5/30/12 NXT

Curt Hawkins & Tyler Reks vs. Jimmy Uso & Jey Uso: **

Kaitlyn vs. Tamina Snuka: -1/2*

Justin Gabriel, Percy Watson, & Derrick Bateman vs. Michael McGillicutty, JTG, & Johnny Curtis: *3/4

Hawkins and Reks start the show off in matching gear. A lot of pink and black. Nice Hart Foundation colors. I've watched the Usos do their Siva Tau entrance for a while now, and for me, the novelty has worn off. Wish they got more crowd reaction on their entrance. Usos are talented in the ring, though. They use the superkick too much, in my opinion. I appreciate their huge willingness to fly. Nice win for Hawkins and Reks.

ECW Unreleased: Volume 1 is coming out next Tuesday. Love it!

Kaitlyn and Tamina are friends, yet WWE decides to put them in a match. Maxine on commentary. Kaitlyn has now had this abnormally colored blonde hair for months. Not a fan of that. Two powerful divas in this match. Felt this was just a sloppy match overall. Horrible. Fans didn't care. Awkward looking ending. Good submission, but did Tamina mean to trip over Kaitlyn? And unfortunately, on the initial camera angle, you can't actually see Tamina tapping -- as WWE usually wants. You can see Tamina tapping on the replay, from a different camera angle.

Maxine is so muted down now. I liked crazy, unpredictable Maxine. It made her stand out that much more. Apparently now, they gave a similar gimmick to AJ.

Big Show video package from RAW. Excellent promo and destruction. I knew Show was better off heel....

Six-man tag ends the show. Best part was Regal mentioning something about transvestites during the heel entrances. Pretty lengthy here, which allowed all six to get good in-ring time. Pretty slow match, with Bateman's suicide dive being one of the only noteworthy moments. Gabriel didn't use a 450 splash. Instead, he now has a tornado DDT for a finisher. Less risky, so I like it.

Punk defends the WWE title against Kane on Smackdown! Awesome....
