Striker is taking a beating in the ring. Jack is now taking the brunt of Cole. Cole brings up Zack Ryder’s show and how it gets more hits than NXT. Cole points out that Regal has no place to take offense to JTG running his mouth on him when Regal has done it his entire career. Cole likes JTG and his attitude.

They pose in the ring with the looking over them. Jack closes the show. Cole hears his name and is astonished to hear it for the first time.
And that’s it folks. The show’s over.
This week’s thoughts will be kept short this week.
1) Percy Watson showed up tonight as Titus’s Tag team partner and looked good. Not excellent great, but had a good showing in the ring. Here’s looking to see more of him soon. The signature glasses which we had known him by are, however, gone.
2) Hornswoggle is missing, again. AJ now suffers from the lack of Irish Charm. Apparently the Bella twins who’s getting some Irish Charm instad, if you know what I mean. *wink, wink, nudge, nudge*
3) It was nice to see Cole on NXT till he opened his mouth and destroyed everything on this show. We talk about CM Punk being a pipe bomb. Cole tonight was a predator drone loaded to bear. No one, nothing got spared the wrath of Cole. Every single argument except for elimination that you hear about NXT on the internet from the Haters, a Canadian, two Irishmen, and a Smackdown recapper, came up tonight. *Ding!*
4) The Usos appeared tonight. We have no clue why. Did tonight’s match mean the end of Striker and Regal vs. JTG and Darren Young? It could be. Darren got a clean pin on Striker again this week. We’ll find out next week.
5) Yoshi Tatsu’s face has changed on the NXT website to the Noh Theater version “Dark Yoshi” (as he calls it) that debuted last week.
6) Yes. I am planning to Photoshop a Bella Twin\Hornswoggle Palm Beach image. With the snappy comments I made in this week’s recap, How could I not! It will lead off next’s week recap if it gets done.
In tribute to Cole’s work on NXT this week, I’m leaving off with some more Extreme this week. WARHEADS.
