WWE NXT |5-8-14|Who Will Face Neville at Take Over?

Hello my friends and welcome to my review of May 8th’s edition of NXT! Tonight our advertised main event is a Battle Royal to determine to Number One Contender for Adrian Neville’s NXT Championship! and one can only assume the winner of this battle royal will go on to challenge Neville at the next NXT special Take Over! Let’s get started!

Round One of The NXT Womens Championship Tournament.

Emma vs. Charlotte W/ Sasha Banks

We are starting off the night with the second part of round one of the Womens Championship Tourney! We saw both Sasha Banks and Natalya moves on to Round two last week and both Charlotte and Emma are looking to do the same thing, but they have to beat each other! Emma sadly ever since her debut to the main roster has not been on quite the roll! She has found her self stuck in a pointless story that involves her and Santino Marella being “in love,” but Emma has also been racking up quite a losing steak in NXT, but on the other hand her opponent, Charlotte has seen many victories as of late! Emma and Charlotte have faces off before and I’ll be honest there wasn’t much to this match! Emma got in little offense and Charlotte really dominated the majority of the match by using a couple of submission moves. Emma managed to get back into the match, but she used all of her time to pull out Venemma, The Female Snake Sock Puppet that I guess you can say is in love with Santino’s Cobra. Emma attempted to use The Cobra on Charlotte, but luck for Ms. Flair, Sasha Banks was there to warn her, Charlotte ducks and Emma connected The Cobra on Ms. Banks, but Charlotte rolled her up with an interesting pin she calls Charlotte’s Web to pick up the win.

Winner – Charlotte

Ranking – 4\10: Both these women are capable of so much more. I know on the main roster, Emma is stuck in that horrible story, but NXT is where I come to get away from that horrible story. Whenever I see Emma in action on NXT, I’ve come to expect a good match, but tonight was the opposite. Charlotte practically squashed Emma here tonight, and she looks to be the heavy favorite heading into Round Two. We will find out who she faces later tonight!

The Legionnaires (Sylvester Lefort & Marcus Louis) vs. Kalisto & El Local 

Next up is some tag team action between two unknown teams, first is a familiar face as the former manger of Rusev and Scott Dawson, Sylvester Lefort teams up with a new guy named Marcus Louis and they form The Legionnaires, and our next team see another familiar face in El Local and he is also teaming up with a new guy named Kalisto! So two of NXT’s jobbers are looking to step into the tag division! The match starts off with Local and Lefort, and The is the beginning of a one sided beat down! Lefort and Louis took turns tagging each other in to beat down on Local, but finally after waiting for so long Local got himself back in the match by preventing himself from going into the turnbuckle and landing a nice kick right between the eyes of Louis. Both Louis and Local made a tag to their partners. Kalisto comes in with a HUGE Spring Board Cross Body, catching Lefort, and than follows up with an interesting move, it looking kind of like a Cork Screw right into Lefort as he was running at him. Kalisto covered him for the pin, but Marcus Louis was there to break up the pin and even prevented an attack from El Local, or so he though. Louis tossed Local into the ropes, but Local caught himself between the ropes and hung there until Louis went running at him, but Local moved out of the way sending Louis outside the ring and than landed a Cross Body onto him on the outside! Back in the ring Kalisto remains in control as he hits Lefort with many stiff kicks before bouncing into the ropes with a Hand Stand and quickly turning it around to land a kick right to the side of the skull of Lefort. Kalisto covered for a three count.

Winners – Kalisto & El Local

Rating – 5\10: The beginning of this match was such a bore, but the second Kalisto got into this match it got exciting. Kalisto showed of his Lucha skill in the ring tonight and picked up his first win on his debut night. It seems like the NXT Tag Division is beginning to fill up nicely and I’m excited to not only see where this goes, but to see where Kalisto goes in his career!

Camacho vs. Captain Comic

Before this match even was announced, we saw a video of Adam Rose “pumping up” his Rosebud! The match is taking place all because of what happened last week. Captain Comic bumped into Camacho, so after Adam Rose defeated Danny Burch last week, and his Rosebuds came out to join him to celebrate his victory, but Camacho ran down and clotheslined Captain Comic from behind! So tonight the two our facing off, and it was a complete squash as it should of been. Camacho really took it to Comic with hard hitting moves such as, The Dropkick, Wrestling Slams, Jumping Leg Drops and even finished off the match with a Running Samoan Drop!

Winner – Camacho

Rating – 5\10: It’s kind of funny how we have come full circle. Camacho, who used to be a jobber himself, is now doing the jobbing! The was a clever way to keep the feud between Camacho and Rose in our minds, while at the same time limiting their time together. After the match Camacho was looking to beat down on Captain Comic some more, but Rose rushed to the ring to protect his Rosebud. Adam stood there and dared Camacho to come back into the ring as Camacho left. Even though this was a short and one sided match. It actually accomplished quite a lot! Not only to it further the feud between Camacho and Adam Rose, but it showed that Camacho is actually not as green as I thought he was and it even showed character development for Rose, who is usually shown as always happy, but showed tonight he isn’t to happy when one of his Rosebuds are getting beaten up!

Backstage Promos by Alicia Fox & Alexa Bliss

Up next in the final match in Round one of The NXT Womens Championship tourney, but before the match we have two promos by the two women who will be competing in a bit. First is former Divas Champion, Alicia Fox who tells us she can see the future and she sees gold in her future and ends by saying Haters are going to Hate and Winners are to going to Celebrate. Up next is the debuting Alexa Bliss who seems to be playing a good girl kind of character. She expresses how she would love to be take Paige’s place as the Champion and ends her promo by saying when it comes to her, everything is Bliss!

Round One of The NXT Womens Championship Tournament.

Alicia Fox vs. Alexa Bliss

Now it is time for the final match of Round one of the NXT Championship Tourney. We know next week Sasha Banks will face off against Natalya in Round two and Charlotte will be facing either former Divas Champion, Alicia Fox of the debuting Alexa Bliss. Bliss came out with a sparkling Tutu on and even blew glitter at the NXT Universe. I believe Renee Young called her a Fairy, but she reminds me a little more of my friend Alicia honestly or maybe even a Disney Princess. Fox poked fun at the size difference, Bliss is 5 foot something while Fox stands at Six feet! Bliss caught Fox off guard in the beginning, but that did not last long. Alicia Fox hit a hard Tilt a Whirl Back Breaker that did not put Bliss away. Fox kept on with the offense though as she locked in a head lock and kept it locked in, until Bliss fought out of it. Alexa bounced off the ropes, but Alicia caught her and attempted to hit another Tilt O Whirl Back Breaker, but Bliss revered it into a Small Package Pin, to pick up the upset victory.

Winner – Alexa Bliss

Rating – 5\10: Alexa Bliss impresses on her debut as she beats a former Divas Champion, ans she continues on to Round Two, but she has a tough challenge against the heavy favorite, Charlotte! The match itself wasn’t to great, we saw to much dominance from Ms. Fox and even a head lock that felt like forever. I know Fox is capable of more than that, but I don’t know much about Bliss, but who knows maybe she can upset Charlotte and go on to become the New NXT Womens Champion!

Backstage Interview W/Adrian Neville (c)

Devin Taylor is backstage with our NXT Champion, Adrian Neville. First Devin congratulates Neville on a successful title defense against Brodus Clay last week and goes on to ask him about The Battle Royal tonight to determine the Number One Contender for his title. Neville thanks Devin, and goes on to say The Funkasaurous, Brodus Clay is extinct and all that is left his him. He than goes on to say whoever wins this battle royal tonight has his respect and puts over how hard battle royals and even mentions how Cesaro won The Andre the Giant Battle Royal. Neville ends the interview by saying he looks forward to the match!

Battle Royal for The Number One Contender for the NXT World Championship!

It is now time for our Main Event! Whoever wins this Battle Royal will go on to challenge Adrian Neville for the NXT Championship at NXT: Take Over. I don’t know the names of everyone in the battle royal so I’m just going to name off the ones I know. So in the ring after our commercial breaks our superstars such as, Brodus Clay, Aiden English, The Legionnaires, Kalisto, El Local, Colin Cassady, Oliver Grey, Mason Ryan, Yoshi Tatsu, Xavier Woods, and that is all I caught! Mojo Rawley comes out next, and after him is Sami Zayn, during Zayn’s entrance I also saw at the corner of my eye Tyler Breeze and Tyson Kidd get into the ring as well, and the final superstar to make his entrance his the former and longest reigning NXT Champion, Bo Dallas! The Battle royal begins and it is not to long until we have our first elimination, as Brodus Clay tossed out the now released Oliver Grey!

Brodus Clay Eliminates Oliver Grey.

and quickly just as Oliver Grey is gone we have our next elimination, as Brodus Clay tosses out the former WWE Tag Team Champion, Curt Hawkins.

Brodus Clay Eliminates Curt Hawkins.

The superstars begin to brawl once again, but its not to long until we see a group of superstars gang up on the biggest competitor, to work together to get our next elimination.

Multiple Superstars Eliminate Brodus Clay.

Once again the superstars begin to brawl. We see many superstars trying to eliminate the others, but none succeed, but one! Aiden English tosses Danny Burch out of the ring

Aiden English Eliminates Danny Burch.

The superstars go back to brawling, we even get to see El Local connect with a stiff kick to the side of the skull of Camacho, but our next Big Guy makes his presence known, its to bad he just got released not to long ago. Mason Ryan lifts Aiden English over his head and tosses him onto Danny Burch.

Mason Ryan Eliminates Aiden English.

After that elimination, Ryan taunted English while he leaned against the ropes. Honestly Camacho could of tossed him over, but instead we go to commercial break. Once were back for the commercial we see El Local and another superstar, sadly I did not see who it was but they were also eliminated. We were also told during the commercial break Xavier Woods was tossed over, but he landed on the steel steps! Baron Corbin almost eliminates Camacho, but he just hung on. After awhile a Yoshi Tatsu chant broke out for the first time ever in WWE! Mason Ryan his beating down on former NXT Champ, Bo Dallas, meanwhile we see Sylvester Lefort trying to eliminated Kalisto, but Kalisto turns it around and ends up Hurricaraning Lefort and himself over the ropes and down to the floor.

Kalisto Eliminates Sylvester Lefort & Himself.

It is a little while until our next elimination, in the mean time we see many of the superstars battling. There our many superstars left, Xavier Woods and Camacho start to have a chop battle in the middle of the ring as the two traded knife edge tops, but it wasn’t long until Camacho backed up against the ropes. Woods went after Camacho, but he pushed him off, but Woods ran right at Camacho and clotheslined himself and Camacho over the ropes and to the floor.

Xavier Woods Eliminates Camacho & Himself.

The commentators pointed out there our still quite a few big guys in the match, pointing out Mojo Rawley, Mason Ryan, Baron Corbin and Colin Cassady witch could be a very bad thing for late in a battle royal. The commentators also point out that Bo Dallas won last years battle royal and than begin to talk about Sami Zayn, while Zayn attempts to eliminate Baron Corbin, but Dallas attacks him, meanwhile Jason Jordan manages to come up with a huge elimination when he tossed Mojo Rawley over!

Jason Jordan Eliminates Mojo Rawley.

The ring is starting to become more angry. The following superstars remain, Bo Dallas, Sami Zayn, Mason Ryan, Colin Cassady, Tyler Breeze, Baron Corbin, Yoshi Tatsu, and Tyson Kidd and Jason Jordan. Jordan looks to take out yet another big guy. He picks a battle with Baron Corbin, that see him almost get eliminated, but as Corbin went running at him Jordan hits him with a forearm and goes to launch himself back into the ring at Corbin, but Corbin puts his hands up and shoves Jason Jordan out of the ring.

Baron Corbin Eliminates Jason Jordan.

Former NXT World Champion, Bo Dallas goes right after Baron Corbin after the elimination. The two begin to brawl while another Yoshi Tatsu chant breaks out! Dallas has Corbin against the ropes and clotheslines him over them to eliminate him!

Bo Dallas Eliminates Baron Corbin.

Jason Alexander cries over the fact his pick, Baron Corbin, was eliminated! Meanwhile Bo Dallas than picks a fight with Yoshi Tatsu, but Tatsu fights back and has the Former Champ against the ropes. Tatsu goes for a kick to the head of Dallas, but Bo is able to duck it and clotheslines Tatsu over the ropes for another elimination!

Bo Dallas Eliminates Yoshi Tatsu.

The NXT Universe was not to happy to see the man they have been cheering for, Yoshi Tatsu eliminated, and Bo now joins Colin Cassady in the corner to beat down on Mason Ryan. Ryan gets outs of the corner and lifts Bo up onto his shoulders and begins to run, but Bo slides down and uses Ryan’s momentum against him and Mason flies over the ropes!

Bo Dallas Eliminates Mason Ryan.

The Commentators mention there are only five superstars left, but not for long as Bo makes it four in a row when he runs at Colin Cassady, who is leaning up against the ropes, and clotheslines Cassady out of the ring!

Bo Dallas Eliminates Colin Cassady.

and We are down to our Final Four! Bo Dallas, Tyler Breeze, Sami Zayn and Tyson Kidd. I can see all four of these men getting a title shot! Bo has history and almost feels naked without the NXT Title around his waist, Breeze has been rising up in popularity, many feel Zayn should of been the one to take the title of Bo’s waist and Kidd has been on a roll since he began to call NXT his home picking up victories over both Mason Ryan and former champ, Bo Dallas and even earning my Superstar of the Week award Two Weeks in a Row! Dallas quickly after eliminating Cassady goes after the closest superstar next to him, witch just so happens to be Tyson Kidd! Dallas grabs Kidd and looks to toss Kidd over the ropes and make it five in a row, but Tyson reverses it and ends up tossing Bo over the ropes!

Tyson Kidd Eliminates Bo Dallas.

The former champion is stunned and pissed! Kidd goes after Breeze, and the two begin to brawl. Breeze tosses Kidd over the ropes, but Tyson hangs on and hits Breeze with a kick to the side of the head before sliding back into the ring. Tyson began bouncing of the ropes, but Breeze catches him off guard with The Beauty Shot! Kidd seems to be knocked out, Breeze tried to lift him but can’t and turns his attention towards Sami Zayn! These two begin to put on a mini match, but it makes its way back into the battle royal as Zayn has Breeze on the outside and is trying to eliminate him. Zayn hits Breeze with some hard punches to the face But Breeze manages to hand on on hit a shoulder thrust into Zayn’s gut between the rings. Breeze than tosses Zayn out of the ring, but Zayn quite literally hangs on. Tyler Breeze returns the favor to Zayn as he strikes him with some punches to the head and gut, as he tries to eliminate him. Tyson Kidd comes running up from behind, but Breeze tosses him over as well almost eliminating Kidd, but just like Zayn Tyson barley hangs on. Both Kidd and Zayn are hanging their while Breeze hammers them with fist. Tyson manages to get his legs around the throat of Breeze and he pulls him over the ropes to eliminate him, but Breeze hits Sami Zayn on his way down and it would appear that all three superstars hit the ground at the same time!

Winner – N/A

Rating – 8/10: This wasn’t you normal battle royal, every body except really Oliver Grey and Curt Hawkins, had their time to shine. We even got to see more from superstars like Jason Jordan, Baron Corbin and Yoshi Tatsu! The highlight of the match was the ending though! I was not expecting to see Three Men eliminated at the same time. Right after it happened the NXT Universe began to chant “Triple Threat” While all three superstars argued. We see the elimination played back in slow-mo and in reality Tyler Breeze one, his feet were the last to touch. I know it and even the NXT Universe knew it went they began to chant his name. Despite how easy is was to see the refs could not, and this actually led to a bit a bit of a mini brawl between Kidd and Zayn of all people! The Universe began to chant for JBL, but instead The COO of the WWE came down and Triple asked the crowd what they should do about this situation, they began to chant Triple Threat again and Triple H says the know whats best for business and next week Tyson Kidd, Sami Zayn and Tyler Breeze will fight in a Triple Threat Match for the Number One Contendership for Adrian Neville’s NXT World Championship!

Superstar of the Night – Alexa Bliss

I was originally going to give this to whoever one the battle royal, but no one won. Than I though about giving it to Charlotte since she moved on and his the favorite to win the NXT Womens Championship Tourney, or maybe Kalisto who won his debut match tonight, but Alexa did both. Just like Charlotte she moves on to Round Two and just like Kalisto she won her debut match as well, but unlike both Kalisto and Charlotte she beat a former WWE Divas Champion in Alicia Fox! Alexa Bliss certainly is very attractive, and I’m excited to see more from her, and I feel she has a great future here in the WWE and maybe even NXT!

WWE NXT |4-24-14| For the Good of NXT?

Hello my friends and welcome to my review of April 24th’s edition of NXT! Tonight on NXT The NXT General Manger, John “Bradshaw” Layfield has an announcement regarding Paige’s NXT Womens Championship! Also the advertised main event of the night is WWE Tag Team Champions, The Usos teaming up with Sami Zayn to take on Corey Graves on The NXT Tag Team Champions, The Ascension in a Six Man Tag Match!

Backstage Segment with JBL and Paige (c)

JBL tells Paige he needs to talk to her about something. He takes notice of both the NXT Womens Championship and the WWE Divas Championship on Paige’s shoulder and says that’s a good problem to have, but sadly he has bad news. With Paige defending the Divas championship all over the world on Raw and Smackdown its not fair to NXT for her to be carrying the NXT title around. Paige at first declines and expresses that he is not going to take away what he has fought so hard for, Bradshaw goes on to explain he has set up a tournament to determine the next Womens Champ and expresses they have big shoes to fill, Paige reluctantly hands over the belt and says let the games begin. The honestly does not make sense to me, we have seen WWE Divas like Natalya and Summer Rae challenge for the NXT Womens Championship, what would of happened if they won? Would the strip them of it right away? I guess WWE want it to seem like Paige is unbeatable, but I would of preferred her take the loss and give another Diva a rub!

Alexander Rusev W/Lana vs. Travis Tyler

Lana comes out and hypes of Rusev in Russian, and than Rusev made his way to the ring, while Travis Tyler awaits him. Tyler got off and early dropkick, but that was about it! Rusev dominated Tyler with many hard hitting strikes and numerous slams, all while the crowd chanted many things starting with Adam Rose’s theme song and even The Iron Shiek while Rusev locked in The Accolade to pick him up the victory.

Winner – Alexander Rusev

Rating – 5\10: Just another typical jobber match we have grown accustomed so seeing. Rusev is now dominating WWE talent so it makes sense the Travis Tyler wouldn’t put up a fight. The WWE really wants to get Rusev over and its smart to show him off as much as they can on house shows and NXT. The crowd seemed kind of iffy on Rusev tonight. They didn’t to be to into the match, probably because they already knew the out come, but the USA chant towards the end shows Rusev is getting over, and WWE is accomplishing their mission

Backstage Interview W/ Adam Rose

Devin Taylor is standing by awaiting the arrival of Adam Rose as a party ensues behind her, Adam is carried in by four big guys, he shhs the party as he talks to Devin about Camacho and the comments he made toward Adam. Adam responds by calling Camacho at Party Pooper and says he is boring and even goes on to challenge Camacho and ends it off by telling him to not be a Lemon, but a Rose Bud!

The BFFs (Charlotte & Sasha Banks) vs. Emma & ???

Charlotte and Sasha make their way down to the ring, and next out is Emma, and than we await for her Mystery Tag Partner while we go to commercial, and after the commercial break, the match has already started and we see Emma’s tag team partner is The WWE Divas Champion and Now the Former NXT Divas Champion, Paige. Charlotte looked good tonight as she took it to both Paige and Emma here, Sasha also got some of her moves in, but honestly we did not get to see much from Emma or Paige. Charlotte locked in a Scissor Lock on Emma, as she wrapped her legs around Emma’s throat. Emma fought hard to get out and avoid a elbow drop from Charlotte, both Charlotte and Emma made a tag to their partners, and Paige began to take it to Sasha, and it looked like Paige was getting read to lock in her Scorpion Crosslock, but Charlotte rushed in a drop kicked the back of Paige’s leg while avoiding and tossing Emma to the outside of the ring. Sasha tagged in Charlotte and The Dirtiest Diva in the Game ran and hit Paige with the Front Flip DDT and covered The Divas Champion for the three!

Winners – The BFFs (Charlotte & Sasha Banks)

Rating – 6\10: It was kind of strange how we did not get to see Paige’ entrance. I was honestly surprised to see her, I thought Emma’s partner was going to be Baylee, Charlotte looked good her tonight as she took it to two of the WWE’s Main Roster Divas! I know who won’t be getting the Superstar of the Night Award tonight, Paige! Paige not only gave up her NXT Women’s Championship here tonight, but was pinned cleanly tonight by Charlotte. It would appear The Daughter of The Nature Boy is destined to become the NXT Womens Champion, and a victory over the current WWE Divas Champion and former NXT Womens Champion, makes her the heavy favorite to win the upcoming NXT Womens Championship Tournament 

Tyson Kidd vs. Mason Ryan

Before this match, it was announced Tyson would be in action next, but I was not expecting his opponent to be Mason Ryan! Ryan has been building up quite an impressive list of victories in NXT, but Tyson Kidd has to be Mason’s toughest challenge yet. Mason dominated Kidd early on with his strength and counter Tyson every step of the way, but Kidd came back with his speed and high flying ability! Thew two went back in forth, but as the commentators pointed out Mason allowed Tyson to catch his breath and it came back to haunt him when Kidd moved out of the way and Ryan went chest first into the turnbuckle, Tyson climbed to the top of the turnbuckle and hit Ryan with a Front Flip Neck breaker for the three.

Winner – Tyson Kidd

Rating – 5\10: These two put on a decent match, but it wasn’t great! The mix between Ryan’s strength and Tyson’s speed made this match entertaining, as it was cool to see Tyson try to use his speed against Ryan, but Mason just countering him every step of the way. Renee Young joined Tyson on the entrance way and congratulated Tyson on the win and said it was great to have him back. Tyson hyped NXT and said with some many eyes on NXT ever since the launch of the WWE Network, NXT has had more eyes on it than ever before, and expresses that this is the re birth of Tyson Kidd! So it would seem like Kidd is going to use NXT to gain some popularity, and its not a bad idea we have seen Brodus Clay do it, so i’m excited for Tyson because he is a great talent and is sure to put on some great matches on NXT!

Angelo Dawkins vs. Tyler Breeze 

This is the first time were getting a look at Angelo Dawkins, he has very generic theme music but he does have this interesting skater look to him, but out next is Prince Pretty, Tyler Breeze! Before the match starts we hear the crowd chanting Breeze is gorgeous! Dawkins get the early control on Breeze taking him down with the most basic of slams. Breeze made his way to the ropes witch forced Dawkins to let go, and Breeze his a cheap shot and led the rest of the match with numerous hard hitting strikes, along with a very long headlock. Breeze kept it entertaining though as he screamed “Don’t touch me” to Dawkins every time he touched him. Breeze than forced Dawkins up to his feet before hitting him with The Beauty Shot for the win!

Winner – Tyler Breeze

Rating – 4\10: Not really a good match here, it was honestly the most basic of matches possible. We saw beginner slams from Dawkins, some punches from Breeze along with a headlock and The Beauty Shot. I know Tyler has more in him, but it seems he is on the beat jobber path right now as it would seem like creative has nothing for him to do. I don’t know if Dawkins is still green or not, but I would like to see more from him to be honest, because his look really caught my eye!

Brodus Clay Highlight 

We are shown the match from last week between Clay and NXT World Champion, Adrian Neville, it would appear backstage Brodus Clay attacked Adrian Neville backstage and Neville actually lost teeth. I don’t know if he had fake teeth there, but there were teeth on the ground and Neville was missing theme, than again now that I think about it he wasn’t bleeding, so maybe he really is missing his teeth there or just has fake ones, but either way Brodus was made to look like a threat, even though he suffered a loss to Neville!

Corey Graves & The Ascension (c) (Konner O’Brian & Rick Viktor) vs. Sami Zayn & The Usos (c) (Jimmy & Jey Uso)

It is now time for our main event out first was Corey Graves and he was followed by the NXT Tag Team Champions, The Ascension, and than their opponents, first was Sami Zayn and than the WWE Tag Team Champion, The Usos! We start off with One of the Usos along with Rick Viktor! The two traded blows, but it was The Uso who got the advantage on Viktor, until Graves tagged himself in. Zayn begged to get in the match, and The Uso tagged him in, but Graves avoided Zayn and tagged on Konner. Konner dominated Zayn, before Graves once again tagged himself in. Zayn began to take it to Graves and eventually tagged in Jey Uso. Jey was taking it to Graves, but Corey was able to land a shoulder block to the leg of Uso and tagged in Konner, and both Konner and Viktor traded tags as the took turns beating down on Jey. Jey Uso had many close calls to tag in his partners, but The Ascension and Corey Graves made it priority to keep Jey in. Jey did however finally make the tag to his brother Jimmy after quickly crawling through the legs of Viktor, and things began to look good for the Usos and Zayn. Graves eventually got the tag and this is where things began to heat up and Sami was able to tag himself in without Graves noticing and caught Corey off guard with a huge Cross Body and almost picked up the victory, he than went for the running boot into the turnbuckle, but Graves managed to move out of the way but he couldn’t rest for long as Zayn hit an impressive power bomb on Graves and almost picked up the victory but Te Ascension rushed in and broke up the pin. One of The Usos and Zayn took The Ascension out of the equation and Zayn ran at Corey and hit him with The Big Boot in the Turnbuckle, One of the Usos tagged himself in while Zayn and the Other Uso jumped over the ropes to the outside to take out The Ascension while The Legal Uso in the ring hit Corey Graves with The Splash from the top rope to pick up the win!

Winner – The Usos (c) & Sami Zayn

Rating – 7\10: I’ve been saying for weeks I want to see The Ascension get challenged and finally a challenge is put before them. Not only did they have to take on the impressive Sami Zayn, but also took on The Current WWE Tag Team Champions, Jimmy & Jey Uso! It was hard hitting and back and forth. Both teams had their chance to shine, and we may have gotten a preview of a future rivalry over the WWE Tag Titles between The Usos and The Ascension! It’s not often The Tag Champs taste to defeat so it will be interesting to see how they respond to that! On the other side, the rivalry between Sami Zayn and Corey Graves has yet another chapter added to it, as Zayn was able to get some well deserve revenge on Corey Graves!

Superstar of the Night – Tyson Kidd

Tonight NXT didn’t really have much of a pop! The only real big announcement is that Paige is no longer the NXT Womens Champion, but tonight we may have seen a new beginning for Tyson Kidd. Kidd has all the talent in the world and it deserves to be shown, and with NXT be more of a wrestling based show over Raw and Smackdown, this is the perfect place of Kidd. Tonight he picked up an impressive victory of Mason Ryan who is no easy match up. Hopefully Kidd NXT is the platform that finally shows The WWE Universe how good Tyson really is!

WWE NXT 3-13-14 – Do You BO-Leive?

Hello everyone and welcome to my review of March 3rds edition of WWE NXT! Tonight’s highlighted match is Xavier Woods vs. Alexander Rusev, as Woods looks to gain his revenge on Rusev after his attack on him at NXT: Arrival!

Paige (c) vs. Sasha Banks w/ Charlotte

Last week we saw The Dirtiest Diva in the Game (Still not sure if that’s the best nickname for her..) Charlotte take on Emma and defeat her. Now Charlotte’s BFF Sasha Banks takes on The NXT Womens Champion, Paige! An interesting note here, apparently WWE now sells NXT T-Shirts, They said The Ascension, Paige and Bo Dallas all have a Shirt, and one last thing I would like to point out is Tensai is no longer Tensai, apparently he now goes by the name of Jason Albert, but anyway onto the match! Sasha Banks is still pretty green, but for some reason she still looks good in the ring! She knows her limit, she stays to what she knows, and I think its brilliant! Sasha is able to keep Paige down for the majority of the match with some basic holds, but Paige was able to get back into it after hitting a couple of stiff clotheslines and following up with her new submission hold The Modified Scorpion Crosslock to force Sasha to tap out!

Winner – Paige (c)

Rating – 5\10: A simple match here, that showed Sasha’s better moveset, and hid her flaws. Paige is excellent as always and really sold Sasha here tonight as a threat! an after match beat down by Charlotte further proves that she will be the next challenger for Paige’s Womens Championship, but a surprise save by WWE Diva Natalya, suggest that we may have a Triple Threat for the Womens Title, witch would be an excellent way to go to get the belt on Charlotte and hiding her flaws in the ring as well! 

Backstage Exclusive with Sami Zayn!

Corey Graves is heavily highlighted in this short video package from last week. We see how excellent Graves is a heel and it seems like this rivalry between Zayn and Graves is going to be a main highlight on NXT and I’m excited! Afterwards we are shown a Backstage Exclusive with Sami Zayn from last week, and I have to say this was honestly kind of bad. Zayn talked about his match with Graves, and honestly just kept repeating himself over and over and over again. I know he can do better than this!

Mojo Rawley Segment

We are shown a short picture slideshow of Mojo Rawley’s match on NXT Arrival, honestly was kind of dumb, but than we get to see a nice promo down by Mojo Rawley as we see him Hyping himself up in the back. So I’m excited to see Mojo in action tonight!

The Ascension (c) (Konnor O’Brian  & Rick Viktor ) vs. Travis Tyler & Cal Bishop

The NXT Tag Champs come out to a new chant of YAH! I gotta say I love The Ascension’s new T-Shirts! The only thing that saddens me about The NXT Champions, is that they have no real challengers! I don’t believe there are any other tag teams in NXT right now, so its unfortunate that we have to see them face Jobbers every single week. Another thing I would like to point out is I have been misspelling The Tag Champs names wrong Its Konnor with a K not a C and Viktor with a K and not a C, so my apologies! Anyway the match was hard hitting Travis Tyler sure took a beating from the Tag Champs! It was pretty cool to see Cal Bishop actually get the upper hand on Viktor, but it was short lived as Viktor got back on Bishop. Bishop made a quick tag out as Konnor rushed in a pulled Tyler in! The Ascension hit a gnarly move on Tyler they called The Guillotine, which is basically A whip into a high knee, after that The Ascension followed up with The Fall of Man to pick up yet another win!

Winners – The Ascension (c)

Rating – 7\10: The Ascension is a kick ass team! They are hard hitting and I would love to see them in the ring with The Usos or The Rhodes Brothers on WWE TV! I really wish NXT had more Tag Teams though, because as great as The Ascension is, I wanna see them challenged!

Mason Ryan vs. Wesley Blake

I remember Wesley Blake! So it would appear that “A Real Cowboy” Wesley Blake is NXT’s resident jobber, s he takes on the massive Mason Ryan! but I do have to admit, I did not have high expectations for this match, but it actually surprised me! Wesley actually started to fight back, and honestly made it feel like this match could be his for the winning! Blake even got a one count of Ryan, and it may not sound like a big deal, but trust me for a jobber its a pretty big deal when you look good in a match! but Ryan did kick out and power up and hit some well placed punches before he picked him up and slammed him down for the three count!

Winner – Mason Ryan

Rating – 6\10: For a match that I thought was going to be quick and bad, it actually turned out to be great. Mason was pretty green last time I remember, but seems like he keeps getting better in the ring, and Blake did surprise me here as well. Well done for both men!

Bayley interview

Devin Taylor is backstage to interview Bayley about the WWE Network! Bayley geeks out over the network and goes on to nerd out over her friend ship with Natalya and getting to meet WWE Hall of Famer Bret “Hit Man” Hart! Than Charlotte and Sasha Banks show up and begin to make fun of Bayley, but Bayley quickly grabs the Puppet Summer Rae and makes fun of Sasha Banks and says she can beat her in  a match! Charlotte begins to make fun of Bret Hart, before Natalya comes in and begins to pick fun at Charlotte’s father The Nature Boy Ric Flair! I gotta say this was a well done promo that showed off all four Divas and definitely sets up some exciting matches between a Second and Third Generation Diva!

Xavier Woods vs. Alexander Rusev w/ Lana

Woods comes down to the ring, but this time he comes down with a more serious attitude as he looks for revenge against Alexander Rusev! before Rusev can even come out Tyler Breeze’s music plays as he comes down to the ring and says he knows that Woods and himself don’t get along but he has a bone to pick with Rusev too, so he kindly ask Xavier to leave. The two argue for a bit, before Lana comes out and introduces The Bulgarian Brute Alexander Rusev. As Rusev makes his way down to the ring, Breeze attacks Woods from behind and leave him there for Rusev to finish. It takes a little while, but finally the bell is rang and the beat down begins, as Rusev takes in to Woods. Xavier did get in a little offense as it looked like he was going to take Rusev down, but Rusev was able to get back in control, as he lifted Woods up and slammed him into the canvas before locking in The Accolade to face Woods to Tap Out for the win!

Winner – Alexander Rusev

Rating – 6\10: Story Telling is what really added to the match, as we got to see a surprise appearance from Prince Pretty! and it suggest a rivalry between Woods and Breeze and possible Rusev also, but i don’t expect Rusev to waste his time with Woods and Breeze when eh should be main eventing NXT! I for one cannot wait for Rusev to debut on the main roster, and I believe with all the fighting Rusev and Woods have been doing, that Xavier Woods will find himself the first man defeated in Rusev’s long streak of wins!

Adrian Neville (c) Interview

Devin Taylor is set to interview The NXT World Champion Adrian Neville, but before we can get started The former Champion Bo Dallas interrupts and states in two weeks his nightmare ends and he can get his NXT Championship back! He than goes on to say his BO-Leivers are sick on Neville and his face, and his Big Ears, and his Flips and than goes on to say that he is sick of him and says Neville is out of his league, The Champion slaps Bo in the face and the two have  a stare down as were told in Two weeks Bo Dallas will challenge Adrian Neville for the NXT World Championship! I gotta say I was a little bit worried about how Bo Dallas would be without the world title, but I gotta say so far I’m impressed!

Colin Cassady vs. Bo Dallas

Colin Cassady has a huge opportunity here as he takes on The Former NXT World Champion Bo Dallas! Bo is looking to build some momentum for his match against Adrian Neville for the NXT Championship in Two Weeks, but tonight he needs to get through Big Cass first. Early on in the match Colin Cassady had full control over the Former NXT Champ as he overpowered him and took him down many times, but after the commercial break Bo Dallas found a way to get back into the match and ground Cassady with a headlock! Dallas fought hard against Cass, but whatever he did he could not keep Cassady down. Colin eventually found his way back into the match and even hit a huge Big Boot onto Bo, but could not keep him down for a three count. Bo got the advantage over Cassady by poking him in the eye I believe and hitting a DDT on Cass for the three count

Winner – Bo Dallas

Rating- 7\10: Despite the fact that Colin Cassady lost here tonight, he still looked good in the ring, taking the longest reigning NXT Champion to the limit shows that you have the skill to be in the main event. I definitely feel Colin Cassady will be in the NXT Main Event Scene soon! But tonight was all about Bo Dallas gaining some much needed momentum heading into his match against Adrian Neville for the NXT Championship in Two Weeks, and a well fought victory over Colin Cassady definitely gained him some of that momentum! 

Superstar of the Night – Charlotte

I may get a little gripe for this one, but I feel she deserves it! Even though she did not compete tonight, she was the highlight of the NXT Womens Division here tonight! Her after match beat down on the NXT Womens Champion Paige officially started her chase for the title, as tension between herself and Bayley grows and even a new rivalry against fellow generation Diva Natalya defiantly puts the Daughter of The Nature Boy in the highlight of the NXT Womens Division for awhile!
