What You Missed on WWE NXT, Main Event, Superstars and Saturday Morning Slam

Another week, another three-and-a-half hours of WWE programming that you probably missed. No, I'm not talking about the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view and the free pre-show. I'm talking about the C, D, E and F shows that play throughout the week, under most WWE fans' radars.

Since WWE's focus this week was completely on Hell in a Cell, I use the last slide to analyze whether this past week's editions of these shows added anything to this month's pay-per-view experience. If you've been watching these shows, I'd be interested to hear your take.

But if you're reading this article, you may be one of the many people that don’t have time to watch shows like NXT, Superstars, Main Event and Saturday Morning Slam. That means you probably don’t have time to read lengthy reviews of each show, complete with commentary, predictions and cynical sidetracks. You're probably frustrated that you've already made it to the end of the third paragraph of this article and you have yet to read about any results from any show.

My "notes" version of all four shows is below.

If it piques your interest enough to read on, the slideshow breaks down the shows individually, segment by segment, complete with my questions and predictions.

DD Bonus: In addition to the questions that conclude each individual slide, I have some added bonus questions that I'd like to use to challenge "Dustin's Diamonds." I know you can do it.

There's a bonus question on the NXT slide related to British female wrestlers, and another on the SMS slide about "monster" gimmicks.

 

Highlights of the Action

On NXT, the show opens with a victory for Brodus Clay (which we don't see very often anymore) over Camacho. In the second match, Kassius Ohno lost to Trent Baretta after Richie Steamboat caused a distraction.

In Divas tag action, Layla pins Audrey Marie as they teamed with Alicia Fox and Paige respectively. In a squash match that followed, Bronson pounded Lincoln Brodrick before forcing him to tap out.

In the main event, Seth Rollins defeated Heath Slater, who was accompanied by Vicki Guerrero.

On Main Event, the format remains the same. After video packages for and interviews with both participants in the main event, theirs is the first match we see. This week, Ryback essentially squashes Dolph Ziggler, who is not accompanied to the ring by Vicki.

After two Raw Rebounds and some HIAC promotion, the final match of the night sees ADR get a clean win over Sin Cara. Post-match, both the Primetime Players and Randy Orton make an appearance, setting up a six-man tag for next week featuring Randy Orton, Sin Cara and Rey Mysterio vs. Alberto Del Rio and the Primetime Players.

On Superstars, we are immediately treated to a very solid match in which the Usos get a rare victory over the Primetime Players.

A couple of lengthy Raw Rebounds prevents us from more than one other match, in which we see Jinder Mahal force Tyson Kidd to tap, with minimal assistance from the rest of the 3MB.

On Saturday Morning Slam, Brodus Clay got a victory over Epico after hitting him with the Splat, and Antonio Cesaro defeated Derrick Bateman in a non-title match after executing the Neutralizer.

The theme of the week was Halloween-based, so the other segments included Kane looking back at some of WWE's greatest "monsters," Kaitlynn demonstrating how to make a penguin costume, and a "3rd Degree" segment in which the superstars talked about their favorite Halloween costumes.
