The first season of NXT began airing on SyFy on February 23, 2010 and ended on June 1, 2010. The majority of the season 1 cast was revealed a week before the premiere on the series finale of XCW. However, beofre the season premiere aired, Kyle Kallin's Pro was changed with William Kapphan replacing the announced Mikhail Schmalzried.

Near the end of the season, several changes were made to the original plan of the format. The season was shortened from the planned 17 episodes to 15 episodes. In the first elimination episode on May 11, both Shane Huffman and Dan were eliminated by IWE Management and removed from that night's pros' Poll after both made comments about wanting to be voted off. The show ended with three eliminations, with Kallin ranked last in the Poll. Michael Ferry was released on May 21 for refusing rehab after violating IWE's Wellness Program. Subsequent Pro's Polls were held without him for the rest of the season.

The winner of season 1 was Daniel Gonzalez, who began performing on the Meltdown brand. Immediately after the conclusion of season 1, the Rookies were used in a storyline that had them forming an alliance called the Nexus. Led by Gonzalez, the group invaded the Meltdown show in an attempt to gain IWE contracts for the losers of NXT season 1. The invasion consisted of the group attacking then IWE Champion Dustin Simpson as well as other wrestlers and IWE personnel. Dan was (legitimately) released from his contract when he strangled ring announcer Justin Roberts with Roberts' tire during the first ambush, which IWE reportedly felt was too violent for the TV-PG programming. His release was put in a storyline, where the rest of the NXT rookies kicked him out of the group for showing remorse for his actions and declared he wouldn't be seen in the IWE ever again. The group were eventually all signed to Meltdown, but continued their disruption of the show, including an attack on IWE Chairman ???. Dan eventually returned to IWE two months later at SummerSlam, when he became the suprise seventh member of Team IWE in a seven-on-seven elimination tag team match against The Nexus
