Re: The NXT Title
I don't mind the idea OP... like you said - it would be pre-show (hell, even if it doesn't make the youtube preshow that's okay), and it would just get them out there in a PPV setting. Just because the fans aren't all in yet / seated, that's okay. And who knows, even if one set of eyes sees them on a given day and becomes a fan, then it would be beneficial.
I don't think the crowd, still coming into the arena or buying merchandise / food, will 'shit' on the performers. It's all before the show, people know that not much should be expected at that point in the night.
