Thanks to Nuke Graham for sending this in:

Here’s a brief rundown of the NXT Season 2 rookies:

Husky Harris (Windham Rotunda) – Former Troy University offensive lineman and son of Mike Rotunda, Grandson of Blackjack Mulligan, and nephew to Barry & Kendall Windham. Has been working in FCW (WWE Developmental) since early 2009 as "Duke Rotundo" and is a former FCW tag team champion with his brother Taylor "Bo" Rotunda.
 
Eli Cottonwood (Kipp Christianson) – A former basketball standout at St. John’s University, as well as in the CBA. He’s been with FCW since early 2009.
 
Percy Watson (Chris McNeil) – Was 1/2 of the tag team "The South Beach Boys" with NXT Season 1 rookie Darren Young. Debuted in FCW in mid 2009.
 
Titus O’Neill (Thaddeus Bullard) – This former Florida Gators defensive end has been making an impact in FCW since his 2009 debut.
 
Kaval (Brandon Sylvestry) – Best known as Low-Ki, he may be, pound for pound, one of the best workers out there. He’s been a star and title holder in ROH & TNA. If he can avoid injury, his WWE career could really take off with or without winning NXT.
 
Lucky Cannon (Jon Emminger) – New Port Richey, FL native who started his FCW career in 2007. His ringname in FCW as of last week has been Johnny Prime.
 
Michael McGillicutty (Joe Hennig) – Son of "Mr. Perfect" Curt Hennig. Has held the FCW Championship and FCW Tag Team Championship (with NXT Season 1 rookie Heath Slater) since his 2008 debut.
 
Alex Riley (Kevin Kiley) – Has worked in FCW since 2007 as Kevin Kiley, Carson Oakley, and Alex Riley. He is the current FCW Champion. He may be the best on the mic of this group.
