WWE Main Event Redux (February 27th, 2013): Crazy in Love-stache

Hello hello everyone, and welcome to this weeks Main Event Redux. Now, I know what you’re all likely thinking… “there was nothing reported about a Divas match on last night’s show! Is this no-named recapper flat out dumb or just plain stupid?!” Well, you’d be correct… on one of those (hopefully). There was no match involving the divas, but there were a few fun segments involving a certain Divas Champion named Kaitlyn. Now being that whenever I’m asked for my religion, I tick the “other” option and write-in “NXT Redemption”, I clearly love these off the wall, quirky couple segments and will do everything in my power to get them as much attention as I can, so ladies and gentlemen, allow me to paint the picture of America’s Next Top Pairing in the form of the Brady Bunch intro.


Here’s the story
of a Texan lady
She had just won the Divas title
It was many different colors — like her hair
But she wore it proud

Here’s the story
of a man with a lovestache
who just split up from his tag team par-ta-ner.
He was lost and… partly confused
Until he laid eyes on her

That was the day that the lady met the fellow
It was right before her tag team match
She could bare-ly focus on the ring work
Because she was too in-to… the lovestache

The love-stache
The love-stache

She was too in-to the love-stache!

Okay, now that I’ve familiarized or introduced everyone with the latest happenings involving Cody Rhodes and Kaitlyn, let’s delve into tonight’s breakdown before I start breaking out into other TV theme songs.

Backstage, we are taken to our wandering champion, Kaitlyn from earlier today. Although we don’t know what went wrong in her relationship to NXT God, Derrick Bateman, they are clearly not together anymore and I have been in mourning ever since the segment aired on SmackDown where she and Cody had their first awkward meet. Anyways, she walks up to the man of the hour and his ‘stache of love and they engage in one of those awkward moments we all have where we bump into someone and then both end up trying to go the same way to get around the other.

… Did she just laugh-snort? I’m not one to ever become speechless in these reduxes, but I legitimately just had to step away from the computer so I could compose myself of my non-stop laughter. Okay I’m back, and I’m… oh crap I just replayed the laugh-snort. Be right back, guys. (Note: My attempt to get past it was repeated a good seven or eight times) Alright, Kaitlyn seems a little embarrassed at the action her body just exerted, but Cody welcomes it and tries to use this as promotion of his dance skills which I can only assume means he’s trying to get cast on the next season of Dancing with the Stars.

She asks whether the “moves” in question are actually his, or that of his love-stache which I think needs a name. We’ll get to that later though, because in comes Sheamus! Sheamus drapes his slightly pale arm around her shoulder, (Homeboy’s not been looking as white as usual… and yes that’s the last time I’ll ever say homeboy. Just wanted to try it out and clearly we can tell it’s not me) before calling Cody “Magnum, P.I.” TV references! In turn, Cody doesn’t want to be upstaged by the man with the orange eyebrows, and thus he dubs Sheamus “Handlebars” because his facial hair resembles the very item used to help us balance on a bicycle.

Sheamus reveals that he’s in no way ashamed to be called that, because it’s much better than having a mustache that looks like a dang caterpillar (which is kind of a true statement… sorry Cody). Cody refuses to be disrespected by Sheamus any longer, and is sick of him sticking his nose where it doesn’t belong. Because of this, he wants to face Sheamus in a match with the stipulation being that Kaitlyn’s Divas Championship will be hanging from a pole above the ring and the first one to grab it gets to kiss her. Oh wait, sorry. I got sidetracked as for some reason that Christmas in November mistletoe on a pole match where Brie Bella won the opportunity to kiss a superstar and never used it just played in my head. Anyways, the match between Cody and Sheamus will be a singles bout… but one has to assume that Cody wants to impress Kaitlyn with a victory and not get shown up by the fighting Irish.

Sheamus thinks he’s joking since he beat him in a match a few weeks ago, but Cody dubs their past meeting a fluke and seems intent on getting a measure of revenge tonight. Sheamus laughingly agrees after a moment of deliberation, before asking Kaitlyn to make sure young Cody lays off the caffeine in the future. After Sheamus heads off to possibly tweet photos of his arse once he hits a certain number of followers, Cody asks Kaitlyn to watch his match tonight because, wait for it…

Tonight, the love-stache… oh it strikes BACK.

She again bursts out with laughter — no snort on this one — which seems to catch him off guard, much like it did me as I was expecting a double snort this go around. She tries to hide it by putting her hands over her mouth, which is quite smart as her laugh did kind of sound like a sneeze, but Cody shakes his head and heads off. Our Divas Champion could be finding love, and the night’s not over yet!

(Skip to 2:04 if you want to get to Kaitlyn’s part.)

Backstage we go once more following Cody’s match against Sheamus, as an angered Cody Rhodes marches through the hallway. A kind person simply tries to say hello to him, but unfortunately learns the hard way that until Cody has had a chance to calm down following a match that doesn’t end in his favor, you do not approach him. What’s this? I spy some blond… and black(!) hair walking out from around the corner and heading Cody’s way. It’s Kaitlyn once again, who stands looking on as he slams a trunk in frustration. (Side note: My inner NXT superfan is giving me so many vibes of the segment where Alicia Fox offered to give JTG a makeover right now)

He says hi to her, but where was that kind hello when the person walking by said it to him earlier? Is this a case of sexism?! Whatever the case may be, something just caught my eye in that there’s a random man with grey hair standing by the door and I don’t quite know why. Anyways, Kaitlyn gives Cody that burst of hope he needs to continue on in the day to day life of being a pro wrestler, by letting him know that the mustache doesn’t give up! It’s sort of like that motivational speech a coach gives to their team to let them know that a loss is not the end of the world. Following some awkward silence and what looks to be Kaitlyn not knowing what to do with her hands (a common problem facing many citizens), she simply runs away from him and leaves him speechless while I sing a joyous hymn at the fact we have a new male/female duo forming before our very eyes!

Thoughts: What can I say that hasn’t been said, repeated, emphasized, and repeated again using different word selection above? We’ve not been getting much Kaitlyn on TV as of late, so this was a huge plus to actually see her on screen. Not only that, she’s getting a storyline that will hopefully put her on Raw and SmackDown more often, and the segments were a lot of fun to watch, replay, and recap. Now being the odd person that I am, I’ve already compiled a time line of how I would handle their future together, which may or may not be a little bit influenced by my insanity. The list is as follows:

01. They will agree to go on a date in which Kaitlyn will give Cody’s lovestache a name. I mean come on, commentary loves to discuss how she names cats after people, so why not mustaches?

02. After a few weeks together, they will be insulted by Dolph Ziggler and AJ in a backstage segment, leading to a feud between the four. It saddens me that we probably don’t have enough time for this to happen before WrestleMania, but I’ll take it whenever I can get it.

03. Kaitlyn will snort-laugh at least six more occurrences throughout their time together.

04. Cody will win the United States Championship, and together they will unite their flag and butterfly belts to become the supreme power couple.

05. Following a victory over JTG and Alicia Fox (They WILL reunite one day and I won’t hear otherwise), Cody shocks the world by dropping to one knee and proposing. I’ve even obtained a photograph of the ring:

06. Their wedding will be in Las Vegas on an upcoming edition of Raw Roulette, where all the Divas act as bridesmaids and their dresses are Las Vegas Showgirl costumes… JOKE. I’m not even serious about that one. The two will get married though, and their wedding will be crashed by the debut of Paige and Corey Graves. Paige drops Kaitlyn (yes, in the wedding dress) with her finisher, as Corey lays out Cody and proceeds to pull out a razor and shave off the lovestache. (It had to be done)

07. Kaitlyn realizes her love may have been influenced by the power of the ‘stache, and then decides to friendzone Cody for the time being.

08. Youtube breaks down due to the overwhelmingly large number of Cody/Kaitlyn tribute videos that get uploaded of their time together, which all include slow-mo black and white clips and are set to either “I Can’t Let Go” by Jennifer Hudson or “Sandcastles in the Sand” by Robin Sparkles.

And there you have it. That’s what I would do with this duo, and I’m well aware that this could very well be dropped after two weeks like many other unfortunate pairings I’ve seen come and go through the years. What those pairings have taught me though, is that I’m going to make the most of it while it’s airing!

Until next week (hopefully) — peace!

    Where was Kaitlyn’s diva’s title? I guess she’s ashamed of it:P

    • shameronstar

      Also, I see this as them trying to turn Cody face!

      • Raekon

        I think so to and with Kaitlyn turning him face it could work really well.
        He wasn’t his typicall heel self this time but rather a smoother, rather likeable version of it. :)

  • Raekon

    Was nice to watch and I think the pairing will work well for both sides.

    Cody can turn face and get over as a face in the process while Kaitlyn can take more air time and be more involved with the superstars through him.

    I think Codys body is far more attractive now too that he beefed up a bit cause previous to his relationship with Eden, his legs were so think that looked like chicken legs to me. :p

    Now his body looks well and equally proportioned which looks much better in my opinion.
    As about the “lovestache”, I agree with everyone that says it needs to go and it is a good opportunity for him to shave it off through a storyline. ^_^

  • puppies

    Oh, Bobby, how I do love your reduxes. I enjoyed this very much, hopefully this leads to more Kaitlyn TV time, and a Dolph or Big E and AJ feud.

  • wwe141

    AJ’s 1sec. reign as Divas Champion(at a house show) >> Kaitlyn reign as Divas Champion…i dont know why i even bothered to think WWE would actually do something with her as champion

    • puppies

      I always wanted them to show that on TV. It would’ve made Vickie and AJ’s feud way more interesting, and would’ve been a cool moment for the Divas.

  • http://twitter.com/rodneyclint rodneyclint

    Hmmm never thought about them using the Kaitlyn/Cody match to introduce the feud with AJ/Dolph. Bad news is, if they go that route we may get another mixed tag at WM.

    • puppies

      It’s better than getting nothing at mania, which is what we are heading towards.

  • Jinzo

    lmao the idea of Kaitlyn friend-zoning Cody if he loses his mustache is genius. I legit believe WWE would do that too.

  • charovnica

    I actually dig the love-stache lol But it’ll be nice for a diva to be involved in a storyline..whatever it is. It’s still something! But I now think they should forget about the powerhouse Kaitlyn and make her the proper underdog diva.A debuting Anya would help with that…or at least a heel Layla.

  • charovnica

    Also seeing how Kaitlyn isn’t with the title even backstage…probably means that we won’t get any diva action on WM unless you count AJ being ring-side while Ziggler cash in or fail to cash in.And maybe..some Naomi & Cameron on the pre-show with Brodus

  • Monkey Tennis

    Yes. Because what the Divas Champion needs right now is to end up as someone’s girlfriend. becuase that’ll increase her chances of matches on Raw and her OWN storyline within her OWN division.

    Oh wait. No, it won’t.

    Sure, fans like Bobby won’t care and that’s fair enough. People watch the WWE for all sorts of reasons and wrestling ain’t at the top of everyone’s list. But for those of us that want to see the Divas in action a) at all and b) considerably moreso than they are now, any pairing with Kaityln and whoever this guy is clearly isn’t the way to go.

    And no. Teaming a Diva with a male superstar does not mean that are any more likely to get more ringtime. Or indeed ANY ringtime. Sure, it used to (in some, but certainly not all cases). Many, many, many, many years ago. But today it doesn’t.

    As AJ continues to illustrate. And no, a random match on the kids brand – that she lost! -really doesn’t count. Unfortumately, these days, pairing a Diva with a superstar is more likely to bury her than boost her.

    • puppies

      It’s sort of different with Kaitlyn, because she is not only the champ of the division, but an active member of it. AJ was never really used much in-ring to begin with. When Natalya was paired with Khali (as awful as that was) she became the second most used face, only behind Kaitlyn.

      Besides, giving her something to do (which has already given her more TV time than her feud with Tamina) is never a bad thing. We just have to wait and see where they go with this before being too negative or even too positive about it.

      • Monkey Tennis

        But she shouldn’t need ‘something to do’. She’s the Divas Champion. She should be wrestling. And defending her title. And, if the WWE ever made more than a token effort, be involved in a feud that people genuinely cared about.

        I suspect Natalya’s use is less about Khali and more about the lack of depth in the division. And let’s be honest, ‘second most used face’ isn’t saying much, considering that the most used face is a rarely seen commodity!

        I guess I just see articles like this as essentially condoning the WWE’s treatment of the Divas and the current state of the division. Personally, I just want to see the Divas as wrestlers. Not girlfriends.

        • aldo

          We all want that, but it’s WWE, so just get use to it.

  • DivaMatches

    Kaitlyn’s my favorite current roster diva, I think this will be good for her beside she can get really over in a storyline with Cody so lets hope this goes well

  • nathan3050

    i dont know why but that tiny little singger from kaitlyn at the end reminded me of trish. i hope wwe sticks with this and it doesnt end up being like alberto and rosa!

  • redsandman99

    I think they’re cute lol. If we’re not going to get a diva’s title match at Wrestlemania, I would honestly go for Kaitlyn/Cody vs Dolph/AJ. No celebrity involvement and no massive clusterfuck with ten divas and three minutes of time.

    • xBananaPancake

      Kaitlyn/Cody Vs AJ/Dolph that would be cool. But i would rather see a battle royal or Divas title match.

      • redsandman99

        Diva’s title match would be my first point (Kaitlyn vs Layla or Kaitlyn vs AJ are my picks) but if we had to go the tag route and a mixed tag at that, the Kaitlyn/Cody vs AJ/Dolph thing would be my pick.

  • aldo

    “08. Youtube breaks down due to the overwhelmingly large number of Cody/Kaitlyn tribute videos that get uploaded of their time together, which all include slow-mo black and white clips and are set to either “I Can’t Let Go” by Jennifer Hudson or “Sandcastles in the Sand” by Robin Sparkles.” That’s sooooo true! XDDDDDDD
    That was incredibly funny! Especially Robin Sparkles LOL

    Ok. I hope they don’t drop the “storyline” with Layla’s heel turn because of this, but if they do it, I’m thinking of a tag team match between Kaitlyn and either Cody or Sheamus (because he is face, and maybe Kaitlyn will get more popularity since he is one of the top superstars) vs. Dolph and AJ. Hopefully, the match will be the beginning of the feud between Kaitlyn and AJ.

    • hbgoo1975

      Kaitlyn will never team with a WWE Superstar! Unless it’s Khali.

  • kio3j2

    They look so cute together! I ship for Cody and Kaitlyn. Oh god I sound like my little sister. :(
