The Results


  • Charlotte def. Emma via Pinfall

Emma seemed a little awkward in the ring for some reason. But then again, it’s Emma. Awkward should be expected. Her heel persona still feels a little off for her, but Bayley’s appeal as a face is helping her gain heel heat. We’ll just have to see how things play out with this feud.

  • Rhyno def. Bull Dempsey via Pinfall

I’m surprised the commentary team didn’t make a reference to the fact that a Rhyno took on a Bull. But I guess that’s a little too cheesy. JBL or Michael Cole definitely would not have let that bad joke slip by. But other than that, it was basically a squash match. At least Rhyno looked impressive during the match, which made his announcement that he wants to face Baron Corbin even better.

  • Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder versus Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady never starts.

The build up to Blake and Murphy versus Enzo and Cass has been fun to watch so far. This was just another push for the interesting feud.

  • Hideo Itami def. Tyler Breeze via Pinfall

Not as interesting as their previous work together, but a decent main event for the show. I’m not sure where the story is going next after Hideo accidentally kicked Finn, but it seems like set up for some interesting storytelling in the future.


This week’s episode of NXT was decent for the card it consisted of. Most of the really interesting moments were promos previously recorded outside of the ring and the Uhaa Nation video package. The in ring performances weren’t bad, it was just not as entertaining as it has been in recent weeks. But I’d gladly take a decent episode from a good show over an awful one any day. I can’t praise NXT every week, but I’m glad the show can usually put out great episodes on a consistent weekly basis.
