1/11/12 NXT

Alicia Fox vs. Maxine: 3/4*

Trent Barreta vs.Tyler Reks: *3/4

Jimmy Uso & Jey Uso vs. JTG & Tyson Kidd: *1/4

Johnny Curtis vs. Alex Riley: 1/2*

So who is coming back this week in Laredo, Texas? Oh, it's Alicia Fox, a current WWE diva who was a pro in the all-rooke divas episode (NXT season 3). Oh, right, she was Maxine's pro. Shows how much of an impression that season had on me. OK, Maxine wins points for snapping at Striker. Woohoo, we got a catfight! And we have a match. Average stuff here, but better than the usual divas match.

Barreta, Reks, Hawkins...these three are just gonna be a part of the same stuff each week for a while, aren't they? I guess if it leads to good matches, I won't have reason to complain. Of course, there's one problem...they may not have the requisite time to put on a good show to begin with. Barreta did his part for sure. Yup, high-flying, agile moves make me want to watch the match. Really? A rollup for the win? Oh well. At least there were entertaining moments. Yoshi saves Barreta from a double-team beatdown.

Tag match with Usos against JTG/Kidd was next. You know, whatever happened to the Tyson Kidd who had the crown of hair and had real good singles matches? I want that Tyson to return. The guy's real talented in the ring. Perhaps not the best mic worker, but whatever. Let the guy do what he does best. Good finish there. JTG ate a good superkick.

Well, at least A-Ry is being used on NXT. Good prototypical look for a wrestler. Maybe something will pan out for him in time. Meanwhile, this whole cheesy love triangle with Bateman, Curtis, and Maxine is just boring me to death. Bateman's acting (heck, everyone's acting) has gotten to the point where I just fast-forward through the skits. Curtis has a cool finisher, one that I could have envisioned myself doing if I had the strength and the size for a pro wrestler. This match didn't last long. Bateman's saying this whole thing ends next week. Oh thank God.

Striker now calls Titus "T.O."? Good grief. Darren Young's music is annoying as heck. D-Young insults Titus and his kids. Isn't this what was done a few weeks ago, when Darren got his ass kicked? Yeah, smart move to do it again. So these two will finally fight in a No-DQ match next week on the 100th NXT episode in Vegas. I seriously hope this season ends soon.
