It’s just about time for the latest 2 hour special from NXT and we can’t friggin’ wait! NXT:TAKEOVER RIVAL will be airing this Wednesday night on the WWE Network and we give a full rundown of the card on the latest episode of developmental talent– plus our predictions for some very unpredictable matches!

Also, it turns out that Hogie (the resident wrestling historian for Developmental Talent) was deathly afraid of Goldust while growing up. Ridicule him in the comments!

This week’s segments include:
-The Figure Five
-This Week In Wrestling History
-Pre-Per-View (NXT Takeover Rival)

Give it a listen up above on the FreakSugar pop-up player, or you can hit up the direct link HERE for those using iOS.

Previous Developmental Talent episode links can be found HERE.
