DEADLOCK Podcast: Revisiting WWE NXT 2010 Episode #1, Reality TV Show, The Next Evolution Of WWE, Rookie Daniel Bryan With Pro The Miz vs Pro Chris Jericho With Rookie Wade Barrett, Mister 1 Point 9 Seconds Michael Tarver, DEADLOCK Top 5 Draft

We are wild and young! We have just begun! Mr. McMahon announced 3 weeks ago that WWE ECW was no longer going to be on TV. In its place was the “Next Evolution Of WWE!” This new show was called WWE NXT and it would feature current WWE Superstars as Pros and current FCW wrestlers as Rookies. It was a competition show that would eventually feature a game show style format with such games as chugging soda! However, we look back on the very first episode of NXT that is centered around Daniel Bryan being an internet darling dork and him not getting along with his pro The Miz! The main event features a great match between Chris Jericho and Daniel Bryan with some terrific wrestling. We also get hype packages for most of the rookies to learn a little more about their characters. This was a wild experiment in television history, that for good or bad, will not be forgotten. Plus, the boys have another Top 5 Draft, this time about Fast Food establishments.
