Thanks to Katelyn Wilder, Nathan Davis, Adam Marsden & www.ProWrestling.net for the following report …
WWE NXT Taping
A video of Tribute to the Troops: Iraq 2009 was shown while the stage crew setup the ring for NXT. NXT began as Josh Matthews and Michael Cole came to the announce table. Nathan wrote, "If you want to know how close I am, just look for my friend’s ‘Larry, wish you were here sign’ behind the announce table."
Cole and Matthews begin the show as Striker runs through the obstacle course for later on in the show.
MVP was in the ring for the VIP lounge setup as Percy Watson came to the ring. They talked about respect. Striker came to the ring and asked Percy why he should be No. 1 in the poll.
Cody Rhodes and Husky Harris come out next to answer the same question. I couldn’t hear the answer due to a lot of "You Suck!" chants. Striker announced that a match between the two teams would be next.
The pros are at the top of the stage.
Continued on page two …
1. Cody Rhodes and Husky Harris defeated MVP and Percy Watson. Harris got the pin for his team.
Striker came to the ring to give Lucky Cannon and Alex Riley the same question as everyone else. To sum up what Lucky Cannon said, "I’m not going to waste your time…. Thank you." Riley cut a great promo followed by the Miz. Those two are great on the mic.
A recap was shown before the match of Mark Henry’s loss to Wade Barrett on Monday Raw.
2. Alex Riley (w/Miz) defeated Lucky Cannon. Mark Henry was not in Cannon’s corner. Lucky Cannon took the early advantage. He threw Riley to the ropes and clotheslined him. He went to the top rope and dove off only for Riley to move out of the way.
Riley took the advantage on Cannon by putting him on his shoulders and then giving him a neckbreaker for the pinfall. After Riley got the win, Miz hit Cannon with the Skull Crushing Finale on the Money in the Bank briefcase.
Continued on page three …
Striker asked Eli cottonwood and John Morrison the same question. Eli Cottonwood looks like a beast. He intimidated Striker by getting up in his face asking him who will he vote for.
LayCool and Kaval were asked the same question. Kaval said that the ball is in the court of the WWE Universe. The obstacle course is up next.
The obstacle course took place with the person with the fastest time earning immunity From elimination. Michael McGillicutty was up first with 26.7 sec. Alex Riley was next with 40.3 seconds and was disqualified. Eli Cottonwood got 37.2 seconds but was also disqualified.
Lucky Cannon got it in 28.2 sec. Kaval was next with 29.1 sec. Percy Watson got through it in 31.5 seconds. Husky Harris went last and got 50.3 seconds. Husky knocked down the third hurdle. I guess he thought he couldn’t make it. McGillicutty won the competition and is immune from elimination next week.
This concluded the NXT taping.
