Notes About The Show:
– Jillian Beyor was the ring announcer for the first half of the show, and Penny Cash was ring announcer for the second half.
– Curt Hawkins was given a tryout as color commentator (alongside ECW’s Byron Saxton working play by play) during the first half of the show. For the second half, Big E. Langston tried out for play by play (as Wade Barrett provided color commentary).
– Early in the show, the Rotundo Brothers cut a funny promo about using animals for weightlifting (curling goats, military pressing wildebeests, bench pressing horses, etc..). Then they issued an open challenge to two of their “best friends” Joe Hennig & Brett DiBiase for the Florida Tag Team Titles.
– Serena Deeb, who had been working as Mia Mancini, debuted her new “Straight Edge Society” hairstyle and return of her former ring name “Serena Mancini”. She, however, was still doing her Mafioso gimmick.
– FCW Diva Courtney Taylor hosted an interview segment with acting FCW General Manager Norman Smiley, Liviana (who had been acting as Abraham Washington’s personal assistant and virtually threw herself at Smiley to maintain that position), & Titus O’Neill. Smiley introduced O’Neill as FCW’s first "Player’s Representative". Oneill stated that this position acts as a mediator between wrestlers & management. If any wrestlers have any issues with management, they are to come to him. At this point, Michael Tarver comes to the ring to file a grievance. He felt he was robbed last week against Angel.He demanded a title match against the winner of Angel vs. Beretta title match. Smiley denied him the match because of the disrespectful way he handled his grievance.ã€€
– The main event was a 5 star match that I wish could have been part of a TV taping. I have no doubt that Angel & Beretta will be a big part of the WWE. Same goes with Kaval and Croft who also were also very inpressive.
– Those noticeably absent from the show included Abraham Washington, Dawson Alexander, Derrick Bateman, Eli Cottonwood, and Tyler Reks (who even stated on his MySpace page he would be there).
