NXT 7/19/12: Twice the Divas matches!

21 Jul

This isn’t like any average NXT episode. This episode actually featured TWO Divas matches, how many times can us Divas fans actually say that?? As advertised last week, Raquel Diaz would be making her “ugliness tour” debut this week. Oh, and not to add on to the Diva excitement, but there is ALSO a backstage segment. WHAT?! Yeah, like I said ‘unlike an average episode’.

First match of the night was the original NXT Redemption Divas between Tamina and Kaitlyn. In an interesting twist, Kaitlyn would be taking the role as the heel in this match-up. This battle is definately going to be a battle of strength, as the orignal NXT announcer crew said in the last season (redemption, yes we miss you yellow ropes), both of these women can bench 300 pounds and to add on top of that, both of these women can stand their own ground so this is going to be a great match between them.

Kaitlyn made a great effort to try to take down the generation Diva, even smack-talking the referee, not that that’s going to get her far or anything… just saying and also using him as a guard, right on girl! One of my personal favorite moments in the match was when Kaitlyn applied a submission on Tamina, and Tamina was able to use her power to lift Kaitlyn up and in exchange gives miss Kaitlyn a somoan drop. After a long, and good match between these two as predicted, Tamina climbed to the top rope and delivered a superfly splash to pick up the victory over Kaitlyn.

Raquel Diaz’s package was shown before she starts heading to the ring with her own headset, talking some more trash. Luckily, Paige is now face on this show (well, for now) as her name is being chanted, because of how talented she is. Surpringly this match wasn’t that bad, I wasn’t expecting Diaz to hold her own since Paige is much more experienced and Raquel has a lot of sloppy moments in her matches down in FCW but she kind of impressed me in this maybe her and Paige have some kind of “chemistry”, who knows. Toward the ending, Paige goes to kick at Raquel but she grabs her leg and throws her down to the mat. Raquel hits the gory bomb on Paige (Who sold that very awkardly but oh well) to pick up the victory on her debut match of NXT. Paige is definately going to get the “jobber” status at the moment.

What really makes me happy though is the fact that WWE is now adding more backstage segments in. For me, that’s one of the reasons that got me hooked during the NXT Redemption season, and of course the long, lengthy matches that they give the underated talent there. In a surprise backstage segment, Alex Riley is walking backstage where he finds Aksana. Aksana, being the vixen she is, starts flirting with Riley until her boyfriend, Antonio Cesaro shows up. Aksana rushes to his arm accusing Riley of hitting on her. Cesaro yells at him saying that “if you hit on his girl, then he will kick your teeth down your throat”. This sets up Alex Riley vs Antonio Cesaro for next week.
