WWE NXT: Full Preview, Rumors and More for August 14

Welcome to Bleacher Report's preview for the August 14 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 block of shows taped last month. After this, there is one more block of three shows before the next live NXT special, Takeover 2.

Thursday's show is scheduled to feature four matches. Like last week, this is a bit of a lighter card than NXT typically puts on, meaning longer bouts for those who are lucky enough to be featured.

The first match of the night will be another in the tournament to find new No. 1 contenders for the Tag Team Championships.

Bull Dempsey and Mojo Rawley will be teaming up to take on Simon Gotch and Aiden English, better known as The Vaudevillians.

Rawley and Dempsey seem like they were thrown together just for the sake of this tournament, but Gotch and English have been partnering together for a little while now. This up-and-coming duo could very well be the next tag team champions.

How long until The Ascension is on the main roster?

The night's second contest will be another to help determine a title contender, but this time it will be for the NXT Women's Championship.

Bayley will be taking on Sasha Banks in a No. 1 Contender's match. Bayley and Banks have some bad blood going back quite a while, but Banks has to face the angry cheerleader alone since she chose to dump Charlotte and disband their team.

Both of these women have a lot of potential. Banks has been in the wrestling business for four years, and Bayley is a six-year veteran. This should be an entertaining match.

Match No. 3 will be another tag team bout in the No. 1 Contender's tournament featuring Sin Cara and Kalisto taking on Wesley Blake and Buddy Murphy.

Everyone is familiar with Sin Cara and Kalisto, but Murphy and Blake are two men who have had little to no exposure on WWE's developmental brand. Even if they lose this bout, this is a great opportunity for Blake and Murphy to show their skills.

Blake has only had three matches on NXT television, all of which he's lost, and Murphy has done even less. Hopefully they have a chance to impress some people backstage.

The evening's final bout will be the long-awaited NXT Championship match between Adrian Neville and Tyler Breeze.

Breeze won his title shot all the way back at the first live Takeover special, but a hand injury has kept him on the sidelines until very recently.

Breeze and Neville are two of the most exciting talents in NXT. They've built this feud up very well over the past several weeks, so their match on Thursday should be very entertaining.

There are some good-looking bouts scheduled for this week. What are you looking forward to on this episode of NXT?
