NXT Coverage: Still Finding Its Ground

NXT 2.0 continues to find its footing as it tried to remain true to its roots with fun segments thanks to Johnny Gargano and Dexter Lumis and solid matches between Roderick Strong and Grayson Waller, as well as a main event featuring two of the top females in the industry today. However, in-between that, there were green matches and lacking promo. Simply put, the show’s still a work in progress. That doesn’t mean it isn’t enjoyable, you just have to take it with a grain of salt at times.
