WWE had voting open for little while asking who should win Season 5. It is no longer open. Not sure what to make of that.
For the Mexican Crowd, XNT submits them the awesomeness that is an NXT Challenge. This one was worth 15 points. This was the hope for Bateman to get some points to get back into the mix. He never had an opportunity to get any points to date. However Bateman is DQ’ed and Titus now has 45 points. This sets up the Main Event.
NXT is definitely working on Hawkins and Tyler Rex. And this week we got a hurt Hawkins supporting Rex in a match against Yoshi. Yoshi this week is without his face paint. It’s likely that it’s gone for good. On the other hand, the Mask is still around and that’s a feature I do like. The Uso show up at the end, to keep the feud between Hawkins and Rex going.
Maxine is on a losing streak right now. And seeing her lose and be angry with Bateman is hilarious fun. It will be interesting were they go with this next week. Does Bateman show up? I hope so. This power couple is a great pairing. I would love to see this on the main roster.
JTG was a great addition for Bateman for the main event. Granted this choice is a result of Darren Young getting suspended. JTG bumped great for Titus. Percy bumped great for JTG and Bateman. Titus looked powerful. And then Bateman. Oh my! Bateman found a new plane and channeled his inner Ultimate Warrior. Great ending to boot as well. This is a match which I will be nominating for WV’s MOTY.
