Women’s championship: Bayley v Charlotte
Tweet 1: It's NXTime.Tweet 2: Starting with a championship match, eh? Bold move, WWE. Bold move.
Tweet 3: Not thirty seconds in and Alex Riley and Tensai Tensaison are arguing. I can't stand A-Ry on commentary. Why does he have a job?
Tweet 4: In-ring introductions. #bigtime
Tweet 5: Charlotte's from The Queen City. Is that anywhere near Dudleyville?
Tweet 6: A-Ry just said there's a big X up in the air. There's an Ultimate X match here...?
Tweet 7: Who is Alex Riley to talk about veteran moves?
Tweet 8: They're having a good match, for the record.
Tweet 9: Inappropriately placed ad breaks are inappropriate.
Tweet 10: Trad figure four from Charlotte. I prefer her figure four headlock. Plus, in wrestle-logic terms, it's harder to counter.
Tweet 11: I did enjoy that handstand leverage from Charlotte though.
Tweet 12: Charlotte's neck breaker finisher is Natural Selection. Isn't that like the third name that thing's had?
Tweet 13: Post-match hug. I like the Charlotte character more every week. I don't think it's possible to like Bayley more.
The Ascension beat up Hideo Itami, thus cancelling the scheduled Viktor v Itami match
Tweet 14: When The Ascension had the tag titles we never saw them. Now they're on every week.Tweet 15: I love the way the referees are perfectly lined up. They should have done it by height or something.
|Ineffectual referees not actually getting between The Ascension and Itami there.|
Tweet 16: "This right here was total annihilation" - Jason Albert on The Ascension duffing up Hideo Itami (because that's their finisher name!)
Tweet 17: "Uncalled for is the word that comes to mind" - Jason Albert
Tweet 18: I really miss Regal doing commentary.
Enzo Amore locks up a time or two with Carmella as Big Cass watches on
Tweet 19: They're showing Enzo teaching someone how to wrestle? This is exposing The Business! UNACCEPTABLE!!Tweet 20: Oh noes! Carmella got the better of Enzo again! How humiliating, etc...
Troy McClane v Darin Corbin
Tweet 21: Pretty sure someone was holding a sign that said Brain Corbin.Tweet 22: Troy McClane is a jobber but Christ that's a great name.
Tweet 23: I'm yet to see the appeal of Corbin. Decent enough look but nothing amazing. Can't judge his wrestling until he has longer matches.
The Vaudevillains v Jason Jordan and Tye Dillinger
Tweet 24: #VaudevillainspopTweet 25: Their old music was way better. Was it changed because the audience liked it too much?
Tweet 26: Jordan and Dillinger should call themselves The New Team Angle.
Tweet 27: The Vaudevillains are clearly intended to be heels but they're just as clearly more likable than Benjamin and Haas 2.0.
Tweet 28: Gotch and English are playing to the crowd so maybe they're faces after all.
Tweet 29: This match is confusing.
Tweet 30: Dillinger slipped his knee pad down. My word what a heelish thing to do!
Tweet 31: Gotch is lucky he's not prone to botching because there'd be a very obvious nickname waiting for him.
Tweet 32: Please tell me English's senton is called That's a Wrap. Marvellous.
|NXT's most manly tag team.|
Titus O’Neil arrives and sits in the front row
Tweet 33: Titus O'Neil rocking up and sitting in the front row next to some dude wearing a bow tie there.
Hideo Itami is looked at by a doctor than chats to Sho Funaki
Tweet 34: Loving this Funaki cameo. He just happened to be passing through wearing a WWE branded anorak.
NXT championship: Tyson Kidd v Adrian Neville
Tweet 35: Titus gets to his feet and claps Tyson Kidd. Kidd blanks him.Tweet 36: Weird little orc dance from Neville there.
Tweet 37: Titus gave him a thumbs up. Love that.
Tweet 38: Nev looked a bit disappointed by the boos. Bad luck, guy. They're yours now.
Tweet 39: I wonder if Kidd regrets not having a lengthy indy stint. He'd probably have gotten a regular Dragon Gate gig.
Tweet 40: If he was available now Quildan would definitely be snapping him up for RPW.
Tweet 41: Sometimes I wonder if Quildan really is the RPW booker. He might just be a (metaphorical, obvs) puppet used to take the heat.
Tweet 42: Mid-match don't try this at home thing where we're told WWE stars aren't invincible. Ambrose survived having his head crushed by concrete.
Tweet 43: Nice reversal from Neville off that sunset flip.
Tweet 44: "What a kick out by Tyson Kidd! Kicked out on pure instinct!" - Alex Riley with the blandest wrestling commentary I've ever heard
Tweet 45: Kidd puts on the Sharpshooter. Neville gets the ropes. I hate how often big submission moves are survived in that fashion.
Tweet 46: The move should be presented as so painful that the guy has to tap unless he can reach the ropes within a couple of seconds.
|Too many people survive this these days. It does the move's image no good.|
Tweet 47: Titus interferes. Zayn makes the save. The crowd are into Zayn more than anyone else.
Tweet 48: One day Sami Zayn will turn heel and in doing so will break my heart. He's so darn likable.
Tweet 49: Don't worry everyone! Adrian Neville retained with his fancy top rope finisher.
Tweet 50: Referee having to remind Neville to do the staredown with Zayn there.
Tweet 51: "Tyson Kidd has no more NXT championship opportunities." Said as Kidd sat slumped in the corner of the ring with his head in his hands.
Tweet 52: Go on, NXT! Kick 'im while he's down!
