[ REVIEWED BY BRAD DYKENS ]
IN THE RING
Matt Strikers + NXT Rookies (Conor O’Brian & Derrick Bateman & Jacob Novak & Brodus Clay & Johnny Curtis & Byron Saxton): Matt Striker said that eliminations are coming and Jacob Novak earned an immunity point last week. Striker said they would show their ability to entertain this week with a karaoke contest. Conor O’Brian sang King Sheamus’ entrance music (really bad). Derrick Bateman sang The Miz’s entrance music (also bad, but Daniel Bryan loved it!). Bateman also did another cheap pop “ragin’ cajun football rules!” Jacob Novak sang Dolph Ziggler’s entrance music (bad again). Brodus Clay sang Cody Rhodes’ entrance theme (he did quite well even though it killed his gimmick). Johnny Curtis sang Randy Orton’s theme song (probably the easiest pick but he butchered it). Byron Saxton sang the entrance music of Shawn Michaels. Since the fans voted they were obviously going to vote for Byron Saxton because of the Shawn Michaels reference. The immunity point goes to Byron Saxton!
NXT TAG TEAM MATCH
Ted DiBiase Jr. & Brodus Clay w/Maryse defeated Chris Masters & Byron Saxton: Chris Masters set up for the Masterlock on Ted Jr. but Byron Saxton tagged himself in. Saxton got in and ended up taking the Dream Street and getting pinned by DiBiase.
Derrick Bateman & Daniel Bryan: Derrick Bateman greeted his coach and talked about singing karaoke earlier. Bryan proceeded to teach Bateman a submission hold. Bateman then applied the hold on Bryan, but got a little carried away causing Bryan to kick him in the face to snap him out of it. Bryan told Bateman to go prepare for the obstacle course.
NXT ROOKIE PROFILE: Jacob Novak..
NXT OBSTICLE COURSE (ON STAGE)
Johnny Curtis defeated Jacob Novak and Byron Saxton and Conor O’Brian and Derrick Bateman and Brodus Clay: Matt Striker explained the rules of the obsticle course (an NXT staple). Jacob Novac did it in a time of 37.9 seconds. Byron Saxton did it in a time of 1.02.00 (still hurting from his match). Conor O’Brian did it in a time of 42.7 seconds (he fell over one of the walls). Derrick Bateman did it in a time of 35.7 seconds (he is in shape!). Johnny Curtis did it in a time of 34.8 (but he fell off the beam so he was disqualified). Brodus Clay was disqualified for pushing obsticles out of the way instead of going over them. Johnny Curtis got a second attempt and finished in 31.4 seconds to win the challenge – earning two immunity points!
NXT ROOKIE PROFILE: Johnny Curtis..
Jacob Novak & Vickie Guerrero + Dolph Ziggler: Jacob Novak introduced himself to Vickie Guerrero and kissed up to her a little bit, saying her rookie last season (Kaitlyn) was so ungrateful. Novak asked Vickie for some advice, and she was about to offer some when Dolph showed up. Dolph sent Vickie away and asked Jacob what the deal was. Dolph was totally jealous and told Jacob to go find a place to watch the main event by himself.
NXT SINGLES MATCH
