Two weeks before one of the six Rookie Divas will be eliminated in the first NXT elimination of Season Three, the third week of NXT Season Three came to you from the U.S. Cellular Coliseum in Bloomington, IL. Two weeks before the first NXT elimination where the Rookie Diva who wins the most NXT Challenges would be immune from being eliminated first, Naomi leads with two NXT Challenge wins, followed by Jamie & Kaitlyn, who both have one NXT Challenge win! With two weeks left to win enough challenges to stay a part of NXT Season Three, the challenges would continue on NXT!
- Musical Chair Challenge: A.J. def. Jamie, Naomi, Aksana, Maxine, & Kaitlyn
- A.J. def. Maxine by pin following a branbuster counter.
- Talk The Talk Challenge: A.J. def. Jamie, Naomi, Aksana, Maxine, & Kaitlyn
- 6-Diva Tag: Kelly Kelly, Naomi, & Jamie def. LayCool & Kaitlyn by Naomi reversing a pin attempt by Kaitlyn.
The show opens with NXT commentator Josh Mathews at ringside, but Mathews would not be alone for long as SmackDown’s “Straightedge Savior” CM Punk comes out and sits in the seat formerly held by Michael Cole to serve as a commentator for NXT!
NXT Host Matt Striker then introduces the six Rookie Divas as Kaitlyn, Maxine, Akana, A.J., Naomi, & Jamie take their spots in the ring! As Striker starts to praise Kaitlyn for winning the Obstacle Course Challenge last week, Striker is interrupted by SmackDown Consultant and WWE Pro Vickie Guerrero, who states that the brought a couple of close “friends” to coach her Rookie Diva, Kaitlyn, in her match against Jamie and those two friends are the self-proclaimed “co-Unified Divas Champions” LayCool come out! Michelle McCool tells Kaitlyn that she is “lucky” to have Vickie as a WWE Pro and she can “trust” them because they are the new Unified Divas Champion, as well as being the reasons behind Kaval winning NXT Season Two! Layla would then say that even if her absent WWE Pros, The Bella Twins, were there it would “not matter” because they are The Bella Twins! LayCool then turns their attention to the other Rookie Divas as McCool admits that Maxine, “the one in black” scares her and tells Aksana to “speak English”! LayCool continues that A.J. looks like a “cute little mouse” and accuses Naomi of looking at Kaval and saying that Kaval is the “property of LayCool”! The WWE Pro for Naomi, Kelly Kelly, then interrupts LayCool and calls the duo “dumb and dumber” before challenging LayCool to make the match a 6-Diva Tag with LayCool & Kaitlyn taking on her, Jamie, & Naomi and LayCool accepts the challenge! Will Kelly Kelly and two of the Rookie Divas, Jamie & Naomi, teach LayCool some respect or will LayCool prove why they are the co-Unified Divas Champions by leading themselves and Kaitlyn to victory?
Then it was time for the first NXT challenge of the night to take place as the six Rookie Divas would compete in a Musical Chairs Challenge where the six Rookie Divas would walk around a group of chairs while music plays and, when the music stops, the Rookie Divas must sit in a chair and, whoever is unable to find a chair will be eliminated and one chair will be taken away until one Rookie Diva is left standing! In the end, it was A.J. putting her name on the board with one NXT Challenge win! With the first NXT elimination coming in two weeks, which Rookie Diva will be immune and which Rookie Diva will be eliminated?
Backstage, Rookie Diva Aksana confronts her WWE Pro Goldust and reveals that there are problems with her work visa and she could be deported! Goldust assures her Rookie Diva that everything will be okay and that Aksana should focus on being the winner of NXT Season Three! Will Aksana be deported and taken out of the NXT competition?
Two of the Rookie Divas would go one-on-one on NXT as A.J. would square off against Maxine! In the end, it was A.J. countering a brainbuster by Maxine en route to picking up the win! However, A.J.’s celebration is cut short by Michael Cole, who comes out and claims that many fans have begged him to return to NXT because NXT without Michael Cole is “simply bad”! Cole then thanks CM Punk for filling in for him before proclaiming that he has decided to “fight the good fight” and return to NXT! Cole would then hug both CM Punk and Josh Mathews before taking his seat at the announce desk between Punk & Mathews!
Then it was time for the second NXT challenge of the night as the six Rookie Divas would compete in the Talk The Talk Challenge where the six Rookie Divas will each be given sixty seconds to discuss a random topic and the fans would pick the winner! Jamie was up first with the random topic of “teeth” and Jamie says that she is a “strong, athletic woman” and she will prove what “sexy, smart, and powerful truly means”! Up next was Naomi with a random topic of “toupee” and Naomi says that she can not think of anything to say about a toupee and asks if they are there to “wrestle”, because that is what she wants to do! Following the first two Rookie Divas, Matt Striker informs both Jamie & Naomi that they are disqualified for going off topic! A.J. was up next with the topic of “caffeine” and A.J. says that she knows all about caffeine because she “bounces everywhere” before saying that competing to be a WWE Diva is the “drug” she needs to get up in the morning and that she is “natural dynamite”! Up next was Aksana with the topic of “llama” and Aksana repeatedly asked NXT Host Matt Striker what a llama is, which took all of Aksana’s time! Maxine was up next with the topic of “foot” and Maxine proclaims that she will squish A.J. with her foot! Kaitlyn was up next with the topic of “ignition” and she says that she was told to picture everyone in their underwear to be less nervous before saying that doing so gets her “ignition” going! After all six Divas spoke on their random topics, the WWE fans select A.J. as the winner, meaning that A.J. now has two NXT Challenge wins! Now that both A.J. and Naomi both have two NXT Challenge wins, while Jamie & Kaitlyn have one each, which Rookie Diva will earn immunity from elimination in two weeks time?
Then it was time for the main event as the self-proclaimed “co-Unified Divas Champions” Michelle McCool & Layla would team with Vickie Guerrero’s Rookie Diva, Kaitlyn, would face WWE Pro Kelly Kelly and Rookie Divas Naomi & Jamie in a 6-Diva Tag Match! In the end, it was Naomi reversing a pinfall attempt by Kaitlyn en route to picking up the win! After the match, LayCool gets in the face of Kaitlyn for losing the match and Kaitlyn would shove Michelle McCool, which would lead to Layla holding the ankle of Kaitlyn as Michelle McCool delivers a vicious kick to the face of the Rookie Diva! How will Kaitlyn respond to the attack by LatCool? What is next for Kaitlyn as her WWE Pro Vickie Guerrero continues to be displeased with her Rookie Diva?
