There’s a disclaimer in French.  I don’t trust anything spoken and/or written in French.

WWE open, Superstars open, pyro and ballyhoo.  Todd Grisham and Matt Striker are the first announcers.  Tony Chimel is the first ring announcer.

Non-Title: Kelly Kelly (w/ Natalya) vs. Unified WWE Divas Champion Layla (w/ Unified WWE Divas Champion Michelle McCool).  Layla does jumping jacks, then jumps at Kelly and yells “boo!”  Then she dances.  I hate wrestling.  Kelly slaps her and they lock up and pull hair.  Still hating it.  Kelly hits an atomic drop and a leg kick sweep for 2.  Kelly hits another kick for 1.  Layla ducks a diving cross body and gets heat in Kelly in a slow, boring manner.  Layla applies a body scissors.  She rolls it into a cradle for 1.  Repeat for 2.  Kelly reverses the cradle for 2.  Layla hits a dropkick.  So does Kelly.  Kelly rams Layla’s face into the mat, then hits some shitty clotheslines.  Layla gets a swank cradle for 2.  Kelly hits a face buster for 2.  Layla goes for the Sharpshooter and strokes her chin at Natalya.  Kelly gets a cradle for 2.  Layla bails.  Natalya stalks her back to the apron.  Layla pulls Kelly’s head across the top rope.  Natalya chop blocks Layla’s leg.  Kelly gets a schoolgirl for the pin in 5:09.  Fucking awful.

Tonight, Melina vs. Alicia Fox.  Fucking UGH.

Don’t try this at home!

Outdated Bragging Rights commercial.

Knucklehead trailer.

Curt Hawkins vs. Trent Barreta.  They show Hawkins turning on Vance Archer last week.  They lock up.  Hawkins talks shit.  Barreta takes him down and works a side headlock.  Hawkins does a leapfrog, drop down, elbow smash, then an elbow drop or something for 2.  Barreta rams Hawkins into the post.  Hawkins pulls him down on the top rope.  Insta-commercials.  Dudebusters hype video.  Instead of going back to the fucking match.  Barreta fights back.  Hawkins trips him, then hits a suplex for 2.  Barreta moves out of the way and sends Hawkins outside, then hits an AWESOME Space Flying Tiger Drop.  Back inside, Barreta makes his comeback.  Barreta hits a springboard dropkick for 2.  Hawkins side steps a running knee and hits a body slam for 2.  Hawkins goes up top.  Barreta cuts him off and hammers him with elbow smashes.  Barreta climbs up, but Hawkins shoves him down and hits the diving elbow drop for the pin (about 5 minutes shown).  Incredibly mediocre match aside from that one cool spot.

Tonight, Melina vs. Fox.  That’s the most unappealing main event ever.

Don’t try this at home!  They really hammer that home on these European broadcasts.

Raw commercials.

Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler are now the announcers.  I liked the guy from last week better.  Justin Roberts is now the ring announcer.

Primo (w/ AJ) vs. Darren Young).  Young’s hair is slicked back this week.  Primo goes on the attack.  I have no idea who is supposed to be the babyface.  Young fights back and beats up Primo.  They go back and forth.  Young goes up top, but Primo trips him to make him fall down.  Cover gets 2.  Young’s hair is going back to normal now.  Primo hits a dropkick for 2.  Primo keeps the heat on Young.  Young makes his comeback.  Young lands some nice European uppercuts.  Primo boots Young in the face and goes for the Backstabber.  Young counters and hits his retarded full nelson into a front slam thingy for the pin in 4:24.  This wasn’t any good either.

WWE loves the troops!

Melina vs. Fox tonight.  They’re making me want to see it less and less every time they plug it.

Melina hype video.  I think they just edited together every spot she didn’t blow into a 30 second video.

The Miz hype video.

Raw Rebound.

Bragging Rights hype.

The main event, if you can call it that, is next.

Another Bragging Rights commercial.  Actually, it’s the same one from earlier.

Legendary trailer.  Ugh.

Melina vs. Alicia Fox (w/ Maxine).  Melina shocks me by doing a bit of chain wrestling.  Fox pulls Melina’s hair to pull her into the top rope.  Melina does something similar, but with a chin lock instead of a hair pull.  Maxine tries to trip Melina on the apron, but gets kicked away.  Fox gets her cheap shot in to send Melina to the floor.  Back inside, cover gets 2.  Fox stands on Melina’s hair.  Melina avoids a knee drop and hits a flapjack.  Melina makes her comeback with crappy clotheslines and a hair pull takedown.  Melina goes for the Code Red, but Fox counters into a Gory Bomb for 2.  Melina avoids the scissors kick and gets a bizarre cradle for the pin in 3:46.  Once again, only one good spot in the whole otherwise shitty match.

I enjoyed maybe 30 seconds out of 45 minutes.  Crappy show.  It wasn’t actively horrible much, just 45 minutes of very mediocre.

WWE Hell In A Cell 2010

WWE open, PPV open.  Paper Jamz presents Hell In A Cell!  Pyro and ballyhoo.  Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler, and Matt Striker are the announcers.  Justin Roberts and Tony Chimel are the ring announcers.

Triple Threat Submissions Count Anywhere Match for the WWE United States Championship: Daniel Bryan (c) vs. John Morrison vs. The Miz.  Miz cuts a promo on the way to the ring bitching about having sand in his vagina or whatever he’s mad about.  He says neither of the opponents would be anything without him.  They try to put each other in holds.  Miz bails.  Morrison and Bryan chase Miz around.  Morrison grabs Miz’s leg and Bryan kicks Miz in the head.  Miz is sent outside again and Morrison and Bryan wrestle.  Bryan locks Morrison in a leg lock and they roll to the floor.  Miz breaks it and rams Morrison into the side of the ring.  Miz throws Bryan into the barricade, then throws Morrison back in the ring and beats him up.  Morrison avoids Miz in the corner and locks him in the Tarantula!  Bryan breaks it with a dropkick and sends Morrison to the floor.  Bryan locks Miz in the Cattle Mutilation~!  That, unfortunately, doesn’t last long.  Bryan proceeds to kick the crap out of Miz and lock him in a leg lock.  Miz tries to reverse it and they kick each other in the head.  Morrison comes back in and hits the Starship Pain on both of them.  Miz is sent outside.  Morrison locks Bryan in a modified Haas of Pain.  Miz saves.  Morrison sends him out of the ring and takes him out with a dive!  Miz backdrops Morrison into the crowd.  Miz and Morrison fight in the crowd.  Miz locks Morrison in a Dragon sleeper against the hand rail.  Bryan shows up and breaks the hold.  Miz beats up Bryan and rams him in to stuff in the crowd.  Bryan goes for a Fujiwara armbar, but Miz avoids it.  Morrison shows up and gets sent into the barricade by Miz.  They end up brawling near the stage.  Miz rams a cart into Morrison.  Miz drops Bryan across the top of the cart and runs it into the ramp.  Morrison jumps over the cart and dropkicks Miz.  Morrison goes for a triangle choke, but Bryan breaks it.  Miz rams Bryan into the barricade, then hits Morrison with the Skull Crushing Finale on the floor.  On the stage, Miz and Bryan counter each others’ finish, then do a double clothesline spot.  Morrison climbs up the set and hits Miz and Bryan with a dive.  Morrison locks Miz in a Texas Cloverleaf.  Cole mentions Dean Malenko, which makes me happy.  Alex Riley saves and takes out Morrison.  Bryan pushes Riley off the stage into a camera man.  Bryan locks Miz in the LeBell Lock on the ramp for the win in 13:35.  Fun match.

Legendary DVD plug.  Ugh.

Orton/Sheamus hype video.

Hell In A Cell Match for the WWE Championship: Randy Orton (c) vs. Sheamus.  They show Orton taking out Chris Jericho on Raw.  Yeah, just keep rubbing it in!  They lock up and push each other around, then brawl back and forth for a while.  Orton clotheslines Sheamus out of the ring.  Orton tries to ram Sheamus’ head into the cell, but Sheamus blocks it and gets back in the ring.  Orton stomps Sheamus and lands a knee drop for 2.  Sheamus hits a slingshot shoulder block for 2.  Sheamus tries to ram Orton’s head into the cell, but Orton blocks it.  They brawl  at ringside.  Sheamus reverses Orton’s whip into the cell, then drops him with a clothesline.  Sheamus throws the steps at Orton, but Orton ducks and sends Sheamus into the post.  Orton rams Sheamus into the cell a couple of times, then hits him in the head with the steps.  Back inside, cover gets 2.  Sheamus blocks a suplex attempt and front suplexes Orton into the ropes, then shoulder blocks Orton off the ring into the cell.  Inside, cover gets 2.  Sheamus stomps Orton in the corner.  Sheamus beats up Orton.  Sheamus lands a knee for 2.  Sheamus exposes the turnbuckle and tries to ram Orton into it, but Orton fights back.  Sheamus lands a Polish hammer to drop Orton.  Outside, Sheamus grinds Orton’s head into the cell.  Why do that shit with no blood?  Why even have a fucking Hell In A Cell match with no blood?  Sheamus front suplexes Orton into the steps.  Sheamus works Orton’s ribs.  Back inside, cover gets 2.  Sheamus applies a scissored rear chin lock.  Orton fights out and hits a backdrop suplex.  Orton drops Sheamus with a dropkick, then sells his ribs.  They brawl some more.  Orton makes his comeback.  Orton hits a belly to belly suplex for 2.  Orton hits the 3.0 and humps the mat.  Sheamus counters the RKO and lands a knee to the ribs.  Sheamus brings the steps into the ring.  Orton counters Sheamus and powerslams him on the steps.  Ouch.  Cole calls it a scoop slam because he knows nothing about wrestling despite doing this shit for 12 years.  Cover gets 2.  Orton goes for the DDT OF MURDER on the steps, but Sheamus counters.  Orton pulls him across the top rope and hits the DDT OF MURDER from the apron to the floor.  Orton goes for the RKO, but Sheamus pushes him into the post.  Back inside, Sheamus hits the Irish Curse backbreaker on the steps, which is incredibly stupid since it doesn’t hurt Orton any more but does hurt Sheamus more.  Sheamus hits the pump kick for 2.  Sheamus finds a chair under the ring and pummels Orton with it a bunch for 2.  Orton ducks another chair shot and hits the RKO.  Sheamus rolls out of the ring.  Orton follows outside and goes for the punt, but Sheamus avoids it and drops Orton with the pump kick.  Back inside, cover gets 2.  Sheamus tries to set up the Razor’s Edge off the steps, but Orton trips him.  Orton hits the RKO on the steps for the pin in 22:53.  Okay match, but it didn’t light my world on fire.  Orton climbs to the top of the cell to pose with the belt.

Bragging Rights hype.  Coming the night after a Lesnar fight on top of not mattering anyway, nobody is going to buy that PPV.


Josh Matthews interviews the NXT Season 3 divas: Jamie Keyes, Naomi, Maxine, AJ, Kaitlyn, & Aksana.  WHO THE FUCK CARES?  The Nexus show up and run them off.  THANK YOU!  Barrett says John Cena will have to join The Nexus tonight.  They have an “N” armband for him.

Tony Chimel introduces Ricardo Rodriguez to introduce Alberto Del Rio.  Del Rio says he wants to make his PPV debut special.  They show a picture of the chihuahua from Smackdown.  He wonders who his next opponent will be.  He trashes various Texans.  He “challenges anyone.”  Edge comes out.  He says he’s in a fight against stupidity and parts of Del Rio are stupid.  Del Rio says he’s going to hurt Edge, then winks.  Edge says the wink and the ring announcer are stupid.  Del Rio takes his coat off like he’s ready to fight.  Jack Swagger comes out, pissed off about these foreigners.  He says Edge will pay for his eagle’s medical bills.  Edge decks Swagger.  Del Rio jumps Edge from behind.  Swagger beats up Edge.  Cole gets an email from the iBooker 9000.  FUCK!  THIS SHIT IS ON PPV NOW?  The iBooker wants Edge to apologize to it on Raw tomorrow night, and makes Swagger vs. Edge for RIGHT NOW!

Edge vs. Jack Swagger.  A referee comes down to start the match.  Swagger beats on Edge.  Edge fights back.  Swagger whips him into the corner.  Swagger works Edge’s leg.  Edge tries to fight back, but Swagger hits a gut buster for 2.  Swagger sets Edge on the top rope.  Edge goes for a tornado DDT, but Swagger counters and drops him with an enzui clothesline for 2.  Swagger rolls Edge around on the mat.  Edge hot shots Swagger into the ropes, then runs at him.  Swagger avoids it and covers for 2.  Swagger either tries a German suplex or butt fucks Edge on the apron.  He locks in an abdominal stretch on the ropes briefly, then slingshots into the ring and gets dropped with a boot.  Edge hits a wonky facebuster for 2.  Swagger goes for the ankle lock.  Edge counters and goes for the Edgecution.  Swagger counters.  Edge hits the Edge-O-Matic for 2.  Swagger locks in the ankle lock.  Edge gets a rope break.  Edge backdrops Swagger to the floor, when tries to spear him off the apron.  Swagger pulls Edge to the floor and locks him in the ankle lock.  Edge sends Swagger into the steps.  Back inside, Edge goes up top.  Swagger cuts him off.  Edge headbutts Swagger down and hits a missile dropkick for 2.  Swagger sends Edge to the floor.  Edge pulls Swagger’s shoulder into the post.  Edge goes up up.  Swagger brings him down with a belly to belly throw from the top for 2.  Swagger hits a backdrop suplex, then goes for the springboard Vader Bomb.  Edge avoids it and hits the Edgecution, then goes for the spear.  Swagger counters and hits the Doctor Bomb for 2.  Swagger goes for the ankle lock.  Edge goes for an enzuigiri, but ends up getting his knee wrenched.  Swagger locks in the ankle lock.  Edge gets the ropes.  Swagger pulls him back to the middle.  Edge sends Swagger into the ropes, then hits the spear for the pin in 11:31.  Fine match.

Don’t Try This At Home!

The 4 unimportant members of the Nexus chat backstage.  They want to make sure they aren’t forced to disband tonight.  Otunga has a plan to get around the iBooker’s rule that Cena wins if any of them interfere.

Cena/Barrett video.

Nexus Disbands vs. Cena Joins Nexus: Wade Barrett vs. John Cena.  They wrestle a bit.  Cena does a leapfrog and a hip toss, then a dropkick or something for 1.  Barrett pounds on Cena.  Cena pounds on Barrett.  Cole sounds “pound & ground” because he’s a moron.  Cena goes for the Attitude Adjustment.  Nexus run out to distract him.  Barrett nails Cena from behind, then bitches at Nexus for coming out here.  Barrett whips Cena into the barricade.  Back inside, cover gets 2.  Barrett lands a punch for 2.  Barrett hits a backbreaker for 2.  Barrett hits a diving elbow drop for 2.  Barrett puts the boots to Cena in the corner.  Cena fights back, but runs himself into the corner.  Barrett hits a swinging neckbreaker for 2.  Barrett stretches Cena across his knee.  Cena tries to fight out, but gets dropped again.  Barrett catapults Cena into the ropes.  Cena fights back and makes his comeback.  Nexus surround the ring.  Cena hits the Five Knuckle Shuffle.  The Big Show comes out and attacks Nexus.  He’s followed by Goldust, Mark Henry, Dolph Ziggler, Daniel Bryan, Chris Masters, Kofi Kingston, MVP, The Hart Dynasty, Evan Bourne, John Morrison, and R-Truth (I think I listed everyone).  The cavalry takes out Nexus.  Cena goes for the STF.  Barrett counters out and kicks Cena in the gut, then hits a pumphandle slam for 2.  Cena hits some sort of suplex for 2.  Cena goes for the Attitude Adjustment, but Barrett counters and hits a butterfly suplex for 2.  Barrett hits a sidewalk slam for 2.  Barrett goes for a diving elbow drop, but Cena avoids it.  Cena goes up top.  Barrett cuts him off and goes for a superplex, but Cena overpowers him.  Cena headbutts Barrett down and hits the diving Fameasser for 2.  Cena goes for the Attitude Adjustment.  Barrett counters and hits the Wasteland.  CENA KICKS OUT!  Cena hits the Attitude Adjustment.  BARRETT KICKS OUT!  Cena locks in the STF.  Somebody comes out of the crowd and jumps in the ring.  With the referee distracted, somebody else hits Cena with something.  Barrett gets the pin 17:50.  Really, really good match.  Nexus celebrates.  Looking back at the video, I’m pretty sure the first guy was Michael McGillicutty and the second was Husky Harris.  They do the long, drawn out thing with Cena realizing he’s fucked and walking to the back.

Paper Jamz commercial featuring The Miz.

Josh Matthews walks down a purple hallway.  Paul Bearer comes up behind him.  Matthews asks him why he’s back.  He says he has a master plan and Kane will never be his favorite son.

American Airlines Center!

Wrestlers visiting sick kids for Make A Wish!

Unified WWE Divas Championship Match: Michelle McCool (c) (w/ Unified WWE Divas Champion Layla) vs. Natalya.  Natalya takes McCool down and wrestles her.  McCool gets to the ropes and bails.  Natalya chases her and knocks Layla down.  McCool cheap shots Natalya and sends her into the barricade.  McCool works over Natalya in the ring.  Natalya gets a reverse cradle for 2.  McCool hooks in a body scissors.  Natalya makes her comeback.  Natalya hits a clothesline for 2.  Layla gets on the apron.  Natalya pulls her hair.  McCool accidentally decks Layla.  Natalya schoolgirls girl, but the retarded ref takes too long to count and it only gets 2.  McCool hits a belly to belly suplex for 2.  McCool goes for the Styles Clash.  Natalya counters and locks in the Sharpshooter.  McCool counters into the heel hook.  Natalya counters back into the Sharpshooter.  Awesome.  Layla throws a shoe at Natalya to cause the DQ in 4:53.  Natalya locks Layla in the Sharpshooter.  Shit happens.  LayCool bail.  Nattie wins, but doesn’t win the belt.  Garbage.

They plug the PPV theme song.

Kane/Undertaker video.

Hell In A Cell Match for the World Heavyweight Championship: Kane (c) vs. The Undertaker (w/ Paul Bearer).  Bearer wants to come into the cell, but Taker won’t let him.  Bearer says “You need me in here!”  Kane jumps Taker and they brawl outside the cell, then inside the cell at ringside.  The bell finally rings.  Taker hits Kane with a chair and rams his head into the steps.  Finally in the ring, Taker hits a couple of running clotheslines to the corner.  Taker hits Snake Eyes and the big boot, then a leg drop for 2.  Taker goes for the chokeslam, but Kane gouges his eyes.  Kane hits Taker with the chair.  They brawl at ringside again.  Taker beats up Kane until Kane reverses an Irish whip and sends Taker into the steps.  Kane attacks Taker’s leg with the chair.  Kane wedges Taker’s leg between the post and the steps and kicks the steps into it.  Kane keeps working the leg.  Taker fights back with big punches.  Taker hits the APRON LEG DROP and I pop.  Back inside, Kane goes after Taker’s leg again.  Undertaker forearms his way out of a hold and lands some punches.  They trade punches.  Taker hits the jumping clothesline.  Taker goes for Old School, but gets crotched on the top rope.  Kane hits a superplex and the diving lariat.  He goes for the cover, but Taker goes for the Hell’s Gate.  Kane bails out of the ring to escape.  Kane comes back in and they do a double knockdown spot, then both sit up and trade punches.  Taker hits Kane with his running DDT for 2.  Taker hits the chokeslam for 2.  Kane hits the chokeslam for 2.  Kane splashes Taker in the corner a bunch and does some corner punches.  Taker hits the Last Ride out of the corner for 2.  Taker goes for the Tombstone, but Kane reverses it and Tombstones Undertaker.  TAKER KICKS OUT!  Kane is cut on the back of his head.  He punches out the referee, presumably to keep him from stopping the match because that shit pisses him off as much as it does me.  They open the cell door to retrieve the KO’d referee, which allows Paul Bearer to come into the cell.  Kane very slowly chases Bearer into the ring.  Kane yells at Bearer.  Taker sits up and chokeslams Kane.  Taker rolls his eyes back and signals for the Tombstone.  Pyro and lightning go off ont he set as Taker goes for the Tombstone.  Bearer opens the urn and a light comes out, which weakens Taker.  Bearer gives Kane the urn, which I assume contains Undertaker’s power.  Kane clocks Taker with the urn, then hits the chokeslam for the pin in 21:41.  Given that I’ve come to expect and be amused by this cartoony shit, this was fun.  Also, it makes perfect sense for Bearer to turn on Taker since the last time we saw Bearer, Taker buried him in concrete.  Bearer leaves with Kane.

Other than the opener and Barrett/Cena, this show kind of sucked.

WWE Superstars 9/30/10

Alicia Fox & Jillian Hall (w/ Maxine) vs. The Bella Twins (w/ Jamie Keyes).  Jillian sings before the match.  It’s awful.  Fox and one of the Bellas lock up.  Bella hits a monkey flip.  The other Bella tags in.  Bellas hit a double flippy leg flip thing for 2.  Jillian tags in.  The Bella hits her with a jawbreaker.  Jillian goes for a cartwheel elbow thing to the corner, but the Bella kicks her.  The Bellas shake their asses at her like they did on Raw.  Fox trips the Bella and pulls her out of the ring.  Jillian throws her back in.  Shit happens.  Fox tags in and works the Bella over.  Jillian and the other Bella tag in.  The Bella runs wild.  A bulldog headlock gets 2.  Jillian hits a Samoan drop for 2.  The Bella goes for a sunset flip.  Clusterfuck ensues.  The illegal Bella gets a sunset flip on Jillian for the pin in 4:05.  This was terrible.

Lame show this week.

WWE open, “last week on NXT…,” NXT open, pyro and ballyhoo.  Josh Matthews is alone as the announcer because Michael Cole quit last week.  CM Punk comes out with a blazer over his wrestling gear to do commentary.  Pros Vickie Guerrero, Alicia Fox, Primo, and Kelly Kelly are already on the stage.

Matt Striker introduces the rookie divas: Kaitlyn, Maxine, Aksana, AJ, Naomi, and Jamie.  Striker says the first elimination is in 2 weeks.  They should just eliminate them all.  Vickie Guerrero makes my ears bleed and takes credit for Kaitlyn winning the obstacle course.  She says Kaitlyn will face Jamie tonight.  She brings out Unified WWE Divas Champions Michelle McCool & Layla because one of the NXT writers reads my blog and wants everyone I hate on this show.  They are obnoxious.  Layla says “deever.”  They obnoxiously bury the rookies.  This is brutal.  Kelly takes offense to LayCool insulting her.  They agree to LayCool & Kaitlyn vs. Kelly, Naomi, & Jamie tonight.  That’s gonna be a barn burner.  Commercials. plug.

They play musical chairs.  I fast forward.  AJ gets a controversial win over Naomi in the final.  I hate this show.

AJ vs. Maxine tonight.  Commercials.

Matthews and Punk banter a bit.

Raw Rebound.

Hell In A Cell hype.

Maxine and Alicia Fox come out.  Maxine vs. AJ is next.  Commercials.

Maxine (w/ Alicia Fox) vs. AJ (w/ Primo).  They show the catfight between them during the joke thing last week.  Punk makes a joke about girl scout cookies.  Maxine slowly shoves AJ down and rams her head against the mat softly.  AJ hits a shoulder block, an arm drag, and fuckes up a kick.  AJ knees Maxine in the face.  Maxine hits a drop toe hold into the ropes, then knees AJ into the ropes.  Maxine applies a rear chin lock.  Shit happens.  Maxine hits a suplex for 2.  AJ boots Maxine in the face and makes her comeback.  Maxine hits a brainbuster, then AJ rolls over and pins her in 2:28.  Seriously.  That was the fucking finish.  Worst match ever.

Michael Cole comes out to be obnoxious.  I thought he quit.  He’s returning.  Joy.

Six diva tag tonight.  Commercials.

WWE bullshit fact of the night.

Announcers talk.

Striker has the rookies in the ring.  It’s the promo contest.  I don’t care.  AJ is awarded the decision.

This is the worst show I’ve ever seen.  I feel completely brain dead now.

WWE NXT 9/14/10

Posted in WWE with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 15, 2010 by Grappleholic

WWE open, NXT open.  Michael Cole and Josh Matthews are the announcers.  Tony Chimel is the ring announcer.

Vickie Guerrero and Kaitlyn come out so Vickie can open the show by being obnoxious and Cole jizzes in his pants in a way he usually reserves for Miz.  Vickie introduces her man, WWE Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler.  Pros Alicia Fox, Kelly Kelly, Goldust, and The Bella Twins are already on stage.  They show the stupid bullshit from last week.

WWE Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler & Kaitlyn (w/ Vickie Guerrero) vs. Primo & AJ.  Ziggler and Primo start.  Ziggler gets dropkicked in the face and tags out.  Kaitlyn and AJ tag in.  They wrestle a bit, and it’s actually not awful.  AJ hits a cross body for 2.  Kaitlyn hits a move and tags in Ziggler.  Ziggler knocks Primo off the apron and stalks AJ.  AJ tries of this shit and slaps the shit out of him, then makes the hot tag to Primo.  Primo runs wild and hits a leg sweep for 2.  Ziggler avoids Primo in the corner and hits the Zig Zag for the pin in 2:48.  Not a bad little TV match, believe it or not.  Kaitlyn was a way better base for AJ than the chick she wrestled last week.  Vickie is upset, even though her team won.

Maxine hype video.

Up next, a JOKE OFF!  Commercials. plug.

Matt Striker is in the ring with AJ and Kaitlyn.  He introduces the other rookies: Aksana, Maxine, Naomi (who won both contests last week), and Jamie Keyes.  It’s time for a JOKE OFF!  All of their jokes are lame.  Maxine doesn’t even try, she just talks shit to AJ, leading to a CATFIGHT!  Kaitlyn slaps AJ for her joke and another CATFIGHT erupts.  Jamie wins.  None of them were funny.

Michael Cole bangs on a gong and throws a fit.

Next, Aksana vs. Jamie.  That’s gonna be a barn burner.  Cole keeps banging his gong.  Commercials.

Jamie Keyes (w/ The Bella Twins) vs. Aksana (w/ Goldust).  They’re doing that stupid “people stand on the ring during a singles match,” which I hate.  They trade arm locks.  Aksana scores a knockdown with a shoulder block, then body slams Jamie and misses an elbow drop.  Jamie works Aksana’s arm some more.  They shove each other, then lock up.  Aksana throws Jamie and hits some clotheslines.  Jamie avoids Aksana in the corner and gets a schoolgirl for the pin in 2:03.  Not the worst little match I’ve ever seen.

Naomi hype video.

Tonight, untrained women run the NXT obstacle course!  It’s gonna be legendary!  Commercials.

Undertaker/Kane history video.

Cole and Matthews hype the Night of Champions card.

Earlier tonight, Dolph Ziggler and Kaitlyn hugged after they won, which pissed off Vickie the warthog.

Dolph and Kaitlyn chat backstage.  Vickie comes in and puts them over, then sends Kaitlyn away and bitching at Dolph.  Vickie assures Dolph that he can rid of her by doing that again.  He should go hug Kaitlyn right now and get rid of that warthog.

Obstacle Course is NXT!  Commercials.

Obstacle Course time!  Kaitlyn is to go first, but Vickie Guerrero comes out to make my ears bleed some more.  She’s going to run the obstacle course to show up Kaitlyn.  OMG.  She does it well enough, which sucks, because I can’t make fun of her.  Haha!  She trips for no reason after clearing most of the obstacles.  I feel better now.  Vickie throws a fit and cries.  Maybe she’ll quit!  Commercials.

Moments ago, ^ happened.

Now it’s time for the other divas to do the Obstacle Course.  Kaitlyn wins.  Vickie comes out to celebrate with her.  Cole bangs his gong again.  He buries the show and quits.  Yay!

I never expected to say this even once this season, but… fun show.

WWE NXT 9/7/10

Posted in WWE with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 12, 2010 by Grappleholic

I fully expect this to be brutal.

WWE open, NXT open (with new music, so Bryan Alvarez is happy), pyro and ballyhoo.  Michael Cole and Josh Matthews are the announcers.

Host Matt Striker is in the ring.  He introduces the Pros, who in turn introduce their respective rookies: Kelly Kelly and Naomi Knight, The Bella Twins and Jamie Keyes, Primo and AJ Lee, Alicia Fox and Maxine, and Goldust and Aksana.  The last Pro, Vickie Guerrero, comes out to be obnoxious.  She fired her rookie, the really tall one.  She introduces her new rookie, Kaitlyn.  They got rid of the big one for another generic one.  Brilliant move.  Striker says the fucking show is going to last three months.  That’s WWE raping my brain.  He has them introduce themselves.  Vickie bitches at her rookie for sucking and makes her do it again.  Ugh.  They’re all awful.  Especially Jamie Keyes.  Her voice is nails on a chalkboard.  She should have been Vickie’s rookie.  Striker threatens that a rookie challenge is next.  Commercials.

Striker still has them in the ring.  They’re all forced to dance with Michael Cole, Tony Chimel, or Josh Matthews.  Naomi wins.  This was the worst thing ever.

Kelly & Naomi vs. Alicia & Maxine is next.  Ugh.  Commercials.

Tony Chimel is the ring announcer.

Alicia Fox & Maxine vs. Kelly Kelly & Naomi.  Kelly and Fox do some shit.  Fox does a headscissors and a Frankensteiner for 2.  Naomi tags in and does a sweet springboard sunset flip for 2.  Naomi lands a dropkick and a butt butt for 2.  Fox hits a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker for 2.  Maxine and Fox get heat on Knight.  Knight gets Maxine with an inside cradle for the pin in 3:03.  They keep wrestling.  Naomi counters a suplex attempt with one of her own and goes for the pin, but the referee tells her the match was over.  This was awful.  Fucking idiots.

A Capture the Flag race is next.  Commercials.

They do their stupid race.  Naomi wins.

Goldust & Aksana vs. Primo & AJ tonight.  Commercials.

Fucking hype for Cena’s movie.

Cole and Matthews hype the Night of Champions card.

Jamie Keyes hype video.

The “main event” is next.  Commercials.

Goldust & Aksana vs. Primo & AJ.  Goldust and Primo start.  Goldust gets a schoolboy for 2.  The girls tag in.  Aksana hits a leg drop for 2.  Aksana hits a backbreaker for 2.  AJ hits a flippy bulldog for the pin in 1:46.  The girls tried hard, but their movements were really clunky.

Vickie Guerrero brings her rookie Kaitlyn back down to the ring, because we haven’t enough of obnoxious fucking Vickie Guerrero on this show.  She wants her to do her introduction fucking again.  Primo argues with her.  AJ tells her to go away.  YES, THANK YOU AJ.  Vickie tells her rookie to attack AJ, but AJ counters and pushes her into Vickie.  Vickie is pissed.  Maybe she’ll quit.

Season 3 intro: Alicia Fox is Pro to Maxine.

The Pros huddle.  The first elimination is NXT!  Commercials. plug.

Season 3 intro: Goldust is Pro to Aksana.

Albany, New York!

Matt Striker asks the previously eliminated rookies who they think should win.  Titus O’Neil and Eli Cottonwood say Riley.  Lucky Cannon says it doesn’t matter because the show went down the toiler when he was eliminated.  Percy Watson and Husky Harris say McGillicutty.  It’s time for the elimination!  Alex Riley is gone.  HAHA!  Riley cuts his farewell promo and says we should still bet the future of WWE on him.

Season 3 intro: The Bella Twins are Pros to Jamie Keyes.  The ring announcer.  Yes, the Bellas are going to teach the horrible ring announcer how to wrestle.  Commercials.

WWE bullshit fact of the night.

China clips.

Season 3 intro: Primo is Pro to AJ Lee.

Striker has Kaval and Michael McGillicutty in the ring.  He directs them to cut promos on each other.  McGillicutty cuts a kind of funny promo on Kaval.  Kaval cuts a good promo in response.  Commercials.

Season 3 intro: Vickie Guerrero is Pro to… WAIT A MINUTE.  WHAT THE FUCK?  WHY THE FUCK IS VICKIE GUERRERO A FUCKING PRO?  This show just jumped the shark.  The rookie is a giantess of a woman named Aloisia.

It’s time for the moment of truth.  The winner of NXT season 2 is… wait for it… KAVAL!  Fuckin’ right!  Kaval shows incredible balance will standing on the top rope to celebrate as LayCool rush the ring and shower him with approval.  McGillicutty is shocked and pissed.  “HIM?”  McGillicutty says he’s still the future, he’ll be back, etc. etc.  I just hope he finds a better name.  Kaval starts to cut his victory promo when the 5 previously eliminated rookies jump him.  The babyface Pros hit the ring to try to make the save.  Referees try to break it up.  Husky Harris keeps beating the shit out of Kaval.  Miz, Riley, and McGillicutty come back the ring and join the brawl.  Everybody else does shit outside while Harris, Riley, McGillicutty, and Cannon beat up Kaval.  Cannon hits his modified DVD thingy.  Harris hits his senton.  Riley hits the TKO.  Watson and O’Neil are back in the ring now.  Where the fuck did the Pros go?  O’Neil hits Kaval with a sit-out spinebuster.  Kaval is left laying.

Season 2 highlight video.

Okay show, but the big clusterfuck at the end was confusing.  This concludes season 2.  I have less than no desire to watch season 3, but I’m sure I’ll keep on trucking through.  I’ll dread that more than I dread Impact every week.
