Despite some good action, the overall feeling of this year’s Money in the Bank felt a little disappointing on multiple levels.
Zack Ryder returns to the ring as the Hype Bros face The Colons and the Kickoff for this year’s Money in the Bank PPV.
Asuka faces Nikki Cross and Ruby Riot in a triple threat elimination rematch for her NXT Women’s Title in the main event of an episode that was otherwise a bit light on interesting matches.
Cedric Alexander can’t seem to get away from Noam Dar and Alicia Fox , and Akira Tozawa faces TJP in the main event of a nice episode of 205 Live.
The last stop before Money in the Bank had four good matches and some nice buildup for the show.
Wrestling seemed to take a back seat this week despite a main event featuring a two out of three falls tag title match.
Lince Dorado faces Drew Gulak in a rematch from last week and Bo Dallas takes on Curt Hawkins in a match created after their failed attempt at being a team on the previous episode of Main Event.
This episode of NXT was rather forgettable, though it did feature No Way Jose’s first match after his return last week and a hard-hitting bout between Hideo Itami and Oney Lorcan.
TJP finally gets the title shot he’s been waiting for in an episode of 205 Live that also featured an apparently definitive end to the Dar/Alexander/Fox saga.
This was a good show that featured the SmackDown Live debut of Lana, a rematch between Styles and Ziggler, and a first time on SmackDown bout between Owens and Nakamura!
Tonight’s show was light on wrestling with the exceptions of a nice opener and closer, but there were a few good moments including a memorable segment featuring Paul Heyman confronting Samoa Joe.

Kalisto faces Apollo Crews in a decent Kickoff for this year’s Extreme Rules.
This episode of Main Event was definitely lacking. Drew Gulak faced Lince Dorado in a match with an unfortunate ending, and Slater & Rhyno faced Dallas & Hawkins in a match that was completely unremarkable.
A few solid matches and a little story development make this an NXT easily worth watching.
