WWE NXT: Bad contests, bad matches, bad show
By MATT BISHOP - SLAM! Wrestling


Tonight on WWE NXT: With only one week before another elimination, it's time for the rookie divas to make an impact. We have two more completely absurd contests tonight plus, Ted DiBiase and Maryse show up in search of the Million Dollar Belt. Should be a good one?

And we are "LIVE!" from Milwaukee, Wisc. Michael Cole and Josh Mathews are our commentators and Matt Striker is our host. This show is presented in WWEHD (TV-PG,V).

Striker welcomes out the five remaining NXT rookie divas for tonight's Halloween edition. All of them are in costume. AJ is a ninja turtle, Naomi is the Hamburger Helper hand, Kaitlyn is Vickie Guerrero, I have no idea what Maxine is and Aksana is a devil woman.

There will be an elimination next week, Striker says.

It's time for the contest. Which is parading the girls around in their costumes for 15 seconds.

Kaitlyn gets over the most as Vickie. Naomi gets booed for plugging Hamburger Helper. This is not good.

As expected, Kaitlyn wins in a landslide.

Ted DiBiase and Maryse are WALKING backstage.

Match #1 - Naomi vs. Maxine

Both are competing in their costumes. This is going to be something.

During the match, Tony Chimel brings Cole and Mathews movie fare and Knucklehead on DVD.

They brawl out near the announce desk. This upsets Cole because he can't eat the food Chimel brought them. They go back into the ring. Naomi fires up and hits a jawbreaker. Clothesline gets two for Naomi. She then hits a headbutt and gets the fall.

Winner via pinfall: Naomi

Goldust and Aksana are backstage when immigration comes up and says if they aren't married by next week, Aksana is going to be taken into custody.

Match #2 - Brie Bella vs. AJ

They start out with a handshake. Headlock for Bella. AJ fires up out of it but gets dropped with a clothesline. Back to the headlock. AJ sends Bella to the outside and Nikki gets in Brie's face for not finishing AJ. Bella comes back in and AJ hits three kicks for two. AJ with a sleeper but Bella backs her into the corner. AJ hits a sliding knee for two. With AJ in control, Nikki drags Brie out of the ring and replaces her behind the referee's back and hits AJ with an X-Factor for the pin.

Winner via pinfall: Brie Bella

DiBiase and Maryse are backstage. Maryse is complaining about being there. He says they are there to get back his Million Dollar Title. Maryse suggests he buy another one. He says it's about principle. He says Maryse is going to help him get it back tonight.

It's time for the second competition, a Halloween candy eating contest. They each have a plate in front of them. Striker asks for help and out comes Hornswaggle. Guerrero is yelling "FASTER!" at Kaitlyn. After much delay, Maxine is determined to be the winner.

Maxine gets in Hornswaggle's face. AJ stops her and then Maxine gets in her face. Then Hornswaggle drops down and AJ pushes Maxine over Hornswaggle. Then Kaitlyn is "choking" and coughs up some candy onto Vickie Guerrero. This show just went from five metres under to 10 metres under.

Kaitlyn is backstage knocking on Vickie's dressing room. Dolph Ziggler answers as Vickie is blowing a gasket. Ziggler says Kaitlyn is really making that outfit work. Then Vickie screams really loudly and Ziggler heads back in.

Match #3 - Goldust & Aksana vs. Ted DiBiase & Maryse

Maryse and Aksana start it out. Maryse is not happy with Aksana and takes it to her in the early going. Aksana kicks Maryse off and tags Goldust, so it's time for the males to come in.

The pace picks up about 100 percent and DiBiase gains the upper hand. Goldust gets going with the drop-down uppercut and an atomic drop but DiBiase knocks him down and then hits a baseball slide that sends Goldust off the apron and to the floor.

Back in the ring, standing dropkick for two for DiBiase. Goldust is able to make the tag and Aksana hits the drop-down uppercut but DiBiase breaks up the pin. Goldust takes out DiBiase. Maryse goes for the DDT but Aksana rolls her up and that's it.

Winners via pinfall: Goldust & Aksana

After the match, DiBiase attacks Goldust and takes the belt. He slides it to Maryse in the ring. Aksana slaps Maryse and gets it back but DiBiase forcefully takes it from her. Aksana then slaps DiBiase and takes the belt back. This buys Goldust enough time to come back and dispatch of DiBiase.

That's a wrap.
