The NXT Wrestling Fan

Aug 7, 2021

The 53rd installment of our educational wrestling journey has taken us to the episode of NXT that originally aired on May 22nd, 2014, which means we have officially covered our first full year of wrestling! This is also the closest thing we have to a 2nd anniversary episode, and we're celebrating with the very first Takeover go-home show! Or rather...the BO-home show! Our coverage includes:

  • The NXT universe bids farewell to Bo Dallas, who, as a reminder, is the greatest
  • Tamina Snuka is probably very good at many things (but wrestling is not one of them)
  • We demand that Camacho removes his shirt this instant
  • Sasha Banks takes yet another step toward achieving her final form
  • The fickle relationship between babyface champions and wrestling crowds
  • Tyson Kidd wants you to know that he knows how to say the word "fact"
  • The Figure Four, explained
  • MeganBob's view goes askew

Our theme song is called "Learnbuckle" and it was created by the uniquely talented Rafael Medina, whose work you can and should follow via his Twitter account, @EarthMeauxFaux! You can also follow Miles @mjschneiderman, MeganBob @meganbobness, and the show itself @nxtwrestlingfan. And if you'd like to support the show, check out our Patreon at
