Finn Balor and Shinsuke Nakamura vs Samoa Joe and Austin Aries

Balor and Nakamura Win

My Family actually borough me a ticket for this show for my 30th Birthday and It was a great birthday present. I was really looking forward to seeing Shinsuke Nakamura as I'd been a fan sine seeing him in NJPW and wanted to se him up close.  

I was at NXT Cardiff in 2015 so this is my 2nd NXT show

Here's some notes from me on the show

I thought this was a tremendous show it was nice to see some new talent and to get to see some more of recently introduced talent like Andrade Cien almas.

I was pleased to see new established talents like Bobby Roode and Austin Aries. Roode was great to see and he had a fun and entertaining match with No Way Jose.

Roode did a good job of getting the crowd to hate him, especially as they were cheering him so much to begin with. Talents like Roode and Aries will be the solid performers that carry NXT forward in this New NXT Era

No Way Jose made people laugh, he was entertaining and he was pure fun, you need that and he looks very comfortable doing what he's doing will be interesting to see what they do with him and develop No Way Jose.

Tye Dillinger was great on the mic and he is fast becoming one of NXT homegrown success stories. He played the crowd so well and his line of "I'm a perfect 10, I don't associate with mediocre 3's" he really seems to know his character well and where he is going with it, I think he will be a big time player in NXT going forward.

Andrade Cien Almas I was very impressed with and as I said before he and Ty Dillinger worked together so well.

All the ladies match were fantastic tag team match had a great dynamic with lots of chants for Bayley and Carmella. Interesting seeing Peyton Royce on what happens with her going forward. Alexa Bliss is someone I think we could see a lot more of in NXT Women's title picture, she really knows how to make people hate her.

American Alpha and The Revival were both Consistently Brilliant, another rollercoaster match . No Pun intended but these two teams are reviving tag team wrestling, fans were really into it, and it shows that you get two cohesive teams that want to have the best natch possible what can be achieved, I have no idea how their feud will end but I cant wait to see it.

Balor and Nakamura as a team vs Aries and Samoa Joe as a wrestling fan I thought Id never see this match over a year ago (roughly) with Joe and Aries being in TNA and Nakamura in NJPW just shows how quickly things can change, Nakamura entrance is truly something tremendous to see and his style and charisma is unreal.

Balor was interesting again during his entrance he pointed to the Club on his titantron and did the too sweet sign a lot, also something of note, he did the "suck it" pose too during his match, maybe Balor Club is coming? or is Balor joining another club?

Overall this was well worth seeing if you didn't go, make sure you do when they come back, well worth the money  and a fantastic birthday present for me.
