WWE NXT |7-10-14| The Summer of Summer!

Hello my friends and welcome to my review of July Tenth’s edition on NXT! Tonight our advertised main event is Tyson Kidd & Justin Gabriel taking on Sami Zayn & Justin Gabriel! Also tonight Bayley battles Summer Rae over the #1 Contendership for the NXT Womens Championship!

Bayley vs. Summer Rae

Starting off the night with the number one contenders match for the NXT Womens title, out first is Bayley to a nice reaction and then out comes Summer Rae! Bayley takes early control in the match when she sides steps Summer early on, and began to beat down in the turnbuckle. Bayley would not let up on Summer at all hitting some impressive maneuvers like her signature belly to bellies and of course showing more of her new aggressive side! The commentators spoke about how huge Bayley’s upset victory over our NXT Womens Champion was! Summer eventually left the ring to the outside, but Bayley soon followed. This would lead to Bayley’s demise, as Summer rolled back in the ring and as Bayley was about to, Rae landed a striking kick to her opponent shoulder. Summer Rae began her dominance over the match up, grounding Bayley with many strikes and submission moves. Bayley tried to fight back, but Summer always managed to keep her down until she bounced Bayley off the ropes and when for a spinning heel kick, until Bayley got her leg and swung the leg forward, forcing Summer to fall face first into the mat. Bayley began to get back into the match up catching Summer off guard with many clotheslines and eventually went for the Belly to Bayley, but Summer countered into The Summer Dream to pick up the victory!

Winner & #1 Contender for the NXT Womens Title – Summer Rae

Grade – B, A great match to start off the night! If these two were given more time, I bet the grade would be higher. Its matches like this that makes me wonder why WWE doesn’t let Summer Rae run with this character. Bayley has been gaining quite a following as of late and I feel she was the star of the match. As always she played with the crowd, if the chanted “One More Time!” She gladly provided it! And she even earned herself a “Bayley’s Gonna Hug You!” Chant. It’s just a matter of time for Bayley, but for now the NXT Womens Champion, Charlotte’s attention is all focused on her former ally, as it seems like we are going to get that BFF feud. I still hope Sasha gets added somehow making it a Triple Threat! Or maybe that can happen further down the line!

Sami Zayn/Adrian Neville (c) segment & Tyson Kidd/Justin Gabriel Interview

I’ve decided to batch these two segments together since they are the same rivalry and they happened right after each other. The commentator brush up on what happened last week before showing us a video from last week of Sami Zayn and The NXT Champ, Adrian Neville backstage after what happened. Neville checked on Zayn and shouted how cheap the attack was. Zayn talks about how he blames himself (nothing new) for Kidd attacking him, saying he should have expected it! Zayn than goes on to state he was more surprised how easy Justin Gabriel is to brainwash and guarantees Kidd and Gabriel that they have not seen the last of him and Neville! Than we are immediately backstage after the video ends, where Devin Taylor is backstage ready to interview both Tyson Kidd and Justin Gabriel! Devin talks to Justin about his shocking turn last week. Justin talks about how he was on NXT 4 years ago and now 4 years later he finds himself back here. He says Tyson was right all along and all it took was one more loss for him to realize. Gabriel ends his part of the interview by saying “to be successful, sometimes you need to break a few rules.” Before Devin could interview Tyson Kidd, Kidd walked off. It was than announced that later tonight Tyson Kidd & Justin Gabriel will face off against Sami Zayn and the NXT Champion, Adrian Neville!

Sin Cara vs. Wesley Blake

Before this match take place, it was announced that the #1 Contender for the NXT Title & Award Winning Music Artist – Tyler Breeze has entered the building. Sin Cara’s music plays and the masked superstar made his way to the ring. The commentators talks about how Sin Cara is looking to reestablish himself, and what better place to do it than NXT! Already in the ring is his opponent tonight, Wesley Blake, one of NXT’s resident enhancement talents! Sin Cara and Blake chain wrestle for a bit in the beginning, but it was not long before Sin Cara took control off the match. He used his lucha background catching Blake off guard with many roll ups and even an impressive dive to the outside of the ring! Blake was not without his moments! While in the turnbuckle he landed an huge right hand to Sin Cara and then continued to beat down on the masked superstar. Blake targeted the arm of Sin Cara, as he locked in an arm lock and kept it locked in for quite a while until Sin Cara got back to his feet and rolled out of the move. Cara began to get back into the match, ducking clotheslines from Blake while landing his own high flying moves; eventually Blake found himself perfectly for Sin Cara’s High Angle Flip, as The Masked Superstar landed the flip and covered Wesley Blake for the win!

Winner – Sin Cara

Grade – B-, So it would appear that Sin Cara is following in the footsteps of Tyson Kidd and Justin Gabriel, as he is now looking to make his mark on NXT! Tonight’s match wasn’t too bad. It accomplished its goal and they managed to put on a pretty entertaining match. It wasn’t great, but it wasn’t bad either. I’m not sure if Sin Cara will challenge Neville for the NXT Title, but I think what’s best for him is to form a team with fellow masked superstar, Kalisto! And join the expanding NXT Tag Division!

Tyson Kidd & Natalya Segment

Kidd is in the back getting ready for his match, when his wife Natalya approaches him. The couple talks about Kidd’s interview with Renee Young last week. Nattie brought up the fact that she felt Tyson was blaming her for his loss to Neville. Tyson apologized to Nattie and then Natalya expresses how she doesn’t like how Kidd has been acting lately. Tyson tells her that this is the start of the new Tyson Kidd and he is going to go out to the ring, and he would love Nattie to come but if she wants to hang out in the back, that it is fine with him to. So it would appear that Kidd and Nattie are still having their own problems, but it seems Tyson is not worried about them at all! Tyson is to focused on making a name for himself, that he can’t see that Natalya is worried about him! It should be interesting to see where this goes as Tyson left Natalya with a decision to make!

Summer Rae & Sasha Banks Segment

Summer Rae and Sasha Banks are backstage doing their makeup. Summer is bragging about her win over Bayley earlier and Sasha sarcastically states that Summer really deserved that match. Summer goes on about how Sasha is going to want to be her friend again because when she beat Charlotte everyone is going to forget about her! She walks off after telling Banks her lipstick looks “cute.” Sasha still remains to be the wild card in this whole BFF thing. I’m pretty positive that her alliance with Charlotte is over after last week, but it seems that the original two BFF’s may be reforming, which could mean bad news for the NXT Womens Champion.

CJ Parker & Xavier Woods In-Ring Segment

CJ Parker makes his way down to the ring and grabs a mic. He says he wants to apologize for something’s he said last week and asked Xavier Woods to come down to the ring. Woods shortly made his way to the ring, and Parker apologized but Woods explained about how he was about to get his PHD, which means he is not stupid and that he uses logic and logic is the only thing keeping him from ripping that rainbow nest out of Parker’s hair. CJ explained he didn’t want to fight and just wanted peach and extend his hand, but once again Xavier pokes fun at CJ before walking away. Parker had enough and attacked him from behind. Parker explained how he didn’t want it to be this way before the referees separated them. It’s honestly amazing to see how far the CJ Parker character has come! I remember when it was just a big name jobber and now he is quickly becoming one of the better heels. I honestly kind of felt bad for Parker tonight and felt like Woods was the one at fault. Parker apologized for his actions, he didn’t deny them, and even wanted to push whatever problems he and Woods had to the side, but Xavier a man who uses “logic” somehow didn’t see that his constant making fun of Parker was going to set him over!

The Vaudevillians Video Package

A video package is shown of The Vaudevillians, and of course the video is in black in white. They stayed loyal to the old time video era as the two spoke about how soon the will be NXT Tag Team Champions. I wouldn’t rush The Vaudevillians into a feud with The Ascension yet. I would say have them feud with Jason Jordan and Tye Dillinger for a while until they are more established as a team. No team at this moment in the tag division, (minus teams like Zayn and Neville and Gabriel and Kidd) are on the level of The Ascension yet!

Bull Dempsey vs. Angelo Dawkins

Bull Dempsey makes his way to the ring as Angelo Dawkins waits for him in the ring. When the match begins, it does not take Bull long to gain control. Dempsey controlled Dawkins heavily early on landing many heavy strikes and splashes in the turnbuckle. Dawkins had a brief moment of light when he flipped over Dempsey and tried to pull him down for a pin, but Bull just dropped down right on to the chest of Dawkins. Bull continued his dominance over Angelo with only a brief hiccup at the end when Angelo landed some stiff jabs and took Bull off his feet with a dropkick. Bull quickly got back into control once again with the heavy strikes until he lifted Angelo up for The Bulldozer to win the match.

Winner – Bull Dempsey

Grade – C+, Bull Dempsey is still new so I’m not expecting to see much from him. Despite having a very bland look to him, Bull is actually pretty good in the ring, he lives up to his name of being part of a dying breed of old school wrestlers. Angelo had his brief moments, but there wasn’t a point where I actually thought he would win. I expect Bull to continue his dominance until he possibly crosses paths with Mojo Rawley.

Interview W/Sami Zayn & Adrian Neville ©

Sami Zayn is backstage and is ready to interview the NXT Champion, Adrian Neville. Zayn asked Neville why he came down to help him and Neville responded by saying how far they go back and then stating he will always have his back. Neville than asks Zayn, what’s next and Zayn responds by saying that they go to the ring and beat up Kidd and Gabriel before throwing the mic behind him back to Devin Taylor. It’s times like this where I don’t like Sami Zayn. I’ll admit he is one hell of a wrestler, but I don’t know if it’s his personality or just his character, but Sami Zayn really annoys me.

Sami Zayn & Adrian Neville © vs. Justin Gabriel & Tyson Kidd W/Natalya

It is now time for our main event, and everyone makes their entrance normal except of Tyson Kidd. Kidd comes out with Natalya and it seems like Nattie made her decision! As the couple made their way to the ring, Natalya garnered a huge reaction from the crowd! The bell rings and it looks like Tyson Kidd is going to start off with our NXT Champion! The two chain wrestler for a few minutes, until Neville gains the advantage over Kidd and this is where the team of Neville and Zayn begin their dominance. Adrian Neville and Sami Zayn managed to keep Tyson down while making quick tags back and forth to each other. Zayn had Kidd in an arm wringer, but Tyson got his knee into the gut of Zayn and quickly made a tag to Justin, but as soon as Gabriel came in Sami regained control with a hip toss and a quick tag over to Neville which resulted in an impressive feat of teamwork when Neville landed a corkscrew splash onto Justin Gabriel off of Zayn’s back while Sami was on all fours! Gabriel kicks out a two, but Neville goes right back into control over Gabriel. Justin manages to get away from Neville to make a tag to Kidd, but the NXT Champion still manages to keep control over Kidd and tag in Zayn. Zayn locks a headlock onto Kidd and Tyson pushes him all the way back into his corner. Sami fights out of it attacking both Kidd and Gabriel. Sami takes Justin off the apron, but pays for it when Tyson comes over from behind and tosses Zayn over the ropes onto the outside of the ring before the commercial break! Back from the commercial break and we see that Justin Gabriel is now in control over Sami Zayn, and this marks the first time the team of Kidd and Gabriel are in the driver’s seat. The team worked well together, showing their great synergy landing stereo kicks onto the chest of Zayn and numerous other high flying moves. Zayn finally began to fight back as he looked to make a tag to Neville. Justin Gabriel held on to the tight of Zayn, while Sami swung his elbow backwards. Eventually Justin pulled Sami back and tossed him into the turnbuckle, but it was no use as Zayn dodged Gabriel and tagged in Adrian Neville. The NXT Champion came in fast landing many stiff kicks to Gabriel but only could pick up near falls. Neville would not let up and Gabriel, landing many heavy maneuvers including an impressive power bomb that earned him a 2 count! Justin had to fight Neville off to make the tag to Tyson and Kidd spring boarded of the ropes, but the NXT Champ caught Tyson in midair and landed a super kick. Neville covers Tyson and Kidd barley kicks out at two! Neville drags Tyson over to the corner and climbs to the top. It looks like he is going to attempt The Red Arrow, but Justin Gabriel provides a distraction long enough for Kidd to get up and dropkick Neville of the ropes and then hit a springboard elbow that could of won the match if not for Sami Zayn who broke the pin up at two. Gabriel ran at Zayn, and Sami pulled the rope down sending Gabriel to the outside. Back in the ring Neville and Kidd are going back and forth until Neville begins to build up some speed and dives to the outside of the ring onto Justin Gabriel, meanwhile I guess Sami Zayn got the tag as he and Kidd are now in the ring. Sami is controlling Kidd until he sends him to the outside. Sami Zayn than starts to build up speed just like Neville did, and Zayn flips over the ropes onto Kidd, Gabriel and even his partner Adrian Neville. Sami tosses Kidd back into the ring, but scurries over into the turnbuckle and it seems he hurt his knee. The referee is keeping Zayn back while Natalya is checking on her husband. Kidd tries to land a cheap shot on Zayn, but Sami blocks it and lands his own punch that sends Kidd back into Natalya, knocking her off the apron. Both Kidd and Zayn go to check on Nattie, but Kidd uses the distraction to his advantage as he rolls Sami up for the three!

Winners – Tyson Kidd & Justin Gabriel

Grade – A-, Tyson Kidd continues to steal the show on NXT. His character is quickly becoming the most hated heel/bad guy on the roster. Sami Zayn plays the perfect good guy in this rivalry and he and Zayn are sure to put on great matches. I hope we get to see all four of these superstars battle for the NXT World title in a four way match of some kind, but from what it seems like is that the story is going to focus heavily on Zayn, Kidd, and Natalya.

 

Superstar of the Night – Summer Rae

I was originally thinking about giving this award to Tyson Kidd again, but I feel becoming #1 Contender is bigger than just winning a tag match. Once again the show was all about Tyson and he even pulled out a victory over Sami Zayn and NXT Champion, Adrian Neville, but Summer Rae not only opened the show with Bayley, but she same away with the #1 Contendership for Charlotte’s NXT Womens title. We now know for sure that the BFF’s are going to collide and I for one am excited for it!

WWE NXT |7-3-14|Justin Gabriel and Tyson Kidd’s Bet!

Hello my friends and welcome to my review of this week’s edition on NXT! Tonight our advertised Main Event is Justin Gabriel with Tyson Kidd in his corner taking on Sami Zayn!

Colin Cassady W/ Enzo Amore vs. Sylvester Lefort W/ Marcus Louis

Big Cass and Amore are going to open up NXT as they make their way to the ring. Enzo cuts his normal promo before the match and Cassady began to talk about his opponent calling him Peppy Le’Pew. Lefort and Louis is out next and Lefort cuts a promo on Cass, and stating their is no challenge for him. The bell rings and the match is under way! Lefort starts off early with a couple of strikes and even countered Big Cass when he grabbed his throat, but Cassady hits The East River Crossing early and begins to set up for The Empire Elbow as the crowd chants along with him “S-A-W-F-T!” Colin covers Lefort to pick up an easy victory.

Winner – Colin Cassady

Grade – B-, I can kind of understand why Big Cass dominated over Lefort, but if the WWE has any plan of making The Legionaries look like a threat to the Tag Titles, there not doing a good job. The main reason for the grade is because of the amusing banter in the beginning of the match. It wasn’t a bad match, it was just to fast for it to even get good! 

Backstage Interview W/ Adrian Neville (c)

Devin Taylor is backstage ready ton interview the NXT Champion, Adrian Neville. The two talk about his victory over RVD last week and how much of an honor it was for Neville, until the Number One Contender, Tyler Breeze comes in. Tyler talks about how it must be killing Neville to wonder when he will cash in his title shot. Neville said it’s quite the opposite and offers to put the title on the line tonight against him. Breeze aid he would love to, but sadly he suffers a career threatening injury while hand modeling, and shows his broken finger. I heard he suffered a broken finger, but luckily its a small injury that will heal in no time!

The BFF’s |Charlotte (c) & Sasha Banks| vs. Bayley & Becky Lynch

Banks and the NXT Womens Champion makes her way to the ring. The commentators discussed the recent problems between The BFF’s, but apparently Banks and Charlotte fixed things up and said “Every Boss needs a Flair, and every Flair needs a Boss!” Out next is Bayley and her new BFF “Bayley’s Friend Forever!”  Bayley stated that in a record promo before the match, where she also talked about how excited she was to take what remained of The BFF’s. Bayley and Sasha Banks started the match off! Bayley stayed in constant control landing several strikes on Banks and hitting her with many impressive moves before making the tag to Lynch. Becky climbed to the top rope as Bayley held on the Banks arm, Lynch jumps off the top rope and hits an Ax Handle onto Banks arm. Lynch grabbed her into a headlock, but Sasha pushes Becky back into her corer to make the tag to Charlotte! Charlotte comes in and keeps control over Becky Lynch, covering her for a pin of only two before Lynch slid her way out of it and began to take it to The NXT Womens Champion using her speed to her advantage. Becky and Bayley worked real together, keeping tags fresh and even clearing the ring of both The BFF’s when The Suplexed Charlotte and than Clotheslined Banks! The BFF’s raced out of the ring and Bayley and Becky are looking good, before the commercial break! Once back from the break, we see Bayley o the outside of the ring, while Charlotte tags in Banks back in the ring. Bayley quickly pulls Banks off the apron and starts to beat down on her on the outside of the ring, until The NXT Womens Champion, baseball slid under the ropes, right into the back of Bayley. The BFF’s took their opening and began to dominate over Bayley. Th BFF’s wear Bayley down with constant strikes and great teamwork. The NXT Womens Champion, uses her signature Figure Four Headlock on Bayley to wear her down even more, and no matter how hard Bayley tried The BFF’s had a counter for every move. After making the tag back into Sasha Banks, The BFF’s went to bounce Bayley off the ropes, but she quickly turned it around on them, trying them up and forcing The BFF’s to collide face first. As Bayley crawled to tag in Becky Lynch, Banks grabbed her leg and looked to strop her, but she pushed Sasha off and sent her into Charlotte and than made the tag to Lynch! The Fiery Red Head came in and began to take it to Banks with uppercuts and numerous Leg Drops before going for the pin for only two before Charlotte races in and breaks it up. Bayley races in and tries to take Charlotte out, but The NXT Womens Champion counters her and tosses her outside of the ring before getting the tag from Banks. Charlotte races in and dropkicks the leg of Becky Lynch, perfectly setting her up for Bow Down to the Queen! Charlotte hits in and covers her for the three!

Winners – The BFF’s |Charlotte (c) & Sasha Banks|

Grade – B,  Some solid tag team action here tonight between these four divas! After the match, Charlotte left the ring while Sasha stayed in to get her arm raised and to trash talk Becky Lynch some more. Bayley raced in and took Banks out before tossing her out of the ring. It seems like only a matter of time before The BFF’s explode! I still feel like where going to have a Triple Threat Match between all three of The BFF’s (Summer Rae, Sasha Banks & Charlotte) over the title, but Bayley seems to have change of character going for her. Were seeing he grow a little more aggressive, and with her history with Charlotte, I sure wouldn’t mind seeing a feud between those two in the future either!

Backstage Interview W/Justin Gabriel

Devin Taylor is backstage to interview Justin Gabriel, the two talk about his match with Sami Zayn latter tonight until Tyson Kidd interrupts when he calls Zayn a loser. Tyson talks to Gabriel about hos he lost to Adrian Neville and how is career is slowly falling into Purgatory! Tyson also states that the only way to stop it is to take your boot and step on the heads of anyone trying to rise up! Gabriel says Kidd is wrong and that he is going to prove it tonight when he beats Sami Zayn. Tyson seems to have officially turned heel, but I can’t help to see the truth in his words. While young talent such as Roman Reigns, Cesaro and The Wyatt’s rise up the once promising careers of Tyson Kidd and Gabriel are slowly dimming away, and it’s only a matter of time that they get the same phone call that Brodus Clay, Drew McIntyre and JTG all got recently, unless they do something about it!

The BFF’s |Charlotte (c) & Sasha Banks| Segment

Banks questions why Charlotte didn’t help her when Bayley attacked her. Charlotte answered by stating they won’t be tagging anymore and she wants to be on her own. Banks asks Charlotte if she knows how much she has done for her and quickly asks if this is about Summer. Charlotte quickly responds saying Summer only made it clearer, and Banks states the hr and Summer got along a lot better before Charlotte and announced that next week Bayley takes on Summer Rae for the Number One Contenderhship for the NXT Womens Championship! It seems The BFF’s have officially ended or at least Charlotte is no longer a member. The fact that Banks acknowledged her and Summer got along a lot better before Charlotte joined makes me feel those two will still stay BFF’s but who knows since Summer is on the main roster anyway! Either way, I suspect Banks to play a role in the number one contenders match o make sure her BFF, Summer wins!

CJ Parker vs. Steve Cutler

CJ Parker makes his way to the ring with a new entrance theme and video. The only real interesting thing to note is he took a sign from a fan that read “Woods” with and “X” over it. The commentators pointed out the Parker seems to have a problem with Xavier Woods. His opponent is already in the ring, and this match is under way!  Parker went right after Cutler not letting him get a single move in while he just showered him with punches while screaming at him that it is his fault the world is the way it is. CJ Parker stood back into the turnbuckle as he waited for Steve Cutler to get to his feet. Once Cutler was up on is feet, Parker hit him with a Heel Kick to win the match.

Winner – CJ Parker

Grade – B-, The match was really to quick to really judge, but this is the beginning of Parker’s new character so it was expected. The real reason why this grade was so high is because of Parker’s aftermath promo! CJ Parker grabbed the mic and spoke about Xavier Woods is about to t his doctors degree and than questions what he has done since he left NXT, before giving a brief rundown of what has has done. Parker said if he was in Woods’s position he’d win titles and make a name for himself while saving the world, and ended it by saying Woods has what he wants and he is coming for it. Even though the fans didn’t give him the response I feel he deserved, Parker look good in the ring tonight and cut a pretty good promo. It seems CJ has finally found his stride! 

Renee Young Interview W/ Tyson Kidd

Renee Young sat down with Tyson Kidd in an interview where she could ask him anything. Young asked Tyson about Not shaking Neville’s hand after their match, his problems as of late with Natalya and walking out on his Tag Title match with Zayn. Tyson seemed o respond to every answer the same way basically saying his head wasn’t where is should be. It wasn’t until Young told Tyson that a lot of people are saying he and Nattie are going through some Martial Problems and asked if that was something Tyson would like to talk to her about. Tyson had other plans as he got up and walked away in disgust. This was a very different Tyson than from witch we saw earlier tonight. Tyson blamed a lot of things on just his mind not being in the right place and it makes me think this could go two different ways. One, Tyson is lying through his teeth or two, the guy has split personalities! Either way I’ve really been enjoying the character of Tyson Kidd as of late, and I feel he has become one of the best things NXT has to offer. Who knows maybe NXT is what Tyson needs to turn his career around!

Sami Zayn vs. Justin Gabriel W/Tyson Kidd

Sami makes his way to the ring to much fan fare, and out next is his opponent for the night, Justin Gabriel! Gabriel is being accompanied by Tyson Kidd, and the two seem to be getting along. It was brought up how both Gabriel and Kidd were Tag partners at some point, but the match was very Chain Wrestling heavy in the beginning with Zayn controlling Justin no matter what he did. Gabriel had to use the ropes several times to get Zayn ff him and every time he looked over at Kidd, while Tyson just shook his head and said I told you so. Justin finally got back in the match as Zayn bounced him off the ropes, he held on and than took Sami down with a clothesline and followed up with a stiff kick before covering him for a two and than commercial break! Back from the break, and we see Gabriel is still controlling Zayn with some stiff strikes and follows up with a Spinning Kick, connecting right on the jaw of Zayn that only gives him a two count. Justin does not let Zayn take a break as he picks him and and hits him with and under hook suplex and than floats over to lock in a chicken wing, before covering him for a two again. Justin now connection with some heavy strikes onto the skull of Zayn on the ropes. Sami begins to fight back landing some heavy strikes of his own before Gabriel sweeps him off his feet, sending Zayn face first into the canvas, but once again only for a two count! Justin seems to be getting frustrated as he forces Zayn up and once again hits him with some heavy strikes to the face and also connecting with some Knife Edge Chops to the chest! Gabriel bounces Zayn off the ropes and Sami counters into a clothesline and begins to take it to Gabriel before taking him down with a drop kick. Once Justin is back to his feet Sami hits him with a Blue Thunder Bomb for a two count! As Sami tries to get Justin to his feet, Gabriel hits a jaw breaker that sends Zayn back into the turnbuckle. Gabriel runs at him with a forearm but Zayn caught him and landed The Exploder Suplex! Sami than backed up into the corner across from Gabriel and ran at him with The Helluva Kick, but Justin moved and leaped at Zayn. Sami got out of the way but Justin landed on the second turnbuckle and lept off it to land a kick right on the jaw of Zayn for a two! Gabriel goes for a German Suplex but Sami gets his elbow in, but Gabriel ducks the other one and lifts him up into the potion of a Whit Noise, but Gabriel instead drops Zayn neck right on to his knee, but once again Sami kicks out. Gabriel than hits a springboard moonsault but once again Zayn kicks out. Gabriel now frustrated hits Zayn with a back breaker that sets him up for the 450 Splash! Gabriel climbs to the top turnbuckle but Zayn is now up and the two begin to battle on the top rope, until Gabriel as no choice but to jump over Sami. Gabriel ruses over to Sami, but Zayn catches him off guard and hits a reverse Russian Leg Sweep, before locking in the Koji Clutch  to force Justin Gabriel to tap out!

Winner Sami Zayn

Grade – B+, Once the match ended, Tyson got in the ring to check on Gabriel. Zayn looked over at Tyson, but the second Zayn turned his head Tyson jumped him from behind and started stomping on Zayn. Gabriel got to his feet and asked Tyson what he was doing before Kidd talked him into kicking Zayn. Both Tyson and Gabriel began to beat down on Sami until the NXT Champion, Adrian Neville raced to his rescue! Gabriel and Sami put on the match of the night tonight, but let’s be honest there wasn’t much competition tonight! Justin does not prove Tyson wrong, but it seemed like the two of joined sides once again. I have no problem with this! I felt that Kidd and Gabriel made a great team before Tyson was injured. The only thing I wonder is if they will challenge for the NXT Tag Titles and maybe even become an official team of the WWE. One thing my gut is telling me, is that Neville may defend his tile in a Fatal Four Way against Zayn, Kidd and Gabriel! and that’s a a match I believe we all can get excited about!

Superstar of the Night – Tyson Kidd

Tyson may not have stepped into the ring tonight, but he didn’t have to! The show seemed to revolve around him tonight! From interrupting Justin earlier in the night, to his interview with Renee Young and of course to him ending the show beating down on Zayn along while Gabriel helped! Kidd has quickly become one of the top heels in NXT and is also becoming one of the more entertaining stars on the roster, and now with a potential new tag team partner with Justin Gabriel! Tyson Kidd may find himself wearing Tag Team Gold pretty soon and maybe even the NXT World title if he Fatal Four Way prediction is correct!

WWE NXT |6-26-14| The Certified G! Returns to NXT!

Hello my friends and welcome to my review of this weeks edition of NXT! Tonight our advertised match may be considered a dream match to some! As our NXT World Champion, Adrian Neville takes on WWE Legend, The Whole F’N Show! Rob Van Dam!

The Vaudevillians (Aiden English & Simon Gotch) vs. T-Perkins & Matt Sugarman.

I’m going to be trying something different here tonight, and instead of explaining everything that happened in the match in detail, I’m instead going to highlight the Highs and the Lows of the match. Last week we got our first look at The Vaudevillians as a team, and I’m super excited because we need more tag teams! They have an interesting look and it seems the fans our into! there opponents are already in the ring and thanks to the lovely Renee Young we find out their names our T-Perkins and Matt Sugarman. Sugarman, who started off the match with English is a very tall young man with a muscular build. He took the early control over Aiden and tagged in his partner T-Perkins. This was the last we saw of Sugarman in the match as Aiden and Simon began to take control over Perkins with some great team maneuvers, such as when Aiden rammed his shoulder into Perkins gut to drive him back into their turnbuckle, while Gotch backed up on the outside apron to build up some speed before hitting Perkins with a running clothesline! T-Perkins did fight back a little but it was only a matter of time before Gotch gained control. He locked in a head scissors on Perkins and than forced him to sit up with the head scissors still locked in and began to do some push ups. I don’t know if I mentioned this last week, but Simon Gotch’s gimmick is a circus strong man. Gotch eventually picked Perkins up onto his shoulder after a little fight from him , and tagged English back in! The team than hit the signature move as Gotch his a Regal Roll (That’s all I know it as) onto Perkins and Aiden leaped off the top rope and hit a senton flip! The move is called “That’s A Wrap.” and it earned them the victory tonight!

Winners – The Vaudevillians

Grade – B, This one only The Vaudevillians second match as a team, so don’t expect them to face some real challenges yet, but for a fun short match they did succeed. They are an entertaining duo and seem to work really well as a team! There not at the level to face The Ascension yet, but with young teams such as Jason Jordan & Tye Dillinger looking to rise up as well, I expect they will cross past The Vaudevillians, and that could be great!

Sami Zayn Backstage Exclusive.

We are shown a video of the events that happened last week after Tyson Kidd and Sami Zayn teamed up to challenge The Ascension for their NXT Tag Team Championships! Kidd & Zayn lost because Tyson abandoned the match. We are then shown a backstage exclusive from last week after NXT went off air. Sami Zayn spoke about how he did say “You need to lose first, before you can learn to win.” He also stated that does not mean I like to lose especially when it’s because of a partner. He ended the video by stating “This is not the last you’ll hear about me and Tyson,” hinting at a potential feud between the two in the future! A feud I’m sure we can all get excited about!

Xavier Woods vs. Bull Dempsey

Xavier makes his way to the ring first out to some really great new theme music! One notable thing to mention that happened during Woods’s entrance, NXT’s resident hippie, CJ Parker once again walked around with a recycled sign reading “Everyday is Earth Day” and I did not catch what the other side said. Woods and Parker had a few words, before his opponent’s theme music played. “BULL BULL BULL” played over the loudspeaker and Bull Dempsey makes his NXT debut? Dempsey who has been used in the past on a jobber is know of all a sudden getting used? I feel bad for Xavier Woods! Woods showed a little disrespect before they locked up as he swung his hair forward and splashing Dempsey with the water? in it. but as the locked up Dempsey showed off his strength by forcing Woods into the turnbuckle, and it didn’t stop there as he continued to wear Woods down with numerous headlocks for long periods of times. When Dempsey felt like striking though it looked rough. At one point in the match Bull hit Woods with an impressive headbutt and followed up with some stiff elbows. Woods had moments were it looked like he would come back, but Bull shut him down every time. I’m not sure how the crowd feels about since they did chant “BULL, BULL, BULL” as he measured Woods up before running at him and hitting him with a splash in the turnbuckle, but than at another point they poked fun at Dempsey chanting “Put Some Pants On!” Woods tried to battle back and began to get back into hitting Dempsey with some impressive kicks but once he leaped from the top rope it was over as Woods landed on a knife edge chop from Bull! Bull ended the match after hitting a suplex he calls The Bulldozer! After the match ended, Bull grabbed a mic and addressed the NXT Universe! Bull talks about how they have just witnessed the last of a dying breed, and how NXT how let the kids run this place for to long and now its time for the adults to come in. He stated this industry used to be run by men and tonight marks the beginning of a new era of devastation and the start of Bull Dempsey!

Winner – Bull Dempsey

Grade – B, Xavier Woods has fallen far down the totem pole! Bull Dempsey has officially stepped out of the jobber zone and has made his impact on NXT. Alex Riley stated that he was The Last of a Dying Breed! Bull impressed me here tonight, most of the match felt like it was held in a headlock, but the moments when he pulled out different moves he shown! The headbutt was incredible! and he managed to get the crowd behind him in his “debut” match. His after match promo was  better than I expected, he stated who he was and practically told us what every other big wrestlers have told us!It’s to early to judge Bull’s character, but from his in ring work it’s a lot better than I expected

Summer Rae W/ Sasha Banks & Charlotte (c) vs. Becky Lynch

Summer Rae returns to NXT and it seems The BFF’s have made up as both Sasha Banks and The NXT Womens Champion, Charlotte accompany Summer. Summer’s opponent is the debuting Becky Lynch, he seems to have some sort of Irish Rocker Gimmick? She’s got some sort Irish thing going on for her, if she ever make it to the main roster, there’s always potential for a story line with fellow Irish men, Sheamus! A little of topic, back to the match! Becky was doing some sort of dance, (I assume Irish) while making this annoying sound, I’m also assuming it was a  song. Summer decided she wanted to show off her dance moves and we had a dance show down for a bit until Summer got irritated and kicked Becky in the gut. The two began to trade blows and counter each others moves. Becky fired with some quick high flying maneuvers catching Rae off guard many times, but Summer fired back with some stiff strikes and of course using her long legs to her advantage. The focus turned to Sasha and Charlotte on the outside as it seems the two were competing to see who the crowd liked more. Summer confronted her team mates stating “This is my match” Lynch would not wait for Summer as she rolled her up from behind and covered her for a two. Summer begged her team mates for help, but they laughed it off as Becky began to control the match eventually ending Summer with an impressive suplex!

Winner – Becky Lynch

Grade – B+, Tonight seems to be the night for debuts! The Vaudevillians who is still a new team, the “debut” of Bull Dempsey and now the newest addition to the NXT Womens Roster, Becky Lynch. I stated in the beginning of that review that it seemed The BFF’s have made up, but apparently both Banks and Charlotte were bored and decided to compete with the NXT Crowd over who is more popular than watch and cheer Rae on. Becky scores a huge victory here tonight over a WWE Diva and one of the stars of E!’s hit series Total Divas. The crowd was in love with Becky Lynch tonight and if that continues, Charlotte may have a challenger fr her title!

Colin Cassady vs. Sawyer Fulton

Colin came out to a great crowd reaction, that beginning to become a recurring thing Big Cass! His opponent, Sawyer Fulton his already in the ring. Colin and Fulton lock up early on, but Sawyer took control of the match and never let go as he kept Colin on the defense with his superior strength. Colin found a way to land a huge big boot to Fulton and led the crowd into a chant of “S-A-W-F-T” before landing a 7 Foot Elbow drop on Fulton for the win. Colin could not celebrate for long, before The Legionaries made their way down to the ring! Things were not looking good as the team surrounded him, by the theme music of his good friend, Enzo Amore as he makes his return and his way down to the ring! The Legionaries abandon ringside and Amore grabs a mic! Enzo introduced himself and stated he is a certified G and that you can’t teach that! He poked fun at The Legionaries and ended it by calling them SAWFT!

Winner – Colin Cassady

Grade – B+, Colin’s match with Sawyer did not earn this grade. The match itself was rather boring with Sawyer mostly dominated Cassady in the beginning and Colin only hitting two moves in the match. Colin did keep it excited, but what was most excited was the return of Enzo Amore! Amore joins the list of superstars who have returned and/or made their debut’s here tonight on NXT! The NXT Tag Team Division was so small not to long ago, but now The Ascension’s list of challengers grows as The Vaudevillians, The Legionnaires, Jason Jordan & Tye Dillinger and now Big Cass and Enzo Amore occupy the list!

Adrian Neville (c) vs. Rob Van Dam

Apparently Alex Riley has been kicked off the commentary table and the number one contender for the NXT Championship, Tyler Breeze will take his place. Both Neville and Van Dam came out to a great crowd response and they shook hands before the match begins. The commentary throughout the match between Renee Young and Tyler Breeze was hilarious, as she continued to ask Breeze questions that he had no interest in answering. I could honestly write whole review on it! but back to the match. Van Dan and Neville kept up with each other landing kicks and strikes. Neville gained the upper hand as he clotheslined Van Dam over the ropes onto the outside of the ring. Van Dam seemed to be gassed as he stayed outside the ring up until the 7 count. Right when he got back in the ring the two began to fight once again with Neville gaining control! The NXT Champ continued to control Van Dam until, RVD manged to get  Neville outside of the ring and use it to its advantage, but the soon back fired on RVD as Neville climbed to the rope and hit a moonsault on RVD onto the outside of the ring! Back from commercial break, Neville is once again in control over Van Dam, keeping him matted with a front face lock! Van Dam broke out of it and got back into control as he perched Neville onto the top rope and hit a flying kick right into his jaw. Van Dam followed up with many of his trademark moves hitting the spinning leg drop and of course The Rolling Thunder! The turnbuckle quickly became Van Dam’s friend as he landed numerous spinning kicks to the jaw of Neville. Van Dam enjoyed this control over Neville as I continued to enjoy and get distracted by listening to the commentary by Renee Young and Tyler Breeze! Neville and Van Dam began to trade blows hitting each other with some serious kicks and following up with many quick maneuvers and countering each others moves! Van Dam gained control with a huge slam and went for a split legged moonsault, but Neville moved out of the way and began to fire and RVD with some stiff kicks. Neville followed up with a beautiful dropkick and covered Van Dam but only for a two. Neville continued to hit RVD with some heavy moves that only gave him the same result, a two count! RVD began to fight back in the match and Neville with a stiff kick to the jaw that knocked the NXT Champ out. RVD went to the top rope and leaped for the Five Star Frog Splash but Neville moved out of the way and RVD landed flat on his face. The NXT Champion followed up with a missile dropkick that sent RVD flying backwards and set him up for The Red Arrow for the win! RVD seemed shocked by the victory but still shook Neville’s hand and rose his hand in victory giving the NXT Champion a load of respect. Tyler Breeze on the other hand is not impressed and said “Adrian Neville is the champion but he needs to prepare for the number on contender,” and than he stood up on the announce table as he stared Neville down to end the show!

Winner – Adrian Neville (c)

Grade – A, This is a combination of both the match on the commentary. Neville showed off his A game tonight in this match against a man he looked up to. RVD took some heavy hit from Neville but he sure gave him a run for his money. It looked like Van Dam had the win when he went for the Five Star Frog Splash, but Neville avoided it and it his Red Arrow to upset Van Dam and score a huge victory over a legend in the WWE! Tyler Breeze on the other hand stole the show in my opinion! I found myself paying more attention to what Breeze was saying over the match. His commentary with Renee Yong was just brilliant. Young asked Tyler many questions and Tyler really did not care for what she had to say. These two work great together and I would love to see more of these two, maybe an actual interview! Great Match all around tonight!

Superstar of the Night – Adrian Neville!

Once again the NXT Champion claims this prize. I debated giving it to Enzo Amore or Tyler Breeze, but when I really think about, Neville’s victory over RVD means a lot more than you think! Despite how RVD has been booked as of late, he is a very accomplished superstar and a future WWE Hall of Famer! he is a former Intercontinental Champion, Tag Team Champion, ECW Champion and WWE Champion! and Adrian Neville beat him tonight. The NXT Champion his beginning to look unstoppable and Breeze seems to be all talk, but will he be ready for action. If you ask Renee Young, she would probably say not any time soon. Over all a great show tonight that saw the “debut” of Bull Dempsey and the debut of Becky Lynch along with the return of Enzo Amore and an great match between our NXT Champion and The Whole F’N Show! See you at Money in the Bank everybody!
