FCW Watch (November 13th, 2011): Aksana & Caylee Turner vs Audrey Marie & Cameron Lynn

Why hello there person reading this. It has been a long few weeks since FCW featured a divas match, and unfortunately, it will be another couple more until we meet again. That doesn’t mean, however, that we can’t enjoy what we get though! On this weeks episode, FCW Divas Champion, Audrey Marie teams up with newcomer, Cameron Lynn (Ariane Andrew) to face off against Smackdown Diva, Aksana, and her partner, Caylee Turner (Christina Crawford). On top of that, Raquel Diaz‘s stable, the Ascension also competes in a six man tag team match! I think I have stalled enough time going over what’s to come, so why don’t we actually watch it and form some opinions?


Skip to 2:27

As the theme of espionage and deceit plays across the sound system, out comes the Queen of FCW, Aksana, alongside her partner, the evil, Caylee Turner. Both ladies make their way into the ring as Aksana poses with her crown to all her loyal subjects. Byron Saxton makes the best comparison I have ever heard in relating the two to Cinderella and the Wicked Witch, but not clarifying which is which (genius!). Up next comes a peppy beat, as Audrey Marie and Cameron Lynn enter to perhaps the longest stage pose I have ever seen in my life.

Byron explains that he and Cameron had a talk and that she has calmed herself down in hopes of showing her true potential. The two pose in the ring as the crowd erupts in an “Audrey! Audrey! Audrey!” chant! Audrey removes her western wear as the bell sounds and we get things underway with Cameron and Caylee. They circle around the ring before locking up, as Turner takes advantage with a wrist lock. She adds on the pain, before Cameron lands a punch right in the face and reverses it.

Lynn executes some nice holds to add pressure to the wrist, before flipping her leggy opponent over and applying a brief knee to the head. Caylee gets back up to a vertical base and backs Lynn up to the ropes. Keeping the hold cinched in, Cameron manages a sweet flip off the ropes before pulling Caylee over to her corner and tagging out to Audrey. The chants start up again, as Audrey works over the arm that her partner started. Showing off some skills she obviously learned on the farm, Audrey flips Caylee over like she’s in a rodeo and continues to work over the punished arm.

The two get to a vertical base, as our Divas Champion Irish whips Turner into the ropes. Caylee fights back with a shoulder block, before charging off the ropes and managing to avoid the trap set up by the cowgirl. Turner drags Audrey into her corner and tags out to Aksana, but Marie ends up taking both women out! She pulls Caylee to the center of the ring and goes for an Irish whip, but Caylee counters and Aksana ends up tripping Audrey face first into the canvas. Aksana then proceeds to slam Audrey’s head against the ring apron multiple times as if to show her that she’s done playing games; She wants her pink belt back!

Aksana throws Audrey into the ring and gets a near fall, before tossing her into the team corner and choking her with her leg. From there, she runs up with a huge boot across the face and tags Caylee Turner back in. Turner takes control with various kicks to the face, before making the quick tag back in to the Queen. Aksana continues the double team beat down of Audrey, before locking in a choke hold in the center of the ring. The crowd begins to get behind Audrey, as she fights out of the hold. Aksana doesn’t let off the pressure though, as she hoists Marie up and drops her like a flipped burger on a southern style grill.

Audrey tries to regain her composure, but Aksana continues to drop elbows and knees for a two count. She tags Caylee Turner back in, who scores with a quick roll up for a near fall. Following it up with a nice leg drop, Caylee hooks the leg, but the “never say die” attitude instilled by Audrey’s farmhand grandmother gives her the power to kick out. Tag back into Aksana, as the two continue dismantling Audrey Marie. She locks in a choke hold, but Audrey fights out with punches and a slightly off jawbreaker, showing the wear and tear the two ladies are causing on her.

Finally, she manages to fight off and make the tag to Cameron Lynn! Lynn runs in and ducks a clothesline attempt from Aksana, taking care of Caylee Turner on the ring apron. Aksana charges forward, but is met with a nice drop toe hold, followed up with an elbow, and then a series of clotheslines. She goes for a third attempt, but Aksana ducks and kicks Lynn right in the stomach. She sends her into the ropes, but Cameron ducks an attack and connects with an O’Connor roll up! Close call there, but Aksana manages to kick out and fling Cameron forward into a tag in to Audrey Marie. The Divas Champion charges forward with a monkey flip attempt, but Aksana catches her in mid air and drills her with the Devo Drop (Spinebuster) for the victory! The devilish duo rejoice in their win, as Audrey and Cameron try to cope with what has happened.

Also check out Raquel Diaz’s stable, The Ascension (Conor O’Brian, Kenneth Cameron, & Tito Colon), as they face off against the team of Colin Cassady, Jason Jordan, and Mike Dalton below:

Thoughts: A solid outing for the ladies tonight. Aksana works very well in her heel role, and Caylee Turner also surprisingly pulls it off great. Audrey Marie is coming along nicely, and I enjoyed her work with both women. She obviously got fatigued during the match, but that’s to be expected for someone rather new. I commend her on stepping her game up a lot since her title win. Her matches are definitely getting better and better!

Say what you will about Cameron Lynn, but she’s one of my favorites in FCW. I like that she tries to be unique and stand out. I think it’s great that she has a style to her gear, and she does seem to be picking up quickly considering this was only her second match. From what I saw at the live event Friday night, she’s gotten even better since this was filmed, and I can’t wait to see what she brings to the table after a few more months of training. I would rather her be a face because I think she has a way to her that is likable (unless those dreaded Tough Enough comments get brought up again…) and I think she can fire a crowd up easily with her spunky personality.

Also, The Ascension is still one of the best things in FCW. I pray that Tito being called up to Smackdown with Primo and Hunico won’t hinder their potential because it’s too great to stall in FCW. I already have to watch both Husky Harris & Naomi be stuck down here, I don’t need it with the Ascension too!

    Bobby,

    Tito has been both called up and joined Hunico and Primo, he’s now going by his former masked wrestler gimmick name of Epico.

    Bobby i see you working overtime on the site man, keep up the good work. As for the divas, many people completely shitted on Ariane before they gotta chance to see what she can do, and she is improving, she is not bad, especially for someone who had her second match. FCW is doing wonders with these girls, lets just hope and pray that WWE management does the same once they get called up, but im not holding my breath.

  • JJ

    Caylee and Audrey are coming along nicely. Audrey has obviously been working hard since getting the title, and reminds me a little of Candice Michelle! Caylee is just the spitting image of her sister, and I know alot of people don’t like that and think she should develop her own personality, but I think her getting called up as the copycat sister could be great (and adorable).

    Who would have thought a while back that Aksana would be considered a pro? She’s looking more and more confident in the ring each week.

    But surprise of the night goes to Miss Cameron Lynn. I know people have been dying to hate on her, but she’s taken to the business pretty damn well. She’s shown bucketloads of personality every week and, although what she’s shown in the ring so far has been simple, she’s nailed it. She’ll never get credit from some, but I’ll give some to her now: she’s looking great so far.

      LOVE the ‘copycat sister’ storyline.

      • Marshy

        It is like Alicia Foxx is sort of like Beyonce Knowles of wrestling while Caylee Turner is sort of like Solange Knowles of wrestling.

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

    Great divas tag match. LOVE Caylee’s top, and i’ll be honest… Cameron is doing quite well in the ring. I can’t wait to see her progress over the course of the next few months.

  • LadyGoDiva

    I have noticed that Caylee does act like her sister Alicia Fox.
    I’m glad to see Cameron go back to her original hair again.

    Raquel Diaz and the Ascension is really starting to creep my out they’re doing a swell job by going into character, would like to see they go up to the main roster.

  • Mr. Asstastic

    I’m so devastated that Naomi and Cameron are no longer a team. :’(

    But, with that being said, Cameron is showing great strides in the early going. Let’s hope she keeps it up.

  • eyecon

    Let me start by saying I’m loving Cameron as a face and Caylee as a heel but someone still has yet to explain why just last week Cameron was heel and Caylee was face in pretty much the same tag match…lol

    One week Caylee is with Audry next week shes kicking her brains in. One week Cameron has that stupid blonde wig on nexts she a super hyped fan favorite…lol

    I think the change is good for both girls Caylee as a face was too goody goody the heel gives her an edge but next time FCW if your gonna do a 360 give us an explanation

  • ricky_says_hi

    i prefer the roles reversed with Cameron as the heel and Caylee as the face even though both are pretty good at it.

  • WWFoverWWE

    The announcer messed up on the winners. She said “here our your winners, Cameron Lynn and Aksana”.

    • http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=-3&id=100000716103622#/Only.the.best.get.through?ref=profi Team Laycoolness!!!

      Hahaha yes I was waiting for someone else to notice that, I commented on the youtube page calling the announcer a FAIL! LOL!

  • trishfan11

    I love Audrey so much. It is amazing how good she has become in the ring in such a short period of time. Does she have a website/fan forum/facebook/twitter or anything of that kind?

  • DarknessRuler

    OMFG, Audrey’s poses are getting longer and longer, WTF!!??

    • Bobby

      For some reason I think they are being told to do that before giving them the cue to go to the ring. I’ve seen some of the men standing there for a ridiculously long time recently as well =S It’s pretty strange and seems to have just started a couple weeks ago

      • Liam ‘

        Haha yeah I noticed that too. It seemed as if they stood there forever. Audreys smiles seemed quite false too or maybe over exaggerated? I don’t follow FCW but is Cameron Lynn Ariane from TE? I also see a lot of A.fox is Caylee, but Fox has more “swag” ;)

        • Marshy

          Cameron Lynn is Ariane from TE.

  • Francisco

    Great write-up Bobby! Very Well done. The match was good considering that we had 3 green girls in the ring. Caylee is green I have to say, and I HATE! how she acts like Alicia. She needs to get a gimmick of her own. Audrey is the next Naomi, she is just improving faster and faster and Im the only one to think like damn! This is the next generation of Divas! AMAZING! Cameron was solid as some would say, and I really liked her style she just needs to stop with the hesitations. I really love the division but imagine when Britani Knight and Taya Valkyrie get there! Its gonna be even more amazing! I wonder what names will they get… Aksana was the best on this match, she just needs to learn how to carry newer wrestlers because I didnt like her selling of Cameron clotheslines it made it look sloppy. But overall it was awesome

    Skipping on to a thing that makes me upset. The fact that Eden Stiles as never been seen wrestling! I get these vibe that she will impress alot, but we cant really tell. It gets me frustrated that WWE signs divas and use them as announcers and nor wrestlers.

    • shameronstar

      Eden Stiles(while she did botch horribly at the end) is probably, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful divas that wwe has ever had, so I don’t want her to wrestle and risk getting banged up.

    • Raekon

      Eden is just a ring announcer. She replaced the previous one that left WWE.
      She was never meant to be a wrestler and I also doubt she will go that way.
      Even she botched the announcing towards the end this time, she is actually a great ring announcer in all brands she appears. :)

  • shameronstar

    HA! I know it. I remember when Cameron(Ariane) got a lot of hate after her brief stint on Tough Enough, but I know if wwe signed her she’d have potential to develop into an entertaining diva. While she is still green, she has shown that not only is she a vibrant personality but she’s developing her wrestling skills at a good rate too. Also, I felt a similar way about Kaitlyn while others hated her and once again I know she would develop well too:D

  • http://www.diva-dirt.com candice7000

    After watching this I changed my mind on Cameron. This girl has potential. She actually reminds me of Angela Fong aka Savannah. Hopefully her career doesn’t end up like hers.

  • FashionQueen86

    In the Photo, Caylee looks like a black Maryse. Almost perfect!

  • http://ahlanthony.tumblr.com ahlanthony

    A lot of ya’ll hated Cameron before but look at her now! She’s doing good! Aksana, I never thought this day would come that she’ll be treated like a real pro or kinda like a legend in FCW. Audrey and Caylee did good. I wanna see more of Raquel Diaz tho.

  • Mike in Like

    I dunno for some reason I feel like they could be grooming Caylee to come in as Alicia Fox’s “twin” and have them feud with the Bellas. It would work because Caylee looks almost more alike to Alicia then Brie to Nikki.

    Good match, hopefully this will shut up a few of the Cameron haters. Aksana looked great tonight and I also digged Audrey. Overall the FCW divas are doing good for themselves at the moment.

  • KellyEve

    The FCW Divas are better than the WWE divas, much potential and longer matches just saying

  • bxradimus

    I now understand what Nicole Matthews meant when she said something along the lines of “…it’s worse than watch the FCW girls in the ring”

    • WWFoverWWE

      Sounds like sour grapes to me.

  • SherriShepherdWWE

    nice match, Cameron is coming along very nicely, and it is interesting to see her in the ring!!!, and wow Caylee looks hot in the video, but didnt Tamina wear that same ring gear like last year lol

    Audrey is coming along very nicely, she sells her moves very well, for someone so so green, and Aksana is doing very well also

    However, i cant wait until Tenille, Taya, and Ivelisse all debut on FCW

    Also, has it been confirmed by Britani that she was signed, because i think i read last week that she won the WAW ladies hardcore championship, i cant see WWE allowing her to win a title while signed to them, and also did anyone from diva-dirt hear weither or not the Jazzy B and Rachel Walker got signed or not after there WWE try out in the UK?????

  • http://twitter.com/BroskiRomano MrMantastic

    HOLY CRAP ITS TYLER BLACK!!! o.0

    When did this happen????

    Hey Aksana is way too covered up man lol @ WWE Desexualizing the women smh..
    and isnt that Caylee Alicia Fox’s lil sister from Tough Enough? and is the cameron chick the female who trish Stratus sent her ass home because she wanted to be “Divalicious” from Tough Enough???
