1/4/12 NXT

Alex Riley vs. Michael McGillicutty: **1/4

Maxine vs. Kaitlyn: DUD

Trent Barreta vs. Curt Hawkins: **

Derrick Bateman vs. Darren Young: *

Now WWE's resorted to bringing back NXT alums. Let's start with Michael McGillicutty! Really...the natural? Generic music and not the best gimmick. Now Alex Riley? He's really fallen out of favor to be back on NXT, huh? A-Ry with the cheap pop. Brawl! We got a match! Regal can't say "McGillicutty." Not a bad match here by any means. Actually better than I thought it would be.

I heard AJ's music play, but they advertise Kaitlyn vs. Maxine. Huh?

Speaking of the divas match, it's next. Kaitlyn and Maxine...I still shudder from the Season 3 "memories." Loving Kaitlyn's ring attire. Going with the athletic look, with short shorts. Works for me! Maxine breaks out a standing Dragon Sleeper and it's over. Sounds about right...a quick match.

Hawkins and Barreta wrestle...and Reks is still playing video games on his portable gaming device (didn't really look or care to see what it was). Again, decent here. Seems like this is the place for the lower midcard talent.

Announcers say Titus will not be here this week as he sells last week's beatdown. Young continues his decent heel work.

Main event doesn't last very long. Maxine and Curtis distract Bateman with the "we're getting married in two weeks in Vegas" dealie. Cheap win and a lame finish to what was otherwise a somewhat watchable show -- well, at times.
