The Finn Balor appearance was kind of meh to be honest but if you’re a big Finn Balor fan then I can see why it’d be exciting to see him back on NXT. Was more excited by Ciampa’s return at the end. Pete Dunne/Damian Priest will be interesting.

The matches were good, probably wouldn’t say any were outstanding. Cole/Riddle will be most people’s pick of the bunch but I preferred the tag match at the end.

Overall a good/very good show without anything to really complain about and most importantly it created excitement moving forward. Walter v. Kushida confirmed for next week as well. They need to build up a credible threat to Shayna’s title though. Maybe Asuka will be drafted to NXT…? That would be lovely.

I would love to see Asuka and Kairi both back in NXT as they are lost on the main roster. As for Shayna I think Ripley is the current contender of note.
