Shawn Spears looks totally different that chair shot to codys head was a good 10 lol he's bringing something new with Tully Blanchard as his advisor , looking forward to there match .

Anyone see moxley promo I'm gonna break fucking your jaws learn your Styles and I'm gonna fuck you up cause I ain't playing that had me on the edge of my couch like fucking yes. I only started watching when he joined so I had to watch it from the beginning, nice to see the lucha bros getting over big time.

CERO MIEDO! Im getting it as a tattoo I'm checking out different artist drawings as I type.

Peace.

And they’re going to have main roster stars appear on NXT, which, while making it must see tv in a sense over the other two shows, definitely will influence the developmental aspect of NXT and possibly affect the viewership of Raw and Smackdown in a negative way.

Basically, AEW can keep focusing on itself for now without much worry.
WWE wants to buy Fite IMO on order to make legit indie wrestling the network draw for the NXT fan, which was always a make believe indie by design in a way. Evolve already sold out and is basically a WWE feeder org now. I suspect any indies who would want to use the WWE network to stream their shows would have to sign agreements where wwe had first dibs on any rostered talent should AEW be showing interest. Matt Riddle was getting interest from Japan and then all of a sudden WWE was ready for an offer - gee, I wonder how they got wind of Japan interest.

And besides that - AEW will be a two hour time commitment once a week. WWE extending NXT to two hours, making it live and touring with it will get Vince involved as will sending down "top stars" - which means it will be two more hours of main roster storylines that fans will have to keep up with in order to get the full viewing picture.

NXT largely existing in it's own stand alone experience was a large part of it's appeal. One hour was another. Now every wrestler will have to be on every show and/or more likely Fox will want SDL names on FS1 to boost ratings. So with the hard brand split, NXT will become the secondary show of SDL.

But Vince is putting Evolve on the WWE Network now - that is the new "Hey, we're indies too" show.
You can't be Indy when you work for the beast thats killing you. What a pity that EVOLVE doesn't realize that.

Wont matter. AEW will still benefit from whatever it would have. The fresh factor itself at the moment will draw in the curious fan on TNT.

Being live will damage subscribers plus, it will not be the same good NXT, ...it will be a diluted product and its appeal to get new viewers by adding guys like Titus O Neil, Nakamura, Asuka will seem desperate and will slowly rub grease off. You start adding more WWE main roster guys and you again lose more NXT hardcore fans.

Most NXT hardcores like AEW and theyll see AEW first. This is a loss for NXT, the machine that is run by the gutless and bloodless WWE remember?

Not a huge impact. Right now NXT roster just isn't deep enough to compete with AEW. Yes people like Cole, Johnny, Riddle, Dream some of the woman and tag teams. But it's not gonna be able to compete with Jericho, Moxley, Omega, Rhodes, Page, MJF, Pac, Spears etc. Maybe at one point a few years ago NXT roster was deep enough to compete. But after Vince continues to gut it and does very little with guys he calls up. That said Vince probably knows it's not deep enough to compete. So I wonder if more talent not being used with be sent down to make it more competitive?

It'll mean nothing considering NXT's quality has gone downhill the last 3+ years, not to mention hardly anyone watches it on the Network now as is in addition to the fact that they're going to be on a network with an average high of 500K vs a network in TNT with an average high of several Million viewers depending on the show. The reach of FS1 is way too low for NXT to be considered a threat and the previously mentioned quality speaks volumes.

Okay I want to revise something NXT is going to be live that will be interesting but that's going to be a nail in the coffin for NXT trust me when I say this.

These guys don't understand that first of all TNT is in more homes but Secondly AEW is the true legit real independent wrestling company versus NXT which is basically catering to WWE and we know where that usually takes its talents.

Also most NXT fans anyways are AEW fans or will soon be, so they're going to have to decide to pick one, and you know where they're going.

Hate to sat this, but stupid move Vince...say bye to lots of WWE Network subscribers. Even to some fans who will switch to AEW.

AEW doesn't have to worry about most of its loyal fans going to NXT trust me.

The thing with the Monday night wars, is most wrestling fans were watching BOTH shows.

Its just a matter of which shows people will watch more of live.

People who like both will find ways to watch both, people found a away to watch bot nitro and Raw in 1997, they will find ways to watch AEW and nXt.

Honestly, this is good for AEW, this will help motivate them to make a show that people don't want to see what is happening on nXt, and vice versa... its good stuff
