- The next NXT elimination will take place on Tuesday, February 22nd. After next week, there will be only two Rookies remaining, with the winner being determined on the March 1st finale.
— With NXT Season 4 wrapping up in less than 2 weeks, we’re alrady looking ahead to NXT Season 5 – set to premiere the week after Season 4’s finale. NXT Season 5 begins on March 8th and we reported last week that there’s been talk of a “father-son” theme featuring WWE legends mentoring their sons.
– Former NXT and Nexus member Michael Tarver was seen backstage on RAW once again this week, in the segment where The Miz was walking to the ring for his match with Daniel Bryan. Tarver was seen playing on his cellphone and looking at The Miz.
This marks the fourth time Tarver has appeared (and was barely acknowledged) on WWE television in the past several weeks.
– Fellow former NXT and Nexus member Husky Harris has been out of action for several weeks following a skull punt by Randy Orton. It’s interesting to note that his profile page has been added back to the Florida Championship Wrestling website, a sign that he won’t be back on WWE television any time soon.
WWE officials were said to be impressed with the young star’s in-ring work, but they feel his look needs work.
