11/14/12 NXT

Conor O'Brian & Kenneth Cameron vs. Yoshi Tatsu & Percy Watson: 1/2*

Corey Graves vs. Oliver Gray: DUD

Layla vs. Aksana: *

Roman Reigns vs. Chase Donovan: N/A (squash)

Jinder Mahal vs. Bo Dallas: *3/4

Jinder basically calls Bo Dallas a nobody, so a rematch tonight with the #1 contender spot again on the line. Well played, Bo. Definitely see a resemblance to his father.

Yoshi Tatsu and Percy Watson are still employed? Conor O'Brian with a shaved head. Better than being labeled a rat. A virtual squash here. Fall of Man (high-low) wins it for Ascension. Crowd pretty much dead for this one.

Layla with the "real talk" reference! Win. Aksana and Layla in a match? Um, not really a win.

Corey Graves to the ring. Reminds me of a non-freestyle John Cena thuganomics guy. Going with the jean jacket and tattoos instead. Graves is a body modification specialist. Couple of botches that looked like a mix of Gray being too green and lack of chemistry. Oliver Gray jobs tonight to the Savior of Misbehavior. Graves uses some type of leglock for a submission win. It wasn't the worst thing ever, but I thought this one was very forgettable.

Looks like that Graves/Gray match was taped in October (middle rope is still pink).

Big E Langston promo again?! Basically, he's not worried about the bounty. Didn't like the promo. Too rigid, seems unsure what to say. No passion or flow to his promo other than the word "five." Camacho with a forearm to the back of Langston's neck and a quick taunt before taking off. That was a huge waste of my time.

Layla and Aksana at least got more time than the divas match on RAW. Aksana does the sensual crawling on the apron instead of attacking Layla. Yeah, that was smart. At least Aksana knows how to apply a headscissors. Layla with a quick high kick to the head for three.

Bray Wyatt taped segment. I love the preaching stuff he does. Just wish he would be wrestling more.

Roman Reigns with a pretty quick win over Chase Donovan. Reigns now dubbed as that big blue-chip prospect.

Bo's entrance video is a bit generic with some patriotic feel to it. Jinder controls most of the offense, then the short Bo comeback. Bo then into the middle turnbuckle, then Camel Clutch from Jinder for the win. Too bad. Woulda been a nice win for Bo. Jinder continues the assault until Seth Rollins makes the save. Not sure yet when that NXT Title match will take place (no, I don't read spoilers on this stuff).
