Oh
god
yes

NXT5 is NXT: r5demption. Six returning NXT rookies will compete for a prestigious ... spot on NXT season 6.

Redeem Dreamers

DARREN YOUNG
Season: 1
Pro: Chavo Guerrero
Notes: Darren Young main evented SummerSlam and has beaten real wrestlers on Superstars. Yet he finds himself right back where he started.
Potential redemption: drink a soft drink, beat the black Miz at Black Wrestlemania, form Superstars version of Nexus

TITUS O'NEIL
Season: 2
Pro: Hornswoggle
Notes: He hasn't said it yet. But he will.
Potential redemption: do the dog bark (check), don't trip on the keg carry (check), sell MVP's finisher, MIAW

LUCKY CANNON
Season: 2
Pro: Tyson Kidd
Notes: "Oh, he's a bad guy now." - Michael Cole on Lucky's abrupt random heel turn during the finale of season 2. Well, he's a bad guy now. And he wears a robe. And he won't participate in the challenges because he's a bad guy now. Also the robe.
Potential redemption: already ahead of McGillicutty, Husky, Riley, and Kaval, so. he's good.


JACOB NOVAK
Season: 4
Pro: JTG
Notes: The rookie so charismatic that his love triangle angle was dropped, his pro fired him, and he was the first one eliminated. Is back!
Potential redemption: do anything, punch Dolph Ziggler on the ramp

BYRON SAXTON
Season: 4
Pro: Yoshi Tatsu
Notes: The first time Saxton was over was when he guessed too high on WWEshop Price Is Right ... Will continue to call Matt Striker "Matthew."
Potential redemption: bring back Abraham Washington Show, punch Dolph Ziggler on the ramp

CONOR O'BRIEN
Season: 4
Pro: Vladimir Kozlov
Notes: Heyyyyyyyyyy. Is no longer a rat but rather a man with a difficult upbringing and true heart.
Potential redemption: avenge loss to Ricardo Rodriguez, take the cheese


It's not the first six I would've picked, but it is two of my faves in Conor and Titus. Ideally this would've been NXT all-stars and had Bateman, Tarver, and Percy Watson. And a true dream season would've included some of the girls, since that was the apex. Half of this cast is the same bottom half of the cast we just saw on season 4. But oh well, this still rules.

The pros are hilariously bottom rung. I was legit bummed that Titus wasn't reunited with Ryder.

Not only have we lost Cole, but we've now lost Josh. There is something inauthentically non-NXT about that. The hosts are now Todd Grisham and William Regal.

Maryse is hosting the show and Yoshi Tatsu is courting her. Splendid.

Completely. They must've looked around to see who hadn't been stuck on this show yet. Which means they forgot David Hart Smith existed? Or Hornswaggle was just funnier to them? I like to imagine there was a coin toss to determine if Darren Young would be a rookie or a pro (with Percy as his pro.)

Someone needs to turn up Regal's microphone or turn down his headset to get him to be a bit louder.

Lucky Cannon has thrown his heart in being a generic bad guy. I look forward to him telling people in the front row that they suck.

Regal raving about Darren Young made me feel bad Superstars isn't on here. Clearly missed something.

If I were Lucky Cannon, I'd rather hook up with Maryse than win NXT too.

Was tonight a continuation of the Hornswaggle vs Tyson Kidd angle from the Rumble?

Will it be that the loser of the feud get reduced to mini status, like that match in Lucha coming up?

I wish they had added Maxine or Aksana.

Couldn't tell if Regal was face or heel. He seemed complimentary to some of the guys, but then buried Hornswoggle.

and, for your COMIX fans, no one tell Billy The Turtle about Maryse's outfits.

What the...? How is this even going to work? Hornswoggle doesn't speak ENGLISH!

So the prize for going through all the humiliation and silliness of NXT for another season? Getting to do it all for a THIRD season!

I can't think of a single reason that this show exists anymore, other than to hopefully make a star commentator out of Regal.

Grisham called him 'a bearded child' and Regal scoffed with disdain.

Regal also declared Finlay the greatest of all time, adding "from where I'm from, at least" probably at the behest of someone in his headset.

Grisham's "What is this, an International House of Pancakes?" line was quote of the night. He's actually improved a lot since coming to NXT. I also enjoyed them bagging on JTG. Since both of them are certified saltine it didn't come off as racist as much as clueless.

Lucky had a point, he dominated the challenges and still got booted. Why bother. Bryan, Barret, and Brodus (alliteration ahoy) threw a challenge or two and things worked out fine. Of course, Mr. Cannon doesn't seem to be in the same tier as them so this may bite him in the ass.

Two out of the last three Kings of the Ring are commentators now. Did they (and is Sheamus in the process of) Billy Gunn the honor?

OH NO! Where is Watson? I'd guess Bateman's going right to Raw or SmackDown but no Percy makes me sad.

Regal on commentary? Not a bad idea, sunshine...but really? NXT5? Three of the Pros don't even "speak English"? And there's going to be a sixth season?? Won't it be redundant with Tough Enough debuting in a few weeks?

Was there no Matt Striker? Speaking of people falling quickly down the ladder...

Titus O'Neil's girlfriend Aloisia will surely be along soon to stand next to Hornswoggle and make everyone chortle at how tiny he is.

Some of those responsible for the train wreck Season 2 Finale are here, and that watershed moment led NXT down the path of greatness we saw in Seasons 3/4 (but especially THREE).

Regal being a commentator could serve a dual role; he'd be able to train other wrestlers and commentate.

Watson was been doing dark matches lately, so he's probably on his way to the main roster soon and wouldn't need to be on the show.

At this point, the only logical answer is that someone on this board is producing the show. I'm leaning towards Nhoj Aloiuqro.

I will actually try to watch this at some point today, if just to show support for Titus and to keep the glorious NXT thread train alive. Some thoughts before watching:

-Titus should have been given the Bellas as his pros. Partly because he's the nicest person in the history of wrestling and they are the best heels in the company right now, but mostly because his catchphrase could have morphed into "Make it a twin!"

-Darren Young's pro should be Darren Young. And he'd have to run from the ring up to the stage to grade himself every time.

-Early prediction for first person to be cut: Somehow, it will be Tyson Kidd.

Something so obvious, yet so awesome.

Based on most of the rookies and pros I suppose we could call this "NXT: Future Endeavored".

They have Maryse, Yoshi, Vladmir and Hornswoggle, and then Todd and Regal both complained about not understanding a word JTG said. The show is (remains!) an attempt to entertain themselves.

"Shi"? I thought Brie Bella was the one with the penis.

When in doubt, consult urban dictionary. Though in this case, the results won't be nearly as stomach wrenching as in many urban dictionary consultations.
