We’re in Albany, NY for the Season Two Finale of a show I’m so invested in that it took me three weeks to summon the energy to type about it!
The penultimate episode of Season Two. I thought this was going to be the last episode because it’s down to three remaining Rookies but instead we’ve got another week of uhhh….I don’t know.
Tonight it’s a double elimination as WWE continues to pour caustic soda down the NXT drain. But never mind that, check out Percy Watson’s new shirt:
It’s the one with the punching machine you see in late night takeaways. There was a bit before the show with Michael Cole trying it out but he’s 100% in Pro-Miz heel mode so let’s make like blackface Piper and skip it.
We’re in Laredo, Texas for the post-Eli Cottonwood era. It’s only been a week and I already miss the blithering idiot. As people have explained, he made an appearance in the original FCW version of The Wyatt Family so thanks for letting me know he had One Last Bungle.
We’re in Corpus Christi, home of *googles* uhhh birds. Oh and also another elimination.
It’s the obstacle course episode, so we get clips of Matt Striker doing it earlier today. The balance bars and push-ups weren’t challenging for him as not talking for forty seconds.
Cole opens the show with “There’s a feeling of impending disaster tonight” to really get the cat excited.
One week to go before the first Pro Poll. (You gotta pay the Pro Poll, to get that Rookie’s Soul…)
Nexus re-appeared on Monday Night Raw, minus one member.
I actually managed to find a connecting thread in mid-column for this one! Go me!
The disappointments post, along with the Barrett/Gabriel match the other night got me thinking…
What if Nexus reformed, say, next week on RAW? Cena or Sheamus (or anybody really) would be cutting some standard promo about their current feud and all of a sudden, Barrett, Otunga, Slater, Gabriel, Young, Ryback and Daniel Bryan all come out, in their current gimmicks more or less, and just wreck shop. Is this feasible? If you were booking, what are the pros and cons of doing it? If so, when would be the right time to pull the trigger?
