( - 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 389 on the WWE Network:

Verdict: 3 matches and, yet again, still just a decent show.  This episode was highlighted by a WWE United Kingdom Championship match. 

Episode tidbits

Nikki Cross and Ruby Riot failed, TWICE, to get a match going!  They both savagely attacked each other, so expect a nice feud between these two in the near future.

NXT provided an insightful expose on the NXT star Roderick Strong.  It is aptly named, Who is Roderick Strong?" Part 1 was shown this week and was so well done, I am looking forward to Part 2 next week. 

Win, lose or draw, Mr. Cien will party with the ladies after his matches.  

There will be a royal rumble match for the Women next week to determine a #1 contender for the Women's Championship.

Match 1: Andrade "Cien" Almas taste defeat from Drew McIntyre (Match Grade: C+)

The match never really got energized.  The pace and necessary crowd attention grabber never manifested.  They both did okay but can do much better next time.

Match 2: Aleister Black wins solidly against Kona Reeves (Match Grade: C+)

I am still waiting to see Black get pushed by an opponent.  This match was kind of cool but needed to be longer.  I still need to know if Aleister has a solid chin and the stamina to go the distance in a match.

Match 3: Tyler Bate retains his WWE United Kingdom Championship against Jack Gallagher (Match Grade: B-)

This match showcased plenty of wrestler maneuvers and counter-maneuvers.  This match would have received a higher grade if the ending was a tad bit stronger.
