I have a confession to make; I love NXT Season 2.
It’s my favorite. There are so many great things about it. During Season 2, It’s where Miz and Riley were first paired up. We heard an epic mustache promo from Morrison’s rookie, Eli Cottonwood. Miz and Morrison not only fought each other, but also fought side-by-side. We got the Kaval – LayCool silliness and Rhodes and Harris creating chaos. Plus, we heard some fun, not obnoxious, snarkiness from Striker, Cole, and Matthews. My only complaint is that my pick (Riley) didn’t win it all.
I also have to admit that I never really understood why Morrison was paired with Cottonwood and not someone like Kane. Maybe it was to help him come out of his shell and show some personality, two things JoMo has no problem doing. But sadly, I don’t think they ever really gelled, like some of the other pairings did.
This week’s match comes from the first episode (June 8, 2010) of Season 2. In fact, it was the very first match of the season. Morrison and Cottonwood faced another pro and rookie team in Zack Ryder and Titus O’Neil. The night before, JoMo and Truth took on Miz and Ryder on the Viewer’s Choice Raw, so it was a rematch of sorts.
It’s not the most stunning or amazing tag team match, but it’s fun. It’s the kind of match that gets forgotten by most fans. One goal of my column is to remind other fans of matches like this. Another is to show different snapshots (pun not really intended) of JoMo’s career.
My favorite part of the match is what happens afterwards. Striker asks the other pros what they think. Of course, Striker chooses an anxious-looking Miz. What Miz says about the pair not being entertaining and failing is hilarious. Equally funny is JoMo no selling it and telling Cottonwood not to listen to him.
This week enjoy this NXT tag match from 2010. If you have any match/segment suggestions you would like to see profiled here, please email or tweet me. I always welcome idea (and feedback) from other Mofos and Jomosapiens.
