REVIEWThis was a decent episode of NXT. The women's tournament is shaping up to be pretty exciting and I like how it's a mix of Main Roster and NXT Divas competing for the belt. Bo Dallas and Tyson Kidd had the best match on the show and it was a great way to start things off. The two men have opposite styles which complimented each other well in the ring. Kidd is looking good since his return and its just a matter of time before we see him on the Main Roster again. Dallas' premiere on the Main Roster is quickly approaching and I look forward to see what creative has in store for him.
Neville and Clay's match was a classic monster vs. high flyer match that saw Neville overcome a vicious beating at the hands of Clay. However, I don't see Clay going very far from here. He had such a ridiculous gimmick with Tons of Funk that I don't know if his character could recover from it. That is a real shame because Clay is a powerhouse that could have been a decent competitor if he was used right from the beginning.
