WWE NXT: First elimination on tap, Vickie battles Kaitlyn
MATT BISHOP - SLAM! Wrestling
Tonight on WWE NXT: It's elimination night as NXT moves from Syfy to WWE.com in the United States. On tap tonight are two competitions. The rookie diva with the most total competition wins is immune from tonight's elimination. Also on tap, Kaitlyn battles her pro Vickie Guerrero. Should be a good one!
And we are "LIVE!" from Topeka, Kansas. Michael Cole and Josh Mathews are our commentators and Matt Striker is our host. This show is presented in WWEHD (TV-PG,V).
Striker brings out the six rookies. It's time for the first competition of the evening — a mechanical bull riding competition. Oh boy.
Naomi is up first and rides for 12.5 seconds. Aksana rides for 17.9 seconds. AJ is on for 9.6 seconds. Jamie lasts 10.9 seconds. Maxine takes quite the tumble at 9.8 seconds. Kaitlyn finishes in 10 flat and that's it. Aksana wins it.
Match #1 - Aksana vs. Maxine
Aksana gets going with a series of clotheslines and boots Maxine in the head. And the stream completely dies and I hear Aksana pick up the win. Maybe they'll replay it for me. Oh, they do show a replay only the whole thing dies again during the replay. This is embarrassing.
Winner via pinfall: Aksana
Of course, the stream is absolutely perfect during the Raw Rebound.
It's time for our second competition. This one is a talent show. Oh boy.
Aksana's talent is modified pushups where she puts her legs in front of her arms. This was absolutely sick (in a good way) -- Naomi raps. Thankfully the audio is working because the video has stalled. It's pretty good. Both ladies do well. AJ tells Striker she is going to give Cole a personality. In actuality, it's flexibility. Again, the video stalls. I hear the music but can't see anything. This is awful. Jamie says her talent is turning men on. She starts hitting on Striker and actually kisses him. He is dumbfounded. Kaitlyn's talent is art. She has an easel. She draws a picture of Vickie Guerrero, a stick figure. The crowd loves this. Maxine apologizes to Hornswaggle and has baked him a pie and wants to give it to him. I think you have to be an idiot to not see where this is going. Maxine asks him if he wants to try it. He says sure and she throws some in his face. In return, Hornswaggle puts the whole pie in her face.
And the winner is ... Kaitlyn.
Striker says both AJ and Kaitlyn have both won three competitions so it's up to the fans to decide who's immune. Kaitlyn runs away with it.
Backstage, Goldust is talking with Aksana when an immigration officer comes up and tells her she has four weeks to get her papers in order.
Match #2 - Vickie Guerrero vs. Kaitlyn
Vickie takes a walk after, I think Kaitlyn hit and slapped her. I'm not sure because the video crapped out. Kaitlyn goes to check on her and Vickie pulls her out of the ring. She rolls Kaitlyn back in the ring and gives her the bad mouth. Vickie dominating the match thus far. She goes to body slam Kaitlyn but hurts her back so Kaitlyn picks her up and slams her for two. Vickie goes to yell at Dolph Ziggler for why he isn't helping her when Kaitlyn rolls her up from behind.
Winner via pinfall: Kaitlyn
Kaitlyn hugs Ziggler after the match and Vickie blows a gasket.
It's time for the NXT Poll.
Instead of showing a poll ranking from top to bottom it's a random thing. Your eliminated rookie diva is Jamie.
She thanks everybody on the way out.
And I'm going to assume that what Striker was saying wasn't important as the NXT logo appears on my screen, signifying the end of the stream.
