4/4/12 NXT

Percy Watson vs. Tyler Reks: *3/4

Natalya vs. Kaitlyn: 3/4*

Jimmy Uso & Jey Uso vs. Titus O'Neil & Darren Young: *1/4

Michael McGillicutty vs. Derrick Bateman: **

Percy faces Reks to start the show. And no one cares for either of them -- or Hawkins. Funny how Laurinaitis doesn't want Hawkins or Reks, so Regal basically seems forced to take them. Reks with a hammerlock slam, don't see that often. Working on Percy's left shoulder. Decent comeback from Watson, good counter into a rollup for three. Post-match, Reks and Hawkins want to gang up on Percy, but Regal steps in and would suspend both for six weeks if they touched Watson.

McGillicutty is trying to spill his guts to Natalya about having to live up to the family name. Natalya doesn't buy any of it. At least this storyline has my attention.

Kidd on commentary this week for the divas match. Kaitlyn has new music and is now the girl next door. Wasn't that AJ's role before? Regal inquires about Kidd and Natalya, haha. Strictly professional -- on camera, at least. Awkward commentary between Kidd and Regal. And that, friends, is how you lock in that Sharpshooter. Perfectly done.

Darren Young got Tamina a coconut tree? I hope it's a baby tree. ROFL, reservations at McDonald's?! That was awesome. Or awful.

Usos vs. Titus and D-Young this week. DY thrown to the outside in what was a weird few seconds. Tamina looks at DY funny. Titus calls for Darren, but he's nowhere to be found. Samoan drop and a splash wins it for the Usos. More tension between Titus and DY....

My head hurts just watching this whole Curtis/Maxine kidnapper dealie. I don't know why I even subject myself to watching it. Oh look, Reks and Hawkins are the kidnappers. Now my head really is all messed up. Thanks a lot!

Bateman was in control for the first half of the match and looked pretty good. MM's basic moveset was too damn slow-paced for me. Nice comeback from Bateman. Even saw a couple new moves from him. Liked MM's attempt at a Sharpshooter to bring the storyline back to the forefront. Kidd comes out to "applaud" MM post-match. Should be good next week.
