NXT continues to deliver with another quality episode. It was good to see Sin Cara in action, even if it was just a filler match. I'm not sure how I feel about Bull Dempsey. I enjoy the idea of his character, but something about it feels very forced. Sami Zayn and Adrian Neville make an awesome tag-team, as do the heal incarnations of Tyson Kidd and Justin Gabriel. I wouldn't be surprised to see either one or both of these teams eventually become main stays on the main roster. I am a huge fan of Sami Zayn, but I don't have any idea of what they are going to do with him if he ever gets pulled up to the main roster. A team consisting of him and Neville, however, would be a great way to introduce both men's high flying, indy style to an audience that is used to seeing a whitewashed, sometime monotonous product.
