WWE.COM NXT REPORT: DANIEL BRYAN AND DERRICK BATEMAN SHARE THE SAME BRAIN; HOW WILL WE SURVIVE WITHOUT THE ‘RAT’ JOKES?; WILL TED AND MARYSE EVER BREAK UP . . . AND IF IT HAPPENS, WILL IT MATTER?
By Richard Trionfo on 2011-01-19 03:06:27
We start off with a look at the misadventures of Conor O’Brian and his rat like behavior and the hatred that Ricardo Rodriguez has for Conor. Then we go to the Bellas and Daniel Bryan as well as the Derrick Bateman double date from WCW creative. Then there is Byron Saxton and his new pro Dolph Ziggler because Dolph was never a fan of the well dressed man (from the waist up). Brodus Clay and Ted DiBiase are also having issues because Ted feels that Brodus is not showing him the respect that he deserves for losing to everyone in WWE and being berated by Maryse. What will happen this week because we have another elimination to deal with.

Match Number Three: Ricardo Rodriguez versus Conor O’Brian

O’Brian with kicks as we see Alberto Del Rio watching the match from the back. OBrian misses an elbow drop and Rodriguez with punches but O’Brian connects. O’Brian exposes one of the turnbuckles and he misses a splash when Rodriguez moves ot of the way. Rodriguez checks on O’Brian and then he falls on top of O’Brian to get the three count.
Winner: Ricardo Rodriguez
After the match, Rodriguez celebrates but he hits the exposed turnbuckle and he may have injured his back.
It is time for the pros to make the final vote before elimination as we go to commercial.
We are back and Matt Striker gets us ready for the next elimination. Since Derrick Bateman is safe this week, Matt wants to get Derrick’s thoughts on who should be eliminated. Derrick says that everyone is talented but the man who should go is the man with the most punchable face and that is Byron Saxton.
We go to the Random Generated Eliminatron Version 4.0 and the rookie who is eliminated is Conor O’Brian. Conor gets to say his goodbyes. He says that it has been real and it has been fun, but it has not been real fun. Ricardo announces the elimination in Spanish. Conor tells Ricardo that he can kiss his rat tail and wants to know who Ricardo thinks he is. Ricardo responds that he is the winner tonight. Conor chases Ricardo to the back. Conor comes back out and says that everyone sucks and the rat has left the building. Conor rolls under the ring to try to get some of Hornswoggle’s pot of cheese.
