5 Points to Note from WWE NXT: Former Impact Wrestling star gets new name, Big challenge
Every week, I write this column to remind you that NXT is by far the best weekly television product that WWE serves us with. This week, I will have to say that under the guidance of Paul Heyman, RAW was the show-stealer.
That said, because RAW and indeed SmackDown Live is made up of individuals who've come up from the NXT system, one can still say that it was a win for NXT. And this does not mean that NXT TV was below-par at all, this week.
In this article, I shall identify 5 points from the show and elaborate on them all, in case you missed the show. If you did catch the show, let me know in the comments below what you did think of the overall proceedings.
Do you think that the Street Profits were called up to RAW far too soon?
#5 Trevor Lee is now Cameron Grimes, Shane Strickland is Isaiah 'Swerve' Scott
I love the NXT Breakout Tournament because it allows for the wealth of talent in the WWE Performance Center to be showcased in a tournament with some actual stakes on the line. Cameron Grimes, whom you may know as Trevor Lee from Impact Wrestling took on Shane Strickland, whom you may know as Killshot from Lucha Underground in a first-round match.
The two men put on a show to remember in a back and forth contest that I thought could have potentially been the best match of the entire night. I was also surprised to see Cameron Grimes pick up the big win considering that he was used as a jobber in Impact Wrestling, at least recently.
I wonder who's going to win the whole thing. And I also wonder who he will end up challenging.
