WWE NXT: Full Preview, Rumors and More for June 5

Welcome to Bleacher Report's preview for the June 5 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.

After a special two-hour event last week, WWE is back to doing several tapings all at once. This will be the first show out of four weeks that were just recently taped at Full Sail University.

This episode will deal with all the fallout from Takeover, which saw a new NXT Women's champion crowned and both the Tag and NXT champions retain their titles.

This week will feature the hyperactive Mojo Rawley taking on Aiden English. Rawley took a beating from Rusev at Takeover, so this is his chance to bounce back and show everyone that he has a future in WWE.

We will also see Charlotte, fresh off her victory over Natalya, taking on NXT's resident cheerleader, Bayley. If you remember back in 2013, it was actually at the cost of Bayley that Charlotte turned heel.

Bayley never really got her revenge on Charlotte for turning on her during a tag match, so this will be the showdown Bayley has been waiting months to have.

Jason Jordan and Tye Dillinger will be in tag team action taking on two local jobbers. This will likely be a short match just to give Dillinger and Jordan and easy win.

Tyler Breeze will be also in the house to address his new status as the No. 1 contender for Adrian Neville's title. He had an outstanding match with Sami Zayn at Takeover to win his title shot and you can expect the king of selfies to milk every second of this until his title shot.

Speaking of Adrian Neville, the night's main event will see the NXT champion taking on the former partner of the man he defeated at Takeover, Justin Gabriel.

Gabriel is just as capable as Neville of hitting all the high-flying moves that get the crowd on their feet, so this will probably be a match filled with several high spots and big risks.

NXT always manages to produce at least one good match every week, but they are going to have to do more than that to get fans to watch. Takeover was a great showcase of the talent NXT has within its ranks, but that was just a handful of Superstars who make up the roster.

It's up to the rest of the roster to prove every week until the next NXT special that they deserve to be featured in a more prominent role.

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