Winner and NEW NXT Womenís Champion- Charlotte ****1/4 ( This may be the best womenís match in WWE history. This was one of the most well executed technical matches Iíve seen in a WWE in some time. It was a war of attrition and all the little things added up to a classic contest. Bravo to both girls and the future of WWE womenís wrestling looks bright right now. )
The 411: NXT is two for two on awesome Network specials. This was an excellent show with the future of the WWE continuing to shine when given the opportunity. We got great performances from guys like Tyler Breeze and Adrian Neville and Sami Zayn continues to show that he needs to be called up to the main roster right now. The Women's match blew me away and Charlotte is going to be a huge star once she is fully polished and moves to the main roster. This is a must watch on the Network.
