NXT Reportedly To Use WWE Main Roster Talent If They Go Head-To-Head With AEW

Quote:
As previously reported, Fox held a meeting last week with their affiliates to discuss the 2019 fall schedule. During the meeting, Fox confirmed that there are talks about moving NXT to one of their channels.

There has been speculation that NXT may air on FS1 and go head-to-head with AEW. AEW will start on TNT this fall, and is rumored to be airing live on Wednesday nights starting on October 2nd.

Dave Meltzer noted on the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE is "absolutely" planning to use main roster talent on the NXT show if they go head-to-head with AEW. One issue with NXT airing on Wednesday nights is that FS1 airs Big East College Basketball that night during their season.

In its current format, NXT has been airing on the WWE Network since 2014. There was a special airing of NXT on the USA Network as part of "WWE Week" in December of 2017, which averaged 841,000 viewers. RAW that week averaged 2.684 million viewers, while SmackDown pulled in 2.481 million, so NXT averaged less than a third of what the two flagship shows drew.

In addition to NXT possibly airing on FS1, a weekly WWE studio show will air on the network Tuesdays with Renee Young as the host.

This would be awful for them hoping to sign talent. There's already so many guys on that roster that don't get an opportunity on TakeOvers or NXT TV in general. It would severely halt the development they hope to achieve with any of the new talent, especially any PC guys who can kiss their chance of ever getting a shot goodbye at that rate.

Lower card guys that don't get opportunities? Sure. Guys that we see every week? Fuck off.

But if the goal is to draw ratings then obviously it's going to be the same handful of people WWE wrongly thinks are draws.

I wanna see some random shit like Heath Slater vs Roderick Strong going for 20 minutes, not Ziggler vs Cole.

Shilling for Xia Li, Aliyah, Bianca Belair and Rhea Ripley

So they're sending Asuka back to NXT. How humiliating.

Might as well. NXT is so sterile and boring at this point that they'll have to do something. Nobody is checking for NXT on FS1 if it's competing with AEW on TNT. Their weekly shows suck. I wouldn't be surprised if they send the stars they aren't using over there. Vince and HHH do not want to lose to AEW on a weekly basis (even though TNT have a stronger reach than FS1) so they'll go to these lengths to do it.

I'm all for this is they keep NXT as NXT and don't turn it into Raw 3.0. AJ Styles vs. Kushida in AJ's NXT debut, the Usos vs. reDRagon(O'Reilly and Fish), Bryan vs. Cole, Asuka vs. Shirai would be fantastic. WWE establishes the show with main event talent and showcases NXT talent to a new audience.

Unfortunately we'll probably get 20 minute promos, talk show segments and food fights.

I guess there's still hope of a Kairi Sane/Io Shirai match taking place under the NXT banner.
