From Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida

Commentators: Tom Phillips & Brad Maddox

Championship’s roll call: WWE Champion: John Cena… World Champion: Alberto Del Rio… Intercontinental Champion: Curtis Axel… United States Champion: Dean Ambrose… Tag Team Champions: The Shield… NXT Champion: Bo Dallas… NXT Tag Team Champions: The Wyatt Family… Diva’s Champion: AJ Lee

Adrian Neville vs. Bray Wyatt (w/The Wyatt Family): Neville opens with kicks but Wyatt takes his head off with a clothesline. He slams him and plays to the crowd. Wyatt continues to choke him in the ropes and nails a head-butt. Neville tries to make a comeback but Wyatt head-butts him again; a series of elbow drops. He tosses Neville onto the apron but he gets a kick in and head up top but the Family is there to shove him off the top quickly drawing a DQ. Post-match, the Family beat the shit out of him until Corey Graves and Kassius Ohno make the save and toss Harper and Rowan into the post. GM Dusty Rhodes comes out and makes the obvious six-man tag main event. 3.5/10 This was just a set up for the main event of the evening, which should be a good one.

Here is your winner… Adrian Neville via DQ

Sami Zayn vs. Angelo Dawkins: They lock up and Dawkins pushes him into the ropes and gives Zayn a shove. They fight over an armlock and Zayn gets a nice counter; Dawkins gets a shoulderblock but makes the mistake of tossing Zayn off the ropes where leapfrogs into a pair of nice armdrags. Dawkins uses his strength and an elbow to the face to take over; he plants Zayn with a nice bodyslam. Angelo clamps on a chinlock and wears Zayn down for a while. Zayn finally comes back and punches Angelo in the gut but Dawkins keeps fighting back. Zayn comes back with the step-up the ropes tornado DDT and goes to 2-0 against guys named Dawkins and Hawkins. 3/10 I like Zayn but this was an uneventful super short squash that involved a few armdrags a chinlock and the finisher tornado DDT.

Here is your winner… Sami Zayn via tornado DDT pinfall

A video package for Leo Kruger is shown; I like him and haven’t seen him in a long while. Ta-ta.

Sasha Banks vs. Summer Rae NXT Women’s Championship tournament, first round: They lock up and stalemate; Rae shoves Banks down on her face and chokes her in the ropes. She hits a dropkick for two. She chokes her in the ropes with her leg. She biels her across the ring and continues the abuse catapulting her off the ropes for two. Banks uses a few palm strikes to comeback but Raw plants her face first into the mat but Banks kicks out. Summer uses the “long legs” to choke in the corner again; she applies a seated armlock and pushes on Bank’s shoulder s stretching her. Sasha tries a spinebuster but Rae pulls her down and they cat fight. A chop battle ensues but Sasha wins that and leaps off the top with a Mysterio like armdrag. Summer gets a legdrop bulldog to advance in the tourney. 4/10 Better than most of the diva matches in the WWE; I figured Rae is winning here and will probably advance to the finals to give us Paige and Rae for the title.

Here is your winner… Summer Rae via legdrop bulldog pinfall

Xavier Woods notes all the episodes on NXT that he’s been on. He says he will raise the roof.

Xavier Woods vs. Jake Carter: Woods dances around annoying Carter. They lock up and Woods works the arm. He keeps wringing it until Carter goes for the ‘fro. Woods comes back with a shoulderblock and a tilt-a-whirl head scissors. Woods works an armbar on the mat. They are building Woods as stock in the nineties. Carter comes back with a Hennig Snap for two. He heads up top but misses a sledge; Woods comes back with punches to the face. He hits a dropkick and nips up into the Eye Roll and Lost in the Woods (Eat Defeat) for three. 5/10 I like this character for Woods it is kind of funny, the stuck in the nineties part, and better than the “dancing babyface.” At least it has some depth.

Here is your winner… Xavier Woods via Lost in the Woods pinfall

In the back Sami Zayn talks to Renee Young; he said that his squash against Angelo Hawkins is a message to Antonio Cesaro. He wants the rubber match against Cesaro. Elsewhere, Sebastian Lefort is with his team in the back bitching that they deserve a tag title shot. Here’s Dusty Rhodes to make fun of Lefort’s Frenchness. Lefort wants to make “ze money” so Rhodes gives them a major match against Kassius Ohno and Corey Graves in the future.

Bo Dallas cuts a promo from his car where he thanks all his fans for winning the title; we also get pics of him at Disney World. He’s coming back to NXT with his title next week.

Adrian Neville, Kassius Ohno & Corey Graves vs. The Wyatt Family: Harper and Graves start and Graves gets a headlock; he tosses him into the corner and Graves floats over and tags in Ohno. Kassius gets nailed and Rowan gets a tag; Ohno makes a comeback but Rowan clubs back. Ohno winds up on the apron and get a boot in and takes over; here is a tag to Neville. Wyatt gets a reciprocating tag and pummels Adrian and tries a slingshot but Neville turns it into a double stomp in the corner. He gets some kicks in and tries a pinfall. Wyatt takes control back quickly and brings Harper back in; Neville dazzles him with a hurracanrana and tags in Graves. Corey gets a figure-four arm scissors in the ropes but Harper comes back with a huge boot and takes control for the Family. Back from break with Graves kicking his way back but Harper keeps him back with a body splash. Wyatt tags in and works Craves over with a chinlock. Graves tries a sunset and suckers Wyatt into trying a sit-down splash and misses. Ohno tags in and pummels Rowan. He nails a leaping lariat but gets a cross-corner whip reversed and Triple H’s himself to the floor where Harper is waiting to beat him up. Harper tags out and the Family takes over on Kassius. Wyatt comes back in and they beat the crap out of Ohno now. Harper returns and drops some elbows. They sequester Ohno and work him over for a while. Rowan gets a pump-handle backbreaker for two. They continue the beating until Ohno and Harper smack heads in the corner; Wyatt makes a tag and knocks the partners off the apron. Neville ducks and Ohno manages to sneak in a tag. Adrian flips all over the ring with kicks and the standing shooting star. He dropkicks Wyatt to the floor. Rowan comes in and Ohno takes him out with a running kick. Neville takes everyone out the floor with a twisting plancha. Wyatt gets nailed and Neville tries the Red Arrow but Harper pulls him to safety, Neville CRASHES AND BURNS, and Wyatt covers for the pin. 5.5/10 Decent main event this week; nothing too special but the Family continues to dominate.

Here are your winners… The Wyatt Family via top-rope miss pinfall

OVERALL 5/10 Not too special of a show as the Neville/Graves/Ohno versus the Wyatt Family took center stage. I like this feud but this show really didn’t do that much for me this week.
