Bo's victory was treated like a major upset, while the main roster talents who lost in the tag tournament were not. Percy and Bateman both got screwed when NXT became developmental, as it saw them losing a lot of TV time. They need all the wins they can get, especially Riley, who imo should be much higher up the card than he currently is.
I feel that those guys should not be booked like "one of the boys" when they show up on NXT. Their presence on the show should be a big deal, and if they DO lose, it should be treated as a huge upset.
