Welcome to Bleacher Report's preview for the July 17 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 will be week three out of the four-week block of shows taped at Full Sail University, so all of this happened some time ago.

The first match of the night will be a tag bout featuring The Vaudevillians taking on Colin Cassady and Enzo Amore.

While the Vaudevillians have had some decent ring time over the past couple months, the four men in this match are still relatively unknown to much of the WWE audience. This match will give them a chance to showcase the skills that got them to the WWE in the first place.

The second bout will see CJ Parker taking on Xavier Woods. Woods may not have that great of a record on the main roster, but he has seen some success in NXT.

Parker attacked Woods during last week's show to set up this match and it could be the start of a longer program between the two if WWE sees chemistry between them.

Parker is still proving himself to WWE fans, but Woods is someone most of the crowd knows has plenty of talent, so this could go either way.

The women of NXT take the third slot of the night with a singles match between Sasha Banks and Alexa Bliss. Banks no longer has Charlotte to help her out,  but she still seems to be a heel since she is facing a babyface Bliss.

Adam Rose will return to his old stomping ground in NXT to take on Jason Jordan. Seeing as Rose is not taking off on the main roster like many had hoped, it's no big surprise to see him back in NXT every few weeks.

Rose's gimmick does much better with the smaller, more intimate crowds of NXT, so he should see a happy homecoming.

Jordan, on the other hand, has been with WWE since 2011 when NXT was known as FCW, but he has never been used on a frequent basis. The outcome of this match seems pretty obvious.

The final match of the night is going to see Tyson Kidd battling with Sami Zayn. This is going to be the one that has people talking the next day.

Kidd has been slowly turning heel ever since he first came up short challenging for the NXT title, and while Adrian Neville is the champion, Zayn has also been a big part of this program.

Kidd's wife, Natalya, has even been a major part of the storyline, sometimes stopping her husband from using dirty tactics to win matches.

Kidd and Zayn both know how to take it to the mat, but their high flying abilities should not be overlooked. This is undoubtedly going to be one of the best NXT matches since Takeover.

Despite the fact that it's impossible to feature a lot of stars every single week with only one hour, NXT has been a consistently entertaining program and one any WWE fan should take the time to check out.

What are you looking forward to on this week's show?
