Previously on the Best and Worst of WWE NXT: NXT TakeOver Colon Toronto happened, and then we took a week off. But don’t worry, we’re still in Canada so nothing that happens between TakeOver and Full Sail really matters.

And now, the Best and Worst of WWE NXT for November 30, 2016.
If you missed last week’s episode (as we did, because of Thanksgiving), it was the now traditional NXT TakeOver: Dark Matches show that follows TakeOver. And aside from Daria Berenato taking an O-Face sideways, all you missed was Sanity attacking everyone.
The show opened with future Cruiserweight Champion Rich Swann wrestling Kona Reeves — yes, a Hawaiian Keanu Reeves — and Sanity running in to attack them both. No Way Jose shows up to stick up for his CWC/NXT tag team partner and challenges Eric Young. That happens for a few minutes until Sanity attacks them. The reason I wanted to point this out here is because it leads directly into this week’s rematch, with Jose taking on Young again. Quick, guess what happens!
Jose has the match won with his … elevated punch? What’re we calling that? But yeah, Jose hits Young with the pop-up pop-you-in-the-face and Nikki Cross jumps on the apron to distract the referee. That allows Young a moment to recover, and he’s able to hit Jose from behind and put him away with his wheelbarrow neckbreaker.
