WWE NXT 7/17/2013 Results and Review

WWE NXT 7/17/2013 Results and Review

Last week's show is here:

#1 Contender's Match - Leo Kruger vs Antonio Cesaro vs Sami Zayn

Leo Kruger picked up the win after a Cesaro Neutralizer on Sami Zayn. Kruger grabbed Cesaro and threw him up to steal the pin. Fun match here. We got some neat spots, the crowd was into it and it just worked out well. The short time they got left you wanting more and it put all three guys over. Rating:***1/4

Scott Dawson vs Bo Dallas
Sylvester Lefort did the intro for Dawson, looking like a million bucks as always.
Regal said Dawson reminded him of an Anderson. No, not that overachieving goof Anderson in NJ or the underacheiving lazy Anderson in TNA.

Bo Dallas won with a botched hiptoss slam. This was just a quick squash. Leo Kruger attacked him after to a nice babyface pop.

"Thank you, Kruger." - The Fans
Bayley vs Charlotte
Charlotte is Ric Flari's daugther.

"I'm here to support her and she's here to show why she's the greatest Flair athlete of all-time." - Ric Flair

"Charlotte's Web!" - Tony Dawson

"C'mon baby." - Ric Flair
Charlotte won with a flipping cutter as shown above. Well, we have a new contestant for the Rookie of the Year. Charlotte looked pretty good here. She's athletic and can do some cool stuff due to her gymnastics background. She also looks imposing as she is tall and looks strong. The crowd was into her, though Flair was a bit of a distraction, but I'd say this was about as good of debut as any.

Sheamus got interviewed about a match he will have next week and was jumped by The Wyatt's.
"It takes only one stone to send a giant to his knees. Now you tell him I said, follow the buzzards." - Bray Wyatt

"Hello, my name is Tyler Breeze and in case you're wondering, of course I am a model." - Tyler Breeze, ripping off Rick Martel
"No no no, it's next week that NXT will witness gorgeous." - Tyler Breeze

NXT Tag Titles - The Wyatt Family vs Corey Graves and Adrian Neville

Neville got the win with the Red Arrow. This got good during Neville's comeback but it was still a Wyatt Family match and it has a limit onto how good it can be. The crowd was into this which helped and Neville was very good. Near the end, Bray interfered. Sheamus came down to stop him which led to the finish. Sheamus celebrated with the faces after.

Next week:

Overall thoughts: Good show. The main was fine, the opener was good and I liked the diva's match. This is worth a look.
