11/9/11 NXT

Tyson Kidd vs. Trent Barreta: **1/4

Jimmy Uso vs. JTG: DUD

Johnny Curtis & Derrick Bateman vs. Percy Watson & Titus O'Neil: *1/4

Johnny Curtis on NXT again? Well, at least he has the NXT ties, so I'm cool with that. He's still very green, and personally, I think Titus and Bateman are both better than Curtis on the mic. Oh, we have a Springer-like or Maury-like moment! Johnny went out with Maxine once! Tag match tonight!

Rock on RAW next Monday. Maybe they'll finally get that extra 0.2 of a ratings point!

Kidd and Barreta was real good. They were more grounded here in the early going, but more high-flying stuff came as the match progressed. Nice brainbuster from Kidd...don't see that too often. I like the half-crab finisher from Kidd. It looks like a variation of Chris Jericho's old Lion Tamer.

No comment on the segment with Bateman, Curtis, and Maxine.

Continuity! The Usos walk in while Tamina and JTG talk! Oh, JTG and Tamina are apparently dating for storyline purposes. Josh Mathews and Matt Striker getting testy on one another during this one. This was one boring match, and the crowd was dead for this one.

Not a bad main event (which basically comprised of four NXT alums, when you really look at it -- and five if you count Maxine). All have improved since I first saw them. Finally, Bateman actually won! But really...a high-low for a team finisher? Snooze.
