FCW Watch (January 15th, 2012): Audrey Marie vs Caylee Turner, Plus Raquel Diaz Speaks

Greetings everybody, and welcome to your (now seemingly) weekly FCW Watch. We’ve been on a string of matches given to us by the developmental gods, and this week proves to be no different as Audrey Marie puts her Divas Championship at stake against challenger, Caylee Turner! In addition to that, Raquel Diaz also makes a declaration, as General Manager, Maxine, visits the local therapist, James Bronson. Now without any more blabbing, let us get started with this week’s edition of Florida Campeonato Lucha!~ (Note: my spanish may be a bit rusty)

We head to the ring for the start of the show, as Danielle Moinet introduces the following contest to be for the FCW Divas Title. Some particularly funky, spunky ring music hits, and out walks Caylee Turner, who masters the art of posing throughout her entrance. She proceeds to bounce around inside the ring, as she removes her coat and gets ready for her championship battle! Up next comes the lady of the evening herself, Audrey Marie, who displays her title proudly as she enters the ring. Following the removal of her coveted vest and chaps to reveal her red and white gear displaying her love of Texas, the bell sounds and we start this match off.

They circle around the ring, before locking up, as Caylee shoves Audrey back. They trade advantage a bit, before breaking the hold. Both divas proceed to run off separate sides of the ring, as Turner leaps down and Audrey hops over. Turner flips over onto her back to try to trip Audrey up, but the Divas Champion again manages to avoid a collision. Caylee kips up, as the two stare off with each other to a pop from the crowd. Turner with a kick to the stomach, as she sends Audrey into the corner. Marie leaps off the second rope with a springboard crossbody for a near fall, before Caylee capitalizes with a shoulder block. She flips herself over into a jacknife pin, but Audrey climbs out of it and transitions into a backslide, however Caylee manages to avoid her shoulders touching the canvas so the referee makes no count.

Audrey with some punches to the face, before Caylee shoves her off and holds the ropes down which causes the Divas Champ to fly onto the ring apron. They trade shots until Audrey goes for a springboard move that ends up costing her when Caylee shoves her off to the outside in mid air. Turner shoves Audrey back into the ring and levels her with a kick to the back for a two count. From there, she begins to wrench on the shoulders of the Champion, whilst the crowd starts to get behind her! Caylee with a kick, before tossing her backwards for a one count. Drop of the elbow follows, before nailing a nice leg drop! She hooks the leg for a two count, which seems to frustrate her as she lets out a screech that for some reason made me laugh and have to replay a few times.

She begins to taunt Audrey as Caylee applies a leg choke to the ring ropes, before slamming her face down to the canvas and applying a choke hold. Turner decides to go for the leg drop again, but Audrey slides out of the way and drops the challenger with a clothesline/back elbow combo. She sends Caylee off the ropes, as Turner goes for a handspring bulldog that we’ve seen in the past…only Audrey decides to say “no ma’am”, and simply splashes her down face first into the canvas. From there, Caylee goes for a clothesline, but Marie ducks and transitions it into the Round-Up! One…Two…Three! Audrey retains her Championship, despite a valiant effort from Caylee Turner.

We proceed over to the current reigning Queen of FCW, Raquel Diaz, who dubs the FCW Universe as her loyal subjects. She asks how they’re doing, before coming to the revelation that she doesn’t care because she’s the Queen! Diaz claims that this means everything revolves around her, but that does not include our “Yippee-Kay-Ay” Divas Champion, Audrey Marie. She gives Audrey a message that morals and being a good girl only get you so far in life…and apparently it’s only gotten her out of Texas. (I laughed) She beckons that the hall of FCW is beautiful, but that it’s missing a banner of the FCW Divas Champion. Raquel claims that she’s going to look so good for all eyes to see, before telling Audrey to say bye to her Championship since it will be hers very soon, much like all of the accolades and pride. With that, our Queen heads out of the arena, and we head to a break.

Backstage, Maxine can be spotted laying down on a couch saying how glad she is that she came today, as newfound therapist, James Bronson tells her to relax. He begins with her job and asks her to tell him what’s going on there. Maxine claims that she’s still the General Manager of FCW and she has to deal with a bunch of nimrods running around her. Not only that, but every week she has to go on NXT and deal with Derrick Bateman and Johnny Curtis! She demands that everyone expects so much out of her and she’s tired of carrying everyone elses weight and it causes her stress. She apologizes for going off on a tangent, as James claims he is out of time for this weeks session. Maxine gets up and heads out of the equation, which leaves James alone with Maxine’s forgotten purse. He scarily looks at it and grabs it, before turning around and doing god only knows. He tosses the purse back, as Maxine walks back in to grab it, which sparks him to turn around and be got applying her makeup?! If Maxine didn’t have enough stress now, I’m sure she just got some added from this.

Thoughts: Starting off with the match, I actually really enjoyed it! I thought Caylee looked the best in ring she ever has, and Audrey more than held her own as well. You can tell they are improving to a level higher, and being given a nice time to wrestle every week seems to be helping. They had some nice moves that I was surprised to see, and I thought the ending transition from Caylee’s failed bulldog into the Round-Up came off top notch. Hopefully these two meet again when they have improved to an even higher level because they really seemed to click in the ring for me.

Raquel’s promo was fun as well. She reminds me of an evil queen from a fairy tale, especially now that she has the crown to complete the look, and I kind of like it. She stands out from everyone else, and I replayed the part about Audrey and Texas probably more times than I should have. I’m excited to see her get some extra ring time soon because I think holding the Queen of FCW crown will definitely help her to improve since she will be used more in a wrestling capacity…however, she does well with promos so I’m not complaining getting to see her do them.

    Caylee impressed me alot…audrey needs to flow in a match…but over all it was a decent match…

    Raquel comes off like a total bitch & i love it…the bit about morals & being a good girl can only get you so far in life, like out of texas was a snap..she has vickies laugh lol…

  • divafandom

    The match was good. I liked it. Both ladies are getting better and better. Raquel was amazing on the mic and the Maxine segment was funny.

  • Joel

    I liked the very beginning of the match with the rope running, but then came that awful series of pin attempts that just looked terrible. After that the match was OK and both girls did great, I can see them both in heading over to WWE eventually but it seems like most FCW Divas do these days anyway.

    The Raquel segment was also a nice touch. If there’s one thing I liked more than the segment itself it is that FCW Divas actually get promo time. She did great though, she has her mothers laugh so let’s hope she gets the heat too.

    I liked the Maxine segment and I am happy she mentioned the NXT storyline, I didn’t think she would.

    Great by all girls.

  • javiousmckenzie

    Raquel needs a little more work when it comes to the mic the how yall doin was cringe worthy. She has her mother tone and signature laught j just hopefully she can come into her own on the mic. I also want to point out something about her makes me think of the evil queen from Once Upon A Time, oh and i just noticed her theme is Vickie theme in wwe 12

  • Matthew

    Caylee Turner has really improved, I love watching her!
    As for Audrey.. Still not keen on her and don’t exactly understand why she is holding the belt..

    I’d love to see Caylee called up sometime soon and they do an on-screen angle between her and Alicia.. :)

  • HeyChrissy

    Does Raquel sorta remind anyone else of Heel-Trish?

    • javiousmckenzie

      No she has a long way to go she is not even on Maxine level yet

    • Jhonmarco

      She reminds me of her, but she still has a very long way to go.

    • divafandom

      I think its because of her sarcasm. Trish was known for her hilarious bitchy sarcasm lol. Raquels getting there. Not as good as Trish or Maxine but still great.

      • HeyChrissy

        Oh I know she isn’t there yet,but I saw little hints of it.I hope she does get to those levels one day.

        • French.One

          Well for now she is overacting way too much :o

  • javiousmckenzie

    Who is this Audrey and where did she come from with this fake Hardcore Country gimmick

  • http://wrestlinggirl1993.tumblr.com/ xoxoRKOxoxo

    i hink wwe writers should take some pointers from FCW on how to use their divas!!!

  • Anthony

    I thought Caylee’s music was 100% better than what we hear from the diva’s on the main roster.

    Caylee is almost identical to her sister, WWE would be crazy to not incorporate them together on the main roster.

    I like Audrey a lot, she’s coming along nicely.

    Raquel is a hell of a heel. Like mother, like daughter.

    I love Maxine, I’m waiting for her to be “relinquished” of her duties, and like AJ, graduate from FCW.

    With Danielle’s looks she would make 1 hell of a heel. I can’t wait to see her graduate into a wrestler. Please don’t give her the Eden Stiles treatment and just have her announcing.

    I hope Audrey changes her finisher sometime soon

  • SteveSteve

    Raquels laugh is just like vickies. brilliant

  • LayTorres

    Caylee looks so much like Alicia….it’s not even normal.
    Maxine just made me laugh in her segment…..put her in the main roster already man!!!
    Raquel has that certain JE NE SAIS QUOI about her whinch makes her unique, and me like it!!!

  • French.One

    Well Caylee certainly don’t have un je ne sais quoi which makes her unique.
    Her selling is just awful, and she seems to have the same strength in her move than Kelly.

    I’m not digging much Raquel character, I’m not a big fan of drunked women :o

  • thejoshifanx

    That hurt my eyes. It was damn horrible.

  • Goodvibes

    Wow, Caylee turner is proof that the WWE is turning out diva’s in cookie cutter fashion, why you’d want ANOTHER Alicia Fox is beyond me, even if they are sisters.

    Raquel is a star in the making, and something tells me she’ll be HUGE on the roster, in addition to her uber talented parents, she’s got her own ‘Swag’ about her which I like, If you compare Trish’s first time on the Mic to Raquel I guarantee you Raquel leaves Trish in the dust, Trish herself said she looked like a deer in headlights.

    All hail Queen Racquel! How do these Guerrero’s just naturally talk on the mic very excellently like it’s nothing? Great match and even greater promo!

  • LayTorres

    Seriously….why does Caylee have to look soo much like Alicia? I know they are sisters, I have a sister and I look nothing like her. And they are not even twins! Do they want another Fox in the roster?

    • http://myspace.com/bigdogpimp20 Kantrell

      I have a brother and we’re not twins but we look just alike, and have similar hairstyles. It’s not their fault if they look alike, they can’t control that. Alica have RED hair, Caylee have a darker shade of red. Maybe she inspired by her sister looks, nothing wrong with that. And I’m pretty sure they will change her look just like did to AJ,Kaitlyn,Aksana,and Maxine. Like I said she can’t control how she looks. You act like she got plastic surgery to look like Alicia or something. You sound like you jealous that they look alike.

      • LayTorres

        Actually I am not jealous, maybe I just took it too far. I am very sorry. Didnt mean to offend anyone. It’s just making me think that they are trying to hard make another Alicia and not let Caylee have her own unique look. Once again, I am sorry if I offend anyone, I am not jealous at all. Thanks for putting light on my stupid rant. Once again, I am not jealous. I just took the issue to the north pole. This will not happen again.

        • LayTorres

          *shedding light*

        • divafandom

          Idt its jealousy I think its the fact its annoying how everything about caylee resembles her sister alicia. Especially in fcw where the divas have actual gimmicks and a diverse moveset. There’s no point of having two alicias especially when the original isn’t working. She’s saying caylee has to make herself unique.

        • http://myspace.com/bigdogpimp20 Kantrell

          Lol you didn’t offend me. I’m just getting tierd of ppl keep comparing their looks and wrestling credibly just because they look alike, I mean their sisters. I could see if they weren’t related. I just pick you cause you was saying it at that given time :) . Everybody is entitled to their opinion, I’m not trying change your outlook on them. But I’m just stating facts. Maybe they trying to make an other Alicia Fox, its WWE we’re talking about here lol. No hard feelings ;)

        • LayTorres

          Phew! Thanks : )

  • Mr. Asstastic

    That match was a damn shame.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/dsanchez96?feature=mhum sanchezdiego96

    That was a pretty good match. Both Audrey and Caylee are growing on me. I liked when Caylee was dodging Audrey. I’m just gonna pretend Caylee landed the kip up. Raquel was great on the mic. Her laugh is so similar to Vickies’! And Maxine’s segment was just hilarious. Not that the man was putting on make up (I’ve seen enough RuPaul) but Maxine’s reaction to it! She really needs a more permanent spot on the main roster. coughSMACKDOWNGMcough

    • LayTorres

      That’s what I am saying, instead of wasting her talent in a non televised web show, let Maxine have a permanent roster spot. The girl is talented.

  • _Bryan_

    Raquel’s promo reminds me of trish just a little

  • DivaKnockout66

    OMG CAYLEE TURNER DID SUCH A GREAT JOB!!!(:
    LOVE HER STYLE AND ATTRIE AND HAIR<3
    I ADORE HER FUR TOP(: & I LOVE HER THEME SONG !!!(;

  • Kim099

    I don’t know why I got a hoochie rich bitch vibe from Caylee I hope that’s her gimmick for some reason
