Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady kick off the show with a promo as they come to the ring. They are taking on Alexander Rusev and Sylvester Lefort. Lefort is the most interesting one of the four, as none of the others intrigue me in the slightest. Rusev is a beast, but we've seen his type too many times before. Rusev and Lefort pick up the win in this snoozefest. We see a blond diva at the top of the ramp watching them. She doesn't impress me either.
We get a Raw recap. On NXT. Yup.
Aiden English(now dubbed the Ar-tist) sings as he comes to the ring. It's sketchy. William Regal says he has a mancrush on him and Renee Young loves it.
English takes on Jason Jordan. He defeats him in a short match using the director's cut. English gives us an encore after the match and sings no one in the WWE is better than he. I suppose a fresh repackage for English is nice, but that singing just doesn't belong. Roses are tossed in the ring after he sings. The match was nothing special, but I'm curious about English's future.
Adrian Neville is shown in a wwe.com exclusive with a message for Corey Graves. Can't wait to see those two wrestle again!
Paige takes on Summer Rae. Sasha Banks is in the corner of Summer Rae. Paige wins in just under seven minutes, and Banks attacks her after the match. Emma makes the save and beats on Banks. Paige goes to stop Emma but Emma knocks her to the mat by "accident" as we assume she thought Paige was Summer Rae. They appear to be getting along after the fact. Great women's wrestling match, and how can anyone not be excited for Paige making her way to the WWE main roster?
Tyler Breeze is briefly interviewed about his match with CJ Parker tonight.
A Curtis Axel promo video is shown. This must've been filmed awhile ago. A Big E. Langston promo video is shown following Axel's.
Next we get a video of Luke Harper cutting a promo on Kassius Ohno. Apparently they have a match taking place next week. We are then told that Alexander Rusev will be taking on HIS manager, Sylvester Lefort next week.
Tyler Breeze takes on CJ Parker. Very aggressive back and forth action from both men. Together, these two have a lot of hair. Damn. Parker wins the match with a straight shot to the face. Excellent main event to close out the show! Parker tries to cut Breeze's hair after the match but Breeze escapes.
Fantastic show overall. I may not love some of the over the top gimmicks in NXT, but the wrestling delivered from start to finish with quality commentary. Thanks for reading!
