Last week's show is here: http://prowresblog.blogspot.com/2013/08/wwe-nxt-8282013-results-and-review.html
I did a podcast on this show here:
Bayley and Charlotte vs Alicia Fox and Aksana
|"The Hugplex" - Alex Riley|
|It seems Ric Flair's top rope prowess has been passed down to Charlotte|
|"So, Rusev, what are you going to do to Mason Ryan?" - Lefort|
|"Whoa, now that's what I'm talking about." - Lefort|
|"After you win, we make the money then we're going to Sizzler." - Lefort | "Sizzler? That's my favorite!" - Dawson|
Rick Victor was carrying a tag belt and they said it was because Victor stole it during the Graves attack last week.
|Anyone else think Victor and Neville look pretty similar these days?|
|"Summer Rae doesn't seem to know what an anti-diva is. It doesn't mean I want to be a cover girl, it means I'm here to cover other girls and win here in the ring." - Paige|
Mason Ryan vs Alexander Rusev
Leo Kruger was giggling like a school girl and apparently laid out Xavier Woods in the back.
Sami Zayn vs Jack Swagger
As for the match, it was pretty good and maybe Swagger's best ever. The crowd was absolutely nuclear for this match and one of the hottest crowds I've seen in a long time. They loved this one and ate it up. It was mostly Swagger hitting slams and working submissions with Zayn making small comebacks, which were all pretty good. He hit a great Yakuza kick in the corner and his selling of Swag's lariat was really good. Credit has to be given to the crowd though, because they made this one. Rating:***
Overall thoughts: There were two finishes that I didn't really get. However, Rusev/Ryan was good as was the main event. So basically, it had some good moments but some not so good moments as well. I think most people would like it though.
