NXT 11/15/17 Review: El Idolo Over The Chosen One

Published

on

NXT on November 15, 2017, was a good show that is building up NXT War Games this week. Let’s break it down:


We start off the show with Street Profits Vs. God-Gifted Athletes and it was a good tag team match. After these two teams been feuding with each other for the past two weeks, these two finally went head to head and they did well for themselves here.

God-Gifted Athletes got some nice offense on Street Profits as Riddick Moss hit a nice belly-to-back suplex on Montez Ford. Street Profits got to show their athletic ability in this match as the 360 stinger splashes from Street Profits on God-Gifted Athletes were cool to see. Good work from both teams here.

The ending of the match came when Angelo Dawkins hit a knockout punch on Tino Sabbatelli for the pin and win for his team. A great win for Street Profits as they’re looking to continue their momentum in the NXT Tag Team division.

Good tag team match and I’m interested to see if the feud between Street Profits and God-Gifted Athletes will continue or not.

We then get a video package of the feud between Aleister Black and Velveteen Dream and it was good. Nice to see this feud and match getting a video package as this feud has been building up for months now. Should be a great match and I’m looking forward to it.

Just a reminder that Executioner’s Tax (Swing of the Ax) by Power Trip is a theme for NXT War Games and it’s a good song. NXT War Games is this week and I can’t wait for the show. It should be great.

Raul Mendoza Vs. Lars Sullivan was a good squash match. This was a good squash match for Lars Sullivan that gets him ready for Kassius Ohno at NXT War Games.

Raul Mendoza got a little bit of offense on Lars Sullivan, but Lars Sullivan was too much of Raul Mendoza as Lars Sullivan finished him off with the waist-lift side slam for the pin and win. A good win for Lars Sullivan as he’s ready to face Kassius Ohno at NXT War Games.

After the match, Lars Sullivan was about to beat up Raul Mendoza some more until Kassius Ohno came in as Lars Sullivan let go of Raul Mendoza. Both men then had a staredown against each other until Lars Sullivan left the ring while laughing at Kassius Ohno.

It seems like Lars Sullivan isn’t taking Kassius Ohno seriously at the moment, but I have a feeling that Lars Sullivan will find out the hard way of how tough Kassius Ohno is at NXT War Games.

Good squash match and good post-match as I’m interested to see how Kassius Ohno Vs. Lars Sullivan will turn out at NXT War Games.

The backstage segment between William Regal and Johnny Gargano was good. William Regal was in his office talking to an interviewer until Johnny Gargano came in and told William Regal that he knows that he belongs here and wants to prove it to him. William Regal then told Johnny Gargano that he does belong here and he believes that Johnny Gargano can do it as he offered Johnny Gargano a match against Pete Dunne for the WWE United Kingdom Championship next week as Johnny Gargano accepted the challenge.

Alright, we got ourselves a match for next week’s show with Pete Dunne Vs. Johnny Gargano for the WWE United Kingdom Championship. That should be an awesome match and I can’t wait to see it. Good backstage segment here.

We then get a video package of the feud between SAnitY, Roderick Strong & Authors of Pain, and Undisputed Era and it was great. These three teams have been feuding with each other for months now and it will finally come to a head at NXT War Games in War Games. It should be great.

Just a reminder that Play by Marmozets is a theme for NXT War Games and it’s a good song. NXT War Games is this week and I can’t wait for the show. It should be great.

Ember Moon Vs. Mercedes Martinez was an excellent women’s match. Mark out moment! This was an excellent match that is helping build up Ember Moon for the NXT Women’s Championship at NXT War Games.

Mercedes Martinez did excellent in this match as she tried to prove that Ember Moon can’t win big matches. Her chops to Ember Moon looked painful as heck. Her running top rope cutter on Ember Moon looked devastating. Excellent work from Mercedes Martinez here.

Ember Moon did excellent in this match as well to show Mercedes Martinez that she can win big matches. Her suicide dive through the bottom rope on Mercedes Martinez to the outside was impressive. Excellent work from Ember Moon here.

The ending of the match came when Ember Moon hit The Eclipse (Diving corkscrew stunner) on Mercedes Martinez for the pin and win. A great win for Ember Moon as she’s looking strong heading into the NXT Women’s Championship match at NXT War Games.

After the match, Nikki Cross came out and stood at ringside while staring at Ember Moon as Peyton Royce came out on the ramp and Kairi Sane came out on the stage as all women stared at each other.

All the women in the NXT Women’s Championship match are looking strong heading into NXT War Games, but only one woman can walk out as NXT Women’s Champion. I think Ember Moon is the woman to do that, but we’ll see at NXT War Games.

Excellent women’s match and good post-match as I’m interested to see how the NXT Women’s Championship at NXT War Games will play out.

We then get an announcement that next week, it will be Pete Dunne Vs. Johnny Gargano for the WWE United Kingdom Championship and Ruby Riot Vs. Sonya Deville. Both matches should be interesting to watch next week. Looking forward to them.

The face-to-face segment between Drew McIntyre and Andrade “Cien” Almas was great. Drew McIntyre came out to the ring and said that Andrade “Cien” Almas’ plan or Zelina Vega’s plan has worked as he now has an NXT Championship match against him at NXT War Games. He then said that Andrade “Cien” Almas should try to face him man-to-man in order to prove something to himself unless Zelina Vega is holding his leash on him.

This led to Zelina Vega coming out where Andrade “Cien” Almas eventually came out as he ran to the ring and brawled with Drew McIntyre. Drew McIntyre got the better of Andrade “Cien” Almas until Zelina Vega tried to hit a diving crossbody on Drew McIntyre, but caught her and let her go. Andrade “Cien” Almas then hit Drew McIntyre with a chop block followed by a Hammerlock DDT as he stood tall over Drew McIntyre as Zelina Vega hold the NXT Championship and told Andrade “Cien” Almas that this championship is his until they left the ring.

Andrade “Cien” Almas has gotten the better of Drew McIntyre for weeks and I expect Drew McIntyre to give Andrade “Cien” Almas everything he has at NXT War Games. Should be a great match and I can’t wait to see it.

Great face-to-face segment as I’m looking forward to Drew McIntyre Vs. Andrade “Cien” Almas for the NXT Championship at NXT War Games.

Overall, a good show that is building up NXT War Games this week. Next week, we will get Pete Dunne Vs. Johnny Gargano for the WWE United Kingdom Championship and Ruby Riot Vs. Sonya Deville which should be interesting to see. Looking forward to it. NXT! NXT! NXT!
