WWE NXT Preview – Nov 28, 2018
After an atrocious episode of Monday Night Raw and a solid episode of Smackdown Live, we get to what’s always a high point of my week – NXT. As a little introduction, it’s absolutely insane to see the kind of card NXT can throw together while not touching upon their most recent PPV. What can I be talking about? Only one way to find out!
As always, a recap of last weeks episode.
- Keith Lee defeats a jobber.
- Lars Sullivan defeats a separate jobber. Keith Lee saves said separate jobber from getting beat up more by Lars.
- Nikki Cross defeats Candice LeRae.
As Jay-Z said multiple times in his classic song “On to the next one”, on to the next one! As always, I’m Parker Love – here with your weekly NXT Preview!
The Main Event
Time to see some big guys hit each other a lot! After saving a jobber last week and pouncing future free agent Lars Sullivan out of the ring, we’re gonna see Keith Lee take on Lars Sullivan in tonight’s presumed main event. Lars does work great in a hoss fight – his no DQ match with Killian Dain was just fantastic, and Lee can always hold his own in a match.
The Limitless one needs either a signature win or a signature feud in NXT to get himself some momentum. A win – or a feud – with soon-to-be main roster free agent Lars would accomplish either of those things. Expect a fun match-up tonight.
Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch take on The Mighty in what should be a fantastic tag team wrestling match. Now, the only question will be – who will piss on whose robe?
Wait sorry, this week has been rough.
Even though the Mighty have had their stock drop in the last little bit, they’re still fantastic. Burch & Lorcan are also fantastic. Hence, I believe this match will be great. Honestly, I hope to see the Brit-am brawlers head over to NXT UK to get a bit more exposure there. Who wouldn’t want to see them take on Mustache Mountain?
EC3 returns to action tonight for the first time since taking on Adam Cole. His opponent? None other than Marcel Barthel. I’m legitimately curious as to what’s next in NXT for Mr Carter the Third. I’m not sure he’ll get a push to the NXT Championship, or even the North American Championship. The man is ready for the main roster, and if rumours are true, was set for a callup before suffering a concussion. But, regardless – we’re here & he will wrestle tonight.
Mia Yim takes Vanessa Bourne, and it doesn’t take rocket appliances to figure out who’ll win here. One interesting note, Bourne has been involved with Kona Reeves in the house show circuit. Yes, the Kona Reeves who has his issues with Keith Lee – Yim’s new significant other. Mixed Tag? Potential Mixed Tag!
Odds & Ends
- These WWE PC Youtube videos are absolutely fantastic.
- Nothing has changed with regards to the respective champs. One thing to note, though, is that War Raiders are still very likely to demand another shot at The Undisputed Era. Will we see any development tonight?
- A huge addition to WWE UK brand with the signing of WALTER. Seriously, he’ll be a star for them; he’s up there with Pete Dunne for the biggest UK names in my opinion.
