If the Dolph Ziggler experiment seems to have worked for key ratings and fan/WWE Universe reception, the similar process done by Natalya does not seem to be headed in the same way, at least in terms of ratings. Last week the show aired on USA Network and obtained 610,000 views, which testifies to an excellent figure for a weekly event that has completely changed and without the presence of a high "caliber" of names within its roster.
It was also the episode in which Natalya first showed up carrying out attacks and launching new challenges that saw their light right through last night with a new NXT 2.0 appointment. The most avid readers of our site will surely have recovered the report of the show curated by Alberto Quaglio and available through the following link and equally certainly know the outcome of Natalya's meeting, that is with the victory of the Canadian over the young Tatum Paxley.
A match that, however, does not seem to have brought with it a large following, as indeed most of the card in which, if you put aside the various segments between Bron Breakker and Joe Gacy and the debut of Roxanne, there was very little really unmissable.
NXT is down
NXT Tag Team Champions Pretty Deadly kicked off the episode before we saw Bron Breakker show up in the parking lot. In the ring, the new tag champions celebrated their win but were interrupted by The Grizzled Young Veterans.
The episode of this Tuesday, therefore, obtained 568,000 plays, a figure therefore in decline, but generally stable on the figures that NXT 2.0 has accustomed us to in recent months. Toxic Attraction are certainly a primary safety of the show, Bron Breakker has convinced many and he just has to keep improving in his path, the various backstage segments of Hartwell, as well as other young people like Nikkita, are the right weapon with which being able to build solid foundations for the future and then the presence of elements coming from the main roster is still a not-insignificant help, especially if they then "go down" to do important things as already done by Dolph Ziggler.
