Here are the remaining official NXT rookie's records as of 2/8/11:
Brodus Clay: 5-2
Derrick Bateman: 3-4
Byron Saxton: 3-6
Johnny Curtis: 2-6

Immunity Points:
Brodus Clay: 3 (
Johnny Curtis: 3 (Arm Wrestling)
Byron Saxton: 2 (Rock 'em Sock 'em)
Derrick Bateman: 2 (Talk the Talk)

NOTE: Johnny Curtis won immunity based on a WWE Universe vote.

Rock 'em Sock 'em Rookie Challenge (2 points):
Saxton won after a redo on the final. OK, next!
______________ Challenge (3 points):
Really, now? I think I was more interested in seeing AJ and Naomi again. Brodus won?! Cool.

NXT Elimination:
Byron Saxton was eliminated. Another relatively easy call, given Curtis was immune, Bateman is way over with the crowd, and Clay is pretty darn impressive. And Saxton basically cried on his elimination speech. I think his elimination speech stunk. And then Saxton doesn't do anything when Dolph was basically in his face berating him? Yeah, get out Saxton. In this business, I'd still like to see some form of spine on a wrestler, some form of ruthless aggression -- even in a PG world.
