NXT – April 19, 2011 – For the love of everything good and holy, get rid of Novak and O’Brian

NXT Date: April 19, 2011 Location: O2 Arena, London, England Commentators: William Regal, Josh Matthews Week I think seven here as I’m starting to think no one is ever going home.  I don’t mean that as hyperbole either.  I’m thinking that it might be just one winner declared at the end rather than having eliminations.  […]
