NXT Season 2 8/10By Jason · · Leave a Comment
We start with an earlier today segment. Some sort of boxing challenge will be today’s challenge. Striker explains the rules and then Michael Cole and Josh Matthews try it out. Cole looks like an idiot, wearing a Miz shirt and Cena head and armbands with a toy belt.
We get the rookies and pros coming out together. Kaval actually seems to enjoy Laycool giving him a kiss on each cheek. No Mark Henry with Lucky Cannon.
Three weeks till the season finale. Is that counting this week or not?
The winner of the Power of the Punch challenge gets an individual appearence on raw.
Michael McGillicutty gets an 863. Kaval uses kick and gets DQ’ed. 716 by Percy Watson. 744 for Cannon but nearly hurts himself. Harris nearly misses and gets a low score. Alex Riley gets the win.
He says Miz may be a Reality TV star but he is a star in reality.
After the commercial Miz gets in Morrison’s face about Team WWE needing Miz. Morrison refuses to say that they need Miz. Morrison wants a match to show why they don’t need Miz.

Cannon and Harris start. Rollup by Cannon and an armbar. Kaval in with a kick. Watson in with an armbar and a fireman’s carry.
Flying forearm by Harris. Riley in. Works an armbar. Watson with a running single leg dropkick sends Riley over the ropes. Kmocks Riley silly really.

Striker says it’s time for the Pro’s Poll.
So apparently we’re only getting two matches tonight, but both should get plenty of time.
We get a clip of some of Nexus’ actions since their debut.
Okay, so the Pro’s Poll will wait till the end.

Time for the elimination. Striker asks the rookies. McGillicutty picks Lucky Cannon. Kaval agrees. Watson thinks everyone has done a great job, but Alex Riley talks to much. Cannon says everyone should but him, due to his effort. Harris says Cannon. Riley wishes Striker would because of his stupid questions, but McGillicutty may as well go home since Riley says he will win.
Kaval is number 1. McGillicutty is number2. Watson is 3. Husky Harris jumps to 4. Cannon and Riley step up.
Alex Riley is 5. Cannon is eliminated.
Cannon says he’s not going to flip out, but he wants to know if the WWE Universe has had as much fun as he had. He runs down the other guys a bit and says this isn’t the last people have seen of him. He shakes everyone’s hand and walks away.
Riley says he will not change who he is. He will win this contest and will be a future WWE champion.
Striker says that next week we will have a double elimination.
Laycool is celebrating with Kaval.
