This show felt like a promo for another show. There were lots of matches, but all but one were squashes.
Storylines seemed to take a backseat this week, but that allowed Cedric Alexander’s NXT debut to take center stage.
The tournament ends and a new WWE Cruiserweight champion is crowned in a fantastic conclusion to the 2016 Cruiserweight Classic.
This was a good episode of NXT with two very nice matches and two that were basically exhibitions.
The wrestling was a little lacking on this episode. A good number of matches, but the quality just wasn’t there. This episode felt like a placeholder while they start to rebuild feuds after Takeover.
The final episode of the second round brings another set of great matches.
NXT gives Summer Slam a run for its money with another great Takeover with some fantastic title matches.
The matches were short, but things are shaping up nicely for Takeover.
The first round of the tournament ends with a great, emotional match between tag team partners Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa.
A good show that felt a little like a continuation from last week in its changing of the guard due to the draft.
This week’s episode of NXT wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great either. A pretty average show with announcements of exciting matches in the next few weeks.
The first Full Sail NXT of 2016 set up some possible new directions for its singles title holders, but the show itself got NXT off to a slow start for the year.
