NXT Watch (August 23rd, 2012): Sofia Cortez Faces Tamina in Her Final NXT Bout; Raquel Makes a Statement

Hello there everyone, and welcome to another edition of the NXT Watch. Last week, Raquel Diaz graced us all with her presence in the form of a video segment backstage, but what will she have up her sleeve this time around? Plus, Divas return to the ring as Tamina Snuka faces off against the now departed, Sofia Cortez in what is sure to be a solid outing between the two. Let the stalling cease to exist, as we delve right into the action!


Skip to 8:27.

We head to the arena as we ready for some Divas action! Following the entrances of both Tamina and Sofia, the bell sounds and we kick things off. Cortez immediately begins to mock the Samoan lineage of Tamina, sparking the Island Goddess to shove her back and score with a nice flip arm drag. Sofia goes for a drop toe hold, but Snuka stops it from occurring! Cortez shoves her back for a two count, before going to town with a series of sharp kicks. Tamina hits a huge chop to the chest, but is soon taken down with a body scissors. The crowd gets behind Tamina , as she struggles to fight out. Finally, Tamina simply stands up with Sofia on her back and moves back into the corner. Snuka with a some takedowns and a running reverse faceplant!

Tamina drills Sofia in the jaw with the Super Kick, but Sofia kicks out! Tamina plants her with a bodyslam and signals that the end is near as she heads to the top rope. Can she?! Will she?! YES! Tamina lands the Superfly Splash for the victory! Tamina celebrates her win as Sofia rolls to the outside, but out of nowhere comes Raquel Diaz! She slams Tamina off of the top rope and proceeds to paint an “L” on her forehead with lipstick. Diaz poses over the downed Snuka and heads up the entrance ramp as the Exfoliating Ugliness Tour commences on!

Thoughts: Fun match between Sofia and Tamina while it lasted, but definitely a little shorter than usual. I don’t mind though because it didn’t feel short enough to where it seemed rushed or unfinished. I wish we had the chance to see a rematch, but unfortunately Sofia is no longer with the WWE (and is now rocking a brunette look to boot). I like that we’re seeing some story added on with Raquel, and it seems that she’s now begun to target Tamina as the next victim of her Exfoliating Ugliness Tour, which should prove to be interesting. I would definitely like to see a feud between two of the women occur, and whichever two they choose would be completely up to them. I think every Diva on NXT brings something to table, whether it be wrestling wise or charisma/personality so whoever is selected should make for a solid outing. Overall, another solid week for NXT in terms of the in ring action, and I look forward to next week since we essentially don’t know what’s going to air where anymore. Surprise factor makes for fun viewing!
