WWE NXT Review: Kevin Owens Defends NXT Championship Against Finn Balor

2 of 6


Sasha Banks vs. Alexa Bliss for the NXT Women’s Championship

Bliss pulled out a bunch of early pin atempts, trying to sneak out with an early victory against the champ, but none of them were successful.

Banks got in control of the match when she sent and followed Bliss into the corner, then kicked her in the face, when Bliss used the top rope for leverage, attempting a head-scissors.

Banks continued on offense, including the double-knee drop on the ropes. She kept on the offensive, despite a few more roll-up attempts by Bliss.

Bliss finally got a string of offense going, after countering a charge from Banks with a head-scissors takedown.

Bliss looked good, pulling out a backhand-spring/moonsault-type move. She went to the top to try and put Banks away, but Banks pulled her to the mat, and immediately locked in the Banks Statement for the win.

Banks defeats Bliss via submission.

3.25 out of 5 stars – Banks can go. Bliss can go.

I’ve been saying that Bliss has been improving for weeks now. I feel like a broken record, but I can’t possibly stress enough how far she has come.
