Four Story pieces we had tonight. The first is aftermath of Byron Saxton’s elimination. This week JTG is blaming Yoshi for his rookie’s elimination. This builds to the match we got tonight. The second Element is the board breaking Segment with Conor, Titus, Hornswoggle and Kozlov. This is effectively all of our faces who are on the show now. Our next two story elements switch up the pairings we have seen so far this season. Chavo and Darren this week have moved on and steal a win from Kozlov and Conor. And our other pairing is Lucky Cannon and Crew take on Titus and Hornswoggle.
The easiest way to explain what is going on is to ask in terms of who is going to be eliminated. Our two clues are that Titus and Darren won their matches and both have been the dominate pairs. So without a shocker, both of them are likely safe. Conor, as good as he has looked, is the likely person to be eliminated. He’s the second face guy, so he is not going to the finals. His elimination next week I’m going to predict is going to hinge on a force of nature. Maryse
Lucky Cannon’s situation is very interesting. All season long he has pushed himself as the girl stealing guy. First as the block on Yoshi and Ted to an extent. Then stealing Maryse from Yoshi. When tonight’s show ends, there is discord in Lucky-ville though. Maryse’s purse has been destroyed, which is the call back to how Lucky got Maryse in the first place. Lucky has lost his match, through no small part on Marye’s part, which is anther sign that things are not well. Remember Ted did not do so well with Maryse and was a point of contention between those two. This is evident as Maryse leaves the ring area as Luck is pinned. The big question that I have goes as such: If Lucky is able to patch things up with Maryse, he should move on. If things go further south next week on NXT, then Lucky is likely going as well. Either way, we’ll find out next week whom gets sent home.
Question for the Comments
Maryse is a force of nature on NXT.
What type of natural phenomena would you describe her as?
