I think that the era we are in NXT right now might very well be the best so I was thinking about NXT over the past few years and how each era stacks up. Here is my best attempt to divide the era's. 1)Early days - From Rollins to Bo this was before the takeovers and really before the network. I didn't follow it much and at the time NXT was just starting to take shape. Some of this era took place before full sail. From what I have heard there was some good stuff like Ambrose vs Foley and Regal. You also had Rollins/Reigns/3MB/Big E. Its hard to judge since it was so different. 2)Nevill/Zayn/KO era - NXT was taking the from of the NXT we know today. Takeovers and the weekly network show were just starting. NXT was more developmental but we were starting to see the indy guys coming in, but under new names. This was also the begining of the womens revolution. NXT started to blow up at this time. 3)Finn/Joe/Nak era - the indy guys takeover. We saw the switch of indy guys getting new names to keeping their charachters. Itami and Finn debut during this time and kicked off the buying spree. The womens revolution kicked into high gear and so did NXT's tag team division. This is when we started to see the american alpha's, revivials, AOP's, Enzo/Cass start to make their name after the horrid ascension era. Now I have a bit of hard time classifying another era so my next description might be off. 4)Roode/Almas era - kinda a down period after NXT got raided by the main roster. A bit of TNA invasion too LOL. NXT was still accumulating talent. I would say we could add tournaments to this era because the CWC and MYC began here. 5)Black/Ciampa/Present era - brings us to today. I could push this era back to the Ciampa turn but its easier to go by champs. This has been a Renaissance for NXT. More top indy talent coming in (UE/BSS/Richochet/Lee/Rush(205 live) etc...) The storylines have been great and the ring work may have never been better. I think right now we are in the best era. Dream and Ciampa/Gargano have been great feuds (whoever dream feuds with is great). Matches have been amazing. UE and BSS are great and Richochet is awesome as well. I am a fan of Shayna and the womens division is probably the best its been since the 4 horsewomen era. Which brings me to my second favourite era, the Finn/Nak/Joe era. Great main events where the champ felt like an actual big star. NXT also went international with having its first title change in Japan (making it a real world title) and then an NXT takeover in London. I think many people were disapointed with some of the main events but the big fight feel of them made up for the 1 or 1.5 stars less the matches might of produced. So whats your favourite era? rank them if you want.
