Gutteridge's WWE NXT Hitlist: Adrian Neville vs. Tyler Breeze for the NXT Title, Bayley vs. Sasha Bank to determine the No. 1 Contender to the NXT Women's Title, and the Tag Team Tournament continues
2014-08-16 10:32:38


By Darren Gutteridge

WWE NXT Hits Bayley vs. Sasha Banks: Great match. I even feel adding the “Great Divas match” tag would do it a disservice. I praised the Woods vs. Parker match last week for feeling personal, but this was above and beyond that, as this match has been bubbling under for a while. I'll happily watch these two work another programme down the line. Bayley chasing the NXT Women's Championship feels like the best story the NXT Divas division has right now. It should be something built to over a long period of time, as the fans will be right behind all the way along the build, and they will explode when she finally wins. I expect Step 2 to take place at NXT Takeover II, with Charlotte retaining in a screwy manner.

Adrian Neville vs. Tyler Breeze: I think my expectations were set too high here, as I ended up being underwhelmed by what was admittedly a good main event, with some great spots. That Tornado DDT from Breeze was a sight to behold. I think I expected PPV level quality, and instead got TV level quality, but I accept that that is my fault, not theirs. I like the match the aftermath sets up, more so than it's execution. There was no really impact to it, as it just looked like half hearted brawling.

Sin Cara and Kalisto vs. Wesley Blake and Buddy Murphy: Exactly what it needed to be. No one was going to buy into Blake and Murphy in their debut, so why not make it a spot fest? As much of a tainted character as it is, Sin Cara 2.0 is gelling with Kalisto much more than El Local ever did. There is a spot right now on the main roster for a pure high flying team, and I think these two could fill it nicely. But they have to drop the “Lu-cha! Lu-cha!” chant soon if it doesn't get over, as it comes off as desperately pandering.

Overall Show: A better showing from the NXT brand this week. All four matches carried consequences, and although not all of the matches brought a high quality, they all added to an ongoing story, and that made for a good overall episode.

WWE NXT Misses The VaudeVillains vs. Mojo Rawley and Bull Dempsey: I'm still all about the VaudeVillains as an entertaining act, but they are yet another example of the NXT Problem (no true main event players). And the Rawley/Dempsey break-up after only their 2nd match together was laughable. There was no real impact for the “breakup” because a 5 year old who has been watching wrestling for a month could tell what was coming. Awful.
