What caught our eye?

The Rhode Island show was said to be of a more consistent quality than Thursday night in Lowell, but without the big moments - although they did get an awesome FinNak team maneuver.

At the end of the night, Bálor was serenaded with a "See You Monday" chant. He talked about how much things had changed over the last 24 hours, and how the fans helped him bounce back from the loss. Shinsuke sent everyone home with a "We are NXT... YeaOH!"


Despite the lack of star power (which was again commented on by many Florida faithful), the news came out of Tampa...Athena's still using her stunner from the top!

TMDK set a record for quickest debut (maybe, I didn't actually look that up, so...)

Quickly tied by...

A double intermission in Tampa to replace the mat due to Tino bleeding all over it  was one of two "busted open" moments, the other happening with A-Ry in the main.

What's next?

This big names wrap up their Northeast trip in Poughkeepsie, New York, and a Florida crew heads to Jacksonsville.
