match in July, and even won one of those three matches, but strangely, nothing since then. Scheduling? A lack of focus and need for her? Who knows…

— Nina Samuels: Nina was only present for a dark match in the more recent set of tapings, but was used a handful of times during the previous recordings, including a loss to Dakota Kai in the tournament quarterfinals. It’s a small pool of talent that don’t have much time to play around with and Samuels just isn’t the focal point right now, it seems.

— Xia Brookside: She’s young, but WWE definitely must see something in Xia Brookside, as she’s been used at every set of tapings since the first NXT UK round in July and was in the Mae Young Classic. She lost in the tournament quaterfinals and elsewhere, but she’s picked up a few wins, too.

Do you think these men and women or any others not on this list should have been booked on the card in some fashion? How would you have utilized them if given the opportunity? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
