9/26/12 NXT

Michael McGillicutty vs. Bo Dallas: **

Leo Kruger vs. Jake Carter: *1/4

Richie Steamboat vs. Kassius Ohno: ***

McGillicutty and Bo start things off. Crowd somehow is alive for least they're chanting stuff with each strike that I'm too lazy to figure out. Good competitive match here. I'd call it a pretty lame heel finish. Holding onto the ropes then capitalizing afterward.

Finally saw a video package on Paige where she actually speaks, really liked it.

Jake Carter is "your girlfriend's favorite." How original. He faces Leo Kruger here. Nice stuff from Kruger, seemingly toying with Carter at times like Jake was some animal in South Africa. Kruger gets the win with his version of a cutter. Crowd wasn't really into it much.

Ryback on NXT to destroy two jobbers. Ryback's singlet got torn, so I guess the big man's pissed now. Fans buying into the "Feed me more" line. Shellshock on both guys for the win.

Steamboat and Ohno go at it. Should be a pretty good feud for NXT. Lots of chops here, Richie channels a lot of his famous dad's moveset. Hard-hitting encounter with several near falls. Nice crowd reaction. Awesome finish. Ohno goes for his rolling elbow, Steamboat ducks, and inside cradle gets three for Richie. Considering the much smaller crowd, it was really good stuff. More than worthy to be put in front of 10,000+.

Kassius with the rolling elbow shot to the back of the head post-match. Crossface-like move we saw last week put on Richie. Need five refs to pull KO off. Should be a nice feud here, fellas.
