NXT presented a night of outstanding wrestling matches on the August 14 episode, capped off by a highly competitive heavyweight title bout between champion Adrian Neville and top contender Tyler Breeze.
The two elite NXT stars wowed the audience with a dramatic bout full of high-impact moves and dramatic nearfalls. Unfortunately, it was interference from Tyson Kidd that brought the contest to a screeching hault and created a plethora of questions surrounding the NXT Championship picture.
Earlier in the night, Bayley and Sasha Banks showed what women are capable of when given time to have a quality, competitive bout. They fought their hearts out for the opportunity to face Charlotte for the NXT Women's Championship in the near future.
Bayley won the match and stared the champion down after the bout, indicating that tensions between them are intensifying.
Tag team wrestling was again at the forefront as Sin Cara and Kalisto and The Vaudevillains advanced to the next round of competition, each hoping to challenge The Ascension's dominant reign atop the division.
With NXT Takeover 2 rapidly approaching, the card appears to be taking shape. Several Superstars heightened their profile within the brand and will look to play major roles on the September 11 broadcast.
