Future of WWE NXT, More former WWE stars getting jobs at NXT?

http://dailywrestlingnews.com/future...ting-jobs-nxt/

Quote:
A WWE source notes that it will be interesting to see how things develop with WWE’s developmental territory NXT. WWE views the show differently now that there are more people watching it on the Network. The primary focus with NXT will always be to develop future stars for the main roster but it’s not the sole focus now that NXT has essentially turned into its own brand.

Word is that Triple H has been talking about bringing back a few acts from WWE’s past to have them work as NXT regulars. He was pleased with Too Cool’s performance at NXT Arrival and is looking for more acts from the past that can be mixed in with the NXT rookies.

Re: Future of WWE NXT, More former WWE stars getting jobs at NXT?

if this dirtsheet article holds true...i hope it's an every once and awhile thing and not an every show thing.

I think it could be a good thing for a guy like Chris Jericho, RVD or maybe even Rey Mysterio to come back down to nxt to job to the upcomers...but including them on the active roster is meh in my opinion.

maybe feature a legend as GM, to give it casual fan appeal.

Re: Future of WWE NXT, More former WWE stars getting jobs at NXT?

"Dailywrestlingnews" is worse than Wrestlezone. Complete and utter garbage, not even 1% reliable. They have no inside source within WWE, all made up reports. I have no idea why OP keeps posting shit from that site, even though I've red repped him multiple times for doing it. Do you work for the website or something, Wagg?

Tool cool performance wasn't even all that good to begin with and most importantly the crowd couldn't give a shit. Nostalgia acts work only when Crowds care for them, that's why Goldust was a success and so was NAO, Too cool was not. I highly highly doubt Triple h was impressed at all. In anycase, don't waste your time discussing based on this "report".

Re: Future of WWE NXT, More former WWE stars getting jobs at NXT?

^Chavo, Holly, Helms, Rhyno are all malcontents who you'd want to keep away from the developmentals. Victoria isn't going to leave her business interests in Chicago for a developmental veteran gig.

With HHH giving the speech about how call-ups will be even more infrequent but that shouldn't matter since they're all getting more exposure via the network - I wonder if their pay is going up accordingly. Because getting called up to the main roster usually meant from going from $500-$750/week to the low level main roster guarantee of $75,000 before house gates and PPV and Merch bonuses and the like.

I don't mind this idea if it means a short term contract or something.

Re: Future of WWE NXT, More former WWE stars getting jobs at NXT?

With TNA cutting back the talent budget and JJ supposedly starting something up this year. I would snatch up some indy guys with value. I would try to get Styles and Daniels and Kaz in and just let them know there run in NXT would be shortlived they just want them to help the brand out and teach them a few things about WWE than put them on the main roster after 5 or 6 months. I would try to dry up the indy talent pull and expand NXT to two hours to really go head to head with Impact.

a great idea. Gives lots of tips and motivation to the new talent and gives vets a job and facet to pass on their knowledge.

If this really does happen, some of the veterans coming to NXT would be a great help to all the the stars of NXT learn more of the art of wrestling.
