While wrestling fanatics are always looking forward to the next episode of RAW and SmackDown Live, many diehard fans wait patiently to witness the action that takes place on NXT.

This past Wednesday, the wrestling world watched one of the biggest NXT episodes ever, as the brand debuted on the USA Network. To ensure the action remained as big as the hype that surrounds the brand, NXT booked two of their top Superstars in an NXT North American Championship match.

That wasn’t all, as the company booked a Number One Contender's Match for the NXT Women’s Championship and the 205 Live’s Cruiserweight Championship from this week’s episode.

In this article, we will look at the three things NXT got right and two things they got wrong on their USA Network debut.

How do you introduce your female talent to the world? The way NXT did it this past Wednesday ensures that everyone knows that the brand has the best female wrestlers in professional wrestling.

Io Shirai, Bianca Belair, Candice LeRae, and Mia Yim all competed in a Fatal 4-Way match to determine the number one contender to Shayna Baszler’s NXT Women's Championship.

All four women produced nonstop action which served the purpose of showcasing the NXT Women's Division to perfection. The women were also given adequate time to display their uniqueness and prove why each one belonged in the match.

LeRae got the most out of the battle, as she will no longer exclusively be known as Johnny Gargano’s wife. Her victory enabled her to pick up one of the biggest wins of her career and also get one over on Io Shirai.

If LeRae does go on to win the NXT Women’s Championship at a later date, the WWE Universe can rest assured that she'll have a ready made challenger waiting for her.
