Show needs a thread. I love NXT, so let's do this.
-Mojo Rawley def. CJ Parker. -Tyler Breeze def. Xavier Woods. -Natalya (with Bret "The Hitman" Hart) def. Charlotte (with Sasha Banks) via DQ by Sasha. -Corey Graves def. Yoshi Tatsu. -Adrian Neville retains NXT Title against Bo Dallas.
Mojo is a weird dude. He has way too much butt-based offense and is way too hyper for me to get into. The Full Sail Crowd is into him though, so that's what's important. CJ Parker on the other hand get's almost no reaction from the crowd and this is the second week this is happened. I've been watching him on NXT for a while and just don't think wrestling in the WWE is for him as he just hasn't connect with this smaller crowd after near a year of this gimmick.
I honestly couldn't stand Breeze months ago until it hit me that he is essentially Derek Zoolander the wrestling gimmick. Alex Riley actually coming right out and saying "He's an Ambi-turner he can turn both left and right" solidifies it. It could be comedy if he got called up and Creative did vignettes of him at actual fashion shows being a terrible model around real models.
Charlotte would of won that match had she had a better cheater in her corner like say, i dunno HER FATHER who was conspicuously absent this week after having been featured for about three weeks. I'm guessing they are saving the inevitable Flair Family v. Hart Family collision for a bigger event.
Corey Graves is my dude. How I hate everything about Mojo's goofy over-the-top kid hopped up on sugar personality, I love that Corey is the opposite; slowed down, cool, aloof, and methodical. They may need to feud soon. I like the idea of that collision of personality.
Neville breaks out some fucking crazy looking inverted 450 splash as a secondary finisher that looks like something I've made in the WWE 2k video games! I dig it. Last night was not "Bo's Ring".

This should be used in some way with Fandango. They sunk a lot into that gimmick for it just to be used to get Summer Rae over.

That was a killer main event, maybe even better than their ladder match at ArRival. I also really enjoyed the women's match, as I have enjoyed every women's match in NXT so far. I agree that Mojo Rawley isn't really working; in my mind, his biggest problem is that he's got this "super hyper" gimmick, but he's just far too slow. Graves has a good gimmick, but I haven't been very impressed with his ringwork so far. Does anyone know how long he's been down in NXT for?
If Shelton's IC reign is an indication of what a new guy can expect for his writing, I say Batista's better off as a Big Belt contender and champ. Why go through PPV subplots of him fighting Tomko, Snitsky, Kane, Simon Dean, et al.
