WWE NXT 6/20/2013 Results and Review

WWE NXT 6/20/2013 Results and Review

Last week's show is here:

Adrian Neville vs Bray Wyatt

"Strong competitor, good guy. He even brings his kids to the ring with him." - Brad Maddox on Bray Wyatt

Adrian Neville won in a quick match that was a waste of time when Harper pushed him off the ropes. They didn't get to do much here so I have no thoughts on this.

Harper and Rowan beat up Neville after then Ohno and Graves came down and made the save.

Dusty came down and made this one a 6-man for later.

Sami Zayn vs Angelo Dawkins

Sami Zayn got the win with his rope walk tornado DDT. Again, this was really quick. Zayn's finisher looked good and Dawkins brought the hurt with some nice forearms.

Zayn namedropped Cesaro after so that feud is still on.

They ran a package for the MIA Leo Kruger. I was wondering where he went.
"Some people call me strange. I say I'm just a person that requires a bit more understanding." - Leo Kruger

He said everything we know is about to change.

NXT Women's Championship Tournament - First Round - Summer Rae vs Sasha Banks

Due to the bracketing and WWE wanting face vs heel matches, there is almost no way Summer Rae doesn't make it to the finals.

Summer Rae got the win with her finisher above. Good match here. Summer was her usual good self and Sasha sold well, then fired up near the end to make this one really good. The crowd chanted her name and this was definitely her best match yet. This was short and fiery and that's the way I like it. Rating:***

"I'm Xavier Woods and you might remember me from such NXT episodes as Episode 141, Episode 145, Episode 155 where I beat El Local and Episode 157 where I beat El Local." - Xavier Woods

"Gotta go, Morphin' Time." - Xavier Woods
Woods said he would be returning.

Xavier Woods vs Jake Carter

Woods got the win with a Eat Defeat. This was all squash and wasn't bad. Woods has a ton of charisma, probably more than any of the male wrestlers on the roster and should be on the main roster. His gimmick is some kind of super fan of the 1990's and he likes to dance. Carter looked fine but he really needs a character. Any character. Too bad his team with Corey Graves ended.

Renee Young interviewed Sami Zayn.

Zayn said his match tonight was a message for Cesaro. He said they are 1-1 and need a 3rd round.

Sylvester Lefort was talking with his crew about a title match and Dusty popped in. He said it would be Sylvester's team vs Graves and Ohno in a #1 Contender's Match next week.

 Bo Dallas cut a promo from a car. He said he went to Disney World. He was really cheesy here and is now doing a gimmick where he is an overly fake face, which may work. He was goofy and called his fans the "Bolievers" and sang "Don't Stop Bolieving".

The Wyatt Family vs Kassius Ohno, Corey Graves and Adrian Neville

The Wyatt Family got the win after Adrian Neville missed his Red Arrow corkscrew SSP. Good match here with a nice pace to it. It wasn't too long and was a perfectly fine main. Ohno looked good here and gave one of his best performances yet.

Overall thoughts: Good edition of NXT. Not a classic but there was some solid stuff and I enjoyed the show.

  1. I think they said Woods' finisher is called "Lost in Woods"
