11/21/12 NXT

Paige vs. Alicia Fox: *

Big E Langston vs. Camacho: 1/4*

Bronson vs. Nick Rogers: N/A (squash)

Luke Harper vs. Mike Dalton: N/A (squash)

Trent Barreta Richie Steamboat vs. Kassius Ohno: **1/2

Kassius Ohno backstage interview, vowing to get the last laugh on Barreta. Will Ohno reveal how dangerous he really is?

Alicia Fox and Paige start things off. Alicia is a Fox-alicious diva, sure. Not bad to start; Alicia showed a bunch of athleticism herself. Crowd is pro-Paige. "Paige Turner" is Paige's finisher, looks like she grabs her opponent's leg and snaps the opponent onto her back. Kinda looks like a version of the Angle Slam, but without picking the opponent up off the canvas.

Big E Langston and Camacho next. Remembeer Vickie put that bounty on Langston. Langston is a lot better off pounding the chalk everywhere than talking, but even that isn't saying much right now. Camacho going solo because Hunico's injured. At least the "Five!" chant is over with the crowd. Langston hits his finisher and gets three, but he wants five. Another finisher and Big E counts his own five-count. Then another finisher to send the ol' message to the locker room.

Barreta's been taken out, and Leo Kruger is nearby with a sinister look.

Bronson beats Nick Rogers in a methodical squash. Love the heelhook finisher, but I hope he can slap it on quicker than that.

Promo for TLC. Otunga with his lawyer stuff to promote the PPV. Awesome to have Sheamus come in with a chairshot at the end.

Bray Wyatt sits in a rocking chair on the stage as Luke Harper battles Mike Dalton. Harper's from Butte, Montana. At least I know there's a 5-pound calzone there. Sidewalk slam ends the squash.

Backstage brawl between Rollins and Jinder in some pre-taped segment. Fitting that led right into the Punk celebration segment at the end of RAW, where Rollins, Ambrose, and Reigns took Ryback out for the second straight night.

Ohno promo. He knows trent's hurt, so Ohno wants the ref to raise his hand. Rhodes has a replacement: Richie Steamboat. Richie skins the cat and soars through the air like his dad. Impressive stuff from Ohno, as usual. Richie with the comeback. Richie with the Slingblade finisher for the win. Nice match here.

Team Hell No advertised for next week's show. Woohoo.
