NXT WOMEN'S TITLE TOURNAMENT FINALS: Paige vs. Emma- 6.25/10
Very good match and a very hot crowd. I don't think I have ever heard the NXT crowd be this loud aside from when they are booing the crap out of Bo. They did a great job of making this feel like a huge moment.

ANGELO DAWKINS vs. TYLER BREEZE- okay squash.
WHAT THE F*CK HAPPENED TO MIKE DALTON?! I will admit that if anyone needed a repackage at this point, it was Dalton (he was the best babyface in FCW in early 2012, but had faded into total obscurity by the end of June), but this is just nuts! The man has a clear knack for being a babyface. Why would you make him an arrogant male model? And if you are going to make him a am arrogant male model, get him some MNM-style photographers. Having him take selfies just makes him look pathetic.

I will admit that Breeze did look pretty vicious here, but Dawkins seemed like a much better wrestler. And a spinning heel kick as a finish? Really?

ASCENSION PROMO- Oh. I get it. Their gimmick is that they are being possessed by the Undertaker. Rick Victor even looks like a much younger Undertaker.

THE ASCENSION vs. MICKEY KEEGAN & AIDEN ENGLISH- squash

SHEAMUS vs. LUKE HARPER (w/the Wyatt Family)- 6.75/10
Wyatt laughing when his own guy lost just made him seem even scarier.

A good show from NXT
