It was a really good show, I don't want to come across bitter in my post with it, but it kind of got to me how only 6 of the pro's were there. I can't work out why the hell Carlito wasn't there, it's not like he does anything other then Superstars, Truth has more of a justification since he is a RAW guy, but even then, Regal was there and so was Jericho. Even if injuries were an excuse, it's not like they had to do anything, they just sat on a chair at the top of the ramp.
Anyway the actual show was pretty good, glad to see Slater was ahead of Gabriel, even if I hate both of them, I just find Gabriel has zero personality, whereas Slater can put on a promo it's just a shame that he sounds like a goon.
The Bryan promo was really good, Tarver impressed me as well. I think those two, Barrett and Otunga are the best from this show who could actually go somewhere.
I feel like the interviews Matt Striker does at the start of the show are a bit of a dud at times, but they are nothing on those awful copetitions. Glad to see they have gone.
In general NXT has found it's rhythm again as others have said. It's good that the competition will end fairly soon, I'll be interested to see what they are going to do when the NXT competition has finished, both with the show and the superstars.
