Results from FCW's event in Melbourne, FL on Wednesday. Report courtesy of Will P. and PWInsider:
I know it's a little late, but here are the results and notes from the FCW event in Melbourne, FL on Wed (6/9).
* Yoshi Tatsu d. Drake Brewer (Note: Match was originally advertised as Brewer vs. Rudy Parker)
* Mason Ryan, Curt Hawkins & Vance Archer d. Mike McGuillicutty, Percy Watson, & Johnny Curtis
* Bo Rotundo d. Donny Marlow (w/ Brodus Clay)
* Naomi Night & Aksana d. Liviana & Tamina
* Melbourne, FL's own Jamie Noble d. Tyler Reks
* Los Aviadores (Hunico y Epico) d. The Uso's with Tamina (Note: My crew and Tamina got into it! She really knows how to work.. More on her in a bit)
* Intermission: Kaval and Abraham Washington were just walking around and instantly got crowded (especially Kaval) for autographs and pictures.
* FCW Heavyweight Champion Alex Riley d. Lucky Cannon via count-out to retain.
* Match was scheduled as The Miz & Daniel Bryan vs. Christian & Heath Slater....
As reported previously, it became Rookies vs Pros when Slater & Bryan took on Christian & Miz... The younger crowd was going crazy for Miz & Christian, while the older crowd was chanting "Let's Go Dragon", "Best In The World", and "He's Got Til 5!" at Bryan. Bryan eventually did his signature, "I have til 5" catchphrase when he was beating the pros down.
As Miz & Christian were going for their finishers, the Season 1 NXT Rookies stormed the ring with a repeat of the conclusion to Monday Night RAW.
Note: There were well over 200 people in attendance at the Melbourne Auditorium. The proceeds from parking, beer, and advertising went to help the South Brevard Sharing Center, which made almost $1,000 from the event. Ricky Steamboat, Shad, Kaval, Abraham Washington, Byron Saxton, Eli Cottonwood, and several others were seen at the event. There was an autograph session with Justin Gabriel, Heath Slater, Daniel Bryan, Christian, & The Miz prior to the matches.
I saw Tamina after the show and apologized for ragging on her so bad. My crew and I were taunting her with "Nattie's gonna kick your @$$!" and she challenged all of us to take her on! She was VERY nice when I met her and introduced herself formally.
All-in-all an AMAZING event. Everyone went home happy and people are still talking about the end of the show, much like RAW.
