http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wDXMcB3AFCE (vs. Sheamus)

Jason Novak (babyface) -

Byron Saxon (heel) vs. Derrick Batemen (babyface)-
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0fLwDlKMfA

Conor O'Brian interview (heel)-
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpKmyUymtHQ
(didn't find much under his current or former name, Ryan O'Reilly, must be new)

Brodus Clay (heel) -
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YjDyfMeQ2Yg (vs. Lucky Cannon)

My Analysis:

Curtis and Novak are both talented in the ring, Promos remain to be seen.
Saxon should stay in an announcing or commentating role, do not think he is good in the ring.
O'Brian interviews well, but I have yet to see him in the ring perform.
With the WWE going smaller, Clay is not a viable option, "Monsters" are now the size of Sheamus or Cena.
Was not too impressed by Batemen, hopefully he can pick it up, for his sake.

What do you think of these rookies, (judging by the matches and promos)

lol. Cena isn't considered a monster. And Sheamus is 6'6". That's pretty big.

Curtis is definitely going to win the next season.

Im surprised you think Byron should stay away from the ring, yet Novak is good in the ring. I was rather surprised how good Byron was in the ring from that match he had with Bateman.

Upon further examination:

Curtis seems to have more of a brawler style, Del Rio kept the match alive with his quick athletic maneuvers.I would like to see more technical elements out of him. He is obviously not in the same league as Del Rio and Del Rio is a mid carder. He was better in his match against Sheamus, but Sheamus was in control for a lot of the match. I do not think he sells enough either. Out of the bunch this season he is one of the best in the ring, but that isn't saying much.

As for Novak, it looks like Woods would have been the better choice of rookie, I do not think that he has the ability to carry matches. His chops do not look believable for some reason. He works a slow pace than what I personally like, and for that reason I do not think he can maintain momentum in a match. Most of his spots against Woods just looked awkward. In Novak vs. Woods, the match was far more enjoyable when Woods was in control. For his match against Riley, he entered with a lot more confidence, and it looked like he would put more energy into the match, it was like a whole different Novak, if only he has more matches like that. It was technical and brutal all at the same time. But I guess that is from putting all the spots from a 10 minute match into a two minute match. I can definitely not see him on PPV.

More analysis to come.
