Know Your Pro Challenge (4 points):
Seeing Daniel Bryan match Bateman all the time was funny. Some answers were actually amusing.

NXT Elimination:
Conor O'Brian was eliminated tonight. Crappy farewell speech. At least he had the best record of all the rookies (3-1) -- but his "match" with Ricardo Rodriguez was horrible. I know it was basically supposed to be a comedy match, but hell, Santino's matches are filled with comedy and they are actually good. This was just bad.

Before the show even started, I had predicted Johnny Curtis would get eliminated next. It seemed like everyone else had some sort of storyline going for them, but I just couldn't see what WWE had for Curtis. Curtis seemed pretty disinterested all night. I would say he's still next to leave.
