Can anyone explain what the situation was with Riley attacking the wrong person or something? Or a video of it.

I've seen it mentioned a few times but I've never been a big fan of NXT and have no idea what it's referring too.

Basically on the finale of NXT2, the NXT rookies that got eliminated were supposed to gang up and beatdown on Kaval. During the struggle for some reason, Alex Riley attacked Percy Watson and hit his finisher on him. After they had beat Kaval down successfully, Alex Riley & Percy Watson were celebrating together.

Lmao, now I see.

It looks like Riley was getting beatdown by MVP and just went for the nearest black guy afterwards. Hah.

Thanks.

Best part of the entire finale was Titus O'Neil no-selling MVP's drive-by kick. Still makes me lol.

Michael McGillicutty's promo was a foreshadowing of things to come.

It was like a train wreck. And how Riley still managaed to keep his job and constantly appear next to the WWE Champion is beyond me. The man botched something that even kids would notice.

It's one of the greatest segments in the history of WWE. It's like Riley had a stroke or something and couldn't figure out what was happening, and since all black people look alike, he just grabbed the nearest one and beat the holy hell out of him, then celebrated with him 2 minutes later. That, coupled with O'Neil's no-sell on MVP and McGillicutty's incoherent staggering mess of a promo, makes it one of the most wonderful WWE videos around. The best part is that (IMO) they wanted McGillicutty to lead a new Nexus-esque faction with the NXT2 guys called Genesis, but after figuring out that one can't sell, one can't speak, and one hates all black people, WWE just scrapped the whole thing.

If there was a Slammy for "WTF" Moment of the Year, the NXT Season 2 Finale would have been the winner, and Alex Riley and Michael McGillicutty would have accepted the award.

Anyone wo seriously thinks Riley is a racist because he attacked Watson is a fucking idiot. It's obvious Riley's botch is that he thought Watson was a face, how the hell could you confuse a bald head, red glasses wearing Watson with MVP despite them being both black? In fact, Watson is the true fuckup, not only did he go along with it as Riley was beating him, but he decided to go back into the ring and celebrate with them later. Had he half a mind, it could have been sold as Riley no longer needing the obnoxious nerd, so he beat the crap out of him and threw him out.

I would've marked if they'd had Mike Macgillicutty's final promo in the video package for Cole's "And I Quote" award. They could have used it in the "Moment of the Year" award as well.

Dropped the ball twice there, production truck guy.
