Well back again and things this week seemed much more optimistic in the WWE since a long time ago, we got a divas match for a change on Raw, the return of Kelly Kelly, Brooke Tessmacher was in action on Impact while we had a Tag match on NXT, Eve Torres on Smackdown and much from NXT and OVW more.
The AJ Lee Show
This week on Raw, Kelly Kelly returned to take on Eve Torres in what was a quick, short, decent enough match. It was no great return, the fans cared a little and we saw Eve Torres playing heel a littlemore in the ring. I’ve got to give props to Eve Torres, she hasn’t had much opportunity to wrestle as a heel but she did fairly okay. Some credit needs to be given to Kelly Kelly too, the crowd was cheering her on, which is the most reaction any diva got like in a long time (Well if your name isn’t AJ Lee or Vickie Guererro) and she didn’t get worse in the ring. Sadly, she didn’t get better either. If Kelly Kelly is what we needed to have a Raw Divas match, guess we got to be happy for her return right? Nothing special, nothing note worthy and nothing came of it. In other words, nothing changed. Though i didn’t know why they didn’t make this a tag match and make the champ a tad bit more relevant.
AJ Lee also had her moments this weeks and certainly shake things up in her white suits. I’m digging it, she did a great job and her microphone skills are getting better as the weeks progress. It has always been her weak spot but the more they give her to do, the better she is getting and she deserves all the praises she has been getting. Now if she could only insert herself into booking some Divas matches too? Hey Ms. General Manager, AJ Lee, I think there is another champion, that might need your attention.
TNA Knockouts champion Brooke….I mean Ms. Tessmacher was in action this week, taking on Gail Kim yet again. Another good decent match, it wasn’t bad and the two clearly build up some nice chemistry though all the time they’ve been working together. Madison Rayne came out, worked her lady magic on Earl again, making me question what might happen this Sunday. It could go either way, but in the end, I’m hoping for some solid action from both ladies. Brooke..I mean Ms. Tessmacher has proven she could pull out some good (not great) matches and Madison Rayne usually never disappoint in the ring. She always adds just enough entertainment and wrestling to all her matches. I was a bit disappointed there was no follow up to the knockouts Tag Team Title situation, why not? At least when they did that it seemed they cared just a little about the title, guess it was just to do some free advertising for Eric Young’s new show. ODB recently signed a new deal so we know she’s there for the long run but what exactly? I don’t know. Something needs to be done though.
We also got more Claire drama, this woman has got to go, she’s a bad actress and growing a bit annoying, just a bit though. I really feel they could have picked someone better to fit this role and someone who I could see them using after this whole storyline is done, sadly for Claire, once this is over I hope it is truly goodbye.
Looks like next week I might have to change this to Smackdown Minutes, but Eve Torres tried to get herself a job this week on Smackdown (Which didn’t make much sense because she’s from Raw) either way, the new Smackdown General Manager Booker T told her no positions are currently open, then in came in Teddy with the scarcely seen Kaitlyn and she suggested she could be his assistant, Booker said yes but this made Eve Torres angry and she brought up the board and basically made a little threat. But Booker was kind enough to book match for smackdown next week which will be Kaitlyn vs. Eve Torres, something fresh I must admit so actually looking forward to this. Plus it’s the first Divas match since June, so it was certainly a change.
We got a rather odd tag match on NXT, it was Paige (Britani Knight) & Tamina Snuka taking on Kaitlyn and Caylee Turner (Alicia Fox’s little sister), first it was odd, all these weeks Paige seems to be playing heel and this week she’s a fan favorite, while Kaitlyn played heel this week which was also weird. Though Kaitlyn did great and pulled it off, showing once more, she’s got really talent for this, while despite having some Candice Michelle moments with the crowd, Paige did manage to get the crowd cheering her on when she tried to get a response. Tamina Snuka did her usual stuff while Caylee Turner didn’t look as impressive as I thought she was, she could use some work, she’s not hopeless though but she could use a lot of work right now; though she played a good heel. Paige really tried getting the crowd in the match though, at first it seemed like she didn’t care and was going be all like Candice Michelle and get no response. But the crowd warmed up to her crazy and actually cheered her on after. Oh, yeah i wasn’t comparing Candice and Paige ring wise, because she could clearly wrestle circles around Candice. Remember when they pushed Candice was pushed to the moon and nobody in the crowd cared? Well yeah it was looking like that, but the crowd liked the Raven Haired Vixen and responded well to her.
On OVW TV
Well after sitting through two episodes of OVW, from last week and this week, seemingly there is trouble in paradise in Taeler Hendrix and her cutie Dylan Bostic paradise. It is really coming off as this Maxine-Derrick Bateman style with a twist. Anyways in both weeks we saw the duo arguing and with Taeler Hendrix setting her eyes now on the OVW TV Champion Ryan Howe, guess she likes men who has some gold around their waist. Also she successfully defended her championship against Jesse Belle at the Saturday Night Special show, though the match won’t be available for a month or so. SO I’ll be looking out for that. Seemingly Dylan almost cost her the match, which could have something to do with the argument this week. We also saw Josette Bynum (formerly known as SoJo Bolt) doing some dirty clean up jobs during the show. Which was no fun for her of course; she is currently secretary to OVW General Manager Frank Miller.
What to look forward to look out for next week?
Well, we have Kaitlyn vs. Eve Torres on smackdown to look forward too, hopefully more on the Knockouts Tag Team Championship. Also who is going to come out as champ this Sunday? Brooke Tessmacher or Madison Rayne? And lastly the most important question of them all. Will the Divas Champ Layla El show up on Raw or Smackdown? Good question she seems to be lost these last couple of weeks.
