Maxine’s vicious road to Redemption
Maxine is back, and apparently she’s a woman on an important mission. But what exactly does this vengeful, fiery former NXT Rookie Diva from Season 3 have in mind for WWE NXT Redemption?
During week 24 of competition, Maxine made a shocking return to Tuesday nights, viciously attacking a vulnerable A.J. from behind moments after A.J.’s beau, Hornswoggle, and Titus O’Neil were taunted out of the ring by Derrick Bateman. Following the attack, Bateman revealed that Maxine was his new girlfriend and “soulmate.”
A confident Maxine proclaimed to the WWE Universe that Hornswoggle couldn’t handle "a real woman” like her, so he settled for “something less, like A.J.” She then threatened to cause even more problems on WWE NXT, stating she and Bateman were “just getting started.”
The former NXT Rookie Diva certainly wasn’t lying. A week later, she dominated A.J. in singles competition, and while Bateman cruelly shoved Hornswoggle down onto the ringside floor, Maxine capitalized on her distracted opponent. rolling her up for the victory. Their celebration was cut short when Hornswoggle’s NXT Rookie, O’Neil, angrily stormed into the ring, but NXT’s wicked new couple didn’t seem fazed. On the contrary - they were pleased with themselves.
Maxine has quickly made her presence known on WWE NXT Redemption, and so far she’s helped her boyfriend, Bateman, earn a victory over archrival O’Neil. But for how long will her antics be tolerated? Sooner or later, a WWE official has to notice she’s interfering in matches to help Bateman advance in the competition. Will it eventually affect the couple’s game plan? And where has Bateman's WWE Pro, Daniel Bryan, been throughout all of this?
When she’s not trying to help Bateman become WWE’s next breakout star, what more can Maxine possibly do to torment A.J.? Make fun of her green Skittles and candy ring exchange with Hornswoggle? Or maybe she'll pick on the diminutive size of A.J’s boyfriend? The spunky Diva isn’t one to back down from a challenge, and it’s only a matter of time before she takes the fight back to her wicked adversary. For the moment, though, the advantage is all Maxine's.
Watch this emotional tale of love and Redemption continue on WWE NXT at 10 ET/7 PT, only on NXT.WWE.COM.
