Four meaningful matches in terms of storyline development and more Tommaso Ciampa made for an excellent episode of NXT this week.
Lacey Evans vs. Brandi Lauren: A squash as Evans hit the Women’s Right for the quick win. After the match, Kairi Sane attacked Evans and Best her all over the tinge in the most noteworthy element of the segment.
The Velveteen Dream vs Ricochet: This was just a small taste of what these two have the possibility of doing and it was awesome- until Lars Sullivan hit the ring and beat on both of them.
Kona Reeves vs. Raul Mendoza: Reeves won with The Hawaiian Drop but Mendoza put him over with good work.
UK Champion Pete Dunne, Oney Lorcan, and Danny Burch vs The Undisputed ERA: North American Champion Adam Cole and NXT Tag Team Champions Kyle O‘Reilly and Roderick Strong: This one had a wild finish as TUE had this all wrapped up until miscommunication between Strong and O’Reilly allowed Burch and Lorcan to hit a Wheelbarrow DDT for the win.
