I'm setting this up so we can talk about the new WWE show that'll be re-placing ECW in 2 week's time, WWE NXT
I think this'll be a very interesting show that should (hopefully) bring in some viewers.
From waltersobchek in the "ECW could be going??" thread:
From Jolt in the "ECW could be going??" thread:
I'm interesting in getting a look at Joe Henning....
Im interested in seeing Hennig too, He must be pretty good, with being a 3rd generation wrestler and all. The only thing is i think he's in his early 30's, and doesnt really have his fathers "look" per se
No not exactly Mr. Perfect but he tags with DiBiase as the prodigal sons gimmick afaik.
Great way of exposing the new talent.
Having a father a wrestler is no guarantee though. Look at David Flair.
Yeah very true..
The following pairings for the WWE NXT show were announced on the final ECW on SyFy show this evening…
* Chris Jericho will be mentoring Wade Barrett
* Matt Hardy will be mentoring Justin Gabriel
* MVP will be mentoring Skip Sheffield
* Carlito will be mentoring Michael Tarver
* The Miz will be mentoring Daniel Bryan
* Christian will be mentoring Heath Slater
* CM Punk will be mentoring Darren Young
* R-Truth will be mentoring David Otunga
As previously reported, the show will feature teams of eight (4 rookies and 4 coaches per team) and be split by who are the heels and who are the faces. So the teams would be…
* Matt Hardy
* Justin Gabriel
* Skip Sheffield
* Heath Slater
* David Otunga
* Chris Jericho
* Wade Barrett
* Michael Tarver
* The Miz
* Daniel Bryan
* CM Punk
* Darren Young
Cant believe they didnt go for Jericho/Danielson that would have been unreal
I resume Daniel Bryan is actually Bryan Danielson? If so WTF is he doing on this show?
The Miz? REALLY?
Vince McMahon hates us.
The Miz is.... Deadly . I don't see how you can hate The Miz, except for him being a good heel, he is to quote him Awesome.
Wonder if Joe Hennig will just be bumped straight up to the main roster
I kind of get the impression they've held some wrestlers back, for the next round of 8 development guys, kinda of a why put all our eggs in one basket sort of thing..
Yes it is
Danielson being "mentored" by The Miz is an insult to the entire industry of professional wrestling. Of course, it may be done from the charisma point of view, something The Miz has in abundance.
Should be an interesting show. I am just wondering how much of it will be worked?
You answered it. I'm sure the WWE know he's "THE BEST IN THE WORLD" to all on the internet. He just needs to be able to cut better promos to make any waves in the WWE.
