WWE NXT: 'Jokes' a plenty as season rolls on
By MATT BISHOP - SLAM! Wrestling


Tonight on WWE NXT: The rivalries on this show are starting to boil over. After some "comedy" in the opening promo, the newly engaged couple of Derrick Bateman and Maxine team with JTG to face Redemption Points leader Titus O'Neil, Percy Watson and AJ. Should be a good one!

And we are TAPED! from Greenville, SC. Jack Korpela and William Regal are our commentators and Matt Striker is our host. This show is presented in WWEHD (TV-PG,V).

Tonight's show begins with the cheesiest and best video package ever, featuring the love between Derrick Bateman and Maxine.

JTG is in the ring to open the show. He asks everyone to get out of their seats for WWE's hottest couple, one of true love. He welcomes out Bateman and Maxine. Bateman is literally carrying her. Maxine takes the mic and tells JTG to refer to them as "BetaMax." She is in a testy mood tonight. She alerts Bateman he is forgetting something and it's the ring. He drops to a knee and puts the ring on her finger and they kiss.

They are interrupted by Titus O'Neil, Percy Watson and AJ. They come out telling their usual jokes. O'Neil says they should have their own show on the WWE Network: "Young and the Fish Lips." Oooooook then. Bateman suggests they get out of the ring. AJ tries to tell jokes. The crowd boos. She says Maxine and her ring have one thing in common: Both cheap and plastic.

O'Neil says they've gone out and found Maxine's father so Bateman can officially ask for her hand in marriage. He says they found him deep down in the Atlantic Ocean and pull a fish out of a bag. Bateman charges but Watson sidesteps him and throws him over the top. This is a fail.

Striker comes out and books a six-person tag here tonight. I can hardly contain my excitement.

Match #1 - Jimmy & Jey Uso (San Francisco, Calif.) vs. Tyson Kidd (Calgary, Alberta) & Johnny Curtis (Westbrook, Maine)

Kidd and Curtis do a good job of isolating Jimmy, working over his leg. Jimmy tries to push Curtis off but Curtis is able to scoot back into his corner. Kidd in now and gets shoved off to the outside. He barely stops Jimmy from making the tag but Jimmy rallies again and gets the tag to Jey.

Jey running wild on both Curtis and Kidd. He hits the big butt bomb on Curtis but Kidd breaks up the pin attempt. Then he kicks Jey and goes for a cannonball onto both Usos from the apron but they catch him and throw him into the dasher. In the ring, Jey hits a Samoan Drop and Jimmy follows with a Superfly Splash and that's it.

Winners via pinfall: Jimmy & Jey Uso

Match #2 - Kaitlyn (Houston, Texas) vs. Tamina (Pacific Islands)

Kaitlyn works a leg scissors around the body early but Tamina takes over. Kaitlyn rallies and lands some downward elbows to Tamina's shoulder, but Tamina stands and just wallops Kaitlyn and goes back to work with a chinlock. Kaitlyn, though, fights out and hits a side slam and that ends it.

Winner via pinfall: Kaitlyn

Match #3 - Titus O'Neil (Tampa, Fla.), Percy Watson (Miami, Fla.) & AJ (Union City, NJ) vs. JTG (Brooklyn, NY), Derrick Bateman (Cleveland, Ohio) & Maxine (Tampa, Fla.)

JTG and Bateman control Watson and isolate him in their corner. Bateman with a rear chinlock but Watson gets to a vertical base and hits a kick that downs Bateman. Watson tags in O'Neil and he comes in on fire. Big clothesline for O'Neil. He hits a forearm in the corner and hits the ropes but Bateman comes out and drills him with a dropkick. Watson and JTG get tangled up and then AJ comes in and spears Maxine and they go to the floor. Bateman's looking at that while O'Neil recovers and ends up walking right into the Clash of the Titus and that is all she wrote for tonight.

Winners via pinall: Titus O'Neil, Percy Watson & AJ
