WWE News: NXT Results - Season Two announced, Pro & Rookie pairings revealed

There will be a second season of WWE's NXT Rookie competition on Tuesday nights. WWE announced details on Season Two during tonight's Season One finale.

The only returning Pro from Season One is The Miz, who will be paired with FCW developmental wrestler Alex Riley. Riley has worked WWE house shows previously, but has not been called up to the main roster.

One announced change for Season Two is that voting will be split 50 percent between the NXT Pros and WWE fans.

The complete list of NXT Pros and Rookies pairings for Season Two beginning next week is as follows:

NXT Rookie - WWE Pro

-- Alex Riley mentored by The Miz.

-- Husky Harris mentored by Cody Rhodes. Harris is Duke Rotunda in FCW, the son of "I.R.S." Mike Rotunda.

-- Eli Cottonwood mentored by John Morrison.

-- Percy Watson mentored by MVP. Watson and Season One NXT Rookie Darren Young were the "South Beach Boys" in FCW.

-- Titus O'Neil mentored by Zack Ryder.

-- Kaval (Low-Ki) mentored by Women's champion(s) Layla and Michelle McCool.

-- Lucky Cannon (Johnny Prime) mentored by Mark Henry.

-- Michael McGillicutty mentored by Kofi Kingston. McGillicutty is Joe Hennig, the son of Mr. Perfect Curt Hennig.
