I got this.
There was an arcade punching bag set up - Alex Riley beat out Michael McGillicutty's 863 with his score of 896. Why do I still remember these numbers? Josh Mathews got just over 800 and Cole (dressed in "funny outfit" and after engaging in a prolonged warmup complete with powder toss) got....760-something. Harris whiffed and Kaval tried to kick instead of punch, so Cole easily beat both of them. I don't remember what Watson and Cannon did. For his victory, A-Ri gets highlights on RAW - no, wait. His hair will probably stay the same but he WILL get a segment on RAW.
There was another three on three match. Kaval pinned McGillicutty for a victory for his team (with Watson and Cannon).
After Morrison refused to beg Miz to join "Team WWE" for the big SummerSlam main event, they had a match instead. Miz pinned Morrison with the SCF.
Some pay-per-view was hyped and some show was Rebounded.
The new poll: 1. Kaval 2. Michael McGillicutty 3. "Showtime" Percy Watson 4. Husky Harris 5. Alex Riley 6. Lucky Cannon
Cannon gave another uninteresting speech where the most exciting thing he did was FLIP OUT ironically during the part where he said he wasn't gonna flip out. (He DID get a good "Charlie - I mean Eddie Murphy" dig at Watson, but it's not like we hadn't heard that one before.)
It has been announced that there's only three weeks left in this cycle (putting the finale 8/31) and next week, there will be a DOUBLE ELIMINATION!
VOTING IS NOW OPEN - PLEASE TO ATTACH YOUR RESPONSE AFTER DIVERTING TO THE NXT ROOKIE POLL (poll.wwe.com)
WHO WILL BE WWE'S NEXT BREAKOUT STAR?
Alex Riley Husky Harris Kaval Michael McGillicutty "Showtime" Percy Watson

John Morrison sure screwed up. All he had to do was beg The Miz to join Cena's team - and Miz's definition of "beg" is very loose to say the least - but no, instead he calls out Miz to a match to prove they don't need him. And then he loses! Thereby PROVING Cena's team DOES need Miz. Pride goeth before the fall, Shaman.
I forget whose weak ass punch it was but Mathews got off a great line: "Has he ever punched anyone in his life?!" WHAT? Fake pro wrestlers don't know how to throw a real punch?
I would love for this LayCool/Kaval alliance to continue post NXT - which ends in THREE WEEKS all of a sudden. I guess they want to squeeze in a 6 week or so season 3 of NXT before Smackdown arrives on Syfy.

Lucky pulls a Darren Young and refuses to heel with it when the crowd hates his emotional farewell.
Good match between the erstwhile longest reigning tag team champions in recent WWE history, be jealous, but Morrison runs his record against Miz to 0-a few. Wait, maybe he beat him on Raw right before Wrestlemania. But he lost at Bragging Rights, Survivor Series, Wrestlemania, and NXT. That's some Husky & Kaval stuff right there. But it worked with Husky! Or all the Pros just moved him up to compensate and Riley suffered because of it.

If WWE had some long-term thinking, a 'Morrison can't beat Miz' storyline could've had some potential down the road. Oh well.

The 'funny outfit' was a Miz Shirt, replica WWE Belt, CeNation head and armband and John Morrison glasses. Michael Cole has been getting worse and worse each week with his overselling of his man-crush on The Miz. Going as far as claiming that Cena and Bret Hart actually did beg for The Miz to join the team. And each week that he compares The Miz a different 'legendary' coach the more I want to bash his head in. I do like that Josh pointed out a few weeks ago the problems that Miz and Daniel Bryan had (without mention Bryan by name.) Also claiming Miz is the best based solely on the fact that he's the US Champion and MITB winner, shouldn't that make Kane better? He won the MITB and then WON the World Heavyweight Title.

I'm fairly certain that was Percy Watson's punch that Josh commented on.
Kaval continues to impress me and hence I voted for him, I see the top 3 being Kaval, Michael McG and Husky Harris. Percy will be the first elimnated next week, followed by 'A-Ri' (man that's an annoying nickname).

I hate Michael Cole so much for his over-shilling of the Miz. Even JR at his worst was never this much of a shill for Austin.
Don't remind me of the JR/Austin "friendship" back in the day. That was such a stupid idea, only topped by the Earl Hebner/Austin "friendship". Damnit, Austin shouldn't have had any friends at all .. EVER! And there also shouldn't have been a Stone Cold University as well. They totally ruined the Stone Coldness of Steve Austin with stuff like that.
But back to NXT: I voted for Kaval, because he should at least end up as number 2 or 3. He once again impressed last night during his match and I'm glad he finally got another win. Nonetheless, he sure as hell sucked during that punching bag challenge thing, but what can you say? Maybe he isn't a ninja after all?

Percy Watson has started to grow on me as far as his in ring ability. Personality/character wise, I would still prefer that he go die in a fire, and I won't forgive him for taking advantage of Zach Ryder while the man had walking pneumonia.
My vote, as it has from practically day one, goes to Husky Harris. I still see far more potential in him than anyone else.
Kaval is still my #2. I'm enjoying Riley as the beatdown recipient during the six man tag matches. I assume someone will kick his ass on Raw next week. (I'm going to predict Miz walks out of Team WWE and then inserts Riley into his match on Raw the next night.)
McGillicutty will be a solid midcarder. Lucky Cannon has some hops. A quarter of a century ago, he would have been the perfect tag team partner for Greg Gagne.
I have to hand it to John Morrison. After actually landing on his opponent with Starship Pain on Raw, he comes back on NXT and manages to damn near whiff the standing Shooting Star Press. They really need to bring Jackie Gayda back to properly sell Morrison's offense.
By the way, the punchbag scores were: Michael McG - 863 Kaval - 297 (Kicked instead of punching) Watson - 716 Cannon - 744 Harris - 380 (whiffed) A-Ri - 896
So Josh Matthews throws a harder punch than three of the six men considered to have the most potential to be the next WWE breakout star? I hope they use that as reason when they eliminate the god-forsaken Watson next week. (You see I gave Kaval a pass on that one because he's my favorite.)
