Notes About The Show:
Ashley Valence was the ring announcer for the evening.
Matt Martlaro & Abraham Washington acted as the TV announcers until the â€œtakeover by Ryan & Saxtonâ€.
Idol Stevens is now using the ring name Damian Sandow.
Orlando Colon continues to maintain two identities in FCW… Once again, he removed the mask of â€œEpicoâ€ by working as Tito Colon in an excellent, well paced match with Jinder Mahal.
Xavier Woods, the former Consequences Creed, traded his trademark â€œfroâ€ in for the cornrow look on this eveningâ€™s event. Oddly, Eli Cottonwood also had his hair in cornrows.
The fatal four way match was a strong representation of the next level of future stars as all have strong star potential and have all earned their way to this point. Lots of impressive highspots by all four.
The Main Event was a hard fought tribute to the old with brawling all over the FCW Arena Huskyâ€™s attire was reminiscent of the old â€œBunkhouse Matchâ€ look of years ago. You could see so much of his family (like Blackjack Mulligan and Barry Windham) and influences (Dusty Rhodes) not only in his appearance, but in the way he carried himself. Percy had, what I consider to be, his strongest match to date in FCW. Percyâ€™s raw athleticism and Huskyâ€™s hard work ethic and their collective showmanship made this one of the more memorable matches in the FCW Arena.
Roster talent noticeably absent from the show included Alex Riley, Bo Rotundo, Brad Maddox, Brett DiBiase (injured), Buck Dixon, Cable Jones, Caylee Turner (injured), Derrick Bateman, Drake Brewer (injured), Fahd Rakman, Johnny Curtis, and Michael McGillicutty.
It was announced that a special guest at next weekâ€™s TV taping will be WWE Hall Of Famer Howard Finkel.
