– Prior to the show, there was an autograph session with The Hart Dynasty and WWE Legend Mike “IRS” Rotundo.
– Byron Saxton & Dusty Rhodes were the announcers for week one, Saxton & Wade Barrett for week two, and Saxton, Barrett, & Rhodes for week 3.
– Savannah served as the ring announcer for all 3 shows.
– Kaval made his on camera return after a 9 month absence due to injury
– A new interview segment was introduced featuring FCW Diva Penny Cash & Leroy Morgan (son of former WWF announcer Mike McGuirk) interviewing FCW Superstars. The first segment featured an interview with Wes Brisco, and the second featured Kaval, which was interrupted with an attack by Eric Escobar, which led to a huge pull-apart.
-”The Dudebusters” officially announced that former WWE Tag Champion Curt Hawkins is their third member. Croft, Beretta, & Hawkins even played “Rock, Paper, Scissors” to determine which two members would face the Rotundo Brothers for tag titles as the week one main event.
– The Christmas Show had a live “Abraham Washington Show” which featured FCW Divas Liviana, AJ Lee, Rosa Mendes, Courtney Taylor, Naomi Night, & Aksana (who was accompanied by Eli Cottonwood) as “Santa’s Helpers”. Washington then introduced the returning Sweet Papi Sanchez dressed as Santa Claus. The segment ended with Papi hitting Cottonwood in the head with his candy box. Papi then draped Aksana over his shoulder and carried her out the back door as she screamed for Cottonwood.
-The main event of the Christmas Show was an absolute classic between Kaval & Eric Escobar that stunned the audience, who chanted “That was awesome!” after it ended.
– The New Years show featured a live “Abraham Washington Show” with guest, FCW Heavyweight Champion, Justin Angel (who was visibly limping thought the injury was not acknowledged… Five days ago, I reported that Angel was on crutches at a live event). The interview was about New Year’s resolutions, and as the interview became heated, Washington called out FCW President, Steve Keirn, to join in on the discussion. Keirn announced that according to “FCW by laws”, Washington’s term as General Manager will be over at the end of the year. Keirn announced that the new FCW GM for 2010 will be WWE Hall Of Famer, “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes. As Washington was arguing the decision, IRS came to the ring, accompanied by young FCW talent Conrad Tanner & Lift Sawyer. IRS announced that Washington was being audited and that Washington had to come with them. Tanner & Sawyer forcibly carried Washington out of the arena as they left with IRS. Hilarious bit as the crowd went crazy.
– In addition to Angel, injuries kept Wes Brisco and Dylan Klein out action for this taping.
– Noticeably absent from the show were “The Queen Of FCW” Mia Mancini, Alex Riley, Dawson Alexander, Tyler Reks, Vance Archer, & The South Beach Boys
