NXT Mini Review: 5/23/18.
Show kicked off with a tag match between Heavy Machinery & TM61. Heavy Machinery dominated most of the match, but TM61 would capitalize & win with a cheap pinfall victory! Always a great heel move, but like I said, TM61 need to do something other than showing a nastier side. More character development, lengthier matches, etc. (B)
Evans vs. Sane was good, they have some chemistry. Evans continues her path to success, taking out her rival, Kairi Sane, with a “Women’s Right” out of nowhere! There’s some people who think Sane should’ve won, but we need more top female stars in the NXT Women’s division. (B+)
Lars Sullivan vs. Dream/Ricochet: As Sullivan continues to gain momentum towards his NXT Championship match, Dream & Ricochet continue developing an intriguing story. Simple, but effective booking. They actually looked like a legit tag team, but of course Dream had to turn on his partner! (B+)
Johnny Gargano Returns: This has to be the rivalry of the year, I never lose interest in any of the segments these two are in. Tommaso got into Gargano’s head, he’s like manipulated him. But Gargano tried staying loyal to LeRae, who told him not to go in the ring, since Gargano is still not 100%. All of the superstars involved with the segment did amazing & overall, a strong conclusion to end the show!
Best Match: Sullivan vs Dream & Ricochet
