A forgettable show with one exception: Neville vs Finn Balor.
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.
Not many things might have been settled here, but this was a good show with some good, or at least interesting, matches.
Bayley put her title on the line against her friend Carmella in a match that had some surprising and satisfying elements.
Despite some of the obvious character-building, the main event made this show. Balor versus Crews was a very good match. Not a classic, but it was a departure from the regular WWE/NXT formula.
With a couple of good matches, a lot of filler, and a return that no one cares about (both in-story and out), this week’s NXT was okay.
This was a week to build up the number one contenders. The matches weren’t surprising, but they were pretty good nonetheless.
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.
Highlighted by a main event that saw Tomasso Ciampa try to defeat Samoa Joe in a hard-hitting matchup, this edition of NXT from December 2, 2015 was good, but seemed to fall into the recurring trap of too many matches and not enough time.
