WWE NXT Clash of the Champions 4/25/2013 Results and Review

WWE NXT 4/25/2013 Results and Review

 Last week's show is here:

"It gives me pleasure for the first time ever to present to you, NXT Clash of the Champions." - Dusty Rhodes
"Sit back and enjoy, NXT Clash of the Champions." - Dusty Rhodes
WWE United States Championship - Antonio Cesaro vs Adrian Neville

They put up a notice that this was taped before Cesaro lost the title.
 Cesaro said he was the longest US champion and would be champ for a long time. Yeah, about that...
Antonio Cesaro won with a Gotch-Style Neutralizer. Strong match here, as if this would be anything else. Both guys looked good with Neville showing off and the crowd loving all of it. It wasn't as good as I expected it to be but it was still very good and it was cool to see two indy stars renewing their rivalry in the WWE. Rating:***1/2

WWE Divas Title - Kaitlyn vs AJ Lee
"So twisted. Lovely. I wish I had a daughter like that." - William Regal
The finish
Kaitlyn won with a spear. Good match here. They timed it good and AJ has been pretty decent in singles matches for a while now. I liked her submissions and she made good facials. Loved that spear at the end too. Rating:***

NXT Championship - Big E Langston vs Brad Maddox
Brad Maddox did his own intro saying he was 295 pounds.
"This is the kind of crowd they used to have at hanging years ago." - William Regal | "Guillotine or cake? Aw give me some more guillotine please." - William Regal on the fans
Big E won in no time in a squash with The Big Ending. He hit two more after with  5 counts.

WWE United States Title - Wade Barrett vs Bo Dallas
Hold on, Bo Dallas is in a main event while Cesaro is in the opener? What?
Bo got booed during his intro and then there was a "No More Bo" chant.
Wade Barrett won with a Bull Hammer in a good match. The crowd was into it and hated Bo, which is cool with me. Bo was decent here though and this may have been his best performance. As long as they keep his push moderate and stop pushing him as some guy who is intolerant to pain, Bo will not annoy me as much as usual. The match didn't have anything too special but it was nice to see Barrett treated like a worthwhile competitor.

Overall thoughts: Great show. There were three good matches and the Big E squash was fine. The crowd was hot all night and this was a success.
