It’s no secret that NXT is great. As I mentioned in my first article for Deck.ie, it’s what’s gotten me watching professional wrestling again. And it’s why I kept my WWE Network even after “Free February” finished.
One of my favourite things about NXT is Finn Balor, AKA Fergal Devitt from Bray. He took on THE Brian Kendrick on NXT this week, and the highlights (and spoilers) are below. Don’t click on the video above if you don’t want spoilers
Besides some terrible commentary from Kevin Owens, it was a decent match. It was the kind of match whereby you knew Balor wasn’t going to lose – they have to keep his momentum going ahead of his bout with Owens after all. Interesting to see the likes of Kendrick and Rhyno in NXT. NXT hinted at a potential Rhyno v Balor match last week…
… which to me anyway would suggest that Balor will lose to Owens and go into a programme with Rhyno. It’ll be interesting to see how that develops.
