Hideo Itami(KENTA) vs. Justin Gabriel
Baron Corbin vs. CJ Parker
Adrian Neville & Sami Zayn vs. Titus O'Neil & Tyson Kidd
The face looks the part, but steen was released and the gimmick (at least what I think it is) seems odd for steen

I know about his reputation and some of his history (had a notable run on the indies and teamed with Ambrose early in their careers), but what's his in-ring style like?
I haven't seen this week's NXT, but based on what I've seen of him, admittedly not very much, he seems to have a rather awkward style that doesn't seem like it will work well in WWE. He also looks like a human Troll doll.
PWInsider wrote:>PWInsider.com has confirmed with multiple sources that NXT has a hold with the 2300 (formerly ECW) Arena in Philadelphia, PA for two dates, Friday 5/15 and Saturday 5/16.
>It would only be the second time WWE has run the legendary independent wrestling venue as the inaugural house show from WWE's 2006 revival of ECW was held there, headlined by Rob Van Dam vs. Kurt Angle with Dean Malenko as the guest referee and Tommy Dreamer vs. The Big Show on top.
>Around that same time period, WWE also looking into the idea of purchasing the historic venue with the idea of converting it into a permanent training center and home for the new ECW, although that idea never got past the initial talking stages.
>The timing of the NXT shows would make the Arena the capital for professional wrestling that week as New Japan Pro Wrestling and Ring of Honor are running the venue on Tuesday 5/12 and Wednesday 5/13. The Wednesday event is already sold out and the Tuesday event is well on it's way.
>Triple H announced during a media conference call prior to the WWE NXT Takeover Rival special on the WWE Network that he intended to take NXT and make it a regular touring brand following it's incredible success with live events in Ohio that sold out almost immediately with no promotion beyond social media.

Maybe it's just the timing of it being right after the NJPW/ROH shows but it kind of feels like WWE is targeting in on the indies or something, and I'm not sure how to feel about it.
