Season 3 Immunity Scoreboard after Week 5:
-- A.J.: 3 points
-- Kaitlyn: 3 points
-- Naomi: 2 points
-- Jamie: 1 point
-- Aksana: 1 point
In-ring: The show began with Matt Striker assembling the NXT Rookies in the ring minus Jamie, who was cut last week. They all had air horns, which should make for great TV. Striker announced the immunity scoreboard has been reset and the next elimination will be in three weeks.
The competition was "guess the wrestler theme song." After the first round, A.J. dominated with seven out of eight themes guessed. In round two, A.J. clean swept things, ending with 1,900 points. Naomi ended with 100 points from round one. And A.J. obtains immunity.
1 -- NAOMI (w/Kelly Kelly) vs. ALICIA FOX (w/Maxine)
Alicia heeled on Naomi by pretending to beg off needing a break before landing a kick to the gut. Alicia worked over Naomi, who came back with a neckbreaker for a two count. Naomi then went up top and missed with a high cross-body block. Alicia then nearly botched an axe kick for a two count. She followed with a second axe kick and that was it.
WINNER: Alicia Fox in 4:00. Good focus on Naomi getting her some in-ring time. At times, it was hard to tell who was the Pro and Rookie in the ring.
Backstage: Goldust tried to give Aksana a pep talk. Aksana said she spoke with an attorney, who said immigration might send her home, just for six months, which could kill her hopes and dreams. Goldust, apparently now a licensed representative of Aksana in her legal affairs, said they'll fix all of this. He said Aksana needs to focus on competition tonight.
In-ring: Striker was back in the ring with the Rookies for another competition. They'll test their punching power later, but now, a chance to show personality and charisma. Naomi was up first needing to get something off her chest. She said someone on this show has been getting on her last nerve. Naomi is so sick of Michael Cole's negativity. "You're not Jim Ross," she said. Naomi said they're tired of watching Cole every week. And she's tired of that gray hair. She asked the crowd what they think and they cheered. "Cheap pop for Cole," he said on commentary trying to defend himself.
A.J. said she's putting out a personal ad. She's single. She wants to turn the lights down and burn some candles. Then, they turn things on. Like her Xbox. The crowd booed. She said she has a PS3. If you're interested, she'll put her gamer tag on Twitter. Cole wanted to know where his gong is. Striker said he's more of a Craigslist guy. Not touching that one. Kaitlyn was next to cut a promo on Vickie Guerrero. She said Vickie's favorite perfume is Bengay. She called Vickie a minty, cheesy, fine wine. Vickie just shot her a look while the crowd sat quietly.
Aksana was next to talk about America. She said she hopes someone from immigration is watching. She said without America, there would not be Double Double E Universe. And without Double Double E, there would be a void of beautiful people. She thanked Christopher Columbus for stumbling upon some land.
Maxine was last. She was disrespected by Hornswoggle last week. But, she always ends up on top. On another subject, Kaitlyn. She said Kaitlyn was lucky to have Vickie as her Pro, but instead, she respected Vickie and Dolph's relationship. Kaitlyn was accused of being a homewrecker. Buzzer. Striker recapped the "charisma and personality" portion of the show. Cole said that was one of the worst things he's sat through in his entire life. Still to come: Power Punch Challenge. Sounds like a drink at Jamba Juice.
Raw Rebound: John Cena vs. The Miz to captain Team Raw at Bragging Rights. Then, Barrett chewed out Cena, complete with added sound and visual effects from the WWE video department.
Announcers: Cole calmed down and hyped the Bragging Rights PPV line-up with Mathews. Mathews then plugged NXT available on-demand at midnight EST after each episode.
Video recap: Kaitlyn went over Vickie Guerrero after Dolph Ziggler acted neutral during the match. And Dolph was caught celebrating with Kaitlyn.
Backstage: Kaitlyn was warming up for the punching contest, then Vickie walked into the scene. Vickie said she wishes Kaitlyn was eliminated last week, but now that she's still on the show, they can be miserable together or let bygones be bygones. Kaitlyn was cool with that. Vickie said it's under condition that Kaitlyn lays off her man.
Announcers: Mathews tried to get serious again plugging the "limited engagement showing" of Knucklehead starring Big Show. They fed to the long-form trailer introducing the movie's premise.
On-stage: Striker was with the Rookies for the Power Punch Challenge. Naomi was up first and registered an 811. However, she hit the bag with two hands. Therefore, she must do it...one more time. On the second try, 801. A.J. was next and scored an Xbox 362. Cole breathed heavily as this dragged out. Mathews asked Cole what he was doing. Cole said he's playing the Kenny Powers game on his phone. Kaitlyn completely missed and scored 5. Striker decided to stretch this out by asking for her strategy. Kaitlyn said she tried to numb her arm ahead of time so she wouldn't feel any pain, but she whiffed.
Aksana was next. Solid punch, but only worth 666. Everyone oohed and aahed. In the Moment of the Night, Aksana turned to the other Rookies and mouthed, "What?" as if she didn't get it. Maxine was next. Nice try, but not enough. Naomi wins and matches A.J. with one point a piece in the reset standings.
In-ring: Team Goldust made their way to the ring for Aksana to be in action. Look at that, Goldust with a title around his waist via the Million Dollar Title. It's worth noting the last time Goldust held a title in WWE was in 2002. Respective cups of coffee with the Hardcore Title and the World Tag Titles with Booker T.
2 -- A.J. (w/Primo) vs. GOLDUST (w/Aksana)
Goldust tried to encourage the shy Aksana from the ring apron as A.J. dominated early on. Aksana tried to follow with a scoop slam, but A.J. scored a pin with a roll up for the win. More problems for Aksana.
WINNER: A.J. in 2:00. Post-match took precedence...
After the match, Goldust took the mic and said the immigration issue must be driving her crazy. He said there are options. Yep, you knew this was coming three weeks ago. "We could get married," Goldust said. "What did you say?" Aksana asked. Goldust said he would do anything to help her. He dropped down to one knee and asked Aksana to marry him. Aksana contemplated her future and smiled before saying, "Yes." Cole screamed in celebration and said they finally have a reason to watch NXT. Cole said it's "bigger than Jim and Pam." Eh, no. Cole thanked them for saving the show tonight. And the video feed cut off, apparently signaling the end of the show, which checked in at 51 minutes this week.
Updated Immunity Standings after this week's reset:
-- A.J.: 1 point
-- Naomi: 1 point
-- Maxine: 0 points
-- Aksana: 0 points
-- Kaitlyn: 0 points
