– As noted before, Ricky Steamboat is no longer a coach in WWE developmental but official company word is that he will be staying within the Talent Relations department. A lot of the guys in NXT are bummed about the news because of who Steamboat is. He was said to be a very good coach overall. There was talk that some of his ideas didn’t fit in with the current product but if anything negative was said about him it was very minor.
– Rami Sebei, the former El Generico, has been doing great on promos at practice in developmental. There was some question about how his promo work would be since his gimmick on the indies wasn’t talking.
– Two NXT wrestlers who have been praised that didn’t come from the independent scene are Mojo Rawley (Dean Muhtadi) and Jason Jordan (Nathan Everhart). Rawley is a former NFL player.
– Ric Flair’s daughter Ashley, known in NXT as Charlotte, is the most athletic woman in WWE developmental and probably the entire WWE roster. It’s said she has developed a passion for wrestling.
