Last night’s edition of NXT was a testament to why WWE should not hire based on looks. The majority of the program is laden with pointless competitions that more-than-half of the time has nothing to do with being a women’s “wrestler.” There’s that dirty word again. But honestly, the first match of the night was an impromptu bout between Maxine and Kaitlyn, and stating that it was bad would be a serious understatement.
First off, the Pros had microphones which added little to nothing to the match. One would suspect that Vickie Guerrero would have been just a tad above awful since she’s always on a microphone. But all she kept talking about was for Kaitlyn not to ruin the sweatshirt she gave her. Who gives a damn about the sweatshirt. If Jerry Lawler was there to witness Kaitlyn covering the goods with a sweatshirt, he would have walked out. Which is exactly what the entire WWE Universe wanted to do during that match.
Second, Michael Cole, NXT’s play-by-play commentator, took a phone break during the match. The identity of who Cole was talking to, his mother, was more entertaining than the match.
Third, Kaitlyn botched so many moves that it even made Joey Styles reconsider the quality of WWECW. Kaitlyn’s inside cradle attempt was very slow to execute and agonizing to watch. Maxine, thankfully, saved us from any more torment by ending the match with a roll over.
NXT’s main event proved to be a sort of saving grace. Naomi and Kelly-Kelly took on the Bellas in tag team action. This match was a great opportunity for Naomi to compete in the ring with three WWE Pros. Though, Namoi only has a year of wrestling experience, she has the most promise out of any of the NXT rookies. She definitely has the attitude, the strength, and the athleticism to carry herself in the WWE. What she should concentrate on for the next several years is improving on ring-technique. She should seek out the services of Dave Finlay and Ron Hutchinson, who collectively trained Trish Stratus, Melina, and Beth Phoenix.
