NXT 419 on the WWE Network:

Verdict: You had 4 matches in this episode leading up to NXT Takeover Houston.  This episode was entertaining.     

Episode tidbits

Mercedes Martinez gets a match with Ember Moon next week.

Kassius Ohno tells NXT General Manager William Regal that he wants a match with Lars Sullivan at NXT Takeover Houston and Regal gives him the match.

Zelena Vega says no one can beat the new and focused Andrade "Cien" Almas.  Drew McIntyre and Cien will have a face to face meeting next week.

Tino Sabatelli & Riddick Moss versus Street Profits next week.  

War Games vignette was shown to explain the history and the rules of the match.

Ruby Riot needs 2 to 3 weeks to recover from her ankle injury.  Sonya Deville blames Riot failure to tap from her ankle lock submission to why Sonya is not in the NXT Women's Championship match.  Riot asked for a match with Sonya when she does get healed up from her injury and Sonya agreed.

Match 1: Heavy Machinery beats Chris Pain and Sean Maluta (Match Grade: C+)

Too short of a match.  These big guys have talent.

Match 2:  Kairi Sane beats Billie Kay (Match Grade: C+)

This match had an expected flow.  Nothing new to report here.

Match 3: Velveteen Dream dominates Cezar Bononi (Match Grade: C+)

The Dream was all focus.  I thought he was going to hit the referee for trying to stop his domination!

Match 4: Adam Cole was disqualified when Undisputed ERA came to save their leader from Roderick Strong (Match Grade: C+)

The backbreaker from the top rope was the beginning of the end of this match.  A preview for NXT Takeover Houston War Games happened once Undisputed Era interfered.
