A long and entertaining show highlighted by two good matches featuring long histories. There was some down time in the show, but the good outweighed the not as good.
A forgettable show with one exception: Neville vs Finn Balor.
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.
It’s a fresh start for NXT as Sami Zayn returns, Elias Samson debuts, and new directions are taken in the aftermatch of Takeover!
A pretty good show and a nice final stop before Takeover next week. All the right things were built up, and there was some pretty good wrestling on the show as well.
