    WWE NXT Where is Johnny Curtis?


    Yeah this guy

    On March 1st, Johnny Curtis was declared the winner of NXT season 4 beating follow finalist Brodus Clay in the process. As winner of the fourth season of NXT, Curtis earned a WWE Tag Team Title shot for himself and his NXT pro, R-Truth. Here's the historic moment when Curtis won the fourth season of NXT:


    It's May 9th and unless I missed something Johnny Curtis hasn't done a thing since becoming "WWE's next breakout star", the only time I've seen him on television is when he came out with the rest of the Smackdown roster to show their respect for a retiring Edge. Even after the draft from two weeks ago, they haven't placed Curtis on either the Raw or Smackdown roster. Brodus Clay on the other hand really hasn't been off our screens at all since March, most noticeably being heavily involved in Alberto Del Rio's feuds with Edge and Christian, and he was the runner up. And what about that tag team championship shot that Johnny Curtis was in store for, well seeing as though his NXT pro R-Truth has turned heel and has his own thing going on with John Morrison, Curtis's shot at the gold seems dead in the water. I imagine they've sent him down to FCW as they think he's not ready for the step up yet, but if that is the case, why not just announce Brodus Clay as the winner.

    At least Kaitlyn was given a segment explaining she's on Smackdown before she disappeared


    What are your thoughts on the disappearance of Johnny Curtis, should Brodus Clay won instead?, why are NXT winners (Barrett aside) failing to make the transition to Raw/SD?, should NXT end? - do you even care?

    Re: Where is Johnny Curtis?

    Haha, I know, it's crazy. NXT is such a joke. Not even R-Truth and his NXT rookie wants the tag titles.

    Not that I mind too much, I've never really seen much in Johnny Curtis. Brodus Clay should have been the winner, in my mind. Especially since they're doing stuff with him.

    Re: Where is Johnny Curtis?

    Here is the thing from WWE's point of view though. NXT is barely a show, especially since it was only on their website, so for them Johnny Curtis, is obviously of extremely low priority to them. Honestly won't be surprised if he doesn't get called back up until a lengthy stay in FCW, if at all.
    SWEEEEEEEEEEEET!!!!!

    Re: Where is Johnny Curtis?

    Johnny Curtis needed no more development, he won NXT and they should've given him and Truth the title shot. I just want to see the guy start making Smackdown, I think he's talented.

    To be honest, Bryan and Bateman should've won, right now they could be getting a tag title shot. Right now there's no way he and Truth are getting their shot. I guess Curtis will have to stay in FCW until Truth goes back to face.

    It's lame to see Brodus Clay (the runner up) main event Smackdown while the winner of NXT is nowhere to be seen tbh.

    Oh, I wasn't suggesting he needed more development, but he hasn't appeared yet, so they probably have nothing for him. And that Title shot will never happen now, especially since Truth just turned heel.

    Re: Where is Johnny Curtis?

    NXT really isn't much of a show, it's just a way to see how well FCW talent and future WWE superstars perform in front of bigger audiences and with WWE superstars. The only season where NXT really mattered was the first and partially the second, only because of the huge angles that happened after NXT ended. (Nexus, looked like Genesis was going to do something on RAW/SD but nothing happened)

    Re: Where is Johnny Curtis?

    Didn't watch NXT 4 but yeah, pretty odd that he won the show and two months on he hasn't been seen or heard of. I quite like his name so would be good to see more of him and see what he's capable of.

    Re: Where is Johnny Curtis?

    To be fair, a lot can happen in a short time, so there's no reason in like four months (for example) Curtis has already debuted and has a few non-NXT matches under him, he then can't be turned heel and then have the match then.

    Also, was there a time limit where by they had to use their shot up?

    Re: Where is Johnny Curtis?

    The Johnny Curtis thing is really weird. Even when NXT was going, it seemed like Clay and Bateman had the biggest upside, yet WWE were seemingly intent on Curtis winning.

    Only for them to then forget about Curtis after, and meanwhile Clay goes on to appear at WM.

    Quite funny how Wade Barrart is still the only NXT winner to get a decent run at things so far.

    Re: Where is Johnny Curtis?

    I have to agree with Kakarot, it would have made a load more sense for Bateman and Bryan to win seeing as though they had the best chemistry between Pro and Rookie (Chicks and America!). After NXT finished up, Bryan went on to do nothing but lose the US title, a run at the tag titles would at least got Bryan on TV

    "continuity" and "WWE" don't go together.

    Re: Where is Johnny Curtis?

    No idea. He should be brought in to Smackdown to actually do something cause he did win. Wade Barrett is the only winner that actually is on TV now.

    Re: Where is Johnny Curtis?

    I'd like to see him in some kind of "American Pyschos" tag team with Derrick Bateman. They seem like they have a good connection. However, we all know how impressed VKM is by the tag scene, so this is never happening!
