WWE NXT 8/24/10

WWE open, “Last week on NXT…” video, NXT open, pyro and ballyhoo.  Michael Cole and Josh Matthews are the announcers.  Jamie Keyes is the ring announcer.

Jamie Keyes introduces the Pros: Kofi Kingston, Zack Ryder, “Dashing” Cody Rhodes, WWE Women’s Champion Layla & Michelle McCool, and Montel Vontavious Porter.  Then she introduces the three remaining rookies: Kaval, Alex Riley, and Michael McGillicutty.  Matt Striker asks them how it feels to make it to the finals.  They all cut their promos.  Kaval calls out Cody Rhodes for the shit he started last week.  Kaval and Rhodes banter for a while.  Kaval challenges Rhodes to a match tonight.  Rhodes says no, because he’s a big vagina.  MVP calls him out on it and challenges him to a match tonight.  Rhodes agrees.  So they’ve established that Kaval is scarier to face than MVP.  Striker threatens us with a Trivia contest next.  Commercials.

Shit, they’re actually doing a WWE Trivia contest.  They’re all really easy questions.  Kaval wins with a score of 700 to McGillicutty’s 500 and Riley’s 200.  Kaval gets his head plastered all over WWE.com for winning.  I wanted to hate it, but it was kind of funny.

Voting opens on WWE.com tomorrow for next week’s finale!

Tonight, MVP vs. Cody Rhodes!  Commercials.

Raw Rebound.

MVP vs. Rhodes is NXT!  Commercials.

Still photos from the weekend house show in China.

“Dashing” Cody Rhodes vs. Montel Vontavious Porter.  They lock up.  Rhodes grabs a side headlock, then a hammerlock, then clocks MVP on the back of his head.  MVP knocks Rhodes on his ass.  Rhodes bails for a second, then comes back in and yells at the ref.  They lock up again.  MVP pushes Rhodes into the corner and gives a clean break.  Third lock up.  MVP works a side headlock, then lands a shoulder block.  Rhodes hits a drop toe hold, then works the leg.  MVP goes for a punch to the face and Rhodes flinches and falls on his ass again.  MVP hits some clotheslines and a back body drop for 2.  MVP works Rhodes’ shoulder.  MVP hits a snap suplex for 2, then cranks on the shoulder some more.  Nice arm work by MVP.  MVP clotheslines Rhodes to the floor, then takes him out with a slingshot dive.  MVP rams Rhodes’ shoulder into the post, then the ring apron.  They roll back into the ring.  Commercials.  Rhodes whips MVP hard into the corner and stomps on his back.  Rhodes clubbers MVP in the corner.  MVP fights back and hits a clothesline for 2.  MVP goes back to working the arm.  Rhodes hits a jawbreaker, then stomps on MVP.  Rhodes hits a front suplex and a knee drop for 2.  MVP avoids a second knee drop and hits an elbow smash for 2.  Rhodes bails and complains about getting hit in the face.  Rhodes pulls MVP out of the ring and sends him into the barricade.  Back inside, cover gets 2.  Rhodes works a modified headlock.  MVP rolls him into a cradle for 2.  Rhodes transitions into a rear chin lock.  Rhodes beats up MVP some more, then clamps on a guillotine.  MVP rams him into the corner and gets kicked the face.  Rhodes covers for 2.  Rhodes hits his springboard kick, then stomps on MVP some more.  Cover gets 2.  Rhodes applies a crossface.  Commercials.  Really?  MVP and Cody Rhodes get 3 segments?  Rhodes lands a dropkick.  This match has been way too long.  Cover gets 2.  A second cover also gets 2.  Rhodes does some ground and pound.  Rhodes applies a figure-four headscissors.  MVP hits an electric chair drop for 2.  Another cover also gets 2.  Rhodes beats on MVP in the corner.  MVP pushes Rhodes off of the top.  Rhodes cuts MVP off again anyway and hits a superplex for 2.  Rhodes applies a modified surfboard chin lock thing.  MVP headbutts him to escape.  They fuck around, then MVP hits a clothesline and takes a nap.  MVP finally starts making his comeback.  MVP hits the Ballin’ elbow and goes for the Playmaker, but Rhodes counters and hits the Alabama Slam for 2.  FUCK.  Rhodes hits the Cross Rhodes for the pin in 23:59.  Yes, 24 FUCKING MINUTES FOR MVP VS. CODY RHODES.  It was fine for about 10, after that it got fucking boring and killed an otherwise tolerable show.

NXT week is the season finale!  Vote early, vote often!  For Kaval!

The trivia thing was funny, but I feel violated for being subject to a fucking 24 minute MVP/Cody Rhodes match.
