NXT- 5 Points to Note (2nd May, 2018)
This hasn't necessarily been the best week for WWE wrestling. RAW was okay, SmackDown Live was substandard and this wasn't the best NXT show either. That said, it could be because we've come to expect a mind-blowing weekly performance from the yellow brand. It was only an hour long and for what it was worth, it was fine.
What did you think of this week's episode of NXT? Did you think they continued the excitement of TakeOver? Let us know in the comments below.
Here is our analysis of the show. We thought it was a decent hour of wrestling, but not necessarily the best episode of NXT we've seen.
Through the course of the hour, we picked up 5 interesting highlights from the show.
#5 Heel turn for top tag team?
There's absolutely no way one doesn't cheer for TM61. Thorne and Miller are two high flying superstars who put on a dazzling display of moves every time they step into the ring. So when we heard that they would be facing the Street Profits, we expected to watch a fair babyface vs. babyface contest. And then, seemingly the unthinkable happened.
Shane Thorne put his feet on the rope and cheated to win. Everyone in the arena was shocked by what had transpired before them. Did these crowd favorite babyfaces just pull off a heel tactic to clock a win in their record books?
It remains to be seen if this was a one-off, or if this will lead into a full-fledged storyline with TM61 going heel in coming weeks. We have a feeling it will be the latter.
