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 |6-19-14| Tyson Pulls the Trigger!

Hello my friends, and welcome to my review of this week’s edition of NXT! Tonight, after losing his second opportunity at the NXT Championship, what does the future hold for Tyson Kidd.

Natalya & JBL Segment.

Before the show begins we are shown a video from backstage at Raw! Nattie explains to JBL that Tyson has had a bad week and he just needs something different. She tosses the idea of Kidd and Sami Zayn forming a tag team. JBL seems to like the idea and takes it into consideration.

Sasha Banks W/Summer Rae & Charlotte (c) vs. Alexa Bliss

Our first match of the night, is a  match that was announced last week. There was a bit of an altercation last week between The BBFs that led to Bliss challenging Sasha to a match. Banks makes her way to the ring first with both Summer Rae and the NXT Womens Champion, Charlotte following her. Out next is Bliss, nothing to important happened in either of the entrances, it was noted however by the commentators that The BFFs have been getting along as of late, a huge change from last week. The two stare each other down before the match begins, once the bell is rung the two divas begin to circle around each other. Banks makes the first move by shoving the face of Bliss. Bliss smiled it off, but Sasha get a headlock on Bliss only for a few moments before Alexa bounces Banks off. Sasha avoids Alexa’s move, but Bliss quickly gets back up to her feet and takes Banks down. Sasha quickly up the her feet, she tosses Bliss off the ropes and catches her but Ms. Bliss turns it around on Sasha and covers her for a short count of one. Bliss quickly got to her feet, but Bliss planted Banks as she got up, sending her into the turnbuckle. Bliss quickly runs at Banks and hits her with a monkey flip. She quickly ran at her as Banks got up, but she seemed to have tripped, allowing Sasha to pick her up and lock her in a headlock. The headlock did not last long though as Alexa broke out of it and hit Banks with a forearm, before bouncing off the ropes. Unfortunately for Bliss, Banks saw her coming and reversed her move into an impressive tilt a-whirl back breaker that only earned her a two count. Banks slaps Bliss around before locking her into a surfboard stretch that lasted quite awhile. Alexa Bliss hung in there though as Banks was forced to let go of the submission hold after Banks grabbed a handful of Bliss’s hair only letting go of the hold as the ref reached four in his five count. Summer and Charlotte begin to have problems on the outside of the ring. They began to argue and accuse each other for doing stuff, while Banks continued to dominate Bliss in the ring. Eventually the bickering on the outside of the ring caught Banks attention as she went to check on them. Banks distracted by her fellow BFFs, Bliss runs from behind and rolls her up for a three count!

Winner – Alexa Bliss

Grade – C, It was not long after the match ended the Summer Rae and The NXT Womens Champion, Charlotte began to get physical. Charlotte pushed Summer, Summer slapped Charlotte and The BFFs began to argue including Banks. It seems like the end is near for The Beautiful Fierce Females. As for Bliss, she earns a huge victory here tonight over Banks. I don’t see her getting a title shot soon, but for someone as new as her to only have one defeat on her record to the current NXT Womens Champion, is sure says a lot for the confidence in her. At times it seemed like Bliss or Banks messed up and it did feel a bit rushed, but it served its purpose. Add fuel to the fire of the feud between The BFFs. Originally it looked like it was going to be between Summer and Charlotte, but after tonight I feel, along with the NXT Crowd tonight that it’s time for a Triple Threat!

Tyson Kidd & Natalya Segment

Tyson is seen backstage prepping for his match later tonight. Natalya comes in to check on him. She expresses how excited she is, but it doesn’t take long for this to turn into an argument. Tyson and Nattie go back and forth about how Nattie cost Tyson his title match and how Tyson could of earned this shot on his own. The segment ends when Tyson says he needs to go find Zayn and go over stuff for their tag match later tonight. It was interesting to hear Tyson blame Nattie for his loss, and it seems that this relationship is suffering form Tyson’s failures as Nattie just tries to help!

Mojo Rawley vs.Garrett Dylan 

Before this match begins we are shown a video of Aiden English and the man he met last week. The video was shot in black and white and made to look like it was on a projector. The two talk in the way of the classics movie. The video was to hype up the new tag team of English and this new strange man. Mojo’s music begins to play, and the man who is always hype makes his way to the ring. Already in the ring is a man we have not seen before, his opponent Garrett Dylan! Mojo quickly takes the advantage as he locks Dylan in a headlock before taking him down with a hip toss while keeping the headlock in tact. Dylan briefly gets out of the move, but not for long as Mojo once again locks in the headlock. The two got to there feet, and Mojo backs Garrett up into the turnbuckle were he begins to slam Dylan with shoulder blocks. Dylan stumbles out of the turnbuckle, but Mojo backs him into another one and continues with the shoulder blocks. Dylan finally fights back as he takes out a running Mojo’s leg, sending him face first into the turnbuckle pad. Dylan continues to beat down on Rawley, lifting him up for for a back suplex. Garrett stomps on Mojo and chokes him on the bottom rope, than he bounces Mojo of the ropes and catches him in an abdominal stretch. Dylan punches at the ribs on Mojo, trying to get him to tap out, but Rawley fights out of it when he arm drags Dylan. The two struggle to get back to their feet, but once there both up they begin to exchange a few punches. Dylan backs off into a turnbuckle, Mojo takes advantage as he runs full force at Dylan hitting him with a splash while he was in the turnbuckle. Garrett Dylan stumbles out of the turnbuckle into the center of the ring as Mojo plants him with a rear end to the face before hitting Hyper Drive to pick up the win.

Winner – Mojo Rawley

Grade – C, Mojo continue to win, but still over talent no body knows, or no body cares about! His only real feud was between English, and even tough English put up more of a challenge than anyone else Mojo has faced, he was still made to look weak compared to him. Mojo is suffering the same fate as the tag champs right now, the only difference is The Ascension’s matches are a lot more entertaining than Mojo’s. I’m not sure what the WWE sees in him, but so does the NXT Universe because he is over with just about everyone but myself!

Tyson Kidd & Sami Zayn Segment

Sami Zayn meets up with Tyson backstage. Sami talks about how both he and Tyson have suffered huge losses as of late, but tonight is about the tag team championships! Tyson agrees and states that tonight is the restart. I’m excited for this match The hard hitting style of The Ascension meets the high flying style of Tyson Kidd and Sami Zayn!

The Vaudevillians (Aiden English & Simon Gotch) vs. Angelo Dawkins & Travis Tyler

Before our next match begins we see CJ Parker walking around the NXT Universe with his recycled sign. The screen turns black and white as Aiden English and Simon Gotch make their way out on opposite sides. English comes out with a mega phone and holds it up to his mouth as Gotch holds a microphone up to the megaphone. English introduces himself and Gotch as The Vaudevillians, some old time music plays over the loud speaker as the two make their way down to the ring. Already in the ring our their opponents Angelo Dawkins and Travis Tyler! Simon Gotch and Angelo Dawkins are in the ring first. Dawkins makes the first move as he takes Gotch down with a basic slam, but Simon turns it around while he is on the mat, locking Dawkins in a hammer lock and doing one arms push-ups on the back of Dawkins. Angelo gets up and quickly tags in Tyler. Travis Tyler goes right after Gotch, but Simon turns it around once again and locks Tyler in a headlock. He backs up into his corner where he tags in English and his an uppercut to the back of the head of Tyler while Aiden his him with a boot that only gives him a two count. English continues to beat down on Tyler, hitting him with an impressive leg drop and working on the wrist of his opponent before tagging Simon Gotch back in. Gotch and English work together, and Simon goes right back to working on the wrist and forearm of Travis using both his feet and hands! Tag is made again, and The Vaudevillians once again work together, as Simon hols Travis there while English lands a punch to the ribs of Tyler. English continues to dominate over Travis Tyler using his knees as weapons and constantly keeping Tyler locked in a headlock before making yet another tag to Simon Gotch. Gotch gets in while English holds Travis from behind, Simon lands a quick punch right to the gut and holds onto Tyler’s arm while he reaches out to his partner. While Tyler was reaching for Dawkins, Simon Gotch was doing squats, before he pulled Tyler back and tagged in English. Before getting out Simon Gotch hit Travis Tyler with a Kamikaze Roll, allowing English to climb to the top rope and hit a Senton Flip for the win!

Winners – The Vaudevillians

Grade – B-, The Vaudevillians making their debut here tonight as a team, and Simon Gotch as well making his debut on NXT. The dominated their opponents here tonight, specifically Travis Tyler, and the looked good doing it. I’ve been saying for quite a long time now that The Ascension needed some game opponents, and with new teams rising up including The Vaudevillians, I have a feeling the tag champs may be in trouble. My only gripe about this match is that it went on a little longer than it should, but other than that I love The Vaudevillians!

Backstage Interview W/ Colin Cassady

Devin Taylor is backstage ready to interview Big Cass. Devin talks about Colin’s victory over Sylvester Lefort last week. Colin comments on how this have been smooth sailing for him, but if could be better and he thinks its time it gets better. Colin ends the interview by singing us out. With recent talk during his matches about him and the NXT title, I can only assume that is what Big Cass is talking about here, and i couldn’t be more excited about it!

Backstage Interview W/ Rob Van Dam

Devin Taylor is backstage with RVD! She asks Van Dam what he plans on doing here as she welcomes him to the show. Van Dam expresses how great the talent is on NXT and claims he found the top dog in our NXT Champion Adrian Neville and expresses that he wants to challenge. What a huge opportunity for Neville as he has an opportunity to step in the ring with the legendary R V D!

Kalisto vs. Tyler Breeze

Kalisto makes his way down to the ring first to a huge crowd response. The crowd chanted “Lucha” at Kalisto as he made his way to the ring, out next is Prince Pretty himself, the number one contender to the NXT Championship Tyler Breeze! The Bell rings, and this match is under way! The two lock up, Breeze pushes Kalisto back into the turnbuckle but the two continue to counter each other for the next few seconds. Breeze, obviously frustrated with Kalisto screams at him “I’m the Number One Contender!” Once again they lock up, but this time Tyler manages to lock Kalisto in a head lock. Kalisto tries to get out of is by tossing Breeze off, but Tyler manages to hang on and keep Kalisto in the headlock while taking him down with a hip toss. Tyler covers him but only for a two, Breeze tries for another pin, but once again only a two count! Tyler continues to keep the headlock locked in, as Kalisto manages to get back to his feet and toss Breeze off again, but Tyler counters once again dropping down and keeping the headlock locked in still! Kalisto rolls Breeze over getting a quick pin of one, but once again Breeze get out and keeps the headlock locked in for awhile longer. Kalisto manages to get to his feet again and once again tried to toss Tyler over, but he hangs on, this time though Kalisto rolls backwards to get out of the hold and quickly jumps off the ropes to hit Breeze with a spinning crossbody. Kalisto bounces off the ropes, Breeze tried to trip him by sliding his body in front of him but Kalisto jumped over him and managed to catch Breeze’s head between his feet, before tossing him to the outside of the ring. Kalisto began to run against the ropes and looked like he was going to jump to the outside onto Breeze, but faked him out as we go to commercial break. Once we back, Tyler quickly gets back in control with a jawbreaker and than continued to stomp Kalisto into the turnbuckle. Breeze continues to control the match once again with a headlock. After holding him down for quite awhile, Kalisto fights back to his feet and eats a forearm from Breeze before connecting with a hurricarana  pin for only a two count. Tyler quickly gets two his feet and jumps at Kalisto hitting him with a straight punch to the head. Breeze begins to shower his opponent with fist while he lays on the ground, Tyler covers him for a pin of only 2. Frustrated Breeze continues to pin his opponent but Kalisto kicked out every time. Kalisto began to fight back but it was not long until Breeze once again took him down with a headlock. Breeze held on to the headlock and eventually got back to his feet, he ran Kalisto face first into the turnbuckle and went to cover him for the pin, but Kalisto managed to roll away from Breeze towards the outside apron. Breeze went after, but paid for hit when Kalisto kicked straight up into Breeze’s face!  Kalisto climbs to the top turnbuckle and lands a crossbody on Breeze. Unfortunately Kalisto could not capitalize and both men laid there as the ref began the count. We almost saw this match end, when the referee  reached the count of nine but both Breeze and Kalisto made it up to their feet. Kalisto lands a kick to Breeze’s leg and than continues by blocking Breeze’s punch and landing his own, both superstars are standing on wobbly legs, Breeze rolls Kalisto up, but Kalisto rolls out of the pin and than rolls over to Breeze to land a stiff kick to the face of the Number One Contender. Kalisto covers Breeze, but only for a count of two! Breeze gets up into the turnbuckle and Kalisto runs at him, Tyler counters by tossing Kalisto over the ropes, but Kalisto lands on the outside apron and climbed to the top of the turnbuckle. Breeze saw him and went running at him, but Kalisto dodged him using the top rope to cartwheel away from Breeze. Once again Tyler ran after Kalisto this time he ducked under Breeze’s clothesline and than hung onto the ropes continuing to catch Breeze off guard! Kalisto spring boarded off the ropes, but this time Tyler catches Kalisto off guard landing The Beauty Shot on him and covering him for the three.

Winner – Tyler Breeze

Grade – C, Not a good showing for either of these two today. Maybe I went in having high hopes, but this match really disappointed me. I’ve heard some really good things about Kalisto but have yet to see any of this, and I know Tyler is much better. I may be given this match to much criticism right now because at times this match was really good when the two actually fought! but what ruined this match the most is I felt like I just sat through a match that was 90% headlock and 10% wrestling. It just could of been much better. The Number One Contender continues riding the wave of momentum, as he in my honest opinion dominated Kalisto tonight with just a small hiccup at one point! I’ve heard that he has suffered an injury so I suspect he will be out of action for only a short time, but this could be a great time for him to WOW us with his mic skills. Probably the worst match I’ve seen of Tyler, but I’m still a fan, and I’m still excited for whats coming next!

NXT Tag Team Championship!

Tyson Kidd & Sami Zayn vs. The Ascension (c) (Konner O’Brian & Rick Viktor)

Before the entrances, it was officially announced that next week on NXT, RVD takes on the NXT World Champion Adrian Neville, and also it was announced that the Number One Contender, Tyler Breeze has left the building! Tyson Kidd makes his way to the ring first and Sami Zayn follows. Soon the NXT Tag Team Champions make their way to the ring and this title match is under way! Sami Zayn and Viktor start off the match, and Viktor takes the early control over Zayn hitting him with hard hitting strikes and eventually bouncing him chest first off the ropes and into his forearm. Viktor began to beat down on Zayn eventually striking Zayn into the turnbuckle. He continued the strikes before pulling Zayn out of the turnbuckle just to toss him right back in. Zayn bounced off the turnbuckle and he stumbled over to the middle of the ropes. Viktor once again bounced Zayn off the ropes chest first and striking him with his forearm. Viktor picked Zayn up and went to bounce him off the ropes again, but Sami used the ropes to springboard over Viktor’s shoulders, and takes him down with a dropkick. Zayn covers Viktor for a one count, he then gets Viktor in a headlock and tries to tag in Kidd, but Viktor lifts Zayn up onto his shoulders and runs him into his turnbuckle, where Konner tags himself in. Konner lands a stiff punch to the temple of Zayn, and than tosses him back into his turnbuckle and begins to shower Sami with stiff stomps. The fans Chat “YAH” every time Konner strikes him, and as he backs up the begin to chant “One More YAH!” Witch Konner gladly grants them! Viktor gets the tag back in and covers Zayn for only a two. Viktor quickly begins to strike Zayn once again, not allowing him to get back into the match at all! Viktor leads Zayn up against the ropes and lands a forearm right onto the jaw before striking him back into his corner where he makes the tag to Konner. Konner only briefly comes in and showers Zayn with more stomps to the gut before tagging Viktor back in. Zayn tries to get away and make a tag to Tyson, but Viktor grabs him! Zayn tries to get Viktor off him, landing elbows onto the side of Viktor’s skull, but Rick Viktor pulls Zayn back by his tights and hits him with an impressive spine buster. The two battle some more, and eventually the camera pans over to Tyson Kidd as it seems he is leaving telling Zayn “If you want to fight the whole match, than fight the whole match.” Zayn and Viktor continue to battle inside the ring. Viktor gains control and tosses Zayn into his corner while looking over at Tyson. Sami ran at Konner and hit him with a forearm and than put his boots up to catch Viktor. Sami climbed to the top of the turnbuckle and landed and flying crossbody onto Rick Viktor. Zayn reaches for the tag to Tyson Kidd, but notices he isn’t there. Sami get into his corner and him and Tyson begin to exchange words. Meanwhile Konner gets the tag in and starts to stare down Zayn in the opposite corner before running at him and hitting him with a monstrous splash as he catches Zayn off guard. Konner makes the tag back into Viktor and The Ascension measure Sami up and hit him with The Fall of Man! Viktor covers Sami for the win.

Winners & still NXT Tag Team Champions – The Ascension!

Grade – B, Not a bad match tonight, but it could of been so much better! The story line comes first here tonight though, as it would seem Tyson Kidd has officially turned Heel! as he abandoned his partner and left him high and dry to the Tag Team Champions! Konner and Viktor to my surprise continued the dominance. I had no doubt that they were going to win, but I thought we would of seen a more competitive match, but the entire match Sami Zayn just got beat down both The Tag Champs, and the second where the action could of picked up, Tyson Kidd was not there to make the tag! I don’t know for sure, but I think we may have a Tyson Kidd/Sami Zayn feud coming up soon! However The Ascension wins what shout of been a hard match, rather easily! and continues to reign over the NXT Tag Team Division!

Superstar of the Night – Tyson Kidd

Tyson Kidd, despite not winning the Tag Team Titles tonight, still ends up being the Superstar of the night. The show was built around him! We had several segments featuring him in some sort of way from the opening with Natalya and JBL to Kidd and Zayn getting pumped up for their title match, and than he made the main event match all about him, with out even stepping in the ring. Tyson Kidd made his Heel turn tonight when he abandoned Zayn and fed him to The Ascension. Kidd is becoming a big part of NXT, and with Tyler Breeze out for an injury, Tyson could fill his spot while he is gone, but than again, I’m sure Sami Zayn wants a little revenge on Tyson first!

NXT: Take Over! |5-29-14|Is Tyson Kidd just Natalya’s Husband?

Hello my friends and welcome to NXT Wrestling’s second special, Take Over! The past weeks have all been building up to this and we have some great Main events tonight! A new NXT Womens Champion will be crowned tonight as Natalya battles Charlotte, also Tyler Breeze and Sami Zayn battle over the number one contendership to the NXT title and in our main event Adrian Neville defends his NXT title against Tyson Kidd!

Adam Rose vs. Camacho

We start off the night with Adam Rose and his Exotic Express making their way to the ring from the outside of Full Sail University! It is honestly a brilliant idea to start off with Rose, since he can definitely get the crowd pumped up for the rest of the show! Camacho and Rose have been feuding for about two months now and it honestly has been a pretty decent feud! When I first began to review NXT, Camacho in my opinion was just a jobber, but recently he has been impressing me! These two had a match last week, and Camacho ended up walking out after Rose began to get back on the offense! Hopefully tonight, it does not end that way again! Rose started the match off with his usual games, avoiding any physical contact while making a fool out of his opponent! At one point Rose jumped into Camacho’s arms and just smiled at him until Camacho threw him down and started to bombard him with stomps to the chest. Camacho was not letting up in this match at all, as he heavily dominated the early portions of the match by hitting Rose with many strikes and even mocking the NXT Universe while hitting Rose with an impressive Underhook Suplex! Camacho continued with the stiff strikes, but he hit Rose one to many times and Adam began to power up like he usually does, but Camacho quickly shut that down with a Boot right to the skull of Adam Rose. Camacho locked in a basic headlock and tried to get Rose to pass out, but Adam found a rather interesting way to get out of the headlock. It wasn’t to long before The Party Pooper felt the wrath of Adam Rose! Rose began to hit many of his signature moves including Cho Cho, witch is kind of like a Bronco Buster, but just not with the extra stuff! Rose forced Camacho up and hit him with The Party Foul or Party Pooper(I’m not sure what the name is since the commentators called it both) and covered him for the three count!

Winner – Adam Rose

Rating – 6\10: The match was still a little short and I’m not to sure why! I believe both competitors can hold a longer match, but for what it was, it was still entertaining! Camacho really looked good here tonight as he not only got to show off his move set, but he was the dominate one through out the match! It was also entertaining to see him mock the crowd as well with remarks such as “Party Pooper This,” maybe not the most clever of come backs, but its a start! I fully expected Rose to win here tonight as he continues to win! The NXT Universe was really behind Rose here tonight, and that helps both superstars because it gained Camacho some much needed heat! Now if only Rose can get this reaction on Raw and Smackdown! I’m not sure if the feud between these two are over, but it would probably be for the best that these two find a new rival!

Sami Zayn Video Package

The commentators called this video “Sami Zayn’s Journey to NXT: Take Over.” The video highlighted his feud with Cesaro and there match at the last NXT Special, Arrival! He also talked about his opponent tonight, Tyler Breeze, stating that “He is not my kind of guy!” Zayn expresses that looks don’t matter and after tonight he will become the number one contender to the NXT Championship.

NXT Tag Team Championship

The Ascension (c) |Konner O’Brian & Rick Viktor| vs. Kalisto & El Local

I have been begging for weeks to see The Ascension have a fight! Despite how entertaining their matches tend to be, after awhile it gets boring watching the destroy every team they step into the ring with! Last week after The Ascension put away yet another tag team, El Local and Kalisto came out and challenged them for the tag titles tonight! Before either team made their entrance it was announced that Tyler Breeze is in the building! The Ascension is out first, and it is clear they are over with the NXT Universe as they chant “Ya Ya Ya” at them! Out next are the challengers and to my surprise they did garner some cheers! The crowd seems to be split between the two teams as half chant “Ya” and the other half chant “Lucha Lucha.” Before the match can even begin The tag champs rush at their challengers and begin to beat down on them! Konner and Viktor than bounced Local and Kalisto off the ropes in unison, but both the challengers counter into a head scissors sending both the champions outside of the ring! Viktor and Konner began to power up as Kalisto and Local looked to do an outside dive onto the champs, but they ran right into stiff uppercuts from both the champs! The match finally begins with Kalisto and Viktor in the ring, and things did not look good for Kalisto! Both Konner and Viktor took turns tagging each other in to beat down on Kalisto! After awhile Viktor tossed Kalisto out of the ring and tagged in Konner! O’Brian than began to show off his strength as he grabbed Kalisto by the throat and tosses him into the ropes surrounding the ring! O’Brian went to do it one more time, but Kalisto caught himself and kicked Konner off of him and manged to catch Viktor’s head between his legs and slammed him face first into the apron! Kalisto hurried to tag in his partner, but Konner rushed back into the ring and beat down onto Kalisto until he tagged Viktor! Viktor continued to dish out damage until Kalisto managed to get away and tag in El Local! Local came running in and used his Lucha skills to catch Viktor off guard and after hitting an impressive moonsault he covered Viktor! Konner quickly rushed into the ring to break up the pin, but he paid for it as Kalisto rolled him up and landed a stiff kick onto the neck of Konner! Viktor tossed Kalisto out of the ring, while Local climbed to the top of the turnbuckle and jumped over Viktor, but Viktor quickly turned around and hit Local with a hard clothesline! Viktor and O’Brian took their places in the opposite corners and began to scream before hitting El Local with The Fall of Man to retain their titles!

Winner & Still NXT Tag Team Champions – The Ascension

Rating – 6\10: I was really hoping to see The Ascension challenged tonight, and even though Kalisto and El Local put on a better performance than most, they were still dominated, especially Kalisto! Kalisto took majority of the damage and this match and in my honest opinion, that’s a huge mistake! I hate to say it but El Local is not going anywhere in the future, his name screams enhancement talent, but Kalisto looked promising, up until tonight! Tonight he looked like a rag doll to The Ascension! Either way The Ascension retains their titles and still look to be untouchable!

Tyler Breeze Video Package

Similar to Sami Zayn, we are shown a video package featuring his opponent tonight! We are shown how impressive Tyler Breeze has been as of late as he talks about his looks and how we have not seen everything he has to offer! When talking about Sami Zayn he calls him a loser and calls himself a success! He ends the video by saying he will become the number one contender tonight and he will when the NXT Championship and than NXT can have a champ who is…gorgeous!

Number One Contendership to the NXT Championship!

Sami Zayn vs. Tyler Breeze

It is now time to find how who will be the number one contender for either Adrian Neville’s or Tyson Kidd’s NXT championship! I’ll be honest I think I’m looking forward to this match the most! First out is Sami Zayn coming out to some new music, and I have to be honest! I hate his new theme! It honestly sounds like a Diva’s theme and the way he was dancing down to the ring, just doesn’t feel like Sami Zayn! I wasn’t that big of a Sami Zayn fan to begin with, but this just make me dislike him even more! Out next is Tyler Breeze who is also out to a new theme, and it is so much better than Zayn’s! I wasn’t to sure how I was going to feel about it since I was a big fan of Breeze’s old theme, but once I heard Breeze’s voice singing the song, it won me over. It reminded me a lot of Shawn Micheals who played a gimmick very similar to Breeze’s! I wonder if that is what WWE was going for. I want to apologize ahead of time, because I know I missed some parts of this match due to the WWE Streaming problem! The match began with these two being very careful as the circled each other and waited for the right move. Zayn got the first move in and we got to see some good old classic chain wrestling between these two! but it wasn’t to long until Zayn gained control over the match! At one point we saw Zayn do a Front Flip  onto Breeze on the outside of the ring! He quickly tossed him back in and connected with an impressive flying crossbody from the top rope! These two went back and forth throughout the entire match! We saw Zayn hit some impressive moves that I’ve honestly never seen before! Breeze dished out his own damage as well! We saw Tyler hit some heavy strikes and target Zayn’s neck! but Sami Zayn was really impressive here! There was a point towards the end when Zayn did a Springboard Moonsault onto to Breeze on the outside of the ring. It looked like Breeze really hit his head hard against the steel! Zayn was fired about and was looking for that Running Boot into the turnbuckle, but Breeze ducked out of the way and put his hands up to protect himself! Unfortunately for Zayn he ran right into Breeze hands and got struck right into the man parts! The ref questioned Breeze and Breeze simply stated he was protecting himself, and that is what it looked like to me! Tyler Breeze took full advantage of the opportunity though to hit Zayn with The Beauty Shot to pick up the win!

Winner & Number One Contender for the NXT Championship – Tyler Breeze

Rating – 8/10: These two put on a fantastic match here tonight! Whenever Zayn is in the ring I honestly expect a great match, and tonight he did not disappoint! These two went back and forth and showed just how resilient both can be! Zayn pulled out some impressive moves here tonight, especially this one move that looked to be a suplex but turned into a power bomb! They told a story in the ring, and it showed just how bad both these men wanted it! A low blow did mange to aid Breeze for the victory, but it honestly didn’t look intentional to me. If you have the WWE Network, I suggest you watch this match! and if you don’t have the WWE Network, than I just have one question for you, Why? Tonight Sami Zayn and Tyler Breeze put on one hell of a match and I feel this is not the last time we will see them face off and I certainly hope its not the last time!

Rusev Segment

The Ravishing Russian, Lana comes down to the ring and does not take long to introduce the Super Athlete, Rusev! They make their way down to the ring and Lane begins to cut a promo about Russian and makes sure to bring up Vladimir Putin! It wasn’t to long before Mojo Rawley came out to a new and much better entrance theme! Mojo begins to promote The United States of America and tells Lana and Rusev that here and America we Stay Hype and than goes on to tell Rusev that he is going to come down there and stick The Russian Flag of his Putin! A Nice play on words there by Mojo, but the second he gets into the ring Rusev hits him with a superkick and follows up with a huge splash into the turnbuckle and ends it with The Accolade! After Lana instructs him to let go, he tosses Rawley outside of the ring! After Lana and Rusev pose for a bit in the ring she sends Rusev after Rawley again and this time he locks The Accolade on him again on the entrance way! I’ll admit I got a little excited about a clash between Rusev and Rawley, but after seeing how fast Rusev put away Mojo it may not be the best idea! but something tells me that the man who stays Hype won’t let that slide easily!

NXT Womens Championship!

Natalya W/Bret Hart vs. Charlotte W/Ric Flair

Before this match begins we are shown a well put together video package for this match that highlights both Divas wins to get here and even the family history between these two! Before either competitor can make their way to the ring The former NXT Womens Champion and current WWE Divas Champion, Paige makes her way to the ring! Paige gets into the ring and grabs a mic, she takes this time to thank every body in the NXT Universe and goes on to put over the NXT Womens Championship! She list what it takes to hold the NXT Womens Championship and even states that it holds the key to the future! I’ll admit it does feel a little weird how Paige, who is the youngest Diva on the roster is telling both Charlotte and Nattie how to be successful, but whatever! Out first is Charlotte who comes out to a new theme, that mixes Ric Flair’s theme with some generic rock music, kind of like Curtis Axel’s theme. The Nature Boy makes his way down to the ring with his daughter and I’ve got to say having both Flair and The Hit Man accompany their family to the ring makes this match feel more important than it did before! Out next is Natalya of course being accompanied to the ring by her Uncle Bret Hart! The two divas size each other up, but its not to long until Natalya takes over! Charlotte tried to escape Nattie many times, but Natalya countered every time and made sure she kept Charlotte in her grasps! Nattie was definitely looking to make Charlotte tap out, as she locked in many submission moves and hit Charlotte with many strikes, but The Daughter of The Nature Boy manged to get back into the match and turn things around in her favor! Charlotte used her legs to her advantage, something you don’t see many people do! At one point in the match it looked like Nattie hurt her knee after Charlotte twisted her leg to pull/slam her down onto the outside of the ring! Once the two were back in the ring, it was not long until Natalya was able to lock The Sharpshooter onto Charlotte! It looked like The Dirtiest Diva in the Game was about to tap out, but her leg strength came to the rescue when she managed not only get out of The Sharpshooter but to reverse it into The Figure Four Leg Lock as well! The two divas rolled around the ring turning the Leg Lock around on each other many times! The two rolled towards the apron, where Charlotte pulled herself out of the ring while still holding the submission hold despite Natalya being against the ropes! The ref forced Charlotte to let go, but the damage was done, but to add further pain to her knee, she slammed Nattie’s knee right into the steel steps. Charlotte tossed Natalya back into the ring and locked in The Sharpshooter! It appeared that Natalya was going to submit to her own move, but she got out of it the same way Charlotte did and attempted to lock in her Sharpshooter, but Charlotte kicked her up and rushed to hit Bow Down to the Queen to win the Womens Championship!

Winner & New NXT Womens Champion – Charlotte

Rating – 8\10: These two women went out there and put on one hell of a match! It was back and forth and similar to Zayn vs. Breeze earlier, these two told a story! The family rivalry between these two was the main focus and having both Ric Flair and Bret Hart out there added to it! This can be a feud WWE picks up later when Charlotte makes her way to the main roster! The after match was really special but also confusing! We saw Nattie, Charlotte, Flair and Bret celebrate in the ring and shake each others hands and it was honestly a feel good moment, but what confuses me is what Charlotte is now? Building up to this match Charlotte was portrayed as a heel and now it feels like she is a face, so I don’t know what group she falls under now! Either way Charlotte captures her first title in NXT and becomes only the second diva to hold the NXT Womens Championship! 

NXT Championship!

Tyson Kidd vs. Adrian Neville (c)

Before the match begins, we are shown a video package hyping Adrian Neville! We see him win the title from Bo and defend it against Bo Dallas and Brodus Clay! Neville puts over the facing Bo is different than facing Clay he than goes on to say that him and Kidd are very alike, but he states that he is faster, stronger and more hungry than Kidd! Neville ends the video by stating the NXT Championship is his armor and no one is getting through it! Than we see Tyson getting ready backstage, when his wife Natalya comes up and gives him a hug and kiss and tells him she loves him before Tyson makes his way out to the ring. Tyson makes his way to the ring very quickly and serious! Out next is the NXT World Champion, Adrian Neville! Neville makes his way to the ring the same way he usually does, and after the introductions are done, the match is on! Tyson took advantage early on, reversing everything Neville threw at him and turning it into his own move! This was the theme throughout the majority of this match as Tyson controlled most of the match and whenever Neville tried to get back into control, Tyson quickly turned it into his favor! Tyson brought his A game tonight hitting an impressive Suicide Dive onto Neville and even reversing all of Adrian’s momentum as he his a Russian Leg Sweep on the second rope! Neville did get his own moves in as well, but it felt that every time he got back into the match, Tyson turned it around into his favor! Towards the end of the match Tyson climbed to the top rope and had to fight Neville off him many times, but Neville would not give up as he rushed Tyson one last time and hit a Belly to Belly Suplex from the top rope sending Tyson across the ring! Neville saw his opportunity and climbed to the top of the rope and hit The Red Arrow to pin Tyson for the three!

Winner & Still NXT Champion – Adrian Neville

Rating – 9/10: These two went out there and had one hell of a match! They really made the NXT Championship feel special here tonight! If I was a a casual fan I would think the NXT title was more important than most of the titles on WWE’s main roster, because these two men went to war tonight. Tyson looked great in the ring and honestly looked superior to the NXT Champion! Neville’s resiliency is nothing to laugh at, as you saw here tonight! No matter what Tyson hit him with, The Champ continued to kick out! After the match was over Neville extended his hand to Tyson and thanked him for a great match, but Tyson wanted nothing to do with the champ and simply walked away! I don’t know what is next for Tyson Kidd, but for Adrian Neville, its Prince Pretty himself, Tyler Breeze!

Superstar of the Night – Tyler Breeze

Tonight, despite the fact how Charlotte won her first championship, despite the fact how Adrian Neville retained his title, the one person I keep thinking about is Tyler Breeze! Breeze went in there tonight and showed there is more to him than meets the eye! He had the best match of his career tonight against Sami Zayn and he even won! Beating Sami Zayn is pretty impressive, given how popular he is! but not only did Breeze defeat Sami Zayn, but he became the Number One Contender for the NXT Championship! It is very possible that Breeze could accomplish his goal and become the face of NXT!
