Much to our chagrin, tonight saw the return of WWE's NXT for yet another season.
What we will those who choose to watch via WWE.com be treated to?
A cast of former NXT losers !!!
This season's offering, titled NXT Redemption, will give a bunch of series castoffs a second chance to win this "prestigious" competition.
In this, its fifth season, NXT slightly tweaks the formula a bit with a small rule change that eliminates the benefit of immunity for the contestants.
This season sees six former NXT runners-up paired with the least remarkable set of WWE Pros to date.
Here are the pairs, Rookie followed by Pro:
Byron Saxton with Pro Yoshi Tatsu
Conor O'Brian with Pro Vladimir Kozlov
Darren Young with Pro Chavo Guerrero
Jacob Novak with Pro JTG
Lucky Cannon with Pro Tyson Kidd
Titus O'Neil with Pro Hornswoggle
Darren Young, former Nexus member, an NXT rookie? Hornswoggle, a character that doesn't even talk, let alone wrestle. a pro?
As the Miz would say "Really ... REALLY?"
Seems like they aren't even trying anymore.
