NXT Watch: Nice Guys Finish Last

Welcome back to another riveting edition of the NXT Watch, where this week we see two former rookies, AJ & Maxine, square off one on one in an attempt to top their match together from Season 3, as they headline tonight’s show. Can AJ seek revenge for the surprise attack from last week? Or will the strong minded Maxine show that she has come back with a legitimate purpose? Let’s find out!

After a recap of last week’s events, we head backstage where Derrick Bateman is seen giving his soulmate, Maxine, a massage before her match. He states that they are the hottest couple in the WWE, and that after he wins NXT Redemption, they will be more powerful than HHH and Stephanie McMahon, more provocative than Edge and Lita, and even bigger than Dusty Rhodes and Sapphire. Maxine quickly interrupts him and proclaims that before any of that can happen, she must first get rid of AJ, although she’s a bit worried about Hornswoggle due to how sneaky he can be. Derrick says not to worry, as he has a surprise for Hornswoggle, which sparks Maxine to enlighten him that she also has a surprise for him later tonight, and proceeds to make out with him a little on the side.

We return to the arena by the sound of the highly controversial theme song of AJ. Our plaid loving diva makes her way out to the ring, Hornswoggle not far behind. Out next comes Maxine, who debuts both a titantron and theme song in her second week of being back. The dynamic duo of she and Derrick Bateman step out from the back, as he bends down on his knees and she transmits a kiss from her lips to his using her finger in an interesting show of affection from the heel (as noted by the ‘heel’ on her shirt) couple. The bell sounds and we kick things off in this main event contest.

AJ quickly takes Maxine down with a spear, followed by a few shoves of the head into the top turnbuckle. A clothesline almost gets her a pinfall, but Maxine runs outside the ring and screams to Derrick that she’s not okay. AJ Shoves her down and then throws her back into the ring, but not before exchanging a quick glare to Bateman. Maxine kicks AJ in the head as she enters the ring, garnering a two count. From there, she applies a headlock, followed by a few elbows to the shoulder. Locking her hold back in, AJ starts to fight out, but Maxine takes the advantage with a kick to the stomach/knee to the face combo for a near fall.

Maxine begins to taunt Hornswoggle and grow frustrated with AJ’s lack of staying down. An ‘AJ’ chant erupts, as Maxine locks in a grueling submission hold. She then sends AJ into the corner and snaps off a suplex for a two count. Maxine’s frustration continues to grow with every close pinfall, as she tosses AJ into the ropes and begins choking her relentlessly with her knee, and then foot. She demands AJ give up, and continues to just beat her down mercifully with kicks and a hair toss for a two. AJ with a quick small package for a near fall of her own, followed by a double clothesline. Maxine goes for the pin, but AJ kicks out.

Maxine applies a chin lock, as another AJ chant begins. AJ tries to fight out, but Maxine is too far in control. AJ runs off the ropes, but Maxine drills her in the skull with a boot to the face. Maxine asks the crowd if this is what they want, and goes to pick AJ up, but is punched in the face until she falls back into the ropes. Duck of a clothesline, followed by a sick spin kick. Once Maxine reaches a vertical base, AJ follows up with a Clothesline, this time connecting. AJ picks Maxine up and goes to irish whip her into the corner, however Maxine reverses it, only AJ comes back with a reverse diving crossbody for a close count.

AJ takes control with a dropkick, but out of nowhere Derrick Bateman then shoves Hornswoggle to the floor. This takes AJ off her game, allowing Maxine to quickly roll her up for the three count! The lovers celebrate in the ring, until Titus O’Neil runs them off to the outside. The two couples then exchange glares, as Maxine can be seen screaming at a fan who tries to slap her hand on the way out.

Thoughts: Another awesome week of NXT action. I thought the match was really entertaining, and one of the better divas matches in some time. AJ seems to connect with a crowd, as she got at least 3 chants during the match, which is pretty unheard of these days. I was really impressed with Maxine, as this was, in my opinion, her best match to date. One thing I noticed was how she continuously played to the crowd so much during the match, which not many divas do, and thus it helps her to stand out in even more ways than she already does. Thoroughly enjoying the feud between the two divas and their soulmates, and I hope to see even more of it. NXT gives them a plethora of time to entertain, and they’ve capitalized on it two weeks in a row now.

      what ever he said i forgot he will never be more sexual active than lita and edge cuz the pg era lol!! did he said that? hahaha im pretty sure he did?!!!

      • wwedivaTamina

        Excuse me?

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

    I loved this match tbh ,Best match of the week so far ( diva wise ) . The time they got was great ,The action was really decent ,both girls got to shine .Maxine really impressed me ,like bobby said, this has to be her best match yet . I like that the crowd was cheering for AJ ,and I knew she would be over pretty soon because the crowd loves the type of babyface she is ( i.e mickie ).Anyways great action on NXT this week ,I hope maxine keeps improving she could be another diva with the whole package which we need :)

    P.S aj reminds soo much of mickie ,on the picture above :D

    • WWFoverWWE

      AJ is nothing like mickie, she just a copycat and mickie is way better

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

        Are you joking ? come on aj is like the mickie of our generation .The spunk ,the bubbly attitude .And I dont get how aj’s a copycat ?

        • WWFoverWWE

          our generation?? Mickie is not dead just so you know

          and no I ain’t kidding, Aj copycats too much

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

          Lmao well she came after mickie but I think you know what I mean xD

          And copies what !?

        • WWFoverWWE

          just the jumping and geeky posing. Wish she would act normal, I hate this nerd character she plays

        • Jhonmarco

          I’m pretty sure EveLover isn’t saying Mickie’s dead, just that Mickie was around from 2005-2010 and AJ will follow in her path from 2011-2015 (maybe longer). A copycat? Lol how because she’s a high flyer and looks very similiar to Mickie? I don’t get your grudge against AJ, she’s great.

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

          @WWFOVERWWE The Jumping and Geeky posing ? what other diva on the roster does that ? what divas from the past acted geeky ? Tbh AJ has to be probably the most unique diva on the roster TODAY . Im glad that shes just not a generic little face like kelly or even eve that just comes out waves and smiles and leaves smiling LOL .

          And Exactly what I was saying Jhonmarco.

        • WWFoverWWE

          AJ stole mickie’s bubbly character, with the jumping, posing, and AJ even dyed her hair to match mickie’s

          she’s a copycat and needs to be original, which she obviously can’t.

          and please, all AJ does is smile, pose, and smile more, she’s as unoriginal as unoriginal can be, she’s not anything new

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

          Mickie NEVER acted like a geek lol ,mickie was just bubbly and was jumpy . And mickie is in the PAST ,so it doesnt to have another bubbly mickie-type of character in the wwe because mickie doesnt own that character.

          AJ is not a copy cat because like I said shes the most unique in the roster ,you put ALL the divas together and AJ stands out the most ,even her body frame is different from all of them .

          What does hair have to do in this LOL ! Aksana Died her hair dark brown and has it the same style as layla used it and were not saying she copied layla .

          And yeah aj does go out there and smile and waves to the crowd but she also entertain INSIDE the ring which not alot of divas do today .

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

          “It doesnt hurt to have another ” *

        • Jhonmarco

          If you’re gonna look at it like that then every diva who will ever have that gimmick will need to get something new then? No such thing as new, in wrestling. AJ is impressive and what little time she’s had she is very impressive, like that crucifix headscissors she did on Natayla. She’s great at being sympathetic and now that I think about it Mickie was very bubbly like AJ but they make AJ out to be a geek liking comic books and such. And I like how you assume AJ will go to such lengths to “be like Mickie”? -,-

        • WWFoverWWE

          AJ stole the basis of what mickie’s character was all about, from the personality, to the hair style, to the everything. Geek or not, she’s tries to act like mickie, so to say she’s unique when she clearly isn’t is very stupid and naive

          the divas who stands out the most is alicia fox and tamina

        • Jhonmarco

          Mickie doesn’t seem offended why should you? And I love how she stole Mickie’s charecter, a lot of people have been bubbly faces. You’re stupid, for making this random-ass conspiracy that AJ is plotting to take out Mickie and claim the spot as bubbly face.

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

          Why do alicia and Tamina standout the most ? Imo AJ is the one that stands out more ,Just take a look at her .Tamina doesnt standout because we have natalya beth and kaitlyn LOL theyr all Muscular .Alicia doesnt standout either look at eves bodyframe is pretty alike so is maryse’s and Kelly’s .

          Back to the AJ topic. While AJ is VERY much like mickie ,I seriously think your being too hard on her .The hair mickie has dies her hair like 3 different colors since she got to TNA and mickies natural hair color is Dark Brown ( Ive seen her baby pictures LOL ) .Other than that AJ is just Bubbly ,which I see nothing wrong with .If she was trully copying mickie she would have a movesit similar to mickies and the only move that aj uses that are like mickies are the dropkick to the face and the spiningkick to the stomach ( I dont know the exact term for it ).

        • WWFoverWWE

          when did I say Aj was plotting to take out mickie?? are you seeing things?? and of course mickie won’t say anything, she has too much class, unlike a certain copycater

        • WWFoverWWE

          AJ did steal mickie’s moveset

          spinning back kick
          dropkick to face
          tornado DDT

          facts don’t lie, seems like you just can’t see the pudding that’s in your face

        • Jhonmarco

          Clearly AJ should have asked Mickie for permission to use her charecter? Maryse should have asked Trish for permission as well for charecter usage right? ;)

        • WWFoverWWE

          AJ should’ve been more original and more like her FCW self. She acts so desperate sometimes for attention, just follow her on twitter and you’ll see how she acts

        • Jhonmarco

          Lmao that is damn sad. Most faces do those moves, maybe not in wwe/tna but someone like jessica james does those moves all the time on the indies, please pick another lie will you!

        • WWFoverWWE

          denial much?? how sad, the facts are right there and like a fanboy, you refuse to see the truth. Sounds like a personal problem if you can’t put the pieces together

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

          Lmfaoo come on I obviously didnt count the tornado ddt because she only used it ONCE ! and that was one NXT ,and aj most deff didnt steal mickie’s moveset because she only used those two moves and the tornado DDT ( which mickie ALSO used like a couple of times ,agaisnt natalya and beth ) .I do have to agree she should use the moves she used in FCW .

      • Jhonmarco

        Acts deseprate? How? By playing a charecter WWE assigned her? Or acting like that charecter on twitter as well? I’m not buying what you’re selling.

        • WWFoverWWE

          WWE doesn’t assign characters to divas, you choose yourself

        • gl83

          If AJ stole Mickie’s character with the skipping, feistiness and hyperactive personality, than one can also say that Mickie stole Christy Hemme’s character. Because Christy was everything that Mickie was(from a character perspective) in her early WWE stint, she was feisty, hyperactive and skipped to the ring. So calling out AJ for this, while ignoring the fact that Mickie did this as well is pretty hypocritical of you.

          And no the Divas don’t pick their characters, it is the WWE who do so. I remember last year there were reports that WWE wanted to bring up Alberto Del Rio up without his mask, whereas Del Rio wanted to be brought up with his mask and wrestle as a masked luchador like he did in Mexico. So, if WWE weren’t going to let someone like Del Rio choose his own character, than there is no way that they would allow a Diva to do so.

      • MomoMufFinSsFTW

        Wth are you talking about?! Lol.. Aj is Not a Copycat..She Has The Same Gimick as a lot of divas have The Jumpy Face Type But That isn’t up too her its up to wwe but still Shes Way Different From Mickie Aj’s Hair..um So What? Everyone is going blonde now a days like seriously get real.. She Had It Before Mickie Did In Tna But Mickie isn’t coping ethier I Say Do What You Want Same Hair Color So What.. I Can Name A lot of Divas/Knockouts Who Have The Same Hair Color. As For Gimick/Wrestling Aj Is A Geek Gimick Mickie was Never a “Geek” Aj Is More HighFlying And Has A More Unique Moveset.. Shes Been Like This For Idk How Many Years..

      • MaryseAddict

        Did Mickie invent the spinning back kick
        dropkick to face
        tornado DDT?? NO! Was Mickie the first diva to have a bubbly character? NO! it was Christy Hemme, so who copied who?

    • A.E

      actually wwe after firing mickie read some reports that they did regret it,so they tried to make aj the next mickie by giving her similar gimmick.but most of us no with all do respect to aj but no matter what wwe do they can’t put a mickie v.2 because mickie is always mickie,and aj is always aj sorry if it ‘s abit too cheesy lol but is true.

      • WWFoverWWE

        @A.E so true, Aj need to be herself and not mickie, just saying

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

        @WWFOVERWWE Didnt you just see what A.E said “actually wwe after firing mickie read some reports that they did regret it,so they tried to make aj the next mickie by giving her similar gimmick” loll wwe probably assigned her the same gimmick so this might NOT be aj’s fault but WWE’s .

        • gl83

          Weren’t there reports during the beginning of NXT that stated that people in WWE Management saw in AJ, someone who could be their replacement for Mickie James as the feisty, underdog. So, it wouldn’t surprise me at all if that were the case.

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

          Yeahh there were and tbh I totally see it loll but like A.E said theres only one mickie and theres only gonna be one aj and I think theyr both GREAT at what they do and AJ will probably be a lengend and mickie is already one ( to me )

        • WWFoverWWE

          divas are not assigned gimmicks, they are just assigned heels and babyfaces. Everything AJ is doing is from her own control, and she even admitted that

          she is copying mickie james, and making it obvious. That’s my biggest problem with her, she’s not being original, but trying to mooch of how mickie became famous

        • WWFoverWWE

          males are assigned gimmicks, divas are not. The men are the focal part of the show, and their image matters to management. The divas are bathroom breaks, and as long as they are not breaking their babyface or heel character, they can act however they want

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

          While I still disagree with you ,Im just done with this conversation kay :)

        • WWFoverWWE

          agreed

        • chrislandee

          Just my two cents….I don’t believe AJ “copied” Mickie James so to speak….sure, they are similar in the way that they skip and stuff to the ring…but she IS original – look at her theme…it fits her perfectly because it sounds like something you’d hear from an anime…which is who she is, a geek. She even said herself that she wouldn’t have wanted some sexy type of theme that most divas have nowadays, because it wasn’t her. Look at her attire, she has the skulls and other designs that also fit her. As for her moveset, moves will ALWAYS be used over and over again…I’m sure that AJ has a ton of variations of moves that she hasn’t shown yet.

        • Harley

          WWFOVERWWE: So basically, what you are saying is…

          1. Lita actually wanted to act like a slut even though she was getting a lot of personal heat for it

          2. Melina wanted to be an overt heel instead of the two faced smiling heel that she could’ve been since she was allegedly more comfortable that way

          3. Trish–during her heel days–also wanted to be a seductress even though she has expressed disdain for it (refusing to pose for Playboy and not wanting “sex” to overshadow her skill.

          4. That divas actually have “THAT” much control over the creative ergo it means that from what we’ve seen, they do not want their division to improve.

          5. That if you were AJ and the WWE told you that they want you to be the next Mickie, you would do the exact opposite.

          Great.

          Also….

          “The men are the focal part of the show, and their image matters to management. The divas are bathroom breaks, and as long as they are not breaking their babyface or heel character, they can act however they want”

          So, why again was Serena fired?

        • WWFoverWWE

          i’m talking about the divas today. Back then things were different and the divas got storylines and interesting characters

          Acting out wrong in real life is gonna get you in trouble, I was talking about TV. For example, beth phoenix is heel, that doesn’t mean she can come out waving at the crowd kissing the babies, however she has the power to do all the dominant poses she wants, and be as intimidating as she wants

          also maryse, she was told she’s a heel, however it was her idea to do the hand in your face gestures

        • xx_swayme

          LOL what?…

          Divas have have hardly any creative control over their characters, McCool even stated that in an interview prior to her leaving, and she more than likely had more than any Diva since Trish. Hence why they are so generic and do run all seem the same.

          I think you need to take a look at past face Divas that have ran down the ramp or acted very bubbly.. Stacy Keibler was very much a bubbly face.. Ashley Massaro skipped and jumped around.. Molly was a very bubbly face before her terrible heel turn. Torrie Wilson pranced around.. So by what you are saying, Mickie copied all these girls.. or you are just being a mark and forgetting that ALL of that is generic face routine..

          As far as the move set goes, Mickie had a very generic acrobatic move set. All the moves she had done were done before her.

          The different kicks were done between Trish, Stacy, and Jacquline.
          Spinning DDT – Jacquline, Molly, and even Terri.
          Cartwheel – Stacy
          Hurricanrana – Lita had many variations she did throughout her career, Mickie’s version was done by Lita.
          Dropkick to the face – just about every diva at one point as it’s a quick reversal move. Candice did it a lot.

          I don’t think anyone here is arguing that both Mickie and AJ are not talented at what they do, but if you just base her ring entrance and generic babyface gimmick as to what you back your argument up with, yeah not all that convincing.. try again.

  • Lily

    This is what i would call a perfect combination. You have AJ the bubbly face who can get the crowd behind her anytime and then you have Maxine the dominant leader type heel who can get heat.

    It’s been about a year since these girls last wrestled each other and it’s a BIG improvement. Their last match was sloppy and slow but this felt more balanced and entertaining.

  • Melina&Mickie4ever!

    Loved The Match ! I really expected Maxine to grab Aj in a suplex and slip on a imaginary Banana. Botching I mean , but Maxine really did great here caught me by surprise. The big boot was sick ripping a page out of Ms.McCool’s book Nice! Liked The Spin Kick To By Aj but then again its Aj what cant you expect from her. 4/5 for the match and 1/5 for Maxine’s horrible theme. You would have though they would have given her a Bi*chy bad ass theme. You know sometimes I really think they just go into the computer go on youtube and type in ” Wrestling Entrance Songs” and pick from there.

    • Spike7000

      Usually Diva themes are made by Jim Johnston but in most cases WWE uses music from Production Music Libraries for Diva themes now a days

    • http://www.youtube.com/RingVixens Teri

      Just recently, CM Punk got Vince McMahon to do something he has had a policy against doing in most cases, which is to pay royalty rights to use popular songs instead of WWE-created music (think Jim Johnston). A popular example would be Punk recently changing his theme to Living Colour’s “Cult of Personality”.

      • Spike7000

        Yeah Punk was previously using ”This Fire Burns” by Killswitch Engage but due to current storyline Vince brought Punk the song ”Cult of Personality” by Living Colour to really fit him right now

        • WWFoverWWE

          WWE superstars and divas are allowed to choose there themes, as long as the music fits their character on TV

      • Harley

        @Teri: I have to say though, I’m not a fan of the new Punk theme. Something about “This Fire Burns” just makes his presence imposing as supposed to the new one.

      • Jake

        @WWFOVERWWE

        Only top guys can choose their themes. Orton has stated in many interviews that he hated “Burn in my Light” and Torrie wasn’t a fan of “Not Enough for Me.”

        Then you have some cases like Punk, MVP, Maria, and Kelly’s themes were not even made for them. They were just given to them.

        • WWFoverWWE

          @JAKE they were not made of them, but they chose to take them anyway because they liked them. You actually think wwe management sits down and chooses a theme for every single person on the roster?? um no, it doesn’t work that way

          theres a large variety to pick from, and you decide which one. It just has to match your TV character

        • Jake

          Where did you get this information from? I’ve heard several people like Maria and Kelly said they didn’t like their themes. They use whatever is given to them. You think Wade Barrett requested all those versions of his theme? lol I thought this was common knowledge with wrestling fans =/

  • Spike7000

    Match was good

    I liked the fact that they gave the girls almost close to 10 minutes

    Surprised and liked the fact that the crowd got behind the match.

    Though she’s more Manager type, Maxine has improved and in my opinion she’s now in the same category with Alicia Fox and Layla regarding wrestling skills where they are there but not there yet

    Maxine’s new theme ”Come N Get It” really suits her which I listened to it and it sounds very Katy Perry ish in my opinion also the theme is based off Power and Attitude. I’m surprised they did not gave her the theme she currently had down at FCW

    I would say this match has been the only very positive one the Divas have had this week out of Monday’s match and especially Friday’s match

  • LadyGoDiva

    I really,really LOVED what I saw here,kinda wanted AJ to pick up the win and do alittle more in the match. But I’m sastisfied with what I saw anyway a little more better then the one they had on NXT3 because looking at it now Maxine has improved a little bit more. I have a prediction of a mixed tag team match next week?

    I would say this feels a little better then the match on SD this Friday even though I haven’t seen it yet.

  • A.E

    impressed by both ladies,that how raw and smackdown should be pushing their talent because of the skill and look not just the looks,aj and maxine delivered a good match.

    and a question here is that me or maxine took a screaming lessons from kelly.

  • http://www.youtube.com/RingVixens Teri

    Loved the big boot, and Maxine sold AJ’s spinning heel kick really well.

  • iLUVwrestlingValets

    Very good match, i admit i had to skip to 2:40 so i wouldn’t hear AJ’s theme, but a very good lengthy match. I also gotta admit that at first when i saw maxine’s debut was on NXT, i thought it was just BS, but hey gotta take what you can get right? Maxine has really improved and i see a bright future ahead of her and AJ

  • French.One

    Decent match with only basic stuff, Maxine and AJ can do better than that (none of them have used their finisher).
    I’m glad AJ got some chant, it’s very promissing for her future if her skills will follow up.

  • RedHotVixen

    Don’t get me wrong, I love diva action especially when it’s of this quality. Great work by both ladies. But is anyone else wondering HOW LONG HAS NXT BEING GOING ON FOR?!?! I mean this has to be the longest season (of anything) ever.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

      I have ! O.o LMFAOO It feels like FOREVER .

      • Marshy

        Aren’t they suppose to have vote offs? Who is going to win when they are dragging this way too long?

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

          Tbh I really dont know lmfaoo I havent watched NXT since the divas season ,I usually just watch some of the maryse segments or diva segments on YT .

  • Felipe

    The match was ok, but I dont like how weak AJ has been booked in all her matches since joining the main roster. Most of her matches consist of her getting her ass handed to her for the majority of the match and she might get a few punches and dropkicks in. Her matches on fcw and nxt 3 were a whole lot better. I hope she gets to have a long back and forth match where she can show off her highflying/ lucha libre type moves and a finisher. It’s sad but most of my friends think she is just a model like the others despite me telling them she was from the indy circuit and trained my Jay Lethal. Maxine is good at playing the evil bitchy character, I think she has the potential to be a top heel in the divas division.

    • Felipe

      “By Jay Lethal”

    • gl83

      @FELIPE But that is how WWE books all of their Faces. It doesn’t matter if you are a Diva, Mid-carder, Low-Carder, Main-Eventer. Heck you could be John Cena and they still follow the same formula. You start the match strong and in control, then you get beat up a majority of the match and then in the end you make your comeback. AJ was able to dominate most of her matches in FCW, particularly in the last year or so because she was wrestling the Heel role.

      • Felipe

        @GL83 I understand where your coming from but she still has way better moves then the basic ones seen as of late.

    nice match for sure, however, i am just not a fan of Maxine, sure she can cut a good promo, but other than that her wrestling is just boring, all she does is kick and punch haha and that is it, and i just dont like that

  • art

    Maxine won me over in this match…she played to the crowd which most divas dont do during their matches & she got aj chants because of it…
    i wouldnt mind maxine winning the divas title she’d get face divas over & shes gotten way better in ring as well..
    also maxines screams were no were near annoying like kellys because it wasnt the same old stuff “come on” maxine got the crowd involved because of it & it wasnt repetitive either..

    plus it was good wrestling i enjoyed the match…why doesnt maxine have a theme like candices first one,i feel that maxine needs a sexy slow type theme & hers was so off the mark…

    • Jhonmarco

      Just couldn’t help but mention kelly could you? -_-

      • Spike7000

        People now think Maxine’s new theme is some kind of babyface theme related to Love but her new theme actually fits her because it’s based off of Power and Attitude

      • art

        @JHONMARCO..because kellys screams are the most annoying of any diva….maxines werent anywhere near that & maxines screams got the crowd involved which kellys dont…

        • Jhonmarco

          That’s a matter of opinion, when she does them at the right moment I like them but when she does them the entire match yeah not so much.

    • http://www.youtube.com/RingVixens Teri

      Agreed – i’d file Maxine’s screams into the “Melina’s hellcat screams’ folder.

  • shameronstar

    Maxine could be like Dawn Marie except she actually wins matches.

  • AdrianRay

    Maxine’s hair is not suiting her…neither is her theme.

  • WWFoverWWE

    I appreciate the length but the match wasn’t that good, it was pretty slow. AJ hasn’t impressed me once since joining smackdown, guess she only clicks with girls taller than her

    • http://twitter.com/#!/madslam200959 madslam2009

      Like everyone?

      • WWFoverWWE

        I mean way taller. Maxine is pretty close to AJ’s height

        • http://twitter.com/#!/madslam200959 madslam2009

          The only real divas in my opinion that are striving in the ring rite now are Alicia, Beth, and Nattie. AJ had a rough start but I admit shes getting there. Not like she hits alot of moves in her underdog esque matches.

  • http://twitter.com/#!/madslam200959 madslam2009

    Was not a fan of this match. I know AJ has the plucky geek godess underdog type gimmick but she doesn’t need to be dominated EVERY match. I thought AJ looked SO weak in this match. I did not buy Maxine’s dominace, especially since they seem to be giving AJ a push. Not arguing the result, but Maxine should have delievered less offense and AJ more. And I did not like Maxine’s hair or theme or wrestling. Amazing on the mic but I think shes been away from the ring a little to long. So-so match.

    • BadAxMax

      Are you kidding? You weren’t watching! I say they were giving Maxine the Push! I think their BOTH good and improving and will be on the main rooster soon. I mean …look what they have up on the main rooster they don’t even use, or don’t deliver a match like these two! (P.S. I think Aksana totally copied Maxine’s hair (look at Maxine’s FCW clips) So Maxine maybe steered away from that look. Didn’t make sense for Aksana to take her look and outfits? I mean spitt’in image!!

      • gl83

        Umm, what are you talking about? AJ is already on the main roster.

        I don’t think Maxine will be on the main roster any time soon. If Bateman wins NXT, then she and him will be stuck on NXT for another season, and if Bateman loses, she and Bateman will be shipped back down to FCW. And let’s be honest, WWE already has too many Heels in the diva division as it is right now. Adding Maxine will only result in her getting lost in the shuffle.

        • http://twitter.com/#!/madslam200959 madslam2009

          Unless Maxine gets an adminastrative role, she will get lost, and thats why this season of NXT is so confusing. I dont even know if Maxine is a rookie or a diva or whatever the hell she is. And I say they are giving AJ a push because shes been getting wins over Nattie (including at Summerslam Axxess) and has been constantly getting matches and WWE seems pretty high on her. Shes maintained a definite spot. And I think Maxine and Aksana looked diffrent even with both having dark hair.

  • mikeparis18

    Maxin’s best match. I thought she did great infusing her character into all of her attacks and n=bringing the crowd into it. AJ moves like lighting in that ring, I hope to see these 2 used on the main shows more often (or in Maxin’s case, just being featured)

  • Raekon

    Things I liked:

    – how Maxine has turned to a brawler in which she is good in and left out most of the technical moves she had trouble with to improve

    – Maxine as a heel is always gold and she sold herself very well
    – AJ putting Maxine power over to give her a push as a strong and dominant heel

    – Solid match that was played very well by both girls
    – Bateman and Maxine are totally fitting in attitude and as a pair and both are good in cutting promos which adds to it even more

    – Maxines interaction with the audience was great

    A Thing I disliked a bit:

    – they could had let AJ do more and show Maxine as resilient and endurant through the match aswell instead of limiting AJ in her moves making her look like a brawler aswell

    I hope we will get another match in NXT soon and more airtime for the girls, they do both great and I’m happy that the divas division in overall gets more attention through all the shows in the meantime. :)

  • ilovelita

    Hate that there was no reaction in that match.

    Don’t worry guys just got the big scoop that in 22 weeks we’ll find out who the final two will be.

    • ilovelita

      What is up with these themes WWE? So far the girls themes that have come from NXT aren’t very good, but grown to like Kaitlyn’s.

    • art

      no reaction yes their was..their was some oooh’s to bumps not very loud & aj got her name chanted thats a reaction..

  • jim462

    I loved the backstage segment & match between my gal Maxine & Aj it was AWESOME.Maxine is my favorite NXT rookie ftom season 3 and I hope WWE signs her to a contract and uses her great talents both in ring & on the mic. if you give the divas enough time they can have an great match and Maxine & Aj proved that point. Maxine going over as heel with the win plus that Hornswoggle geting knocked down I could not have been happier thanks diva dirt it helped me calm down and relax after that earthquake hit in virginia MAXINE RULZ

    • G32106

      I live in Virginia where it hit!!!-Scary:(

    • Jhonmarco

      Hope everything is alright in Virginia :) and btw I live in jersey and we just felt a little shake and it scared me a ton -,- can’t imagine how it was over there.

  • DivaKnockout66

    WTF Maxine Theme & Attrie O_o

  • melina prez

    The match seemed slow… I thought itd be amazing but it kinda dragged for me. But it was maxines best match to date !

  • http://z15.invisionfree.com/ECW_2k11 TheRJBlanco

    Maxine’s theme isnt that bad. At first I was like WTF?!?! But now, Its catchy but I still stand by this in saying that theme totally fits Kaitlyn. Just saying….
