*** PREVIEW ***
WHO WILL BE THE FIRST EVER NUMBER 1 RANK ON NXT?
After winning the Elimination Matches for their respective teams on NXT’s first show two weeks ago, Vladimir Kozlov – representing Team JBL – will go one on one with the Great Khali of Team Rock with both men looking to get the victory to put them on top of their first NXT ranking list. Although there are no prizes for being top of the rankings at this early stage, it would send out a big message to the rest of the NXT competitors that the victor was serious about emerging from the competition on top come WrestleMania 27. The question is, however, how much focus will the Moscow Mauler have on this match after his recent skirmishes with his former Tag Team partner, Santino Marella. Since arriving in NXT, Kozlov has completely bought into JBL’s philosophies – which, needless to say, are not good. After his destruction of Santino on the first show, Santino returned to NXT last week to deny Kozlov the chance to inflict more damage on Kaval. Despite not being a part of the competition, Santino has claimed that he is not finished with Kozlov – will the Italian appear on NXT this week? Khali, on the other hand, is seemingly his usual self and appears to be getting on well with his mentor, The Rock. When business turned serious in the first show though, the Punjabi Playboy proved that the smiles are put to one side for the NXT matches. Can he defeat Kozlov and earn top spot on the rankings?
... AND WHO WILL BE IN BOTTOM POSITION?
With Great Khali and Vladimir Kozlov desperate for victory to earn top spot in the rankings, Kaval and Dolph Ziggler clash this week desperate to avoid defeat and bottom spot in the inaugural rankings. Ziggler and Vickie Guerrero have not made the most auspicious starts on NXT – Dolph fell out with mentor, The Rock, before NXT Season 3 even started and their relationship has not improved after he was eliminated first in the Team Rock Elimination match in Week 1. Vickie is also making enemies and last week was involved in a war of words with her nephew, Chavo. He accused her of being a disgrace to the Guerrero legacy and promised that HE would make Uncle Eddie proud. Ziggler and Vickie’s problems pale into comparison at the side of Kaval though. With JBL as his mentor, he appears to be on a team where the leader, JBL, is completely against him and is ordering his other three team members to beat down Kaval at every opportunity. Even a reluctant MVP has been forced to take Kaval down. With both Ziggler and Kaval in danger of being bottom of the rankings, both men will be desperate for their first NXT wins tonight to secure the not-so-coveted seventh spot – but at least they won’t be bottom.
DIVAS CHAMPIONSHIP ON THE LINE!
After winning the Number 1 contender match with Natalya on NXT Week 1, Maryse’s sights are now set on winning the Divas Championship from Layla tonight on NXT. On last week’s NXT, Maryse pinned the Divas Champion and has vowed that tonight will see her reclaim the Divas Championship for the good of the Divas division. However, underestimating Layla is something that the sultry French-Canadian should do at her peril – Michelle McCool made that mistake back at Cyber Sunday and Survivor Series when Layla twice defeated her to end Laycool and become the undisputed Divas Champion. Tonight, Layla will look to defend her title – especially since the return of the aforementioned Miss McCool and her new muscle, Kharma. Can Maryse become the new Divas Champion tonight?
TAG TEAM TURMOIL SET FOR ROYAL RUMBLE
Last week, WWE owner Chip Butty announced a revamp of the Tag Team division and announced that the Tag Champions, Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins would face five other teams at the Rumble in a Tag Team Turmoil match – Cryme Tyme, Usos, Evan Bourne and Mark Henry, Hart Dynasty and the new team, the British Empire, who will be made up of two from William Regal, Mason Ryan and Finlay. Butty also announced that NXT would host matches between the six teams with the winners earning a later entry into the Turmoil match. Last week, Cryme Tyme ensured the later entry with a victory over the Usos and tonight, Evan Bourne and Mark Henry face the champions, Ryder and Hawkins, for the right to start the match later as well. With the British Empire set to debut in the ring next week against the Hart Dynasty to complete the qualifying, it seems important for both teams tonight to ensure a late entry to keep alive their dreams of walking out of the Rumble PPV as the Tag Team Champions in just over a week’s time.
