NXT's second helping of The Great American Bash is now over. And while the first night of action last week was a full plate in and of itself, the second helping of festivities did not disappoint as the future of the yellow brand was reshaped by the stars and moments that will reverberate from this event.
Before we begin my top 5 takeaways from last night, let's take a look at one quick honorable mention...
Honorable Mention: Bronson too much for Nese
In a match with little build and not any real stakes, Bronson Reed beat Tony Nese in a short match up. Though Nese was the quicker of the two, he couldn't out muscle NXT's resident Thicc Boi and eventually fell to a giant splash from the Australian. I like this because Reed needed a win after his run in with the undefeated Karrion Kross two weeks ago, and it gives him some much needed momentum if he's going to be a player in NXT going forward. Tony Nese, a former NXT Cruiserweight champion, isn't really hurt by the loss either, as he's been up and down lately on 205 Live. This match would have broken into the Top 5 if there was a credible enough build, but overall this was solid.
Now, let’s get into the list!
