WWE NXT Results: Highlights, Analysis, and Grades for April 5

3 of 4


Heavy Machinery vs. The Bollywood Boyz

Result: Heavy Machinery defeated The Bollywood Boyz via pinfall.

Rating: Squash

Once upon a time, Harv and Gurv Sihra participated in the first-ever match on WWE 205 Live. They even won, but that was the last time anyone saw them on a main roster show. These two have since moved to NXT and have hardly been seen since.

Not so sure if the Bollywood Boyz were supposed to come into this as heels, but they received some heat from the fans during their entrance. Crowd sounds were either toned down or just completely quiet, but their microphone definitely seemed lower than usual.

The fans seem to like Heavy Machinery. They’re two big, goofy Superstars that kind of look larger than life, but have that everyday man’s look.

The team made up of Tucker Knight and Otis Dozovic are proving to be fun, while also having the ability to be taken seriously. With the Revival moving up, there’s plenty of room for them to make an impact.

Oney Lorcan Interview

Lorcan says he doesn’t know who his opponent is, but he’s here to win. Good to see him getting more air time over the past few weeks, although it hasn’t led to much.

More TakeOver Recap

The NXT Tag Team Championship match recap is shown from TakeOver. If you haven’t seen this yet, take about 20 minutes out of your Day to watch it.

The Authors of Pain Interview

Paul Ellering calls this a “vindication and confirmation” of the Authors of Pain. He says they proved themselves, and everyone is trying to slow down his guys. Ellering closes with WWE not being able to “stop destiny.”

Another TakeOver Recap

Bobby Roode vs. Shinsuke Nakamura highlights are shown. Roode won, Nakamura debuted on SmackDown Live, and all is right in the world.

Shinsuke Nakamura Video Package

We get an outstanding video package for Nakamura, highlighting his year-long run in NXT. He made an appearance at Wednesday’s TV taping, but it could have been a dark segment.
