..as well as their other championships.

Does FCW still go on, it's just not taped?

Is NXT in the works to get the championships moved over to that "brand" once the show gets over?

I didn't know FCW was over I thought that was just a rumor. NXT is a completely different show still is it not?

The same thing that happened to the ROH title when it was off the air. It gets defended at live events. It won't transfer to NXT, but there is the possibility that NXT will crown its own champion (which will no doubt show up on FCW shows too) at some point.

Huh? NXT is now FCW?

I just saw a file on XWT for an episode of FCW for July 1st.

They should make the NXT 15 Championship. That would be entertaining.

FCW is still running. It's just off TV. I would like to see FCW titles defended on NXT, but WWE still doesn't aknowgledge FCW, so, sadly, won't happen.

I accept Hayley Williams rep.

Makes sense to keep around FCW to let the development guys work in a non-televised house show environment. With everything moving to NXT, I wonder if they'll re-brand the titles.

Re: What happens with the FCW Championship now that NXT is FCW?

I don't think NXT should have titles, because there are too many guys already technically on the main roster who show up on NXT.

Also it creates so many contradictions. The NXT Superstars want to prove they're "the best", so that they can move up to RAW or SmackDown. A Championship shows that they are "the best", but it would ground them on NXT. Once they've proven that they're ready to be called up to one of the main brands, they'd have to drop the Championship to someone, which would mean that they are no longer "the best".

It works with FCW because "Florida Championship Wrestling" at least gives the pretense of being an indy fed in kayfabe. NXT by comparison is "WWE NXT", so it doesn't work.
