This week’s episode of NXT was solid. Storylines were continued, main players were highlighted and above all, kept the fans invested in the show.
Headline of the show was NXT champion Tommaso Ciampa, which might not have created much of an impact, but the overall show was entertaining and interesting as usual.
William Regal updates on Aleister Black investigation
NXT General Manager opened the show by updating the WWE Universe about the ongoing investigation of the attack on Aleister Black.
The Undisputed Era arrived and Adam Cole reiterated his desire for a rematch with North American champion Ricochet. Much to the dismay of the heels, Regal made it a Triple Threat match since Cole robbed Pete Dunne a week ago.
This was a decent in-ring promo and an opportunity to set up a future match. There was no information about Alesiter Black’s assailants probably because Regal himself doesn’t know who it is. Storylines were kept in tact and War Raiders, Dunne and Ricochet were kept at the forefront.
Lars Sullivan defeated Orchant via disqualification
Returning Superstar Lars Sullivan tossed Orchant around the ring and dominated the opponent throughout.
Before Sullivan could secure a win, EC3 disrupted the match and attacked him.
What could have become a typical squash match was made entertaining by the interference of EC3. A high profile win is much needed for EC3 but the question is whether Lars Sullivan is the right opponent.
The Mighty defeated Street Profits
Miller and Thorne got the upper-hand early in the match by isolating Angelo Dawkins, but a tag to Ford appeared to turn the table, for a while.
Thorne dropkicked the steel ring steps into Ford’s leg as Ford got his knee trapped between the steps and the ring post and eventually earned the victory.
It was great action from both the team and it needs to be seen whether the storyline will be continued or was it the last of it.
