( - 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 444 on the WWE Network:

Verdict: You had 2 matches and a recap of an excellent NXT Takeover: New Orleans.  Also, because this was the episode after Wrestlemania, you were shown who was called up to RAW and SmackDown Live.

Episode tidbits

→NXT 443 is NXT Takeover: New Orleans, which is a MUST WATCH!  The recap from this event was shown throughout this episode.  Also, exclusive footage from the aftermath of the event was shown.

→Authors of Pain went to RAW and cut ties with Paul Ellering after their debut match.

→Ember Moon and No Way Jose also went to RAW.  Team Iconic went to SmackDown Live as "The IIconics."

→Lars Sullivan versus Kilian Dain next week.

Match 1: Kairi Sane survived against a gamed Lacey Evans. (Match Grade: C+)

Evans transition to a heel is complete.  Her in-ring mannerisms are excellent for the job.  The future of the women's division is safe and secure if these two ladies are true representatives of the industry.  Sane took a lot of damage before getting a win.

Match 2: No contest called between Heavy Machinery versus Tito Sabatelli & Riddick Moss thanks to the interference of a new tag team to NXT (Match Grade: C++)

Heavy Machinery was giving the crowd what they wanted, as usual, and you though this match would have a predictable end.  Out of nowhere a team called "War Raiders" came and destroyed both teams while the crowd chanted "War Machine."
