Quote WWE sent out the following press release, hyping the debut of WWE NXT:

WWE NXT™ DEBUTS ON SYFY,

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 23, AT 10PM (ET/PT)

Stamford, Connecticut – February 22, 2010 - Syfy and World Wrestling Entertainment® today announced the competitors on WWE NXT, a new hybrid live event/reality show featuring eight popular WWE Superstars ("Pros") mentoring eight WWE "Rookies," premiering on Syfy Tuesday, February 23, at 10PM (ET/PT). The winning NXT Rookie will receive a WWE roster spot. Among the NXT Rookies are the fiancé of Academy Award® winner Jennifer Hudson, a firefighter in training from New Jersey, a food eating dynamo and a former college basketball player.

NXT is a unique combination of heart-stopping entertainment and gritty behind-the-scenes reality. The Rookie stars of the series take the challenge of the Syfy tagline ‘Imagine Greater' to heart as they embark on their ultimate dream quest to join the next generation of WWE revered heroes and champions.

These Rookies, who are learning the ropes, are athletes who epitomize pop culture and personify strong attributes – they are opinionated and aggressive – which means inherent conflict between Rookies and other Rookies, conflict between Rookies and Pros, as well as, conflict between Pros and Pros. The trials and tribulations of the WWE NXT cast ensure action-packed, innovative entertainment – WWE style.

The WWE Pros and NXT Rookies will be:

o WWE Pro R-Truth with NXT Rookie David "A-List" Otunga
o WWE Pro The Miz with NXT Rookie Daniel Bryan
o WWE Pro Matt Hardy with NXT Rookie Justin Gabriel
o WWE Pro Chris Jericho with NXT Rookie Wade Barrett
o WWE Pro William Regal with NXT Rookie Skip Sheffield
o WWE Pro CM Punk with NXT Rookie Darren Young
o WWE Pro Christian with NXT Rookie Heath Slater
o WWE Pro Carlito with NXT Rookie Michael Tarver

The NXT Rookies come from around the world with diverse and interesting backgrounds: David Otunga is a Harvard Law graduate engaged to Academy Award winning actress and Grammy Award® winning recording artist Jennifer Hudson; Daniel Bryan is a former champion on the independent scene; Justin Gabriel and Wade Barrett traveled all the way from Cape Town and England respectively to make their WWE dreams come true; Skip Sheffield loves to challenge people to eating contests; Darren Young learned to be tough while training to become a firefighter in New Jersey; as a former college basketball player, Heath Slater, is looking to move from the basketball court to the squared circle; and Michael Tarver knows what it takes to be a force in the ring after growing up watching his father be the sparing partner of Heavyweight Champion Mike Tyson. Theses eight NXT Rookies are looking to see if they have what it takes to become a WWE Superstar.

Who's going to watch this tonight? I've a feeling those who do won't be let down.
 
Management will be hoping that around 2 or 3 of the batch make it big when Season 1 is over.
 
WWE are always releasing developmental talent so it could be the last chance to impress for a few.

I'm going to attempt to tune it just to see what the concept is like. Seems pretty interesting.

My bet is Skip Sheffield will be gone sooner than later on the basis he will fail another Wellness Test.

It's an interesting concept, that really allows the upcoming stars to get their feet wet and for the audience to grow a connection with the wrestler. Shame they couldn't do this for a Diva too, but of course the women to WWE are nothing but T&A.

Don't have much to say on the new batch of guys. It's a bit too early to make a claim. Although Darren Young's gimmick is terrible. He looks like a cross between a stripper and George of the Jungle.

CM Punk made that show for me.  Him cutting "go to hell" looks at his rookie was hilarious.  I don't know a thing about Bryan Danielson (Daniel Bryan) but people on another board I was at were creaming in their jeans over him.  He looked great against Jericho but he's so small, what the hell are people expecting?  About the best he will do is be a foe to Rey Mysterio.

NXT was not the next evolution at ALL! It wasn't a bad show (did you see that bump bryan took against the announcers desk) but it was just another wrestling show in my opinion.

I don't know who Bryan Danielson is either. Never heard of him until now, but I thought he looked great against Jericho. Don't know if his small stature will work against him though.

And Cole was annoying, but hit a new pinnacle. Where does he get off thinking he can actually berate the newcomers when he's a veteran in this business but hasn't improved at all? If anything, he's gotten worse.

I think Danielson might be in with a good shout in WWE, mainly because of the fact he was trained partly by Shawn Michaels, HBK actually mentions him in his autobiography, as far as allies in the company go, HBK isn't a bad one to have.

As for Cole, it doesn't surprise me, he's an arrogant prick who actually seems to think he means something in this business even though he's in a reality a complete and utter joke.
