WWE NXT: Tag team action headlines show
MATT BISHOP - SLAM! Wrestling
Tonight on WWE NXT: Well, at least this season of NXT is showing signs of life. With some new blood pumped into the show, business starts to pick up a little bit. In tonight's main event, Titus O'Neil and Percy Watson team up to face JTG and Darren Young. Should be a good one!
And we are "LIVE!" from Dayton, Ohio. Jack Korpela and William Regal are our commentators and Matt Striker and is our host. This show is presented in WWEHD (TV-PG,V).
"Showtime" Percy Watson is out to start the show. It's time for "It's Showtime! The Percy Watson Show." There's a lounger and a couch in the ring with a red carpet. Watson welcomes out his partner Titus O'Neil. They are having a mutual admiration society when they are interrupted by JTG and Darren Young. They go back-and-forth. JTG calls Watson and O'Neil haters. Watson and O'Neil tell them to get lost and JTG and Young try to attack, but Watson and O'Neil saw it coming and run them off. They'll have a match tonight.
Match #1 - AJ (Union City, NJ) vs. Maxine (Tampa, Fla.)
Maxine out to a hot start with a backbreaker which she takes right into a chinlock with a knee straight into the back. AJ tries to fire up but Maxine stops that and locks in a Boston Crab with her foot right on AJ's next. Maxine all over AJ and now she's getting frustrated that AJ won't go away. Now into a stretch pulling the arms back with a knee in the back. This is a total squash at this point. I don't think AJ's gotten in one offensive move so far. AJ works her way up from a headlock. Maxine whips her into the corner and charges but AJ moves and Maxine hits the post.
AJ with a big clothesline and then a corner dropkick. Off the ropes and AJ slides through Maxine's leg and hits a spinning back kick for two. Maxine with a chop and then she goes for her finish but AJ blocks it, trips Maxine and then comes off the ropes with a Shining Wizard and that's it.
Winner via pinfall: AJ
Match #2 - Yoshi Tatsu (Tokyo, Japan) vs. Derrick Bateman (Cleveland, Ohio)
Tatsu goes to work with some chops and starts lighting Bateman up with chops and kicks. He hits a running boot in the corner and then hits the ropes and hits a spinning heel kick for two. Tatsu goes to the top rope and hits a big splash for two. Tatsu comes off the middle rope with another crossbody but Bateman reverses the cover for two. The two get up and Tatsu hits the high kick. Bateman is out. He goes for the cover but it's broken up by Tyson Kidd and that's it.
Winner via disqualification: Yoshi Tatsu
After the match, Kidd beats Tatsu down and leaves him laying.
Match #3 - Titus O'Neil (Tampa, Fla.) vs. Percy Watson (Miami, Fla.) vs. JTG (Brooklyn, NY) & Darren Young (Miami, Fla.)
Watson and O'Neil go to work on Young while JTG tries to get his partner going in the corner by chanting "No days off! No days off!" Classic tag team wrestling here by Watson and O'Neil as they isolate Young. But that only lasts so long before Young bullrushes O'Neil into his corner and tags in JTG. JTG, though, just gets socked by O'Neil and then eats a shoulder breaker. JTG quickly had enough of that and brings Young back in and O'Neil whips him into the corner and over the top rope.
We're back and Watson is going at it with JTG. That turns over, though, and it's JTG who takes over on Watson. He goes for a cover but the referee's back is turned briefly. Young and JTG isolate Watson. They are all over him. Chinlock for Young but Watson fires out with a side slam and finally tags in O'Neil. Inverted atomic drop and then a power clothesline land for O'Neil. Scoop slam connects but JTG breaks up the fall. Watson charges JTG but gets low-bridged. O'Neil dispatches of JTG but while he's distracted, Young chop blocks him and loads him up for the fireman's carry into the double knees and that's it.
Winners via pinfall: Darren Young & JTG
The Usos appear again after the match and beat up and deliver Superfly Splashes to JTG and Young.
