David Otunga vs. Justin Gabriel vs. Wade Barrett

R-Truth, Matt Hardy and Chris Jericho (respectively) are at ringside to support their rookies. This is not a typical triple-threat match. The rules for this are elimination style rules. Each person pinned or submitted is eliminated. Barrett is beaten down from the get-go. Otunga going to work on Gabriel now. The theme of the match seems to be one guy selling on the floor while the other two work in the ring. Gabriel hits an insane 450 splash onto Otunga in the ring. Barrett breaks up the pinfall attempt and pins Otunga himself. Otunga is now eliminated. It’s down to Barrett and Gabriel.

We return from commercial to find Barrett hitting a gut buster and abdominal stretch on Gabriel. Gabriel fighting back now with kicks to the body of Barrett. He hits a nice flying cross body for a nearfall. Barrett goes for his finisher but Gabriel counters out of it. Gabriel hits a sunset flip on Barrett for a pin attempt. No dice. He misses the big 450 splash. Barrett rolls Gabriel up and gets the 1-2-3 for the victory.

Winner: Wade Barrett

Matt Striker Interviews:

Striker asks each of the eliminated NXT rookies who should win and why. Michael Tarver thinks he should win it himself. Daniel Bryan says Otunga can’t wrestle and Gabriel can’t talk, therefore he feels Barrett should win. Skip Sheffield says he doesn’t care who wins. Darren Young says Barrett should win. Heath Slater also says Barrett.

Pro’s Poll:

The first Pro’s Poll of the evening features Wade Barrett in the lead, Otguna in second and Gabriel third. Gabriel is officially eliminated. It’s down to Barrett and Otunga!

Promo Contest: David Otunga

This is the final competition. Each guys gets 60 seconds to explain why the other man should be eliminated. Otunga said the only person Barrett scares is his dentist. He follows up by saying the only triple-threat match he would be in that people would care about is himself vs. Aqua Fresh vs. Listerine. He said he can learn how to wrestle but Barrett can’t be taught the "it factor."

Promo Contest: Wade Barrett

Barrett says Otunga has a good body but no idea how to use it. He says Great Khali moves better than Otunga. Barrett says people telling Otunga he has the "it factor" is just a nice way of saying he doesn’t have any good qualities, I.E. – wrestling or talking. He says you need to add two letters to "it" to understand what Barrett thinks of Otunga.

Another NXT Rookie:

Kofi Kingston cuts a promo for his NXT rookie – Michael McGillicutty, the son of the late Curt Hennig.

Pro’s Poll Numero Dos — NXT Winner Is …

The second Pro’s Poll is revealed. William Regal congratulated Chris Jericho but R-Truth said nothing has been announced yet. Regal said the only reason Otunga is there is because he married well. Ouch. He says he’s seen Otunga’s wife and maybe he didn’t marry that well after all. Double ouch. Regal and R-Truth go face-to-face. Jericho says his guy will win because he mentored him. He said Skip Sheffield would have won if he was Jericho’s rookie. Regal says Barrett would have won with anyone. CM Punk takes off. Striker puts up the second Pro’s Poll. A drumroll hits and we find out that Wade Barrett is the official winner of NXT season one.
