FCW house show report

Report by Adam Mize, PWTorch reader
(1) Big E. Langston beat Jacob Novak.
(2) Tyler Reks beat Rudy Parker.
(3) Season Two NXT (Percy Watson & Titus O'Neill & Lucky Cannon) beat Nexus's Darren Young & G-rilla & a partner.
(4) Nexus's Skip Sheffield beat Conrad Tanner.
Sheffield cut a promo about how everything he does is not for the fans, but for the Nexus. He took digs at Tom Prichard and Norman Smiley.
Byron Saxton hosted a Divas bikini contest, which NXT ring announcer Jamie Keyes won. WWE Divas champion Alicia Fox made a surprise interruption, denounced the contest, and was ultimately laid out by FCW Divas champion Naomi Night.
(5) Michael McGillicutty beat Curt Hawkins. McGillicutty interestingly came out a partial version of his father, Mr. Perfect Curt Hennig's, old ring music. Hawkins's crowd interaction was pretty entertaining.
(6) FCW tag champions Los Aviatores beat The Handsome Man Express ("Delicious" Derrick Bateman & his "heterosexual lifemate" Leo Kruger) to retain the FCW Tag Titles. One of the luchadors was unmasked, ran to the back, and returned later to make the save.
(7) Kaval beat Nexus's Heath Slater and Johnny Curtis in a triple threat Falls Count Anywhere match. Kaval won via submission with an arm-bar in a good match. Before the match, Slater talked about the Nexus having his back. Kaval said he expected tricks, so he asked a few friends to help. The current NXT Rookies and other FCW wrestlers came out to patrol the auditorium for Nexus interference. Skip Sheffield and Darren Young tried to get involved, but to no avail.
Good show. There were about 250-300 in attendance.
