The Joey Styles’ spoiler post on twitter was blown way out of proportion. Before NXT ended, Joey Styles apparently had enough and blew the ending of the show, posting that Aksana would be eliminated. WWE immediately followed up with an apology calling Styles’ actions “unprofessional” and “unacceptable.”
WWE has the nerve to call Styles unprofessional when their broadcast team is given the liberty to disparage the product that they call. During the broadcast, Michael Cole raised a sign that read, “End the Pain.” So it’s okay when Michael Cole does it because it’s his character? But let Joey Styles mutually feel the same and it’s considered unacceptable? Maybe if WWE spent half the effort on improving the show rather than producing a show that is barely acceptable for their own website, then their own employees would not feel a need to backlash.
As for Aksana being eliminated, it was obvious two weeks ago. The second that Aksana slapped Goldust, the tallies were against her. No one bought that this sweet Lithuanian girl–who pronounces WWE, “Double-U, Double-U, E!”–was now a heel.
The writing was on the wall, because her angle ended when Goldust returned the Million Dollar Belt back to Ted DiBiase. This, if anything, was a clear indication that Aksana’s days in the WWE were numbered.
With NXT ending in two weeks, finally, the three women that remain are AJ Lee, Naomi Knight, and Kaitlyn. After seeing all three women in action: AJ still remains a prominent contender to win the competition, showcasing an amazing display of natural wrestling ability.
As for the other two that remain: Naomi may be athletic, but she was sloppy in the ring. Relying too much on reaching new heights, she oftentimes crashes and burns. Understandable since she only has one year of wrestling experience under her belt. Then there’s the girl next door, Kaitlyn. Take nothing away from Kaitlyn, she has nice legs, a nice smile, a nice everything. But when it comes to wrestling talent, Kaitlyn is the definition of “rookie.”
Kaitlyn had the following to say in regards to one of my twitter posts:
I’m still learning! My first match ever was on NXT. In my way to be being the chuck norris of WWE.
No one should fault Kaitlyn for her inexperience, because she is simply filling a vacant spot left by Aloisa. But her inexperience is evidence that WWE should consider signing women who have actually wrestled before. Because, as Joey Styles would concur, filling the show with trivia competitions is boring.
Final Thoughts: On NXT, Kaitlyn brought up a great point, what if NXT were high school, who would they be? Namoi would be the jock because she’s always in the mood for physical competition. AJ is the classic geek because she tends to be knowledgeable of WWE facts. Are we sure that Howard Finkel isn’t her WWE Pro?
As for Kaitlyn, she would be the Prom Queen because every guy in WWE seems to have their eye on her, including Matt Striker, Josh Matthews, and Dolph Ziggler. So we know she’s beautiful, but she is also vindictive. Many times Kaitlyn has fired back at her NXT Pro Vickie Guerrero in the worst way. Knowing that she could have Dolph Ziggler if she wanted, imitating her in a costume contest on Halloween. Kaitlyn if anything, has possibly the best chance of earning a full-time contract in WWE based on her looks and attitude.
