WWE NXT: Full Preview, Rumors and More for May 15

Welcome to Bleacher Report's preview for the May 15 episode of NXT on the WWE Network. Spoilers are already out there, but if you want to know what will happen without having the matches spoiled for you, you're in the right place.

This week will feature the third show taped during the last round of TV tapings, and four matches round out the card. The videos included will either highlight previous matches or previous moments the Superstars have had.

This could be a good sign for this week's episode. NXT is known for packing shows with too many matches, leaving little time for each bout to be memorable.

The first match we will see this week is another match in the tournament to crown a new NXT Divas champion.

Charlotte will be facing Alexa Bliss in a second-round match to see who goes on to the finals of the tournament. Both women have notable skills in the ring, so this could end up being one of the best matches we see in the tournament.

Mojo Rawley, WWE's resident hyperactive character that reminds everyone of that one annoying five-year-old they know, will be taking on Aiden English, a man who does not show nearly the same level of enthusiasm for his matches.

Rawley is one of those wrestlers who is hard to gauge in terms of his chances of making it to the main roster. English is someone who has more potential simply because his style and gimmick seem to be more what WWE is looking for right now.

Hopefully they can produce a good match that highlights both men's stronger attributes.

We will see Big Cass take on Angelo Dawkins in the third match of the night. Neither one of these men is very high up on the NXT ladder right now, so that means they will be looking to impress.

When you only have a little bit of time across four weeks of tapings, you have to put your best foot forward. These guys need to do something to let the WWE Universe know they exist. Perhaps they will accomplish that in this match.

Lastly, the main event will feature a Triple Threat match between the three men who were all eliminated at the same time in last week's Battle Royal to crown a new No. 1 contender to the NXT Championship.

Tyson Kidd will be taking on Tyler Breeze and Sami Zayn, two men who have yet to have that main roster push like Kidd has already had.

These are three men who will be able to tear the house down with their high-flying styles and risk-taking tendencies if they have enough time to make the match look good.

If you ever wanted a reason to watch NXT, this is as good as any. Everyone knows how good Kidd is in the ring, but if you haven't seen Breeze or Zayn, you are in for a treat.

Breeze has been kicking around the developmental system in WWE for four years, and he has shown moments of brilliance throughout his run.

Zayn is better known to some as El Generico, a world-traveling wrestler with a decade of experience entertaining fans.

This week's show doesn't feature any of the actual champions in NXT, but it will feature several wrestlers who are in matches with future title shots on the line. It should be a good show.

What are you looking forward to seeing on NXT this week?
