The opening segment this week was a contract signing (hosted by Jim Ross) between Big E Langston and Bo Dallas.
-Renee Young interviewed Corey Graves backstage about the upcoming tag match tonight.
Round 1: Paige vs. Tamina
In the first round of the Women’s Championship tournament, Paige and Tamina battled for the first time. I’m excited to see what divas will bring us in the next few weeks. I was not shocked at who the winner was, as I’m predicting she will win it all.
Winner: Paige - by pinfall
-Renee Young interviewed Kassius Ohno backstage about the upcoming tag match tonight.
Colin Cassady vs. Mason Ryan
I was shocked at how tall Cassady was. The commentators hyped Mason Ryan’s performance in the battle royal last week as he eliminated 11 people. Ryan seems to be getting better and better every week, so hopefully he can have some success when he comes back to the main roster.
Winner: Mason Ryan - by pinfall
Sami Zayn and Antonio Cesaro shared words and punches backstage.
Alex Riley vs. Connor O’Brian
I was so excited to see Alex Riley back in competition! But then I wasn’t when O’Brian showed up. Riley had decent offense in, but O’Brian later crushed him like a bug.
Winner: Connor O’Brian - by submission
-As O’Brian was headed out, Rick Victor came out and joined him. It seems that they are reviving the Ascension.
NXT Tag Team Championship Match: The Wyatt Family © vs. Corey Graves and Kassius Ohno
This match was great! Both Ohno and Graves impressed me. I never realized Graves’ potential to be a big star until this match. The Wyatt Family ultimately retained their titles with the help of Bray Wyatt.
Winners: and still the Tag Team Champions, The Wyatt Family
Overall Reaction: This week was better! The main event had me hooked, and I’m glad that the divas are getting the attention they need.
