Disagreed with all due respect.

Re: PWINSIDER: NXT moving to USA Network

wonder what the taping schedule will be. Going weekly from Full Sail could easily burn out the crowd.

I could see them maybe doing a Florida rotation. Orlando one week, then Tampa, then Miami, then Tallahassee. Repeat those four on a cycle.

Honestly it feels like current NXT has gone on too long at Full Sail. I remember last year they taped about 2 or 3 months worth of TV in Atlanta and those shows were really good. And usually their shows on the road have a good vibe.

With them going live I hope they can find some kind of rotation of places that works for them.

Also this is going to screw so many people that are not getting pushed as it is. Not to mention the storylines will be heading to a worst direction.
This is what i'm concerned about, so will Vince start taking some control over NXT? please god just leave it to Triple H, soon as Vince touches it NXT will be screwed.

Re: PWINSIDER: NXT moving to USA Network

Vince taking control, turning it into a 2 hour show, definitely negative things, but I actually think the biggest impact of this will be on the WWE Network. NXT is one of the most popular shows on the Network, and if WWE take it away, I think they'll lose a lot of Network subscriptions.

I've actually gone off NXT a bit this year. Hard to put my finger on why, I still like a lot of the wrestlers on the roster. Once Ciampa went down to injury I pretty much drifted away.

Also, I think NXT are getting a bit too meta/self-indulgent. I liked the Gargano/Cole matches, but it definitely feels like an exercise in, "let's pop Meltzer and have those 5 star matches", rather than feeling like a genuinely heated fight. That's something that the Gargano vs. Ciampa feud got right, earning those snowflakes while still making you invest in the feud/story.

Actually, if nothing else, Vince taking control may make NXT shift away from that "indy" mindset. It's still going to be shit because of all the other changes he'll make creatively, but at least it'll probably stop the gymnastics exhibitions.

Re: PWINSIDER: NXT moving to USA Network

Be interesting to see how it goes down with fox. I can see a legal sitch if SD stars are used on a different network for the same kind of show. Even if it's only providing another show to a network you just paid big bucks to beat surely that would get them pissed.

As Dave Scherer and I discussed on the PWInsider.com Elite section earlier this week, there have been a lot of rumblings about WWE taking WWE NXT off the WWE Network and placing it elsewhere, with FOX Sports 1 being the most speculated possibility.

However, over the last 48 hours, PWInsider.com has been told thereís a pitch for the series to be moved to Wednesdays on the USA Network starting this October, with the idea NXT would be graduate into a live two-hour series from Full Sail University in Florida. The idea would be for the series to start in that form on 10/2, which of course is the same date that All Elite Wrestling launches its own weekly series on TNT.

Should this pitch move forward, the head to head would be the closest approximation of the old Monday Night War between WCW and the then-WWF since March 2001 as there would be two wrestling brands on similar cable broadcast platforms at the same time. It should be noted that with the evolution in technology, such as streaming, DVRs, etc. 2019 viewing would change the outlook of the head to head aspect with metrics being measured much differently than just the Nielsen ratings, as was the norm in the Monday Night War era.

It should be noted Impact Wrestling did attempt to go head to head with Monday Night Raw several years ago, but the idea died a fast death with Impact retreating back to its former home of Thursdays on SpikeTV after just ten weeks.

The USA Network aired an episode of WWE NXT on 12/13/17 as part of a "WWE Week", bringing in 841,000 overnight viewers.

WWE officials have not, as of yet, responded to a PWInsider.com request for comment.

While nothing is "official" yet, the ball is certainly in play. Stay tuned.

----

Meltzer reported that the Vince and Dunn are going to run the show.

RIP NXT.
fuck fuck fuck! Vince will fucking ruin NXT. It's like he doesnt seem to realize that Triple H is doing an amazing enough job, dont fuck with it. There's a reason NXT is so much more respected than Raw and SD and the common denominator is VINCE has nothing to do with the former.

At this point, we have to call Vince senile. Typical old fart who cant realize his time is done. He's being just like his old man. When Vince took over, he did things that his father would have never done (taking it global) because his father was stuck in a certain mindset and you can't teach old dogs new tricks. And here Vince jr is making the same damn mistake in not realizing how his mindset is fucking up the entire WWE.

Is THE GAME losing his game behind the scenes?
He's not "losing" his game. Vince did the same thing to Shane when Shane came up with the idea of reviving ECW (albeit as an online brand). Once Vince realized it had generated interest from SyFy, he kicked Shane off of it and took it over. He's just a typical over-controlling owner who doesnt know how to delegate nor trust his best employees. Triple H is the fucking reason NXT has been so amazing the last few years yet old dummy Vince thinks it wise to take over. Just an old man with too much damn time on his hands.

Totally disagree. NXT has still been good and Gargano Ciampa was a great feud though long-winded.

Guess I can soon say goodbye to one of the last WWE shows I mostly enjoy on a consistent basis.
the ashes you get to build anew, I look forward to NXT2 which will have to be built with actual PC talent since VD have the Indy star roster now.
