Next week the WWE NXT Rookies will be evaluated by the Pros based on the criteria of win/loss records, strength of opponent, work ethic and "it" factor (and: you can not vote for your own rookie).

Here are the current win-loss records of the NXT Rookies:

* Daniel Bryan - 0 wins, 5 losses
* Darren Young - 3 wins, 1 loss
* David Otunga - 3 wins, 1 loss
* Heath Slater - 4 wins, 0 losses
* Justin Gabriel - 3 wins, 1 loss
* Michael Tarver - 0 wins, 3 losses
* Skip Sheffield - 0 wins, 3 losses
* Wade Barrett - 2 wins, 2 losses



My personal opinion:


Daniel Bryan

WLR: 0
SOO: 10 (Great Khali, World Champ Chris Jericho)
WE: 10 (most matches)
ITF: 10 (most twitter followers, charismatic, great promos)
Total: 30



Wade Barrett

WLR: 5
SOO: 7
WE: 9
ITF: 9 (charismatic, good promos)
Total: 30



David Otunga

WLR: 7
SOO: 7
WE: 7 (not very good in the ring yet)
ITF: 10 (very charismatic)
Total: 31


Skip Sheffield

WLR: 0
SOO: 5 (only 3 matches at all)
WE: 4 (really bad in the ring)
ITF: 4 (at least he has a gimmick)
Total: 13



Heath Slater

WLR: 10
SOO: 8
WE: 9 (he seems to try hard)
ITF: 6 (he's really annoying)
Total: 33 (I can't believe it myself! I hate this guy!)



Justin Gabriel

WLR: 7
SOO: 8
WE: 9
ITF: 8
Total: 32 (see Heath Slater!)



Michael Tarver

WLR: 0
SOO: 5 (only three matches at all)
WE: 7 (not very good in the ring yet)
ITF: 6 (doesn't seem to have IT)
Total: 18



Darren Young

WLR: 7
SOO: 8
WE: 7 (not very good in the ring yet)
ITF: 5 (slightly above Skip)
Total: 27


Ranking:

1.Heath Slater
2.Justin Gabriel
3.David Otunga
4.Daniel Bryan and Wade Barrett
5.Darren Young
6.Michael Tarver
7.Skip Sheffield


There you have it: Skip Sheffield has to go first! Nananana nananana heyheyhey gooooodbye!

If this show wasn't a work, I'd guess Sheffield or Tarver but I have to think the first six weeks of NXT has been designed around Daniel Bryan and the Miz.

Bryan getting pinned this week sealed the deal for my theory. My prediction is the same as last week: The Miz uses Bryan's 0-5 record as "proof" that he doesn't belong and he's the first eliminated. But Bryan gets one more chance somehow and has to beat the Miz to stay in NXT.

If you're going by wins and losses purely anyway, Bryan has to be the one who goes since he's never won a match. The only reason to me to even bring wins and losses up is to further the storyline about Bryan not being WWE-worthy.

Have they even clarified what the rules of the "competition" are? Do people get "eliminated" Tough Enough style? It seems like they change it every week.

Yeah, they said this week that somebody would be eliminated after next week's vote. This is the first week they explained the criteria, as far as I know. They really seem to be making this up as they go along. If we assume that eliminations keep going this way, once every six weeks, that would lead to 42 total weeks of programming. What happens in the last 10 weeks? Do they just start a new group right away if the ratings stay successful? Or does it get an actual Season Finale and then go away for two and a half months? And what do they do once they're down to 3, then 2 finalists? Have them wrestle regular superstars? They'd have six weeks at least of that, but having them wrestle the regular WWE guys on a weekly basis would kind of destroy the novelty of them popping up on Raw or Smackdown once they won.

I don't understand what good it does to have TWO guys with losing streaks. The angle seems to be working for Bryan, and I'm confident that they'll turn things around for him eventually. But Tarver? It almost feels like his whole purpose in being there is to have an obvious guy to get rid of. I continue to pity the guy.

Pretty sure it'll be one a week going from here on out. They're not going to do six weeks between eliminations - this initial period was to establish the show and the new guys before making a decision.

I could see Bryan challenging the Miz for the U.S. title (and winning) as payoff and reason enough for him to stay (on NXT and/or in WWE)!?

As far as the future proceedings are concerned: I think I read somewhere, that there are supposed to be three seasons of NXT per year, which means one season would last approx. four months?

I dunno, I think it'd be smart to reduce the amount of time before another elimination so that it doesn't get stale, but every week? If the criteria stays the same, how much can someone's win/loss record and difficulty of opponents change in a week's span?

They've already established win/loss records, so it would just be topping them up. And if Bryan managed to win a big match next week against, say, The Big Show, that one win would do a lot to counter his losses. This is also probably why there's the other more nebulous judging categories.

At first I was all about Heath Slater getting eliminated (even with his 4-0 record) but unfortunately, I will have to change my opinion because Tarver has shown nothing. No in-ring work really and has done nothing with his "1.9" gimmick.

I wonder if the WWE figures Daniel Bryan is safe even with his 0-5 mark. I guess if the fans really like him, he doesn't need the W's.

I am sticking with Wade Barrett but of all the people with a winning record thus far, Justin Gabriel is the better person, which includes being ahead of David Otunga (a personal fav from Vince McMahon), definitely better than Heath Slater, and in plain terms is just good.

Skip Sheffield in my opinion has the worst gimmick but last week, he had a pretty good match against Wade Barrett which is better than Tarver has done thus far.

I will go with Tarver the first to go followed by Skip Sheffield.

I guess this is more the writers' fault than Tarver's, but it really does beg the question: why has a man who claims to be able to knock dudes out in 1.9 seconds, never once attempted to actually do so?

Of the rookies, Tarver has really shown the least, and he has no wins. He should be the first to go. I agree with the assessment on Skip Sheffield - at least he has a gimmick (albeit pretty terrible) and I can see him as a comedy act in the future.

You guys are right. Maybe I gave Tarver too many points. And I made a mistake: I gave Skip only 5 points for SOO, because he only has had three matches at all. The same has to go for Tarver! Therefore his total points are only 18! But still, Skip has to go first!

I can't help it; I like Skip Sheffield. I think he's a likable dummy, and for a big guy I don't think he's terrible in the ring. Of course, it helps that they were smart enough to pair him with Regal, a natural mismatch that I find consistently entertaining.

I have begged both Lise and Kim (who are the only women I know, apparently) to watch and recap this show, but at this stage I'm not even sure I've gotten either to commit to just WATCH, let alone say two words about it. (Note to self:
