This was another good episode of NXT. The developmental roster continues to heat up with a plethora of talented performers and entertaining personalities. Wrestlers like CJ Parker and Tyler Breeze have a ton of charisma and demand attention when they are on the screen.
Colin Cassady in particular has been on fire lately. He has been getting a pretty decent push over the past few months and I see big things for this young man in the future. He is a big man who can move and doesn't let his size overshadow his character. He reminds me of Scott Hall in his prime and has the look, the charisma, and the athletic ability to become a true superstar.
Besides that, Sami Zayn and Justin Gabriel had an awesome match tonight. It had a slow build, but delivered with action at the right moment. what I liked most about it was that it showed a side of both men we seldom get to see. As both Zayn and Gabriel are known as high flyers, it was refreshing to see them deliver in a good old fashioned wrasslin' match and prove that they are versatile workers.
