This past Tuesday NXT (on Scifi) had it's first pro poll. NXT is the WWE's new "reality" show. They have 8 professional wrestlers mentoring 8 NXT rookies. This week they polled the pros. The pros had to pick their favorite rookie based on the following criteria; win loss records, strength of their opponents, work ethic, and the "it" factor. The pros cannot vote for their rookie.
Here are the results:
#7 is Michael Tarver (Pro Carlito). Tarver has no wins and 4 losses.
#6 is Skip Sheffield (my personal favorite). His pro is William Regal. Skip has zero wins and 4 losses. His vest says cornfed meathead. I like his personality and he's very strong.
#5 is David Otunga (Mr. Jennifer Hudson). His pro is R-Truth. Otunga has 4 wins and 1 loss. Otunga has stars shaved into his hair. He recently won the rookie battle royal winning himself the opportunity to guest host Monday Night Raw.
#4 is Heath Slater (Pro Christian...Christian Slater...cracks me up). Slater has 4 wins and 1 loss.
#3 is Justin Gabriel (Pro Matt Hardy). Gabriel has 3 wins and 2 losses. Gabriel has the best moves out of all the rookies. His 450 splash is very impressive. And I think he looks a lot like Adam Lambert from American Idol.
#2 is Wade Barrett (Pro Chris Jericho, the World Heavyweight Champion). Barrett has 3 wins and 3 losses.
The first elimination on NXT will be held in 6 weeks.
