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

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

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

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

Winner – Colin Cassady

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

Backstage Interview W/ Adrian Neville (c)

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

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

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

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

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

Backstage Interview W/Justin Gabriel

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

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

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

CJ Parker vs. Steve Cutler

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

Winner – CJ Parker

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

Renee Young Interview W/ Tyson Kidd

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

Sami Zayn vs. Justin Gabriel W/Tyson Kidd

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

Winner Sami Zayn

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

Superstar of the Night – Tyson Kidd

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

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

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

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

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

Winners – The Vaudevillians

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

Sami Zayn Backstage Exclusive.

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

Xavier Woods vs. Bull Dempsey

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

Winner – Bull Dempsey

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

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

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

Winner – Becky Lynch

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

Colin Cassady vs. Sawyer Fulton

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

Winner – Colin Cassady

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

Adrian Neville (c) vs. Rob Van Dam

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

Winner – Adrian Neville (c)

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

Superstar of the Night – Adrian Neville!

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

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!

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.

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

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.

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!

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!
