WWE NXT: Has this show hit rock bottom?
By MATT BISHOP - SLAM! Wrestling


Tonight on WWE NXT: If this show wasn't a complete joke before, it certainly is now. Tonight's show had one of the worst matches on WWE TV in long time, one so riveting that Michael Cole dropped his headset to take a phone call during it, and also featured two asinine competitions. This show has fallen off a cliff. Should be a good one?

And we are LIVE! from Edmonton, Alberta. 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 the rookies out and notes this is the halfway point of the show. Striker is going over some pertinent information when he is interrupted by Vickie Guerrero. Guerrero runs down Kaitlyn's outfit. She says Kaitlyn's look is not good. She then says she's going to save her from disaster. She gives her a zip-up hood to wear. Maxine tells her to put it on so they can all move on. Maxine says she needs to show Vickie some respect and she'd take Vickie as her pro. This upsets her real pro, Alicia Fox. She comes to the ring and Vickie insults her, so Fox sets up her rookie, Maxine and against Kaitlyn in a match.

Match #1 - Kaitlyn vs. Maxine

Both pros have micas on in the corner. Cole quips that they've found Smackdown's new announce team.

The match is just bad. Commentary takes it as a complete joke. In fact, Cole drops his headset and actually takes a phone call during the match. He hands it to Tony Chimel. What is going on here? Cole comes back. This might be the worst match of all time. Maxine wins with a rollup.

Winner via pinfall: Maxine

It's time for a rookie diva competition with the "Who's that body" competition where a Superstar's body from the neck down will be displayed. They have to answer who it is. This should be great.

Naomi gets the first one without hearing choices and it's Cody Rhodes. Naomi fires off again the second one and guesses Michelle McCool but Kailtyn correctly guesses Kelly Kelly. Kaitlyn gets John Morrison. Naomi guesses Maryse. AJ gets John Cena. AJ gets Gail Kim. Maxine gets Kozlov and Naomi gets Melina to win it.

Goldust and Aksana are backstage. They will marry in two weeks. Goldust says there's only one thing left to make it official and he gives her a big ring.

It's time for the second competition. It's a limbo competition. Kaitlyn is out first. AJ is out next. Then Aksana. The bar is pretty low for Maxine and Naomi. Maxine is eliminated, thus Naomi wins and didn't have to do what Maxine did. Hit the gong.

Match #2 - Kelly Kelly & Naomi vs. The Bella Twins

Yes, this is a real match.

The crowd loves this match so much it chants "We want Goldust." Naomi in and she drills a Bella with a dropkick. The other Bella comes in and attacks Naomi and it breaks down. Nikki isn't happy with Naomi. She locks her in a backbender. Chinlock for Nikki now. Nikki is just being super aggressive. She trips Naomi with Brie being legal. She throws her sister out of the ring and pins Naomi.

Winners via pinfall: The Bella Twins

Show's over.
