The tag team tournament continues to heat up with two decent matches. The Vaudevillains are fun to watch and very talented in the ring. They are definitely a favorite to win the tournament. Calisto and Sin Cara are a high energy, luchadore team, but don't offer anything compelling. I would definitely be disappointed if they won the tournament. Personally, I think it is going to go to Enzo Amore and Big Cass, simply because they are the most over tag team in NXT right now. I hope whoever wins the tournament beats The Ascension because, quite frankly, they are boring and don't do it for me.
The main event tonight was another good bout featuring "The Man That Gravity Forgot", Adrian Neville, against "Prince Pretty", Tyler Breeze. Neville putting on a good match has become standard at this point, but Tyler Breeze has really surprised me over the past few months. I was skeptical when he first started getting a push but he has more than proven himself since NXT: Takeover. He is a solid worker who has been very consistent going against the biggest names in NXT. I'm not sure how I felt about the ending of tonight's match and I hope Breeze will be getting a rematch in the near future, most likely at the NXT PPV.
