Should NXT begin running their own supercards?

NXT is basically ran as a separate promotions from WWE. WWE doesn't market it as a WWE Brand, but as a developmental promotions, same as they did FCW.

However, unlike FCW, NXT has been given a lot of exposure. I believe that WWE would do well to bank on that exposure.

I think they should put on 4 NXT supercards every year, much like WWE has the "big four".

So, there would be 8 "Takeover" shows yearly, and then 4 separate named annual supercards. The way I see it, they could have the shows on the same weekends as WWE's main supercards Royal Rumble, Wrestlemania, Summerslam, and Surivor Series. They could be marketed as part of the events for the weekend. NXT supercard on Saturday, the main show on Sunday, Raw and Smackdown on Monday and Tuesday.

For Wrestlemania weekend, I would say the NXT show would be on Friday, instead of Saturday, since saturday is the HOF ceremony.

NXT is not a separate promotion and isn't intended to be. As bad as the overall show is, it's just another WWE show which is presented differently from RAW/SmackDown. The TakeOvers are enough.

Nah, one of the advantages NXT has is the time to build feuds between Takeovers, having one a month would take that and it's not like they are drawing all that good these days.

The Takeover specials are their supercards. They typically have a killer show from top to bottom.

No, because then I'd have to see NXT with white ropes more often and it's already hard to fathom they can even put on the shows they do with the white ropes every TakeOver.

NXT is run as a third brand, distinct from SD and RAW but very much as a "superindy" promotion and with very little emphasis on being a development organization - certainly as far as the tv shows go.

the tv shows/takeovers that they have now are enough

What’s the difference between a “supercard” and the regular Takeovers?

How will you put up supercard when talents move up to Raw/SD?

Wrestlemania is an example of a supercard. A normal PPV isn't considered one.

Supercard is reserved for larger flagship events.

I wouldn't consider Takeover to be a supercard. A supercard is typically a once a year event distinct from other PPV and special events, and treated like a flagship show.

Takeover held multiple times a year, and none of them are really distinct from the other. A supercard should feel like the biggest event of the year. None of the Takeovers do. They just feel like normal PPV's. Yes, all of them have been amazing, but that is true about many low-level ppvs for several promotions.
Being a good show doesn't necessarily make them supercards. Supcards should feel like they are distinctly better than normal PPV and special events.

Isn't that basically what the takeovers are? Supercards?
