WWE NXT |7-17-14|”I’m looking to Embarrass him!”

Hello my friends and welcome to my review of this weeks edition of NXT! Tonight’s advertised Main Event is a revenge match between Tyson Kidd and Sami Zayn!

Enzo Amore & Colin Cassady vs. The Vaudevillians (Aiden English & Simon Gotch)

Amore’s music starts off the show as both Enzo and Colin Cassady make their way to the ring for some tag team action. It was brought up by the commentators that Enzo and Colin have not teamed with each other for over 8 months, because of Enzo’s leg injury at the time. Out next are their opponents Aiden English and Simon Gotch, The Vaudevillians! The have a new entrance this week, where a man comes out in their entrance video and introduces them. Once he calls their name the spotlight shines on that certain superstar revealing them from the dark. It honestly was really cool and something I suggest you look up yourself, because I probably did a terrible job of explaining it! Enzo Amore and Aiden English start off the match. The two were honestly back and forth, Aiden kept Enzo tried to keep Enzo under control with submission holds and basic slams, but Enzo is a, bit of a loose cannon, and when he begins to shoot there is no stopping him! The two went back and forth with strikes, English eventually lands one that sends Amore back into his corner and Colin Cassady makes the tag! Big Cass makes his way in the ring, and the commentators are quick to bring up the past between Aiden and Cass! Colin went right after Aiden with some heavy strikes, but as he lifted Aiden over his head, English managed to fall out and make the tag to Simon Gotch. Gotch ran at Big Cass full force, but Colin got his knee up and The Strong Man ran right into his knee! Colin Cassady continued to control Simon, until The Legionaries music hit and Sylvester Lefort and Marcus Louise make their way out. Simon Gotch rolls Colin up from behind off the distraction and grabs a handful of tight to grantee him the victory!

Winners – The Vaudevillians

Grade – B, This match could have been great. Out of all the tag teams, the two teams that are closest to The Ascension level are The Vaudevillians and The team of Enzo Amore & Colin Cassady! But it looks like we are going to have to wait for a real showdown between these two teams, and from what little we saw, it’s promising! Watching Enzo and Aiden going back and forth was entertaining, but the big pop of the match was when Simon Gotch came in and we got to see him and Big Cass battle for the first time. Cass kind of dominated him, and if it weren’t for the distraction maybe we could of seen Gotch make a comeback, but instead The Vaudevillians have no shame in cheating to win. It seems NXT wants us focusing on these three teams, and what I think would be cool is if we got to see all three of these teams fight over the right to challenge The Ascension for their Tag Team Titles!

The Ascension Video Promo

Immediately after the Tag match, a video promo of The NXT Tag Team Champions is shown. Konner briefly talks, but Viktor does majority of the talking. The two talk about how a lot of teams want the NXT Tag Team Champions, but no matter how good you are if you set your eye on their titles you will fail. Viktor ended the promo by stating “If You think you’re the Hunter than your mistaken, because when you face The Ascension, you are only The Hunted.”

The Demise of The Beautiful Fierce Females

We are shown a video that was titles by the commentators “The Demise of The BFF’s” The video started off by showing Charlotte’s win over Natalya that earned her, her first NXT Womens Championship! The video quickly turns to showing Summer Rae’s return and how it all went south from there. The video ended with Summer winning the Number One Contendership to Charlotte’s NXT Womens Championship and how it will be “The Summer of Summer” when she wins. Once the video ends it is announce next week on NXT Charlotte will defend her NXT Womens Championship against Summer Rae!

CJ Parker vs. Xavier Woods

CJ Parker makes his way to the ring first, and I’ll be the first one to admit that he has some catch theme music! Out next is WWE Main Roster superstar, Xavier Woods! These two have had a bit of a mini feud as of late. CJ basically wants Xavier’s spot and says if he was in his position that he would be doing a lot more than Xavier is! Woods took offense to that, and despite Parker’s apology last week Woods poked fun at CJ which resulted in Parker attacking him from behind! Woods overpowered CJ early on and maintained that control with high offensive attacks like the drop kicks and Leg Drops! Xavier dominated over Parker for a long time, turning Parker’s chest red with some nasty chops, but CJ managed to get back into the match as he sent Xavier face first into the bottom rope! Parker followed up with some stiff stomps and kept Woods grounded with a headlock. Xavier fought out of it and got himself back in the match and landed an impressive Over the Rope Spinning DDT! Woods covered CJ for the win, but Parker kicked out at two. Xavier surprised by the kick out, immediately went to the top rope and went for a Diving Cross Body but missed. CJ Parker lined Xavier up for his kick, but Xavier ducked and bounced Parker off the rope and went to roll him up for a pin, but CJ Parker turned the pin into his favor to win the match.

Winner – CJ Parker

Grade – C, Pretty much just a basic match here tonight. I don’t know if it’s CJ or not, but I feel he has sparks of greatness, but he flames out after a while. Tonight just wasn’t really their night, the ending where CJ pinned Xavier looked like he messed it up. I think he was supposed to be holding onto the ropes to make it look like a cheap victory but he didn’t. I have a feeling these two aren’t done with each other yet, but hopefully their future bouts will be better than this!

Backstage Interview W/Sami Zayn

Devin Taylor is backstage with Sami Zayn! She asks Zayn about his feelings towards his match against Tyson Kidd later tonight. Zayn spoke about how he feels ever since Kidd as shown up in NXT we have slowly seen the real Tyson Kidd. He went on to call Tyson many un-kind things and even stated Tyson is living in the shadow of his wife. He ends the interview by saying if you would have said he was fighting Kidd two months ago, he would have been excited, but tonight he is just looking to embarrass him!

Alexa Bliss vs. Sasha Banks

Alexa makes her way to the ring first, and during her entrance a video was played of a promo she cut before the match. Bliss talked about her previous victory over Sasha and how Banks underestimated her because of how Nice She is and Her Size! She even spoke how Banks former BFF’s where there. Banks makes her way down to the ring, and the match is on the way. Alexa Bliss starts off the match with quick pin falls, but each only for two. Banks, obviously annoyed by Bliss, lands a stiff dropkick after she kicks out of the second pin begins to dominate Alexa. Hitting many stiff strikes and even hitting her signature move! She hangs Bliss in the middle of the turnbuckles and then jams her knees right in Alexa’s gut! The Boss covers Alexa, but Bliss kicks out at two. Sasha continues to control Alexa, but Bliss did manage to fight back into it! Alexa using her speed to her advantage began to counter Sasha, and made her way to the top rope before she did and impressive flip over Banks! Sasha is not impresses though and it wasn’t long until she landed a Backbreaker and followed up with a Chin-Lock submission hold to force Alexa Bliss to tap out.

Winner – Sasha Banks

Grade – B-, Not a bad match between the two tonight, but we got to see The Boss dominate more tonight! It must be nice for Sasha to no longer have the distraction of The BFF’s at her side as she avenges her loss tonight. Alexa Bliss shows promise as we get to see more of her in ring skill. She still seems incredibly green to me, but she is improving each and every week. I don’t think it will be too long be Sasha Banks throws her name in the bucket of challenger for The  NXT Womens Championship!

Backstage Interview W/Tyler Breeze

Devin Taylor is backstage with Tyler Breeze and she asks him when he is going to challenge Adrian Neville for his NXT Championship. Breeze goes on to talk about greatness takes time! And once again states he suffered a Modeling Injury when he broke he broke his finger. He did say he had his agent working on the contract now! But of course it doesn’t take hours to get a contract done! Tyler than showed us his Music Video once again!

Backstage Interview W/Tyson Kidd

Before the interview, we are shown of video from last week. A reported walked tried to catch up with Natalya after the show and ask her what her reaction is to Tyson Kidd, but Natalya simply responded with a “I don’t want to talk about it.”  Devin Taylor is backstage with Tyson Kidd. She asks him about Natalya, and Kidd respond by asking her why she is wasting his time. He states when she interviewed Sami she didn’t ask him about his family! He then says what she should be asking him about is his victory over Sami Zayn, and as for his wife, she is a former WWE Divas Champion, she can take a bump and she understands accidents happen in the ring, but tonight when he beats Sami in the ring that won’t be an accident!

Adam Rose vs. Jason Jordan

Adam Rose and The Exotic Express make their return to NXT tonight and apparently Jason Jordan’s Tag Team Partner, Tye Dillinger was last seen with The Exotic Express and now he is injured, and Jason Jordan is going to get to the bottom of it! The match started off with Rose pulling off his usual antics, running his fingers down Jordan’s chest and jumping in his arms before pulling him down into a headlock! Rose kept control over Jordan through the begging but it was not long before Jordan fought back in this match landing a huge elbow on a unaccepting Rose. Jordan followed up with a great dropkicks and a very impressive suplex into a pin of only two. Jordan maintained control over Rose keeping him grounded with a headlock, but Rose fought back into the match and managed to get Jordan into the turnbuckle and hit his signature Cho Cho! Jordan stumbled to his feet right into Rose’s Party Foul. Adam Rose covers Jason Jordan for the win!

Winner – Adam Rose

Grade- C, Adam Rose makes his return to NXT to much fanfare! These two put on a basic match here with few things to boast about! I’m not sure if this whole Tye Dillinger thing is a storyline or not, but if it is that’s sucks for another upcoming team in the blooming NXT Tag Team Division. Adam Rose remains to be undefeated in the WWE/NXT!

Backstage Interview W/Kalisto

Devin Taylor is backstage with Kalisto. She talks about how he has already challenged for the NXT Tag Team Championship and almost defeated The Number One Contender for the NXT Championship, Tyler Breeze. Kalisto tells Devin he would rather talk about his future victories and not his past losses before he is interrupted by The Vaudevillians. Kalisto asks them what they are doing here and Aiden proceeds to hold up a sign reading “Where’s Your Partner?” Kalisto states that He and El Local parted ways, but proceed to tell The Vaudevillians that he can find a new and one and beat them, before asking If their speechless and then leaving!

Tyson Kidd vs. Sami Zayn

Both Tyson Kidd and Sami Zayn make their entrances and the match is quickly under way. Tyson dodged Sami early on using the rules to his advantage forcing the ref to pull Zayn off him during collision in the turnbuckle and against the ropes, the match finally gets under way when Sami finally gets his hands on Tyson landing clothesline after clothesline and following with an impressive Back Body Drop. Tyson Kidd uses the turnbuckle to pull himself up and Sami Zayn ran full force a Kidd looking for the Helluva Kick, but Tyson Kidd rolls out of the ring before Zayn could hit it. Sami rolls out after Kidd, but Tyson is up on the apron and runs at Sami landing a stiff kick to his chin and follows up with a suplex on the steel ramp on the outside of the ring before the commercial break. Once were back from the break we see Tyson Kidd cover Sami Zayn for a one count and then continue to keep control over Sami Zayn. Sami tries to fight back and the two superstars find themselves in the turnbuckle and Kidd begins to beat down on Zayn in the Turnbuckle before lifting him up and tying Zayn to the Tree of Woe! Tyson runs over to the other side of the ring and begins to measure Zayn up as the crowd sings The Chicken Dance at Kidd! Tyson does not let it bother him as he runs as Zayn full force and lands a harsh dropkick to Sami’s face. Tyson keeps control over Zayn grounding him with a headlock, but Zayn manages to get out of it and begins to brawl with Tyson and bounce of the ropes to land an impressive dropkick onto Tyson. Kidd rolls out of the ring, but Sami Zayn is one step ahead of Kidd as he uses the ropes to hit a Springboard Moonsault onto Tyson on the outside of the ring. Tyson rolls himself back into the ring and Sami rushes to the tope rope to land a cross body onto an unsuspecting Kidd! Zayn forces Kidd up and locks hands with him before slapping the chest of Kidd. Sami than went to run off the ropes, but Tyson counters into a drop toe hold, sending Sami face first into the bottom turnbuckle. Sami lays his head out side of the ring, a choice he would soon regret as Tyson Kidd lands a over the rope leg drop onto him, and then keeps control over Zayn. Sami has a brief moment when he and Kidd continued to counter each other, as the two attempted to German Suplex each other, but once again it was Tyson Kidd he win the debacle and lands a German Suplex onto Sami Zayn. Tyson climbs to the top rope and Sami tries to battle him but Kidd just kicks him away and leaps for an Elbow Drop, but he lands right onto Zayn’s Knees! Sami begins to take control and lands Blue Thunder Bomb that gets him only a two count! Tyson rolls on to the outside apron, Sami runs at him but Kidd catches him off guard with a stiff kick! Sami is on wobbly legs as Tyson runs to the top rope and lands a Blockbuster on Sami, but only for a two count. The two have a weird exchange but Tyson ends up locking in the Sharpshooter! Sami struggles to get to the ropes, and when he does Tyson just pulls him way. Sami did end up making it to the ropes refusing to tap out to Kidd! Tyson once again goes to the top rope and dives at Sami, but Zayn catches him in the air and takes him down to the mat where he locks in The Koji Clutch to force Tyson Kidd to tap out!

Winner – Sami Zayn

Grade – A, Sami Zayn and Tyson Kidd continue to put on great matches together. These two have great chemistry together and make perfect rivals. Zayn has always been a fan favorite on NXT and I feel he always will be! Tyson has pulled off his new heel role perfectly, and suffers a tough loss here tonight. It’ll be interesting to see how Tyson responds to this!

Superstars of the Night – The Vaudevillians

Tonight marks the first time we have two superstars of the night! The Vaudevillians have quickly become a top team in NXT and it would appear they are heading down the road to challenge for the NXT Tag Team Championships! Sami Zayn may of had a great match against Tyson Kidd tonight, and he finally got his revenge, but Aiden English and Simon Gotch managed to catch my attention during each of their segments. They opened up the show against Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady and what was a very exciting match up, that sadly ended early due to the distraction of The Legionaries, but it makes me hope foe a three way team match for the #1 Contendership to the Tag belts! Also their segment with Kalisto was a lot better than it should of been. Both Simon Gotch and Aiden English are excelling in their new role as a team, and are the only real challenge right now to The Ascension’s Tag Team Titles Reign.

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 |6-26-14| 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!
