WWE shot a lot of footage with the NXT rookies in Tampa last week and is expected to start airing it over the next few weeks.
They also want to involve all of the NXT rookies at WrestleMania 26.
Believe it or not, WWE only realised after NXT began that Michael Tarver’s knockout punch gimmick is the same as the Big Show’s finisher. Tarver has the boxing gimmick as his character but Show has precedence with the move. Tarver was one of Floyd Mayweather’s entourage in 2008 during the feud with Show. WWE had put some developmental wrestlers alongside Mayweather’s own people in the crew so they could take some bumps.
