WWE.com Looks at Maxine’s Return to NXT

WWE.com has a feature article about Maxine‘s recent return to NXT.

The former Season 3 rookie has aligned herself with Derek Bateman in a feud with AJ and Hornswoggle.

The article says:

Maxine is back, and apparently she’s a woman on an important mission. But what exactly does this vengeful, fiery former NXT Rookie Diva from Season 3 have in mind for WWE NXT Redemption?

During week 24 of competition, Maxine made a shocking return to Tuesday nights, viciously attacking a vulnerable A.J. from behind moments after A.J.’s beau, Hornswoggle, and Titus O’Neil were taunted out of the ring by Derrick Bateman. Following the attack, Bateman revealed that Maxine was his new girlfriend and “soulmate.”

On her feud with AJ:

When she’s not trying to help Bateman become WWE’s next breakout star, what more can Maxine possibly do to torment A.J.? Make fun of her green Skittles and candy ring exchange with Hornswoggle? Or maybe she’ll pick on the diminutive size of A.J’s boyfriend? The spunky Diva isn’t one to back down from a challenge, and it’s only a matter of time before she takes the fight back to her wicked adversary. For the moment, though, the advantage is all Maxine’s.

NXT continues tonight on WWE.com.

    Am I the only one that sees Maxine and Melina v2.0? Remember back in the day when Melina was the mouth for MNM and talked a whole bunch of smack?

    PS – She needs to go back being a brunette. Ugh, at whatever color her hair is now.

    • seasons-of-love

      I see her more as Dawn Marie the Second, actually. I’ve thought so since NXT3, but the new hair colour adds to it.

      • shameronstar

        Me too she reminds me so much of Dawn Marie. That woman was one seductive vixen. I think Dawn was sexy than Torrie to me honest. Let’s just hope, unlike Dawn Marie, Maxine’s career amounts more than being a jobbing punching bag to the most popular blondie around.

      I think Maxine looks 100x better with her current hair style now. Her look on Season 3 of NXT was terrible. I think she has improved a lot since then.

        I’m honestly not a fan of her hair, it shouldn’t be light or straight down.

  • art

    im glad shes so good on the mic & now can have an exciting match/es..

    • Katie

      …Maxine won’t have exciting matches, she’s awful.

      • JamieKym

        She’s better than most of the divas right now.

    • JohnnyBoy

      I don’t think you should judge if she can have exciting matches after one match…

    LOL Anyways ,I wish wwe would turn her into D.O.D’s Valet .

    This my girl right here!!! Seems like the type who wont take ish!!
    Shes good on mic VERY strong!! Strong as Melina…but in ring she still a rookie much like Aksana

    I still Digg Maxine n Aksana!

    • trishfan11

      Actually, Maxine is better in the ring than Aksana. And Aksana has really improved in-ring wise (from what I have seen of her in FCW). Maxine is pretty solid in the ring.

  • http://facebook.com/mykael.kennedy mykel1990

    I think it was better for Maxine to come back in this capacity instead of like how Aksana did, she’s very well suited to being a mouthpiece, and honestly, I’m glad the NXT Rookies are trickling back on to the main stage. I’m impatiently awaiting Naomi’s arrival, she’d fit in well with DOD in my opinion, she was all about wrestling since day 1, and believes what they believe. And a rub from the Sisters of Destruction will go a long way for her.

    • Kim099

      Naomi should defiantly be a face diva not another black heel diva they always make

  • trishfan11

    Isn’t Maxine Melina’s cousin? Or have I been getting false information?

    • Raekon

      False information based on both sharing the last name even they are not relatives in any form. :)
      They still know each other backstage though like all of them do.

  • Raekon

    I wouldn’t put my hopes too high up cause she recently became the general manager in fcw again which might indicate that after NXT ends, she is going back on being fcw full time again.

    Except if they change something in her storyline.

    Even she put up a solid match on NXT this time and even she is longer in fcw than several other girls (were going as Liviana back then), she unfortunately never really improved much in the ring.

    AJ, Aksana, Kaitlyn, Naomi all surpassed her in their in ring work and even Jamie or other girls that were only shortly in the wrestling business had partially too.

    She is a great heel persona, has great mic skills and is one of the best managers/valets they can have within the division.

    However, she is stuck in her in ring ability so I hope that she will rather work more outside it then inside it.

    Unless she stucks herself in punching and kicking like Maryse only and put up a submission or two in her arsenal which is not really exciting to watch in my opinion.
