Regal says something has been brought to his attention as he hints about where Striker is. Josh is trying to get info out of Regal with no success. Regal is aghast at the info Maxine gave her.

Percy manages to take control of the match. Regal says he sees less wasted motion from Percy. Then Regal gets up and leaves commentary with Maxine. This distracts Percy and Curtis rolls him up for the win.

The tree Darren was going to give her last week. She likes and he gives her a kiss. Tamina walks off with the pot and encounters Darren. Darren asks where she got it. Tamina says Titus gave it to her. She can’t wait to plant it. She walks off and Titus comes in hopping on one leg. Darren says What’s his problem.

We then cut to Kaitlyn and Bateman. Kaitlyn asks Bateman is he longs for the simpler days of NXT when there were talk the talk challenges and capture the flag. Bateman doesn’t.

Michael McGillicutty vs. Tyson Kidd

Mike is out first. Josh calls this one of the most bizarre episodes of NXT. Regal is quiet. Josh puts over the feud between Tyson and Mike. It leads into a package between the two leading to this match. This feud started between who’s better and evolved into the fact that Tyson Kidd family doesn’t come the business. Tyson is out next. Regal says these two may have found happiness in that they have found their perfect foes. The match starts establishing Mike’s strength vs. Tyson’s Speed. Regal says these two will be fighting each other for years to come. Tyson knocks out Mike out of the ring and then uses the ropes to get a drop kick before Mike pulls the ring apron skirt to catch Tyson. Tyson is tossed over the commentary table as we head to ads.

Back to the action, Mike has a lock on Tyson and is in control of the match. Regal calls what is going here as a game of wits between these two. Mike takes control of the early match. Regal takes his time to put over Mike saying that he’s stalking his prey. The two collide in the middle of the ring. It resets the match and Tyson goes on offense fast and hot. Tyson gets pushed to the ropes, when Mike comes to slide into him. Tyson pulls the apron turning the tables on him. Tyson goes for a cross body, but Mike counters it. Mike goes for a pin, but Tyson kicks out. The crowd is huge into the match now. Mike is in control with a throw. Instead of going for a cover, Mike puts Tyson in a sharpshooter. He manages to get a rope break. Mike grabs Tyson and tries to lock him up. Tyson uses the time Mike takes to turn the tables. It looks like he’s going to go for the sharpshooter, but instead gets his legs around Mike’s head. It’s all over as Mike has to tap out.

Winner: Tyson Kidd

After the match, Regal says he wants to see more these two. He promises that this won’t be the last time these two meet each other. And that’s something we can all be thankful for!


Grash Says…

The storyline involving Striker has taken a huge step forward. Maxine turned on Reks and Hawkins and set them up for a fall in Regal’s eyes. Striker is free, and has gone rouge. Bateman and Kaitlyn are heroes.

Percy now has a legit claim against Maxine being a distraction at ring side. Though the first time, the foot job, he managed to win out his match. This week with Maxine getting Regal to leave ring side, it provided the distraction for Curtis to win. So this is one interaction to see how it progresses.

Finally, Tyson Kidd and Michael McGillicutty wrestled one of the best NXT Matches ever. It’s easily in the discussion with Jericho vs. Bryan from Season 1, and Yoshi Tatsu\Tyson Kidd Necklace on a pole match from last year. Jersey Viper and Mr. V have already said this was the match of the week. You can see it show up in the MOTY Project as well.

Oh yea, we got more Brock beating on Cena from Monday Night Raw. Since it got shown on NXT, I get to comment on it. My only comment this week is Cena doing only slight better than Herring. Don’t know who he is? Watch the Gif below to find out!
