Notes About The Show:
The FCW Arena was a bit cramped this week, as they had a 2nd ring set up along one side of the existing ring. This is because the WWE is holding a weekend long clinic as they continue to scout for the superstars of tomorrow.
Jamie Keyes &
Ashley Valence traded ring announcer duties throughout the evening.
The TV announcing tandem was Byron Saxton & Abraham Washington.
This was the 8th consecutive sellout of the FCW Arena as they continue a blockbuster Summer.
Austin Watson, formerly TNA’s Consequences Creed, debuted using his real name (which I’m certain wont last long) with the unrelated Percy Watson as his tag team partner. Austin’s style should fit in well with the WWE as he already showed a lot of in-ring charisma in his debut.
Here’s a brief rundown of the FCW newcomers introduced in Naomi’s interview segment:
Rhys Ali – New Zealand’s Reon Mahima comes to FCW where he worked using his real name.
Shane Godwin – West Virginia’s Shane Canterbury is the son of Mark Canterbury, best known as former WWE tag champ Henry O. Godwin.
Phil Friedman – Is a former IFL MMA fighter turned wrestler. He has a classic wrestler look that reminds me of the legendary Joe LeDuc.
Fady The Arabian Bull – Hailing from Patterson, NJ and having Syrian heritage, Fady was a main eventer for New Jersey’s IWF.
Celeste – One of the newest divas signed by the WWE. Celeste was recruited out of Texas.
