3/9/10 NXT

R-Truth & David Otunga vs. The Miz & Daniel Bryan: **1/4

Heath Slater vs. Carlito: **

Justin Gabriel vs. Wade Barrett: *1/2

Skip Sheffield was the only rookie not used tonight (Darren Young was in a video package and then a skit with the Straight Edge Society).

I am liking this show. It's sad that the matches on this show are generally better than RAW, in my opinion.

Here are the rookie's records as of 3/9/10:
Heath Slater: 2-0
Justin Gabriel: 2-0
David Otunga: 2-1
Wade Barrett: 1-1
Darren Young: 1-1
Skip Sheffield: 0-1
Michael Tarver: 0-1
Daniel Bryan: 0-3

Daniel Bryan and David Otunga are the only two rookies to wrestle on each show so far. So it is true that WWE is trying to incorporate these two as much as possible. However, as one can see, Otunga and Bryan have different results. While I like Daniel Bryan's storyline with Miz, something tells me Bryan will probably have an off-the-charts match later in the season to thrust himself back into the mix to win the competition. Justin Gabriel has stood out, but can he do something impressive other than the 450?

Surely WWE will have the pros take the wrestler records into account when they make their decisions? Maybe not, but we'll see.
