( - WWE NXT is exclusively shown on the WWE Network and is worth your time, energy and effort to see it. You can see that the WWE will be around for a long time because of the talent pool that is constantly showcased here.

NXT gave you 4 matches this week and this was a mediocre week by NXT standards.
