WWE NXT: Full Preview, Rumors and More for June 12

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.

This is the second week of WWE's typical four-week block of shows taped at Full Sail University. This episode will feature the fallout from last week's show as well as the continuing fallout from NXT Takeover.

Last week, we saw Tyson Kidd challenge Adrian Neville to a rematch from their incredible bout at Takeover. We also witnessed the NXT Women's champion, Charlotte, and her partner in crime, Sasha Banks, attack Bayley, but Emma and Paige were there to make the save.

This week, Bayley will attempt to get a little retribution against the BFFs when she teams with Emma and Paige to take on Charlotte, Sasha Banks and Summer Rae.

The funny thing about this is that Summer Rae appears to be playing a babyface on the main roster but continues to play a heel in NXT. Her feud with Layla is clearly designed to make Summer into the sympathetic heroine, but she is still her egotistical old self down in developmental.

All six women in this match have proved they have wrestling ability, but a six-woman tag match is usually not where we see memorable performances.

WWE uses six-person matches to feature as many people in one segment as it can, but it usually sacrifices match quality when it features so many people in the ring at once, except for situations involving The Wyatt Family or The Shield.

Colin Cassady will also be taking on Sylvester Lefort in singles action. We haven't seen either of these men since the No. 1 Contender's Battle Royal match on the May 8 episode, so they have to make the most of the time they have.

NXT being only one hour each week really limits how often it can feature certain people, and Lefort and Cassady have fallen victim to that fact.

Also in action will be fan favorite Sami Zayn. He will be taking on a masked challenger named Mr. NXT. The masked man is not someone new to WWE, but we will have to wait until the show to find out exactly who he is.

And finally, Adrian Neville will be taking on Tyson Kidd in a rematch from Takeover. Kidd will be accompanied by his wife, Natalya. They've had some tension in recent weeks, especially two weeks ago.

The match Kidd and Neville had at Takeover was outstanding, and they can hopefully pull off a repeat performance and make this a must-see episode of NXT.

The NXT roster is full of great performers who have been featured in prominent roles as of late, but some of the wrestlers who have been called up to the main roster in recent months have not lived up to the expectations set by their developmental runs.

Some of the top talent left in NXT will be on full display this week. What are you looking forward to seeing on this week's show?
