Is it just me or does it seem like the pros on NXT are cursed?

S1:
Jericho-He won the world title while being a pro, but after the season ended, he barely did much and eventually got "injured" and isn't on tv anymore

R-Truth-He never had anything going for him before NXT anyways

Hardy,Carlito-Both got fired

Regal-Is retiring(don't believe I saw him at all on tv for 2010 except on NXT)

Christian,Punk-Both got injured for real

Miz-Is the only successful pro

..:
Laycool-They did have the divas title, but eventually ended up losing it and looks like they're gonna split up soon

Kofi-He held the IC title but lost it halfway through NXT and hasn't done much since

Rhodes-Went into the "dashing" stuff during NXT and he did have the undisputed tag titles for abit

MVP-Got released

Henry-Same as R-Truth, didn't do anything before or after NXT

Morrison-For abit before NXT, it looked like he might breakout and possibly even win MITB at WM but he didn't, he is one of the few pros doing better after NXT

Ryder-Same as Truth-Henry, unless you count getting squashed in a few seconds in a WWE title match as doing better.....



Looks like there's a good chance that being a pro on NXT means you'll do worse off after NXT is done. Other than Miz,nobody has really greatly improved since NXT and a few have been fired or injured.

No I dont agree

1) Jericho will be back soon

2) Carlito lost his passion for WWE even before NXT.

3) Matt Hardy was not pushed for being out of shape and WWE wanting to push young talent this was before NXT.

4) R-truth was doing nothing before NXT likr you said

5) Christian and CM Punk did get injured but CM Punk for the moment has made RAW commentary even better and both will be back soon.

6) MVP, Zach Ryder, Primo, Mark Henry were not doing much before NXT

7) Laycool became Unified Divas Champions

8) Cody has been winning matches lately

9)We all knew William Regal would retire soon

10) Miz became WWE champion

11) Morrison has gotten a clean victory over Sheamus in PPV and he looks to be going into the main event soon.

Really the only bad things the pros faced were some injuries but most releases were due to the talent wanting to leave because they were not doing much before NXT and after NXT. For the most part some of the pros chosen for NXT were not doing much before NXT and thus after NXT they still did nothing which led to the releases.

I would truth is doing a lot more than first season. He got a US title run and is a bit relevant in the Cena-Nexus feud

Jericho - had planned on not renewing his contract months ahead of time. No curse.
R-Truth- Once a mid-carder. Always a mid-carder. No curse
Regal - was a jobber before and after NXT. Planned on retirmemtn anyways. No curse.
Miz- became the most successful WWE Pro in NXT history. No curse.
Laycool- Just as big as they've always been. Just without the title. No curse.
Kofi- is back to getting Intercontinental Championship title shots. No curse.
Rhodes - became more successful thanks to his time on NXT. No curse.
Hardy - Was going to happen sooner than later. No curse.
Carlito - same as Hardy. Was going to happen sooner than later. No curse.
MVP - same as Hardy. Was going to happen sooner than later. No curse.
Henry - Like you said, nothing really changed. No curse.
Morrison- Didn't really do shit on NXT but grow a mustache. No curse.
Ryder- Was a jobber before NXT. Is still a jobber after NXT. No curse.

In other words...no curse.

Regal won a match on Superstars this week. Just thought I'd add that in there, in case anyone hasn't seen it. It's not an all time classic, but it's always nice to see him work, and especially using the Regal Stretch.

Aren't the rookies the one who are meant to be improving? If anything, NXT is meant to give the pro's some relevance and TV time.

These are the one's I'll give you and even then, in the space of two-four months, people are bound to get fired and injured, that's just a formality.
Hardy,Carlito-Both got fired
Christian,Punk-Both got injured for real
Everything else hardly qualifies for curse territory.

Jericho-He won the world title while being a pro, but after the season ended, he barely did much and eventually got "injured" and isn't on tv anymore
Choseto take time off to tour with his band.

Laycool-They did have the divas title, but eventually ended up losing it and looks like they're gonna split up soon
Reigned for what felt like a thousand, then were booked to lose the Titles. Dude they were gonna' lose it eventually, what did you expect?

MVP-Got released
Asked for his release to chase up his dream of wrestling in Japan.

Regal-Is retiring(don't believe I saw him at all on tv for 2010 except on NXT)
...And if NXT didn't happen, Regal would continue wrestling forever?

Kofi-He held the IC title but lost it halfway through NXT and hasn't done much since
Hasn't done much since...in the two months since it's ended. Oh and he just became IC Title number 1 contender.

R-Truth-He never had anything going for him before NXT anyways
Henry-Same as R-Truth, didn't do anything before or after NXT
Morrison-For abit before NXT, it looked like he might breakout and possibly even win MITB at WM but he didn't, he is one of the few pros doing better after NXT
Ryder-Same as Truth-Henry, unless you count getting squashed in a few seconds in a WWE title match as doing better.....

Basically continued to float around the midcard as always.
