Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion Thread
I absolutely despise the new NXT. It's not even doing much for the FCW talent either to be honest. 3 Minute matches infront of 300 people doesn't do much, I don't think. Plus NXT was twice as good when Regal was the GM and they had they whacky storylines, was probably the best show in North America with only Impact coming close. At least with that, they were developing characters and feuds with superstars people were already familiar with - Maxine, Bateman, Kaitlyn, Curtis, Watson, Young and O'Neil (look what NXT did for them), Kidd and McGillicutty as well. Also look what FCW did for the likes of Bo, Rollins, Cesaro etc - Kept them fit an healthy, developed their skills, allowed them to adapt and provided opportunities for gimmicks to be tried and tested. No gimmicks are being exposed either, other than Bray Wyatt, but that can't really count seeing as it's only video packages.
The new NXT serves very little purpose, IMO, especially compared to the former NXT and FCW. Bad decision, IMO, by the WWE.
