WWE NXT- 5 Points to Note: Underdog almost upsets Champion, BrutaI backstage attack
I genuinely thought that this week's episode of WWE NXT was okay but not nearly as good as RAW and SmackDown Live. I suppose that when the main roster actually puts in the work and tells stories, they can put on pretty good sports entertainment spectacles.
While this was a departure from the norm, it does not mean that this week's episode of NXT was poor at all. There was a lot that I liked about it, and I will pick out 5 points to note, hand-picked for your reading pleasure.
In case you missed the show because of your busy schedule, you may just wish to peruse through this list and stay up-to-date with what's been happening. NXT will go to the USA Network soon, and things are bound to pick up when it does.
In fact, I have a feeling that next week's show will be much bigger than this one was.
#5 Shirai attacks LeRae
WWE is stacked with talent in the women's division. We all know this. But LeRae and Shirai are in a league of their own even with the high standards expected from the women of WWE, and they're elevating one another with an incredibly heated feud in NXT right now.
Io Shirai went heel not long ago, and since then has been on a tear displaying her mean and nasty side to the world. She would unleash an attack on Candice LeRae in the backstage area and surprisingly even be rewarded for her actions with a Number 1 Contender's match for the NXT Women's Championship. The other two contenders in the match are Bianca Belair and Mia Yim.
Will LeRae play a part in this match, spoling Io Shirai's chances? It does seem very likely indeed.
