* The show opens with an NXT challenge. Each Rookie has 60 seconds to go around the arena and sell as much merchandise as possible. The winner gets a match against any WWE Superstar.
* Wade Barrett & Chris Jericho b. Christian & Heath Slater when Chris Jericho hit a Code Breaker on Slater then pinned him.
* Darren Young b. Michael Tarver
* David Otunga won the challenge but I'm told Justin Gabriel clearly sold the most merchandise. Otunga wins a match against a superstar of his choosing.
* Skip Sheffield b. Daniel Bryan. Sheffield was scheduled to face The Miz but he claimed he was too hurt because of the punch by Big Show last night on Raw.
Christ alive I can't believe how bad this show has gotten.
I watched the first guy do the programme challenge, saw how awful it was so skipped through the rest of them as they came on through the show. I did however catch DB's who was just giving them away and Wade Barret taking the money and leaving.
They showed three more good video packages with the pro's analysing that rookie. This week it was Bryan, Tarver & Gabriel.
I loved how everyone bar Miz for obvious reasons put over Bryan saying the guy was already a star, that made me happy.
Tarver, pretty much everyone said he looked like the first guy to be eliminated unless he pulls something out of the bag quick.
Gabriel was a mixed bag although I think it was a fair evaluation overall. Matt said that he reminded him of a young him although in truth it's clear to see he's more like Jeff but understandable why they couldn't say that. I loved how Punk said his biggest detriment was his mentor and that the only thing he could teach him was about Myspace and Twitter. Rest of the reviews were pretty much that he had all the talent in the world but needed to sharpen up on the personality side of things while Jericho said he was a one trick pony because of his flashy finisher
I enjoy that they seem to let Bryan get some offense in before ultimately losing the match, but how long can they continue doing this without killing the guy? All the fans are supposed to believe is that he's this great wrestler, the most experienced guy there yet he continually loses. How long before they just turn their back on him and decide it's pointless to support him? They just need to make the guy snap and let him get on a winning run to make people believe him again.
Final thing though, Skip's finisher was fucking sick and the best way to describe it would be a Super Stone Cold Stunner. Bryan was on Skip's back with his legs wrapped around him and Skip jumped in the air with him on his back and nailed the stunner, pretty fucking sweet.
