WWE NXT: Full Preview, Rumors and More for June 26

Welcome to Bleacher Report's preview for the June 26 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 final week of the four-week block of shows WWE taped last month. Unfortunately for us, it's not a show packed with many must-see matches.

However, NXT has been surprising a lot of people with the quality of the performances they put on, and let's be honest, Renee Young's various segments and William Regal's commentary is enough reason to tune in.

Six bouts are going to be packed into a one-hour show, with two of them featuring local jobbers instead of NXT talent. Thankfully, the main event is definitely going to be something special.

In tag team action, The Vaudevillians (Aiden English and Simon Gotch) will be taking on two unknown wrestlers. As a new tag team, they need wins, but beating two guys we know will never be seen again is not exactly going to put them in line for a title shot.

In a classic WWE mismatch, the bruiser, Bull Dempsey, will be taking on the much smaller Xavier Woods. Dempsey is a throwback to the brawlers of days past, while Woods wrestles a much more devil-may-care style.

What is Summer Rae?

This could be an entertaining match if they have more than a few minutes, but with five other matches on the card, that may not be possible.

The NXT Divas are also in action, with Summer Rae taking on Becky Lynch. WWE audiences are familiar with very Summer Rae at this point, but Lynch is going to be unknown to a large majority of the crowd.

For those who follow the independent scene, Becky Lynch used to be known as Rebecca Knox. She is a veteran who has more than 10 years under her belt in the wrestling business, including time spent in Japan and her home country of Ireland.

Lynch has also appeared in some American and Canadian promotions as well, including SHIMMER and New England Championship Wrestling. We all know that Summer is capable of some impressive feats in the ring, so it will be interesting to see who comes out on top.

Colin "Big Cass" Cassady will also be in action this week, taking on another unknown local talent, likely giving him and easy and quick victory.

Cassady was trained by WWE Hall of Famer Johnny Rodz. His last victory came a couple of weeks ago against Sylvester Lefort, but I have included a video of him facing Bo Dallas so those unfamiliar with him can see what he is capable of.

This might not sound like a card worth tuning in for, but the main event is definitely going to be a match to watch. NXT champion, Adrian Neville will be taking on Rob Van Dam in a non-title match.

Neville is known as "The Man Gravity Forgot" and RVD's high-flying exploits are legendary in the wrestling business. This is almost a dream match for many fans.

This could very well end up being the best NXT match since the highly successful NXT Takeover event that occurred last month. Sitting through the less-thrilling matches to get to this gem will almost definitely be worth it.
