Jim Ross updated the blog section of JRsbarbq.com. Here are a few highlights.Ross on the new NXT: "The rebranding of NXT at Full Sail University on Thursday night was exciting. It's great to be provided the opportunity to help with any new, WWE venture especially one that will help facilitate young talents the opportunity to move to the main WWE roster perhaps a little faster.Yours truly broadcast all four programs working with William Regal, Bryon Saxton and Chris Russo in various incarnations. Several young talents stood out Thursday night but arguably the best match of the night was Tyson Kidd vs. Michael McGillicutty that was recorded early in the evening. This match was outstanding in my view and was one of the best bouts that I've seen on any WWE TV show in the past several weeks."
WWE has recently removed all the upcoming listings and links for WWE NXT on their website.It appears the rebranded version of the series, featuring mostly WWE developmental talents, will not be made available online officially by the company.
As previously reported, at the NXT tapings on Thursday night at Full Sail University was the start of the "Gold Rush Tournament" to crowned the first ever NXT Champion.The eight entrants in the tournament are:-Bo Dallas-Richie Steamboat-Leo Kruger-Jinder Mahal-Seth Rollins-Drew McIntyre-Michael McGillicutty-Justin Gabriel
Please, if you say ‘Because it’s your destiny’, I swear to jeebus I’m going to start drinking.
