New NXT Announce Team, Divas Begin Training, Cesaro vs. Zayn, More
– Three new WWE developmental Divas began training in Orlando this week – Rebecca Quin (Irish wrestler), CJ Perry (actress & former Red Bull model) and Brittany Fetkin (model & freelance TV reporter).
– Jim Ross revealed that the new WWE NXT broadcast team is made up of Alex Riley and Tom Phillips. They are being coached by JR and Michael Cole.
– The WWE NXT episodes for the month of August will be loaded as several top WWE Superstars worked last night’s tapings because they were in town for the Performance Center grand opening. Main roster stars who worked last night included The Shield, The Wyatt Family, Antonio Cesaro, Paul Heyman, Curtis Axel, Summer Rae, Big E Langston and AJ Lee. The WWE Divas Title, the Intercontinental Title and the United States Title were defended last night.
One of the main events saw Cesaro face Sami Zayn (the former El Generico) in a 2 of 3 Falls Match. That match was described as one of the best WWE matches in years. Fans chanted “match of the year” and gave both men standing ovations.
