This Week's Challenge: None.
Is there any point to these challenges anymore? Titus will probably win each week from now on anyway.

I kinda liked the opening skit, especially when Striker was named Titus' tag team partner. Titus needs major work on the mic because a bunch of words coming out of his mouth didn't make much sense.

I laughed pretty good when Kozlov came out in JTG-like gear. I must admit, gotta give props to Kozlov for becoming that midcard, entertaining character like Santino. JTG's music played even though Kozlov won. Just was weird to me. Planking on JTG! Win!

Have I said already that I'm jealous of Hornswoggle? Grr.

Ha, Grisham and Regal making fun of Striker's pro wrestling win-loss record. Hornswoggle and AJ should not be on commentary. Striker really botched that sunset flip when he went for more flare on the move. Yeah, stick to being the host of NXT.

Yeah, I thought this episode stunk.
