5 Ups & 3 Downs From Last Night's NXT (Aug 5)

Pat's Entertainment!

Somehow, it's August.

While I'm not sure where the year or, by extension, my entire life is going, one thing we can all count on is NXT delivering two hours of pro-wrestling that is both highly entertaining, and largely unproblematic. Then there's me, a man who has never claimed to be either of those things, telling you all about it.

Loaded into the chamber for us this week is yet another threeway for a spot in TakeOver's increasingly tantalising ladder match, the prospect of a number 1 contender to the Women's Championship, and the bar for brutality being raised even further ahead of Kross and Lee's borderline bloodfeud.

Oh, and the small matter of Adam Cole and Pat McAffe's little e-spat being "resolved" by having the former American Footballer guest commentate the Undisputed Era's Tag-Team Championship main-event. I don't know about you, but I'm absolutely convinced that nothing could possibly go wrong in that scenario, and it'll be handshakes all around by the time we go off the air. If they'd let me put an emoji here, it would be a smiley face.
