REVIEWOverall, this was a pretty lackluster episode of NXT. The highlight was Bo Dallas' math against Justin Gabriel. This was a well worked match and showcased both men's talent. I can't wait for Bo Dallas' debut (not counting his appearance last year) on the main roster. I'm not sure what they will do with him but he is a great worker and really knows how to play the heel role. He is someone that the crowd loves to hate and knows how to get great heat.
