WWE NXT Recap: Reks & Hawkins Gone, Striker Back, Maxine & Curtis Handcuffed Together
The show begins with a video package, narrated by Reks & Hawkins, detailing their adventures since Regal took over for Striker.
Percy Watson vs. Johnny Curtis w/ Maxine
Maxine joins commentary, beside Regal. They talk about the kidnapping of Striker and Maxine blames Curtis. Watson and Curtis go back and forth. Watson hits an armdrag then gets driven, throat-first onto the top rope for it.
Watson is on the defensive. Curtis stands on him, boot on the throat, in the corner. Maxine denies a relationship with Regal as Curtis continues his domination. Regal tells Maxine a random, silly story about his tailored suit. She doesn't follow; nor do we really.
In the ring, Watson works his way up from a side head lock and is able to lift Curtis for a side suplex. Both men get up at the same time with Watson landing some punches and a couple of standing dropkicks. Watson continues his momentum with a flying clothesline and an overhead belly-to-belly suplex. Watson hits the Heisman and gets a 2. Curtis tries to fight back with a neck breaker attempt but Watson counters and drops him on his face for the pin.
Winner by pin: Percy Watson
Regal grabs the mic and tells Percy he's a future superstar and asks Curtis to join him for Maxine's match. Curtis does, but complains that he has to take a shower.
Maxine vs. Kaitlyn w/ Derrick Bateman
Bateman joins commentary also. He says that he and Kaitlyn are a couple. Maxine screams as Kaitlyn applies a body scissors. She elbows her way out and kicks Kaitlyn square in the jaw and gets a 2 count. Maxine holds a sitting Kaitlyn from behind with her legs as she chops her in the chest. After another near fall she goes to a rear chin lock.
Curtis denies any involvement in the Striker kidnapping and agrees with Regal that Maxine is a horrible person. Kaitlyn recovers and sends Maxine into ropes and hits a crossbody for a 2 count. She begins driving Maxine's head into the turnbuckle. Maxine scouts a charging attempt and drop toe-holds Kaitlyn, face-first, into the turnbuckle. Maxine then applies a dragon sleeper with a body scissors. Kaitlyn falls to her knees and taps.
Winner by submission: Maxine
Regal asks Maxine to "come here." He says she and Curtis have to remain together while on NXT. He produces a contract that they must sign stating that Maxine is his manager, or they're fired. Both are reluctant. The sleeping crowd chants "sign it." After Maxine signs it, Regal grabs her wrist to shake hands and Regal handcuffs the two together. He dismisses them and they are not happy as they walk away.
Darren Young is in the locker room as a singing Titus O'Neil approaches. Young complains about O'Neil's shenanigans in the past few weeks regarding Tamina, and Titus tells him not to worry. He produces some papers from John Laurinaitis stating that they are going to Smackdown. Young says, "Tamina Who?" and they start dancing.
Matt Striker is in a mirror with a concentrated look on his face. He turns toward the camera and we see he has Hawkins' cane. He stares at the cane as he smiles sadistically and gets serious again.
RAW Rebound: a video is shown of the Punk/Jericho feud prefaced by a graphic of Jericho and the words: "The following is a Public Service Announcement from Jerichoholics Anonymous," similar to the Cody Rhodes "Embarrassing 'Mania Moments."
