— Here is the complete list of Pros and Rookies for the next season of WWE NXT.
– Daniel Bryan will be mentoring Derrick Bateman.
– Alberto Del Rio will be mentoring Conor O’Brian.
– R-Truth will be mentoring Johnny Curtis.
– Chris Masters will be mentoring Byron Saxton (former ECW announcer)
– Ted DiBiase will be mentoring Brodius Clay.
Michael Cole was rumored as a mentor (seriously), but must have been pulled sometime this afternoon during a creative meeting. He was originally penned in to be the pro of Seth Rollins (Tyler Black).
Seth Rollins and Damien Sandow were considered for Season Four, but later dropped. Mason Ryan or Wes Brisco from FCW may also make the cut.
– Ex-WWE star Matt Hardy took to his Twitter last night and stated that he thought wrestling in general was in desperate need of a change. Here are some of his tweets: “For the 1st time in a while, I watched Raw straight-thru on DVR after getting home tonight.. That was a long 3 hours. Business needs change. I’m really happy for my friends & the guys that are getting to perform & make a living in the biz, but I feel the biz is slowly fading. There desperately needs to be a new era ushered in that changes the entire landscape and mindset of professional wrestling.. And soon.”
