Ok week for NXT this week.

SaNitY had a very good week in squashing Bollywood Boyz with Cillian Dane working the whole match to show off his skillset, and then with the beat down of Tye Dillinger and then working as a cohesive unit in the 6 man tag main event. I can see why Jose helped Tye but Strong is a strange choice to add to the mix given there's no history there. Also Cross shouting for Asuka had me dreaming......

Liv Morgan taking the win against Billy Kay was a surprise, however we now get a tag match next week where Liv and a partner of her choosing will go up against Kay & Royce. The only partner I can see is Ember Moon sadly sigh.

The tag match was perfectly fine. It will be good to see them use Heavy Machinery more often as they need to build new teams again now, but what I am really looking forward to is Revival vs AOP as that will be a slobber knocker without doubt.

I really like the fact we're getting a UK Championship match next week as Tyler Bate defends against Trent Seven, awesome job.

Also the glorious celebration was just that....glorious!

My thoughts pretty much echo what Baz said, loved Sanity particularly Damo, and Roode was awesome.

I liked Heavy Machinery, another old school team who I saw as being in the Natural Disasters mold. Hopefully they get a push moving forward.

That was not an episode of NXT I would care to see again. Really not a fan of Peyton Royce or Billy Kay or Liv Morgan. I didn't was the UK Tournament so that main event meant nothing to me, so aside from the tag title scene there was nothing to this show for me to be interested in.

Wwe needs to find another way to get the UK Title integrated with their main roster. Using it in NXT just doesn't do it for me.

The UK title match was fine. I agree it doesn't really belong on the NXT brand. I want to see the stand alone UK program but if it's going to build up steam it probably needs to be highlighted on Smackdown or RAW to get the attention it needs to pull in an audience.

NXT knows Tag.

The women were a complete miss in my opinion. A lot of weaknesses in skill were highlighted and Peyton Royce and Billy Kay just aren't enjoyable to watch. I can't say anything about Liv Morgan because of reasons.

Peyton Royce and Billy Kay are like PG-era Lez-B-Friends. Seriously, what's the point to them holding hands wherever they go?

NXT needs to be focusing on building up Daria Berenato IMO. Granted, a lot of the onus is on her. She needs to beef up IMO, as well as make sure her fundamentals in the ring are solid. That gimmick and her look is fucking money. Were she just a bit more hard bodied, and could prove she had mastered the basics she would make for great TV on NXT.

She and Elias Samson are two noobs I want to see succeed more than anyone since I first saw Joe Hennig in FCW feuding with Sheamus in 2009. Unfortunately, I'm just about as confident of them succeeding as I was of Joe Hennig in 2010.
