WWE NXT TV Report: Adrian Neville vs. Corey Graves 2 of 3 falls



Emerson Witner

Before we begin, this is your weekly reminder that over on WrestleCrap.com, I go into the way-back machine and discover legendary moments in 140 characters of less for Epic Tweets In Wrestling History.

After taking a week or two break, Tensai has returned to the announce desk with Byron Saxton and William Regal.

The BFFs defeated Charlotte & Bayley

The match started with Bayley bringing headbands over to Sasha and Summer, but the BFFs turn their noses up and tossed them aside. Not mentioned is how last week the BFFs brought Bayley a head band. The fans were so into Charlotte that they wanted Bayley in the ring instead. Bayley tagged in and ran wild on both Summer and Sasha. She jumped up and down in celebration, so Summer cut her off with a Big Ass Lariat.

Bayley got her ass kicked for literally many minutes, but finally hit the Belly to Bayley Suplex and went for the hot tag....but Charlotte slapped her across the face! Charlotte then gave Bayley her flipping neck breaker doo hickey and allowed Sasha to pin her for the win. Charlotte celebrated with her new gal pals after the match. Not sure why she bothered to beat on them at the beginning of the match.

-Backstage Aiden English was going through his vocal exercises.

Aiden English pinned Camacho

Hey, look who's back: Haku Jr, who hasn't been seen in a very long time. Last time he was on NXT, he needed five thousand dollars to get Hunico out of Mexico and if you read spoilers for Man Event, you'll know he finally got it.

Aiden is actually several inches taller than Camacho and I always thought Camacho was deceptively tall. So I don't know if Aiden is just taller than he looks or Camacho is much smaller than he looks. Camacho got in plenty of offense until Aiden suddenly hit the Director's Cut for the win.

Backstage, Lana talked to Alexander Rusev in Bulgarian. They went through the hassle of hanging the Bulgarian flag up over the NXT interview set.

NXT Champion Bo Dallas returns from his World Tour next week!

Mason Ryan pinned Danny Birch

I remember the good old days of Mason Ryan feuding with Enzo and Colin, including Mason calling the Anderson Silva-Chris Weidman finish days before it happened. Anyhoo, this was a step above a squash match as Danny got in some token offense before the former member of Nexus came back and finished Birch with the Cobra Clutch Slam.

A video package aired for Emma, which was an excuse for my weekly Emma Dance. The only thing pushed for next week is the Bo Dallas Homecoming. Do you really need anything else?

Adrian Neville took 2 out of 3 Falls from Corey Graves

Corey snapped because him and Adrian were unable to win the tag titles back from Ascension. Of course not mentioned is Corey basically walked out on Adrian during their match. Two weeks ago Corey cleanly pinned Adrian, which made Adrian mad because Corey went after his legs. Oh boo hoo.

The first fall went 90 seconds with Neville winning with the Red Arrow. I was half expecting Graves to win before the last commercial break 2 minutes later, but shockingly he didn't. But before we went to Jack Donaghy talking about the Capital One Venture Card Neville got shoved off the apron and twisted his knee on the floor! Can he continue to wrestle? OMG! What will happen!?!?!?!

To the absolute shock and awe of everyone, Neville continued to wrestle. I was very nervous, knowing that there was still ten more minutes of internet time remaining that the main event would just end.

Corey gives a shout out to Lance Storm with a Half Crab. Corey mustn't have been paying attention during Lance Class as Neville was able to get out of the move. Since using the submission of someone else wasn't working, Graves tackled Neville's knee and locked on Lucky 13 for the submission.

The third fall consisted of the announcers talking constantly about how Neville can't fly and how he doesn't stand much of a chance is either going to give away the finish or make him look pretty week in a paragraph of two.

Neville climbed to the top...and nearly fell right on top of his fucking head. Okay he should not be doing that ever again. Graves slapped on Lucky 13 and the announcers demanded he crawl for the ropes, the fans demanded he reached the ropes...so Neville tapped out? No, just joking, he got the ropes. Graves went for it again, but Neville got the win with a small package.

That does it for this week. From deep in the heart of Orlando by way of the southeastern tip of Massachusetts, I bid you a fond adieu until next week!
