* During the recent WWE Investor Quarity Conference call, it was announced that Superstars and NXT would move to the WWE Network when it starts up.
* A few weeks ago, Darren Young was suspended for violation of the Wellness Policies. We found out that WWE has recently stepped up enforcement of “synthetic” drugs.
* Until further notice, I am happily using the term “BetaMax” to refer to the power couple of Maxine and Derrick Bateman.
It’s what Maxine wants, and I don’t want to make her angry. Though, she’s cute when pissed off!
The show starts with a “lovely” package of the hot and steamy romance of BetaMax. If you weren’t here last week, Bateman proposed to Maxine, and she said yes. With a focus on their luscious kiss, we get a heart transition to our theme.
“We Are Wild And Young!”
JTG’s music hits, he’s already in the middle of the ring. He asks “Hatersville”, what’s up? They cheer him. He’s getting a pop, while trying to get heat. He’s amused by it. JTG refers to Kim Kardasian divorcing after 72 days, and then introduces BetaMax. Derrick Bateman comes out carrying Maxine. They head into the ring, JTG high fives Bateman. Maxine takes JTG over the coals for NOT using the term BetaMax when introducing them. Bateman thanks him for the introduction and says he might be the best man. JTG whispers into his ear… ‘Best Fly Man”. Maxine looks over pissed and asks if he forgot anything.. Bateman says, “winning NXT”… Wrong. “How much I love you” is the next answer. Bizz… wrong again Bateman. Bateman looks over to JTG and he pulls out a case for him. It’s the ring. Bateman was in heat of the moment, wants to show the so-called southern gentlemen that chivalry is not dead, and most importantly “What 38 weeks of rookie salary can buy”. He opens the case. Takes the ring and kisses before putting it on her finger. They then kiss… Titus and crew come out. He makes fun of them kissing. Percy has a bag with him. Titus say they should have a show called the “Young and the Fish Lips”. The six go back at each other. Titus tells us that we’ve found Maxine’s Dad. Titus pulls from the bag, a fish. Percy does the voice of Fish dad. He says he doesn’t approve. Titus says he didn’t get take the bait. As in Bateman. Horrible, Horrible Joke. JTG has to hold Maxine back. Bateman rushes them and get tossed from the ring. Bateman and Maxine are livid. Titus starts singing “Under the Sea”. Striker comes out to clear this up. It will be a Six man tag with Titus, Percy, AJ vs BetaMax and JTG.

Back to work on Curtis and then takes out Tyson again. He goes for the pin, but Tyson saves it. . He does a jump from the apron, but gets caught and slammed on to the barrier. Back in the Ring Curtis gets slammed by Jay to get a super splash from Jimmy. That’s the pin for the win.

The Muppets and WWE Superstars antics from Raw (10/31/11).
Our weekly talk between AJ and Kaitlyn. AJ is sick about the idea that Bateman and Maxine could have kid. “Maxine would give birth to pure hate.” Kaitlyn is unconfident in saying she’s got Tamina. They give each other a terrorist fist pump and head out.

After the bell, Maxine is livid. Nuclear Vicky level of livid. It’s cute.
And that’s the show.
On the spoilers for this week’s show on Wrestleview, Benji Dotan brough up the issue of the Fish Joke. “Fish lips? Ironic when WWE is running an anti bullying campaign and the FACES are the ones calling names.” And I agree with him on this point. Here’s how I see the “Fish Lips” Joke. It’s not that it’s a bad joke. Well, it’s a very bad joke.(I concede that point). It’s a bad joke done well. Done way too well. The crowd last week got into a “Kiss the Fish” Chant during the main event. So it’s every effective. And that’s the problem. When Titus and Co. are pushing a bad joke this hard, they look like heels than they do faces. Yes Maxine deserves this. Oh holy hell does she deserve it. But why do The Faces need to steep to her level? Awkward!
I have to pull out the Divas match this week as being not particularly good in the area of match psychology. Nothing ever got in a good grove that made sense. Given what was going on, match probably went too long. Finally the ending of the match makes no sense. Kaitlyn blows a big move only to reverse right away into a move for the win when Tamina picks her up. I do not blame Kaitlyn and Tamina for this. Kaitlyn is still very very green. Tamina, is not quite the worker of high caliber yet. She’s working her way to it, but not there yet. So, the real blame falls on to whom ever worked out the format of this match.
A lot of people have been complaining about when this season will end. We got our answer today. “Nobody knows when the season will end.” And to be honest with you, I’m perfectly fine with it. And so should you.
Normally, I talk about what we learned this week. And unfortunately, I have to say nothing to talk about. Don’t get me wrong, this week NXT was entertaining. The best part of the show was Maxine’s rage, but after that it just felt like that the show was just …
… going through the motions.
