What an episode of NXT this week was, it started out with a vicious attack by Samoa Joe after he called out NXT champion Shinsuke Nakamura and said once he was medically cleared to fight he was going to challenge him for the title again since he already had a rematch clause in his contract. Then you had a women’s division match where Liv Morgan faced off against a local enhancement talent named Rachel Fazio, then Liv surprise people by challenging Asuka for the women’s championship, to the comments of Asuka clearing out the women’s division of NXT.
Dream match alert Drew Gulak vs Hideo Itami was a match that i was excited to see happen in NXT, I wish WWE would sign Gulak so that can be a feud that could lead to a NXT championship feud. This match was hard hitting how i like dream matches to be, But in the end I knew that Hideo Itami would come out victorious by hitting the Go To Sleep. Then you saw pure domination happen on NXT when The Authors of Pain lead by legendary manager Paul Ellering as they took on two local talent that didn’t even have their names on the show this week that how fast and brutal the beatdown was.
Tye Dillinger talked about how he is still a Perfect Ten after his rough summer was with losing some matches and winning some matches. The main event of the week was The Glorious one himself Robert Roode facing off against the Latin Sensation No Way Jose. that match took me by Surprised because I thought Jose would have gone back to how he was before his feud with Austin Aries, but no that feud evolved him into a different side of him in the ring and that side was out during his match against Roode where he almost picked up the victory, but he lost to Roode’s Glorious Impaler DDT.
Yesterday was also the finals of the WWE CWC, we saw TJ Perkins win the Cruiserweight Classic and he became Cruiserweight Champion, that was an historic event because TJ Perkins was also in Impact Wrestling where he held the X Division championship which is an equivalent to the cruiserweight style championship.
My reaction to the finals of the CWC was that Kota Ibushi and Zack Sabre Jr who people said that were the final two just proved that they were wrong when TJ Perkins and Gran Metalik were the final two of the tournament.
