WWE NXT Review12.13.17 w/Justin C

Andrade “Cien” Almas w/Zelina Vega vs Fabian Aichner

Almas catches Aichner right after the bell with a dropkick. But Almas brags a bit too much so Aichner catches him with a backbreaker and follows it up with a springboard dive to the outside on Almas, then a springboard DDT coming back into the ring. Aichner hits a powerbomb back in the ring for two. Almas knocks Aichner to the outside off the top then tosses him into the steps, and follows it up with a hammerlock DDT for the win.

WINNER: Andrade “Cien” Almas- Aichner has a lot of potential and ability. For a man his size with his agility he could be a big star down the line. A nice little showing for him in this short match.

Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch vs The Authors of Pain

Burch and Lorcan corne both members of AOP early and land chops and bunches in the corner. But the AOP recover and hit duel Death Valley Drivers into the corner. They follow it up with the Super Collider for the win and the Last Chapter for the win.

WINNERS: Authors of Pain- Squash Match. I still think AOP is main roster bound sooner rather than later. There’s nothing left for them in NXT.

Ember Moon vs Peyton Royce

Peyton has a shirt on that says “I Love Billie” and Billie has a shirt on that says “I Love Peyton.” These two are awesome.

Ember sends Peyton to the outside with a head scissors then hits a weak looking dive to the outside. Ember throws Peyton into the ring but Billie distracts Ember, allowing Peyton to grab her in the ropes and choke her with her boot.

Back from break Ember catches Peyton with a spinning kick then a step up enziguri. Peyton catches Ember with a kick of her own and then a forearm for two. Ember ducks a kick then goes for a running Liger Bomb. Peyton holds the ropes so Ember lets her go but then stomps her down to the mat. Ember then hits the Eclipse off the top for the win.

WINNER: Ember Moon- The Iconic Duo also needs to find their way to RAW or Smackdown Live. But I doubt that happens any time soon with the recent callups.

After the match Billie Kay attacks Ember. Peyton joins in until Nikki Cross makes the save.

Fatal 4 Way #1 Contender Qualifer: Aleister Black vs Adam Cole

Black lands some arm and knee strikes to Cole as Cole bails out of the ring and Black does his trademark sit. Back from the commercial Cole applies a crossface to Black. Black eventually fights his way to the bottom rope. Cole tells Black to stay down and tells him his name is Adam Cole, BAY BAY.

Black is having none of that shit and starts kicking Cole. Black hits a forearm in the corner then hits a springboard moonsault. Cole drops Black on the ropes and goes to the top, but Black catches Cole with a kick to the head off the top. Cole recovers and hits an enziguri off his own then a backstabber for two.

Both men exchange strikes. Cole connects on a firemen’s carry for two. Black blocks a superkick then hits a bicycle knee and the Black Mass for the win.

WINNER: Aleister Black- Kind of odd seeing Black go over Cole clean. Match was short but both men showed enough that you know they can put together something special down the line.

Until Next Time,
