WWE NXT 1/24/13

We open on Shawn Michaels in the ring. He announces a tournament for the first NXT tag team champions.

The Wyatt Family vs. Tatsu/Watson: Percy Watson had a really nice hot tag, but the Wyatt Family was just too much. A basic tag match, but you know, that’s what this was supposed to be.

TO THE BACK. Dusty, Alex Riley and Derrick Bateman talk, but Corey Graves comes out and interrupts. Riley calls him, “Circus boy.” Um. OK. Derrick sings circus music. Then, Dusty sings circus music before stating, “Not even Jake Carter wanted to be your partner.” Oh Dusty. No one is supposed to know that these guys used to team up.

Alicia Fox vs. Sasha Banks: Alicia has on an amazing 60s stewardess outfit. Regal talks about rapping. Sometimes. Sasha has an amazing headscissors. Sasha counters a bodyslam into a small package for the win.

Paige video: I have nothing but good things to say.

Oksana interview to set up her match with Paige next week.

Video for Connor O’Brian, which was pretty fucking awesome. Glad he has a job.

Corey Graves vs. Jake Carter: “You’re thinking of me when you’re thinking 12 steps. I’ve cracked all of them.” Regal is so great on commentary. Just perfect and he says the right things at the right time. Nice and easy, huh? Quick match with Graves up. His finish is getting over, because he wins matches with it. That’s how you do it.

Adrian Neville/Oliver Grey vs. 3MB: Neville and Grey go up here, with the finishing Adrian’s spinning thing. Again, nice and simple.

Axl Keegan vs. Big E. Langston: Babyface Big E. > Heel Big E.

Conor O’Brian appears on the screen setting up a match in two weeks.

A good week of NXT. Quick matches. Fueds being belt. Matches for the next week. Well done, NXT. Keeping it simple works.
