With a handful of debuts, two more matches in the Dusty Classic, and a minor payoff to Samoa Joe’s attacks over the last few weeks, this was an entertaining episode of NXT.
The 2016 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic starts with one squash and one good match, Samoa Joe ruins Dan Matha’s debut, Patrick Clark debut’s a new look when he faces Rich Swann, and Peyton Royce beats up a new girl with her friend Billie Kay by her side.
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.
