Hello everyone, and welcome to the latest trek to the land of the Sunshine State with this week’s FCW report. So, if you all are ready, then let’s get on with the show!
Our announcers this week are Chris Russo & Byron Saxton, and the ring announcer is Danielle Moinet.
FCW Divas Title: Audrey Marie def. Caylee Turner by pinfall to retain the title with the Round Up.
FLORIDA FEEDBACK: While both girls are still very green, they had a pretty decent match. Good effort by both of them.
The Queen of FCW Raquel Diaz comes out and cuts a promo, talking about how everything revolves around her and that soon, that all of FCW will be hers, starting with the FCW Divas Championship.
FLORIDA FEEDBACK: Diaz has slowly but surely become a pretty good talker, and it showed here. Nice job on the promo, good stuff.
Mr. Antonio Cesaro def. Xavier Woods by submission with a unique version of the Anaconda Vice.
FLORIDA FEEDBACK: Solid match between these two, although there were some definite lulls in the match during Cesaro’s control segment. But all in all, these two had chemistry and put on a solid match.
FCW General Manager Maxine is having an appointment with a therapist, who happens to be James Bronson. Maxine leaves after her ‘session’ is done but she forgot her purse. James takes something out of the purse and he turns away from the camera. Maxine returns to the room and she sees James putting on some of Maxine’s makeup.
FLORIDA FEEDBACK: All I can say about this is weird, very weird.
Seth Rollins def. Jinder Mahal by pinfall with the Avada Kedavra.
FLORIDA FEEDBACK: Decent match, but Rollins carried most of the action as Mahal is still lumbering and quite boring on his control sections. Good effort by Rollins to make it passable, Mahal not so much on the effort. When you can’t have a good match in developmental, that should say something about you as a worker, and for Mahal, it’s simply this, bad.
Main Event for the FCW Tag Team Titles: Brad Maddox & Briley Pierce (c) def. Epico & Hunico by pinfall to retain the titles when Pierce pinned Hunico with a rollup.
FLORIDA FEEDBACK: Pretty decent main event, although it went too long IMO. Epico & Hunico work well as a team, and I continue to like the odd couple dynamic with Pierce & Maddox. Nice flash finish with Pierce scoring the surprise rollup on Epico, and all 4 guys worked their tail to put on a good match, and I think they succeeded.
Overall, a pretty good show wrestling wise this week. However, on the downside, no angles were furthered, and it kind of hurt the overall feel of the show by not either starting or continuing any of the feuds we have seen built up over the last couple of months.
My Grade: B-
