they say Kenny does things best, but to me he has no personality. he would get lost in the shuffle ala K-Kwick. but then again, last year they picked Maven over Chris ( who like Jake, has the look of a WWF wrestler.) speaking of Maven, they announce him at 223, why is he not part of the CW div??? I have the same problem with Pete, he's just bland. I like Anni but I think that she might look too old, as the E wants its new women to all look younger.amd she still lacks the agressive attitude that she needs to get over. Looks like Jackie really jacked up her knee, I thought she was the one.

Same here, they way they made it sound and look, it seemed like Jackie had a WWE contact waiting for her. She would be an awesome addition too, she seemed to have the same grit and energy that Trish does. Hopefully she didn't bust that knee for good. Annie would still be cool though, but only as some kind of Amazon monster who squashes everybody.
Is it possible that Hawk turns up in some capacity in the WWE in the future? It seems he was too big a part of that show not to have some kind of job with them, kind of like how all the old Real World stars still hang around MTV.

Once Matt (The 6'10" guy) injured his knee and was eliminated, he came back after healing up and particpated in a training camp with 10 other people, and got a WWE Developmental Deal. He's currently being held from going to the developmental territories until TE2 finishes its run.
If Jackie was eliminated due to her knee (like they want us to believe), I would think she also would be invited to participate in the camp.
The two things Jake has most going for him are his physique, and his conditioning. Since none of the people left have the charisma that pushed Maven over Josh & Chris, he might be the one that pulls it out.
Jackie & Jake are my pics. Linda's a close runner-up, tho.
I'd bet a week's pay on Jake. He's got no personality, but he's got the look. They're just trying to build up Kenny to make it look close. But Hawk was Jake's only real competition left. Which sucks, because shark-boy is horrible on the mic.
Jackie's got the women's side locked up, provided that her "injury" is being exaggerated to keep us watching till next week. Which I think it is.
It was a shame to see Hawk go. He was interesting and made it competitive. You could tell that Big and Al were trying to talk him out of it.
I don't see how Hawk was Jake's biggest competition...the trainers are always getting on Hawk for being sloppy as shit. Hawk was the next to go anyways. Could you imagine Snow telling Hawk, "I'm sorry, you're cut." The reaction would be priceless.
I guess Jackie breaks something on next week's episode, so if she's gone, it looks like Anni has it. Hey, BTW, where's Nidia??? (lol) Should have picked Taylor...
On the guys side, you have to go with Jake...his only real competition is Kenny, but we'll have to see how things develop next week...it will be a crucial turning point.
"Big Daddy Cool, ha, more like BIG DADDY BITCH."
"Oh my gosh...it can't be...Goldberg...is...NEW BLOOD!"
I heard Al Snow being interviewed on Piledriver last week. He really made a point of talking about how we haven't seen much of Kenny yet, but that he was really good. I guess Al was working the smarks right before the show started to push Kenny in a big way.
I'm still going with Jake and Anni.
Had Hawk stayed, I think he would have lasted till the end. I really think he was right when he said the trainers got on his case because they saw something in him. I agree, they were definitely not wanting him to leave.
It’s the return to NXT for one night only of Maryse’s very good friend, the voice of WWE, Michael Cole. Grisham: “This should be a fun night”. NXT is where Cole really got his start, where the real Michael Cole came on the scene. What, no Regal?
