12/28/11 NXT

Justin Gabriel vs. Heath Slater: ***1/4

Tyson Kidd vs. Percy Watson: *1/2

Derrick Bateman vs. Johnny Curtis: *

Wait, NXT is about to get to 100 episodes? Cool, I guess. Vintage Daniel Bryan reference!

Justin Gabriel gets a homecoming for NXT, although he really got no pop. Slater, yeah, he also got no reaction. At least the fans like wrestling matches. Two Season 1 guys to kick things off. Striker with an Eli Cottonwood reference! Tremendous match here, especially for NXT standards. I'd welcome this match on any WWE show. Gabriel pulls an AJ Styles and does the 450 that way. Love it.

Again, Percy Watson with no crowd reaction. Damn, even Tyson Kidd really got nothing. Darren Young is getting comfortable in his heel role, and frankly, that's where he belongs.

I'm getting nauseated with this love triangle thing. And Aksana doesn't really help matters. "Johnny King Curtis Iaukea?" Really, Striker? Maxine came out mid-match during Bateman/Curtis. Average match here. Now Maxine sides with Curtis after that text she saw Bateman apparently send to Teddy Long. All this means is the storyline probably continues. Meh.
