NXT Recap – 5/18/16

Good Evening, Wrestling Chronicle readers. Angie here back from vacation and ready to get back in recap mode. A lot is happening in NXT in the main event picture. Samoa Joe and Finn Balor are killing each other at house shows and their final showdown will be at the June 8th Takeover in a Steel Cage. Should be brutal and excellent and also, Finn’s NXT farewell.

Austin Aries and Shinsuke Nakamura def. Blake and Murphy

Nakamura ignoring Aries’ tag to connect for Kinsasha kick was interesting. Maybe a feud will brew soon? Also, does anyone care that Blake and Murphy broke up? I guess this is a good thing for a Alexa Bliss. Time for her to go solo and be a main player in the NXT Women’s Division.

Carmella def. Peyton Royce

Not a great match. I love Carmella in NXT but I think she should’ve been called up with Enzo and Cass. With Enzo out of action, she could’ve had some shine with Cass in the main roster.

Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano def. Danny Burch and Rob Ryzin

Ciampa and Gargano are a fun team. I do wonder if they continue as a team after they compete in the Cruiserweight Classic. How awesome would a Ciampa and Gargano vs American Alpha be? All the flame emojis.

Nia Jax def. Bayley

I’m not a Nia Jax fan but holy crap did she just toss Bayley around like a rag doll this match. Which got me thinking… will Bayley actually come back from her injury in time for Takeover and become a two time champ? We would all love to see Bayley in the main roster now but where would she fit? The Summer seemed like a great time for her to debut but maybe we’ll see her in the fall. She is still needed in NXT as the face and why not give her one last run as the champ?

What did you guys think of the show? Follow me and The Wrestling Chronicle on Twitter and come back tomorrow for my Smackdown recap!
