The Primetime Players come out and Titus O’Neil blows his whistle, throws the penalty flag and calls foul on the WWE universe for not acknowledging them as the most entertaining and dominant tag team in the company. Darren Young garbs the microphone, pauses, and yells “YEAH…WHAT HE SAID.”
O’Neil says every week, they keep facing the SIDELINE PLAYERS and they are the PRIMETIME PLAYERS. O’Neil yells at a fan trying to get a picture and says “Ain’t got time to take pictures with yo kids” and they end with the millions of dollars dance.

Young catches Kingston going for a baseball slide and attempts a belly to back suplex but Kingston flips over and connects with a flying elbow for a two count. Brodus tags in and Young bolts to his corner while O’Neil blows his whistle, throws the penalty flag and requests a timeout. Brodus catches Young for a big body slam. After getting caught in the corner, Brodus whips Young into the corner and Young goes up and over and hits the floor. O’Neil checks on him while calling for another timeout and Kingston takes them out with a somersault plancha.
Kingston gets back in the ring to celebrate and Young is still calling for a timeout. Kingston chases Young but gets caught on the way in by a huge shoulder tackle from O’Neil. Kingston gets planted with the millions of dollars slam gets hit with an inverted belly to back slam. Kingston tries to make the tag but no go and O’Neil locks him up in a bear hug.

-Saturday Morning Spotlight – Justin Gabriel: Video package of the various high flying moves he’s pulled off and called by what appears to be his nickname; the “Cape Town Darewolf.”
-Don’t Try This at Home, School or Anywhere PSA from Justin Gabriel
– Justin Gabriel vs. Curt Hawkins
Hawkins’ ring gear suggests he is auditioning for a spot in Aces & Eights. Apparently, his nickname is the “Party Starter.” Hawkins does a nip up to escape a Gabriel arm ringer and starts his own “You still got it” chant and nobody cared. Gabriel hits two deep arm drags but gets tripped up while running off the ropes by Hawkins. Hawkins hyper extends both of Gabriel arms while his knee is in the small of the back.
Gabriel gets to his feet and stomps on Hawkins foot to break the hold and hits him with a dive over the top rope and on to the floor. Gabriel follows up and catches Hawkins with a spring cross body coming back into the ring. Hawkins catches Gabriel off the ropes with a michinoku driver but Gabriel quickly comes back with a belly to back suplex and a 450 splash for the 1-2-3.
Winner: Justin Gabriel
Cody Rhodes is interviewed by Natalya and talks about his moustache and his match with Sheamus, next week. Sheamus walks in and makes fun the dirt on his lip. Cody asks Natalya to vouch for how handsome he looks since her father, Jim Neidhart, had great facial hair. Natalya said it looked awful and Sheamus says thing will be hairy for Rhodes, next week. Cody tells Natalya he lied about her father’s facial hair and called him the original goat face.
Final Thoughts: Sorry for the late report. My power went out for a few seconds at time due the Blizzard in the Northeast. My DVR recordings were interrupted and had to find the show online.
Curt Hawkins needs to find a new shtick and tighten up his work or he is going to have some endeavors to examine. I know Kofi Kingston has been placed in several tag teams over the years but he and Brodus Clay might have something. Titus O’Neil was absolutely brilliant on the microphone and I hope the company will do more with him going forward.
