InsidePulse Wrestling’s WWE NXT Report
Announcers: Josh Matthews & Michael Cole
Report by: PK

Show starts with a recap of the Derrick Bateman/Maxine/Johnny Curtis love triangle. Maxine & Johnny Curtis get married tonight.

Lillian Garcia brings out the original voice of NXT, Michael Cole. Cole sits down at the table, and it looks like he will be joining Matthews tonight.

Titus O’Neil vs. Darren Young – No DQ
I don’t know what it is, but I really like Young’s theme music. Titus chases Young to start, and catches Young with a big boot for a 2 count. Titus with a sidewalk slam for 2. Titus tosses Young to the floor. Titus hits a powerslam on the floor, and then runs Young into the retaining wall. Titus tosses Young back in the ring, and Young is up quick, attacks Titus and then hits a Hangman’s Neckbreaker on the apron. Back in the ring, Young hits the Fireman’s Gutbuster for only a 2 count. Young would attempt it again, but Titus slides out, sends Young off the ropes and hits the Sky High powerbomb for the pin.
Winner – Titus O’Neil

Titus gets on the mic and thanks the fans…for absolutely nothing. He says that he was given a leprechaun for a Pro, who waddled his fat ass back to SD. He says that the fans have been dead weight the past 46 weeks (is that how long Season 5 has been going?), and he will be the top of the WWE.

Heath Slater vs. Percy Watson
Back and forth action throughout the majority of the match. The real entertainment is Cole & Matthews talking about the show. Cole keeps trashing the show, and asked what happened to the Redemption Points. He also wonders if Matt Striker is the GM of NXT…a valid question. Cole asks if we are still in a competition, and who is left. Matthews says that Young, Titus & Percy are left (according to, Percy is not & Bateman is). Cole then asks about Bateman, which Matthews corrects himself saying that not only is Bateman still part of the NXT roster, but he won a match that allows him to compete on SD sometime in the future (PK’s Note: if this is true, when that happens, he will have competed on SD more then Season 4 winner Johnny Curtis). Percy hits a Fireman’s Flapjack for the pin, and Matthews says that a win over a pro would have gotten Percy some good Redemption Points…man this season is a wreck.
Winner – Percy Watson

Maxine is getting her dress ready, and one of the Uso’s sneezes on it. After a ‘commercial’ break, she is badgering the backstage seamstress about something, and Curtis comes in the calm her down. Maxine walks away angrily. Kaitlyn strolls by, and Curtis tells her that he never had an official bachelor’s party, and wants to know if she wants to get weird. She walks away disgusted, calling Curtis a creep.

Yoshi Tatsu & Trent Barreta vs. Curt Hawkins & Tyler Reks
I’d really like it if Hawkins & Reks can make it to the main roster…maybe with the absence of Air Boom, they can. Trent & Hawkins start. Reks & Hawkins double team. Yoshi with a blind tag, leaps on Reks. Reks takes over the match, and he takes turns tagging in and out on Yoshi. Trent gets the hot tag, and he cleans house. Trent with a running knee for a 2 count. Trent with a twisting moonsault for on Reks for a 2 count until Hawkins breaks it up. The ref is trying to get Yoshi out of the ring, and while the ref is distracted, Hawkins hits Trent with is cane. Reks then hits the Burning Hammer for the pin on Trent.
Winners – Hawkins & Reks

Recap of CM Punk tearing up Johnny Ace on RAW, then Ace laying out Foley.

Matt Striker comes out as Elvis, looks like he will be performing the wedding. Curtis comes out in a tuxedo T-Shirt & a leather jacket, with some random guy by his side. Maxine comes out and asks who the guy is next to Curtis. Curtis says that he is Chris, he’s best man. Chris wants to meet Hillbilly Jim. Striker asks for the I Do’s, then asks if anyone opposes the marriage, this brings out Bateman. Bateman shows security footage of Curtis sending the fake email to Teddy Long. This is awful. Maxine then dumps Curtis, slapping him. Bateman & Curtis then brawl. Bateman hits the forward DDT to knockout Curtis. Bateman & Maxine leave together, with tons of boring chants in the backround and Cole just destroying the entire show. Awesome.
