My take on the situation? Good. Lucky Cannon has not impressed me since the beginning. I don't think he's shown the ability to be anything worthwhile in the WWE either on the mic or in the ring. He just doesn't have the charisma or personality, nor did he "wow" me in the ring, and he was befuddled every time he got on the mic. My guess is this is pretty much the last we see of him. I can't picture them using him in any capacity other than possibly a jobber for a few months and an eventual release.
The poll, for those interested, went as follows:
2. Michael McGillicutty
3. Percy Watson
4. Husky Harris
5. Alex Riley
6. Lucky Cannon
I'm a bit confused as to why this is the order they chose. Kaval has a 1-5 record going into this edition of NXT (or actually, it may have been 1-6, come to think of it) and gets the victory tonight in the tag match, which puts him over the nearly undefeated Hennig? Also, Riley gets knocked down below Harris and Watson? It doesn't make much sense to me.
Next week is supposedly a double elimination. My guesses for those candidates: Percy Watson and Husky Harris. Alex Riley is simply too good to lose this early on, Kaval is too popular to knock off, and McGillicutty has no reasoning for being removed.
