Readers Ray LeBlanc, Jon Harris, and Tony Sasek are at the WWE Smackdown taping in Omaha, Nebraska and are sending in the following updates on the WWE NXT taping.
1. The Uso Brothers defeated Tyler Reks and Curt Hawkins. Not a bad starting match, writes Jon. The Usos did a good job of getting the crowd involved and got a decent pop when they came out, Hawkins and Reks got no response. Tony was bored by the match.
The lower bowl of the building has a good crowd, but the upper deck is tarped off.
