10/12/11 NXT

AJ vs. Maxine: *1/4

Jimmy Uso & Jey Uso vs. Curt Hawkins & Tyler Reks: ***

Percy Watson vs. Derrick Bateman: **

In Dallas, Texas, for this one! For those that don't know, Darren Young got a 30-day suspension, so we won't be seeing him for the next month or so. But does it matter? The season will still likely be going on when he returns anyway!

Bateman and Maxine start off the show and does the usual heel promo to suck up to Lauranaitis, diss the Cowboys fans, and woo Maxine. So wait, is Percy Watson gonna be Titus' "pro" now? Titus making sounds like he's leaking oil. Percy looks very presentable without those glasses.

Wait, Titus brought up his 30 redemption points! Maybe they do matter!

Wait, WTF? Striker's coming out again? Hey, he's the host again! Zing for Striker with the Sherri Martel reference. Divas match next!

Maxine's degree in criminology interested me. Very little crowd reaction while Maxine was on offense, but then the crowd finally got into it after AJ mounted a comeback. Shining Wizard is a good non-submission finisher for AJ.

Usos have one cool entrance...really like that stuff. Impressive dives to the outside by the Usos...channeling their inner Undertakers there. Nice long match here. Great last few minutes of action there. One of the best NXT matches in the show's history. Considering NXT has had a ton of paltry stuff, it was a nice treat to see.

Percy and Bateman had a respectable match here. Not a bad finisher for Percy.
