Quote Playing off of his heel persona during last night's WWE NXT, the following was posted on the WWE Universe Twitter feed… "Michael Cole has requested his @WWE Universe profile be removed from our site, not wanting to associate with 'online fans" any longer."

-- Chris Jericho commented on last night's NXT debut… "NXT was pretty cool. Daniel Bryan and Wade Barrett will be stars. However, Punks guy has the worst hair I've ever seen...."

-- Joey Styles commented on Michael Cole's commentary last night… "I'm an Internet fan and I can assure you that the exchange between Josh Mathews and Michael Cole was very real. Cole lives in the WWE bubble."

-- David Otunga, who made his debut on last night's WWE NXT show, has received some attention from mainstream media outlets. Contact Music has an article up, discussing that Otunga wants to marry his fiancé, singer Jennifer Hudson, in a wrestling ring.

I doubt the views of Michael Cole are anything but storyline.
 
Jericho knows from being in the ring with Daniel Bryan just the once that he's got start potential.
 
Don't be surprised if Jennifer Hudson isn't brought in to help get her fiance some good publicity.

Watched the first episode of nXt now (that logo can´t be written in a cool way, sorry). Things I noticed: Daniel Bryan botch: You don´t fall backwards at full speed when receiving an enzuigiri (a kick to the back of the head would make you fall forward or slump to the knees, which looks cooler too). 

Savannah Botch: announcing Daniel Bryan from somewhere in Washington when his insert said Las Vegas, NV.  

Josh Matthews OWNING Michael Cole about the Pro/Student thing, stating that Cole has been in this business for 13 years and still gets schooled... *LOL*

Striker being wasted in a backstage interviewer role. Hopefully he at least gets to display his heel persona a bit more there.

Rookies: Heath Slater, Bryan of course and Otunga looked good, Otunga was of course made to look good with his squash match victory. Carlito´s rookie didn´t look bad as well, even though he lost, good job on the part of Christian, who didn´t make it look that downputting.

Looking forward to Matt Hardy´s rookie Justin... forgot the last name. Have seen him in FCW already, he´s good. 

We shall see. Savannah needs to be put back in the ring to wrestle. She´s wasted as announcer.

WWE NXT Episode 1: Feb 23rd 2010

Part 1: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xccjl4_wwe-nxt-feb-23rd-hdtv-xvid-part-1-d_shortfilms

Part 2: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xccjl5_wwe-nxt-feb-23rd-hdtv-xvid-part-2-d_shortfilms

Part 3: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xccjl6_wwe-nxt-feb-23rd-hdtv-xvid-part-3-d_shortfilms

The ring they used for the show looked to be slightly smaller than the ones we are used to seeing.

A number of the guys impressed me such as Daniel Bryan (of course), Michael Tarver and David Otunga.

Wade Barrett knew how to get instant heel heat. All he had to do was say how much of an honour it was to be with Jericho lol.

I enjoyed the first show.....the Miz mentoring Daniel Bryan is a smart move as its being made in to a shoot storyline of sorts with Miz criticising Bryan's personality while at the same time its allowing Bryan to put over his wrestling experience, this will no doubt lead to a feud between the two down the line.

Bryan had a great match considering how short it was with Jericho, his style dosnt appear to have been watered down to much. He took a very nasty bump against the announce-table but he showed some sweet offense, expecially when he countered the walls of Jericho in to a very painfull looking submission hold.

Not sure if Bryan will ever main-event in WWE but I can see him in a nice high mid-card spot.

Christian's rookie Heath Slater looked like he was trying to hard, but R-Truth's guy David Otanga showed alot of potential and has the perfect look for WWE, the Hollywood background gimmick is good as well.

So far it's interesting.  Of course it isn't the "next innovation"-- whatever Vince claimed it would be.  But its very much like how the WWE was attempting to use the ECW in relationship to FCW.  I'm still not sure where the "reality show" angle fits in with the hype.
 
I would like to suggest the next NXT series introduces new tag teams.  They could use the Rotundas, the Usos, Joe Hennig and Brett DiBiase, the Briscoe Brothers, and maybe throw together a couple of other teams.

I'm ready for tonight and seeing some of the other partnerships we haven't seen yet.
 
I do wonder if their is bitching backstage between the guys involved as they are bound to be competitive.
 
Not everyone on the show is going to make it big so you can't be too friendly with the others because they are after the same spot as you.

I admit it.  I was watching and as soon as the "Cornfed Meathead" Skip Sheffield came on I fell asleep!  Sleepy  WWE is going to have to run some sort of warning about watching that guy after a long day at work.  I'm only glad that Daniel Bryan's match was earlier, he's clearly the star of the show.

I watched the first show and thought it was boring. I was hoping for it to be about their real lifes, real training and there real attempt to make it in the WWE. However what I got was a storyline based pile of nothing with all the 'stars' still in character

Same here, don't get me wrong it had good matches and I think it will make nearly all of the rookies into stars, but I thought it would have a running documentary feel like the Ultimate Fighter.
