WWE NXT Results - May 22, 2013
By CJ Blaze
This week’s show starts with some singles competition...
Curt Hawkins vs. Sami Zayn
This was Zayn’s debut match on television. It was a decent bout, and Hawkins shockingly had a lot of offense.
Winner: Sami Zayn - by pinfall
Antonio Cesaro vs. Yoshi Tatsu
If you wanted to watch a basic Yoshi squash match, this is what you got. Cesaro won in a minute or less.
Winner: Antonio Cesaro - by pinfall
-Cesaro cut a promo afterwards asking for better competition. Zayn came back out and “accepted” the challenge.
Antonio Cesaro vs. Sami Zayn
This match was very good, and both men had a decent amount of chemistry! They should continue a feud after Zayn barely picked up the victory.
Winner: Sami Zayn - by roll-up
-After the match, Cesaro attacked Zayn, and eventually nailed the neutralizer.
-There was a backstage segment featuring Emma and Audrey Marie.
Enzo Amore vs. Mason Ryan
Mason Ryan has improved since he was sent back to NXT for some work. Ryan dominated, and that’s the way it should’ve been. Ryan’s new finisher (torture rack turned into a neckbreaker) looks cool.
Winner: Mason Ryan - by pinfall
Corey Graves vs. Bray Wyatt
I was not sure how this match would go, but I was definitely impressed! Graves looked awesome had several good spots, as well as Wyatt. These two should continue a feud as well. Graves would’ve had the win by submission if The Wyatt Family hadn’t provided a distraction for an interference to occur.
Winner: Bray Wyatt - by pinfall
-Kassius Ohno came out to attack Wyatt, but all three guys beat him up as well.
Overall Reaction: This was a much better episode than last week. It was great to see the debut of Sami Zayn twice in the same episode. Next week should be full of more action as well.
