WWE NXT for March 9, 2010
From Seattle, Washington
The latest WWE hype is that NXT is cable TV’s “hottest new show.” NXT may not be but at least it’s hotter than Monday Night Impact.
Miz & Daniel Bryan v. R-Truth & David Otunga
R-Truth did his entrance routine before the match. By the way, they are now plugging Twitter sites for each of the rookies such as Twitter.com/DanielBryanNXT. Miz cut a promo saying that Daniel Bryan was 0-2 on NXT and that tonight’s match was important because R-Truth laid him out last night. Miz then said that Bryan would be thrown off of NXT if he was pinned tonight. Truth got the better of Bryan with a couple of clotheslines to start. He and Otunga then used a double shoulder block for a one count. Truth tagged in, promptly clotheslining Bryan to the floor and firing Miz out after him. Truth then hit a spinning plancha onto both men as the match headed to break. After the break, Bryan was working over the back of R-Truth. He hit a knee lift and tagged out to Miz. They kept the advantage on Mix for a bit, before Truth got the hot tag to Otunga. The rookie hit a couple of clotheslines before he and Miz couldn’t get together on a flapjack spot. At that same moment, a sign flashed in the crowd: “NXT=Botch-A-Mania”. Anyway, Otunga hit a powerslam on Miz which forced Bryan to make a save. Bryan then tagged himself in and hit a missile dropkick off of the top rope. Bryan then began to work a heel hook; as they teased a submission, Miz tagged himself in. The two partners shoved one another which allowed R-Truth to hit a spinning heel kick. Otunga hit a sit-out spinebuster to take the fall.
By the way, the goofy anti-Internet, anti-Bryan Michael Cole character seems to be gone (thankfully). Likewise, the R-Truth and Otunga feud which was teased last week seems to be over.
