Paige could be on the main roster today if she still wasn't underage. I liked her old lift ddt better though.
Big E Langston is a one-tune song, a one trick pony. I could see NXT putting the title on him as he seems to be the most over talent, but he needs to expand in-ring from squashes. I don't know if he'll have a long wwe career though given Henry will tower over him, as will other muscled up bigs like Ezekiel Jackson and Mason Ryan.
I like Bronson in-ring, but his character/backstory is lacking IMO. I think an ex-con gimmick would work better than an mma streetfighter. Needs to work on his look a bit, better ring gear to look more professional-level. Hoodie and esp the thumbs down pose could be trademarks of his if he ever gets to the wwe and gets over.
Mike Dalton is the Ziggler of NXT in that he can make anybody look good. Harper looked much better this week, and Wyatt in the rocking chair was a great visual.
Ohno vs Steamboat was a good match, the cravate-plex was badass. I like how Kassius is being billed as a very smart guy, it's a little different from the "he's demented and just liked to hurt people" heels that NXT seems to have too much of - Kruger, Wyatt/Harper, and Bronson alone on this one episode.
