Here is a recap for the 11/25/15 edition of NXT from our lead NXT Correspondent Angela Delgado. (@angtweetz_)
The show opens up with Micheal Cole in the ring as he’s serving as GM as William Regal is recovering from surgery. His first announcement is making an NXT Women’s Title match between Eva Marie and Bayley. He introduces Finn Balor and Samoa Joe for a contract signing for their match at NXT Takeover: London. Joe makes his way to the ring without saying a word and not looking at Balor. He signs his contract and leaves, the whole thing was bad ass. Better than a tiring contract brawl. Not making eye contact spoke volumes of how awesome the match is going to be. Balor signs his contract and as he’s making his way up the ramp, he’s attacked by Joe and is choked out in the middle of the ring.
NXT Tag Team Title Rematch: The Vaudevillians vs Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder
An old school feel to this match considering the look of the Vaudevillians and the fighting style of Dash and Dawson. Fast start for Aiden English before Dash and Dawson were working on his injured arm. A fun exchange of both teams missing their finishers but Dash and Dawson fimnally connect to retain their titles. Enzo and Big Cass come back for their revenge and clean house. If this is setting up for a title match at Takeover: London, I’m all in. Time to give Enzo and Big Cass the titles.
A cringeworthy backstage segment from Eva Marie. She really called herself “The hottest literally prospect” in NXT…. seriously. Said it before and I’ll say it again, it’s gonna be a sad night when and if she beats Bayley for the title.
Asuka vs Dana Brooke
The match never happens when Emma attacks Asuka from behind. Emma applies the Emma Lock. Boy, do these two have a death wish.
Totally the opposite of what nonsense Eva Marie was saying in her segment. Bayley says the only difference between her and Eva Marie is that she’s a WRESTLER and that Eva Marie is underestimating her. Bayley ends her interview with Tom Phillips with an adorable high five. Seriously, Bayley is the best. I want to meet the person who hates her. Hating Bayley is like hating puppies.
Apollo Crews vs Jesse Sorensen
I don’t know who this guy is but the announce team were speaking highly of him. He trained with the Dudleyz. All that didn’t matter because Crews made light work out of him. Gets the victory with a powerbomb. After the match, he accepts Baron Corbin’s challenge for NXT Takeover: London.
Charles Robinson aka “Little Naich” makes his way to the ring to ensure no controversy during the Woman’s Title match.
NXT Women’s Title Match: Eva Marie vs Bayley
Eva Marie makes her way to the ring with Nia Jax. Bayley hits a quick Bayley 2 Belly. As the ref was getting to 3, Nia Jax drag him out of the ring. Bayley wants a DQ but Charles Robinson is continuing the match. He gets distracted by Eva and Nia Jax hits Bayley with a headbutt. Watching Eva Marie in the ring is painful. She looks uncomfortable. She’s a natural heel because everyone hates her guts. After a few more distractions, Bayley connects with a Bayley 2 Belly from the top rope for the victory. Nia Jax lays Bayley out with two leg drops and that’s how the show ends.
*Side Note: Sami Zayn is advertised for a comeback. Maybe for NXT: London? Or hopefully to the Main Roster for revenge on Kevin Owens. That can spice up this already weak roster.
That’s it for NXT. Hope you guys have a great Thanksgiving and see you guys next week!
