– From this point forward, WWE reportedly plans for the winner of each season of NXT to strictly receive a championship match. Company officials have dropped the stipulation of the winner receiving a contract since many of the contestants will ultimately end up on the main roster.
– The September 9, 2010 edition of WWE Superstars on WGN America drew a 0.58 cable rating, with 579,000 viewers. The midnight replay scored a 0.25 rating, with 254,000 viewers.
– The official website of Florida Championship Wrestling has added three WWE developmental talents to its roster page in Brad Maddox, Caylee Turner and Kevin Hackman.
