WWE is very aggressively keeping full length episodes of this show off of YouTube, so we're back to DailyMotion and their "annoying you with an ad every 5 minutes" setup. Sorry, but it's better than nothin'.
TONIGHT'S MAIN EVENT: SETH ROLLINS vs. DREW McINTYRE in a Gold Rush Tournament Quarterfinal RICHIE STEAMBOAT vs. LEO KRUGER in a Gold Rush Tournament Quarterfinal BIG E LANGSTON debuts in action against ADAM MERCER AUDREY MARIE vs. RAQUEL DIAZ HUNICO y CAMACHO in action against MIKE DALTON & JASON JORDAN All this PLUS: BRADLEY PIERCE barely talks to PAIGE
The Gold Rush Tournament, so named by interim NXT Commissioner DUSTY RHODES, will determine the first NXT Champion!
Here are the eight men involved: Richie Steamboat Bo Dallas Leo Kruger Seth Rollins Michael McGillicutty Drew McIntyre Jinder Mahal Justin Gabriel
And here's the brackets:
And HERE'S a very dimly lit shot of the belt they're fighting for:
That must have been some slap on the ass Diaz gave Audrey Marie. She grabbed her buttocks and then meekly allowed herself to be bent over and Gory Bombed. If Titus O'Neil had done it, whatever happened next would have been truly unstoppable.
I'm really liking Raquel's character development but she's got a looong way to go in the ring. I wasn't too impressed with Audrie's wrestling earlier in the year but she's been improving lately. Paige continues to bring the excellence. Hoping Natalie and Tenille get on NXT soon as they are great ( Natalie's an IRL friend of mine but I'm not just saying she should be on TV because of it, she really is deserving of the time)
Just for the hell of it, here is how Rumble winners have faired at Mania: Jim Duggan: No title shot John Studd: No title shot Hulk Hogan: Lost to Ultimate Warrior Hulk Hogan: Defeated Sgt. Slaughter Ric Flair: Lost to Randy Savage Yokozuna:
