8/22 Gutteridge's WWE NXT Hit List: Triple H makes an in-ring appearance, Charlotte vs. Becky Lynch, and the semifinals of the Tag Team Tournament
2014-08-23 10:27:59


By Darren Gutteridge

WWE NXT Hits

Kalisto and Sin Cara vs Sami Zayn and Adam Rose: A good main event. I said last week that I really like the potential Sin Cara and Kalisto have, and that belief grew even stronger this week. If they can drag a good match out of the Ascension, I won't be convinced they aren't anything short of future WWE Tag Champs.

The VaudeVillains vs Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady: The match itself was a throwaway, but the quick squash of Amore was logical. Last time out, Amore was useless, but won. Here, he was useless, and lost. That said, the running corner spot where Amore was launched by Cass and landed back on the apron was awesome.

Charlotte vs Becky Lynch: I'm afraid I missed the opening moments of the match as I was too busy freaking out over Lynch's elbow. Seriously, watch her point to the hard camera side before the match - her elbow goes past 180 degrees. Between this and Aiden English's super exposed shoulder blades, it was an uncomfortable night for someone unsettled by such things. Once I got back into the match, I found it to be a nice, quick paced (if a little rough) bout. It wasn't a touch on last weeks Divas match, but another good outing for a champion we all had doubts over.

Triple H's promo: Triple H is a completely different character on NXT. He is basically the babyface boss, far to proud of his "kids" to play the heel (which is a case of art imitating life). I also like him dealing with all major announcements, as it brings main roster legitimacy to the smaller stage.

Overall Show: There wasn't much to dislike this week. Even with my two misses, one is borderline. Plus, the announcement of another live special makes me hopefully that episode quality is only going to increase.

WWE NXT Misses

Mojo Rawley vs Steve Cutler: Oh boy, we're back to Rawley squashes. Mojo's post match promo made no sense. The smile is apparently "gone", but he's still running around like an idiot. To think I used to try and defend this man.

Tyson Kidd vs Tyler Breeze: I get why it happened, and Kidd's after match celebrations nearly saved it, but this gets a miss for being a disappointment, as I would have liked to see this match.
