WWE taped week’s edition of WWE NXT at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. Thanks to WNW reader Austin Watson for sending us text-message updates. Below are the results:
* Trent Barreta b. Curt Hawkins
– Curt controlled most of the beginning of the match. There were a couple of near falls. Trent got the win following a Tornado DDT. Overall solid opening match.
WWE NXT (Airing tonight on WWE.com):
* Todd Grisham comes out along with William Regal and Matt Striker. Striker and Maryse are in the ring now and Regal and Grisham assume the commentary position.
* This week’s challenge is a “mic contest” so they are dissing each other. It is up to the crowd to judge.
Darren Young wins the challenge.
* Titus O’ Neil b. Darren Young
Titus got the win when he connected a spinebuster following Hornswoggle grabbing Chavo’s leg (which distracted Darren Young).
* Vladimir Koslov & Connor O’ Brian b. JTG & Jacob Novak
– Vladimir Koslov & Connor O’ Brian won a dance contest.
* Lucky Cannon b. Byron Saxton
Lucky Cannon got the win after reversing the attitude adjustment. That concludes this week’s NXT.
