2/23/10 NXT (Premiere)

Season 1 Premiere!

Christian & Heath Slater vs. Carlito & Michael Tarver: *1/4

David Otunga vs. Darren Young: DUD

Chris Jericho vs. Daniel Bryan: **1/4

First, I am going to like Miz and Daniel Bryan being paired up.

Second, if that Otunga/Young match went longer than two minutes, that was getting negative stars. Short match, ugly match.

Third, what was this I heard when watching NXT? Michael Cole seemingly sticking up for Miz and thereby playing a heel role? That's way better than what he's been doing on RAW (and even Smackdown before that). He really seemed to click in that heel persona when announcing with Josh Matthews.

Fourth, I like Bryan's catchphrase: "You have two options: you either tap, or you snap." I like it. Short and to the point.

And for the record, yes, I did catch Daniel Bryan's FCW match against Kaval (a.k.a. Low Ki/Senshi) from earlier this year. I would have rated that about ** to **1/4.
