    HELL YEAH! Seth Rollins FTW! So, thats why people were congratulating him on twitter..

  • https://twitter.com/ninahfriend60 Chris E. Halladay

    Does DDP archive his shows? I’d enjoy listening to them!

  • XTX21

    Congrats to Seth! Just glad Mahal didn’t win… Surprised HHH was there and came to the ring that’s pretty cool.

      That house show at the Cow Palace in SF……….The year was 1967! It was put on by Roy Shires!

    • XTX21

      Geez why the hate? What did I say wrong?

    • felixrt

      Well, apparently HHH is behind the show’s recent revamping, so that could be why.

  • Kings of Wrestling

    CM Punk, Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, Kassius Ohno and Antonio Cesaro need to form a stable already.

    • pwnez

      I would also love to see Heyman as their manager.

      • LittleJimmyGotGot

        With Punk leading the group they wouldn’t need Paul Heyman. He comes off as a lil bitch anyways the way he points his fingers and talks like a 12 year old girl. His smile gives me the creeps to, gives off that hiding in the closet vibe

        • Reality

          Are you crazy? Heyman and Punk together = Best thing in WWE right now! It’s gold!
          I can’t imagine the shoots we may get with them!

        • Pozessed

          What have you been smoking? Heyman is one of the greatest on the mic and he has a great wrestling mind, if it weren’t for him then we wouldn’t have Brock Lesnar to the level we have him today. I reckon him and Punk would be epic on the mic.

        • mrchopper

          Lemme guess – you still think Hornswoggle can’t talk, right?

        • Kjhaltz

          That’s funny my gf was asking me does he really talk like that?

        • cenasucks

          haha, not a single like in 16 hours and 44 dislikes

  • https://twitter.com/ninahfriend60 Chris E. Halladay

    DDP and I have something else in common (besides wrestling)! We both are HUGE TREKKIES! \// LIVE LONG & PROSPER!

    • http://twitter.com/HEELHaro Franky Haro™

      speaking of DDP, he followed me on twitter yesterday & mentioned me over 5x

    • jrock

      Oh my dam!!! Your talking about wrestling, unrelevent wrestling but wrestling never the less. I’m so proud that you managed to rip yourself away from your tissues, lotion, and burger king menu!!!! To talk about some other than how shitty your life is. Dam some get this guy a cookie……..factory!!

        I know I already pulled this card in another comment I made a little while ago but if he done it with a broken freakin’ neck I’d give him a gold medal…xD

      • http://twitter.com/broski98 Aidan Grover

        he has nothing to do with his life


    and that belt looks better than the tag belts, the WWE Championship and the Divas title.

  • pwnez

    This could be the start of something great for Rollins. Glad he won the tournament though.

  • LittleJimmyGotGot

    How many of these former indy guys would be called to the main roster without a shoutout from CM Punk

    • felixrt

      Possibly all of them.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000177447796 Bubba Waterfield

        Possibly none of them.

        • felixrt

          Yep. We have no way of ever knowing.

          • felixrt

            Actually, to rephrase: we might get info regarding that in the future, but at the moment, us fans have no way of knowing.

    Congratulations to Seth! Big fan of his work…that belt is still ugly as all Hell to me, though. :P

  • http://www.facebook.com/jeremycounty Jeremy-County Roberts

    i thought this picture was cm punk in a wig for a second >.> they sorta look alike or is it just me? Anyway, congrats even tho not a damn soul watches NXT. If only they had Seth on NXT season 1. I’m pretty sure he’d be a main roster talent by now like Wade.

    • Spookusjoe

      NXT is the best WWE program right now. We still get it over here in the UK, It goes out on a Friday after SmackDown. It’s got something revolutionary and mindblowing called Wrestling! #RegalForSmackDownGM


    If Kevin Nash gets his wish with the new nWo and punk as their leader, I really hope they recruit some of these NXT guys rather than jinder mahballs….

  • omega riddler

    nice, it is a shame that belt is ugly as sin, who designs these belts

    • Cyber Criminal

      the belt that i wear over my pant is far better than that :P

  • kazuma

    at least it looks better than the WWE title

  • lou


  • Th3_Ev1l_n1nJa

    Can anyone please tell me how I can watch nxt?

  • rekhysalim

    Congratulations to Seth Rollins to become the first ever NXT Champion. The belt dont look though. And why is the gallery in the back completely vacant?

  • Beenwathcingsincemania3

    Is this WWE’s way of making a title to look look like the X Division championship in TNA? That is what it looks like to me. If WWE wants to kill the X Division, then they need to bring back the Cruiserweight Title for all the smaller guys to compete for. The U.S, title is now a joke. The diva division needs to be scrapped and make the Divas wrestler escorts or managers. The Tag team division in WWE is a waste, and the WHC and the WWE championship need to be unified once and for all and not be separated again. Two heavyweight titles are pointless. I really wish I could work for WWE or TNA as a head writer and take it back to the pinnacle of success it was in the 90’s and early 2000’s.
