Overall this was a decent episode of NXT. It wasn't anything special, especially compared to last week's Takeover, but most of the wrestlers, especially Charlotte and Adrian Neville, were probably sore from their epic encounters at Takeover. I am glad that Charlotte reestablished herself as a heel, but I would have like to see a clean finish following her win at Takeover. Tyler Breeze's video was pretty hilarious and I can't wait for his match with Adrian Neville. Neville and Gabriel put on a good match, but I would have like to see him face someone within the ranks of NXT instead of another pull down from the main roster.
