-Ross on the latest WWE NXT taping: "Several kids stood out this past week in Orlando including Adrian Neville, Bo Dallas, The Bray Wyatt Family, Sami Zayn, Kassius Ohno, Summer Rae (Yep, the same long legged young lady who is now with Fandango), Curt Hawkins, Big E Langston, and Damien Sandow  among others. This is not a compete list but I'm simply going off my aged memory. Some newcomers and a couple of new tag teams stuck their toe in the water plus I saw some talents who have viable verbal skills in an organic delivery which is always best."

Powell's POV: Neville wrestles as PAC on the indy scene, Bray Wyatt was Husky Harris, and Sami Zayn is the unmasked El Generico. Ross wrote a lot about the latest NXT taping in his full blog.

-Ross on the latest timeline for the WWE Performance Center: "NXT personnel expect to be in the new, Performance Center by July if all continues to go well with the contractors. This facility will be for NXT talents AND regular WWE talents who are presently touring on Raw and Smackdown. The new strength and conditioning coach is already on the job and making a positive impact."

Powell's POV:

-Ross on Mason Ryan: "Mason Ryan has made some significant improvement since being back in NXT and I look for him to be able to contribute on the next level if he continues to push himself and receive his coaching as he has been. There's no substitute for hard work in the ring and through study out of it. To be great can't be accomplished simply while a prospect is "on the clock" but takes extra effort including studying the game."

Powell's POV: Ryan was too green for the active roster when we last saw him with working consistently on the main roster and more time in developmental was clearly needed.
