WWE NXT Results 08/16/11

WWE NXT Results from Bakersfield, CA:

Todd Grisham introduced the show in Bakersfield saying how the WWE landscape has changed dramatically since Randy Orton won the World Heavyweight Championship and Del Rio won the WWE Championship. Titus O'Neil, AJ and Hornswoggle arrived out to start the show.

Titus got on the mic in the ring to welcome fans to the show. Titus said he's been on a journey to win NXT, but Hornswoggle's also been on a journey as well to find true love. He told AJ that Hornswoggle had something to tell her. Horney mumbled and grunted on the mic, so Titus translated that Horney said he couldn't find any diva more special than her to spend time with.

Horney got down on one knee to give AJ a candy pop ring. Titus said it's a small token of Hornswoggle's loyalty to her. Titus asked the crowd to egg on AJ to accept his loyalty. AJ told Hornswoggle it doesn't matter how big he is or the size of the gifts he gives, it's the size of his heart. Derrick Bateman came out to diss them all for making this into some mushy soap opera. Titus dissed Bateman on his jeans and said he has a yeast infection, then threatened to kick his teeth in.

Bateman insulted AJ, saying he couldn't tell who's the leprechaun and who's the troll right now. It ended up with Horney storming up the ramp, and Titus coming with him to chase Bateman backstage. Meanwhile, former NXT diva, Maxine, got in the ring to attack AJ, kicking her down and tossing the candy ring on her.

JTG vs. Tyson Kidd

JTG hit a side slam on Kidd to make a comeback early in the match. JTG with the near fall but Kidd kicked out. Moments later, JTG had another near fall, then started to pound away on Kidd.

Later, JTG tried to jump off the corner at Kidd who ran under him. Kidd landed on the mat and then bounced against the ropes. However, Kidd managed to trip him up and get him into a half Boston Crab. JTG tried to struggle to reach the rope to break it up, but couldn't. Eventually he tapped out.

As Kidd was celebrating his win, his music cut out, and a strange Japanese symbol showed up on the Titantron.

Maxine said on the mic that Hornswoggle wishes he could handle a real woman like her, but he can't, so instead he settles for less, like AJ. She said if he thinks they're causing problems for him now, just wait, because they're just getting started.

Titus O'Neil vs. Derrick Bateman

Titus O'Neil arrived to the ring without Hornswoggle or AJ. O'Neil got Bateman in the corner early for a huge chop to the chest, then whipped him hard across to the other corner. He followed with a big scoop slam, elbow drop and near fall.
