It was also a far stronger debut than Dana Brooke received a few months earlier, as Nia clearly has more seasoning under her than Dana did at her debut. When she finished Evie with her finisher, a strange combination of spinebuster and Rock Bottom, she ended a match where she looked like a killer. And at six feet and two hundred pounds, the cousin of the Rock will immediately seem to take a dominant role in the women's division.
Bayley seemed to get her next top contender on NXT as well with Alexa Bliss making her presence felt. With that feud seemingly set, Nia Jax may be on the road to a match with another recent NXT debut in Asuka. That match has intriguing possibilities as Asuka has a style that should be great at cutting down a giant.
Also on NXT, Apollo Crews became the surprising new number one contender, even as fans seemed to turn on Samoa Joe in favor of Tyler Breeze. With the two seemingly entering a feud it will be interesting to see how the fans at Full Sail continue to develop that match, as well as the battle between the two babyfaces Apollo Crews and Finn Balor.
