This was an uneven episode of NXT with some segments that were important (and entertaining) and some that were not.
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.
Since this is the last episode of NXT before Takeover: Brooklyn, this show was basically a really long promo for the event (even though there were a couple of matches).
The matches were short, but things are shaping up nicely for Takeover.
Blake and Murphy bookend a solid, if not great, episode of NXT.
A good show that felt a little like a continuation from last week in its changing of the guard due to the draft.
A great show from start to finish.
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.
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.
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.
