Freshness was the theme of the June 26 episode of NXT, as new faces and stories dominated the undercard while one of the most decorated stars of the last 20 years put over the brand's top star in a highly competitive main event.
Rob Van Dam, one of the most exciting and breathtaking stars of the 2000s, took on this generation's answer to Mr. PPV when he met NXT champion Adrian Neville in the night's marquee match. As he has done with several young stars on the main roster, Van Dam put Neville over clean. It is, arguably, the biggest win of Neville's career and one that helps prove he is ready to mix it up with the top stars in the business.
Newcomer Becky Lynch capitalized on the continued tension and dissension among the BFFs, as she knocked off Summer Rae in singles competition. An experienced ring worker and a double-tough Irishwoman, Lynch made an instant impact and let Women's champion Charlotte know that there are plenty of contenders gunning for her title.
Enzo Amore made his triumphant return to NXT, helping longtime partner Colin Cassady chase away Marcus Louis and Sylvester Lefort, setting up what should be a rivalry to determine the next contenders to the Ascension's NXT tag team titles.
With another fun, entertaining and potentially game-changing episode of NXT in the books, here is a look back, with grades, analysis and highlights of the June 26 broadcast.
