8/23 Shore's NXT Live Coverage: The season that never ends rolls into Canada
Aug 23, 2011 - 09:00 PM


By Chris Shore

WWE NXT on WWE.com
Live from Calgary, Alberta, Canada.


The opening video aired, and Todd Grisham and William Regal checked in on commentary. They tossed it up to Matt Striker. Striker tried to do his bit, but Darren Young interrupted him and said he was tired of Striker. Striker said they both had jobs to do, but Young cut him off. Young said his job has been beating Striker. He told Striker to get out of the ring.

Striker asked what he wanted. He said he would admit he couldn't beat Young. Young said he wanted Striker to admit Young was the future. Striker stalled and then said Young was the better man. He said he was the past, but Young was the future. He offered his hand to Young. Young shook it, but kicked him in the gut. Young hit a clothesline, and then William Regal ran him off before he could do more…

Backstage, Tyson Kidd found his locker trashed. He started bitching and cleaning it up. He hung up a travel bag for hanging clothes, and the weird Japanese (?) symbols we have seen around Kidd were on it…[C]

Shore's Slant: Boring opening, though it will be nice to see Regal get a little run. And either one of you who are watching can translate that Japanese (pretty sure) then send me an email with it.

1. Trent Beretta defeated Tyson Kidd 14:52. A "Let's go Tyson," chant broke out. They traded early rest holds with Kidd getting the cheers and Beretta getting the boos. Beretta hit a dropkick out of the air on Kidd for two, and the cut to commercial with no lead out…[C]

Back from commercial, Kidd hit a kick from the floor to the ring on Beretta. He followed up with a neckbreaker from the ring to the floor in a very nice spot. They ran a great Frankensteiner, roll through, Sharpshooter tease, roll-up near-fall that popped the crowd good. Very, nicely done.

Kidd locked in the single leg crab that made the crowd pop. Beretta made the rope. The video screen lit up with the Japanese symbols. Kidd waited for something, but nothing happened. He turned around into Beretta's tornado DDT/slice bread combo for a Beretta victory…[C]

Shore's Slant: This show is terrible, but they throw us matches like this. It wasn't a great match, but worth watching for the future of the business. Nice work.

The announce team setup a video that recapped Maxine returning last week. And then my feed froze. When it came back, Maxine was whispering something in Derrick Bateman's ear and walked off…AJ and Hornswoggle made her entrance…[C]

Shore's Slant: Damn. I thought the feed had died. I was about to take a victory lap. Teasing bastards.

2. Maxine (w/Derrick Bateman) defeated AJ (w/Hornswoggle) at 6:21. Regal said something about this being Grisham's last night so…Breaking News? AJ clotheslined Maxine and Maxine made the cover. I'm confused. Bateman shoved Horny to the floor and that distracted AJ. Maxine rolled her up by surprise for the win. Post-match, Titus O'Neil ran in to scare Bateman and Maxine away…[C]

The show closed with a video that recapped the Raw main event…

Shore's Slant: Lame ass Divas match that didn't have enough heat to sell it. And it's hard to believe that was the main event. NXT could not mean less at this point. Unreal. At least with the Raw replay I only really have to cover 40 minutes or so. Thanks for watching along tonight.
