NXT Coverage: Crowded Title Picture Solved by Regal

If it wasn’t apparent that NXT needed Kenta and Prince Devitt, it is now. With a plethora of squash matches and all the same faces in the NXT title picture, NXT needs a major shake up.

Matches:

The Ascension: Konnor and Viktor vs. Unnamed Jobbers: Viktor played with one of them for a few seconds before he brought in the other member of the team and a Fall of Man later and you have another joke of a match. After the decimation, the team delivered a cliche-ridden promo that did nothing to add more to their upcoming title match.

Sasha Banks vs. Bayley: Whoa. Banks was in complete control until Bayley hit the Belly-to-Baily Suplex for the win.

Bull Dempsey vs. Angelo Dawkins: Dempsey hit a ton of strikes and finished off Dawkins with the Bulldozer for the win.

Tyson Kidd and Tyler Breeze vs. Sami Zayn and NXT Champion Adrian Neville: Zayn and Neville worked well together, while Breeze and Kidd couldn’t get along until later in the match. After Breeze and Kidd got rolling, they took it hard to Neville especially, cutting off the ring and using quick tags. Zayn eventually got the tag and changed the momentum, but Kidd evened things out with an awesome Swinging Three-Handled Credenza. After an Exploder Suplex in the corner, Zayn tagged in Neville as things began to break down. After Breeze took out Neville on the top rope, Breeze dodged a Zayn Big Boot, which caused Zayn to inadvertently hit his partner. Although he hit the Blue Thunder on Breeze, Kidd eliminated Zayn and rolled up Neville to get the win. After the match, Zayn was pissed and nailed Kidd with the running Yakuza Kick.
