WWE NXT: Gabriel returns in 6-man action
By MATT BISHOP - SLAM! Wrestling


Tonight on WWE NXT: The never-ending season rolls on as this show features the return of Justin Gabriel to action after suffering an elbow injury at WrestleMania. He teams with Percy Watson and Derrick Bateman to battle Michael McGillicutty, Johnny Curtis and JTG. Should be a good one!

And we are TAPED! from Baton Rouge, La. Josh Mathews and William Regal are our commentators and Matt Striker is our host. This show is presented in WWEHD (TV-PG,V).

Match #1 - Curt Hawkins (Queens, NY) & Tyler Reks (Parts Unknown) vs. Jimmy & Jey Uso (San Francisco, Calif.)

It's the Usos isolating Hawkins in the early going and working quick tags and the like. Jey hits Hawkins with a superkick and goes to the top for the splash, but Reks pulls Hawkins out of the ring. Jey is still on the top, so he just comes flying down onto them both.

We're back and Hawkins and Reks are in control. Reks, though, can't stop the Usos from making the switch and he is getting run over. Bubba Bomb connects for Jimmy and he follows with the butt bomb for two. It all breaks down and Reks eats a Samoan drop but Hawkins breaks up the pin. With the referee trying to get the other Uso out of the ring, Hawkins and Reks combine for a double-team power slam and get the win.

Winners via pinfall: Tyler Reks & Curt Hawkins

Gabriel with some kicks and then a flying forearm. Sitout slam connects by McGillicutty breaks up the pin. It breaks down. Bateman hits a suicide dive on several people. In the ring, Gabriel hits a tornado DDT on JTG and that does it.
