FCW 15 Champion: Richie Steamboat
Tag Champions: Husky and Bo Rotunda
Women's Champion/Queen of FCW: Raquel Diaz/Guerrero
Not a bad role call of champs, but the FCW 15 has far surpassed the FCW world title by now. Seth Rollins, Damien Sandow, and Richie have done more over the past year than Leo Kruger, Bo Rotunda, and whoever else has held the world title in the same time period.
Kassius Ohno hasn't debuted yet.
Antonio Cesaro is putting on competitive matches very often. He had a good one recently against Xavier Woods (Consequences Creed).
Dean Ambrose hasn't been used heavily lately, but he's building up to another match with William Regal. Regal is putting him over heavily on commentary. It's sick and awesome at the same time how he talks about Ambrose being the guy that's going to end his career.
Seth Rollins has fallen back in importance, but you have to give others time, I guess. I'd rather see him as world champion, but he should be on the main WWE roster soon anyway.
Mike Dalton is really making a name for himself. He defeated Kruger recently in a non-title match. I still think he looks like Michael Shane aka Matt Bentley.
Rick Victor is starting to become more important. I never noticed him last year. He looks a lot like Waylon Mercy and needs to steal that gimmick.
Corey Graves is also starting to get more TV time. He's the former Sterling James Keenan. I don't know why ROH didn't use him when they could have signed him years ago. FCW could have given him more time to team with Cottonwood or that other 7 ft guy...forgetting his name. Graves also had a valet for 1 match last year, but that ended too soon.
Briley Pierce is injured (not sure if it's just storyline or not), so he and Brad Maddox had their tag titles removed. They were a very entertaining team and seemed to be turning baby-face. Too bad they split, because neither is good on his own.
There are others on the roster, but most are boring. Xavier Woods is good, but his motivational speaker gimmick is not. Damien Sandow is okay, but he looks silly with the new pink and purple gear. Audrey Marie is decent, but the WWE needs to ban the multi-spin headscissors move that so many divas use now. Brittani Knight has debuted in a storyline with Rollins. Should be interesting. Byron Saxton is almost recovered from injury, but he should just stay on commentary.
FCW was the best fed in 2011, and they're still going strong.
