This episode of NXT definitely had some highs and lows. I would have like to see a longer match between Parker and Rawley and a different winner. Rawley's finishing move is ridiculous in my opinion, but it does fit his character I suppose. Natalya and Charlotte put on a decent performance. Natalya should just stick with wrestling on NXT as the women there actually wrestle. Graves and Tatsu was a short match but entertaining. It helped showcase the brutality of Graves and built up his match next week against Zayn. I can't wait for that one. Neville and Dallas put on a great match and solidified Neville's place atop the NXT food chain. Dallas's straight forward style juxtaposed great with Neville's high flying tactics. This juxtaposition was even more pronounced in this match without the ladders in play.
