Lol, what? If Cole were free he would probably be an EVP in the company.

Vince doesn’t need to be involved. This is happening because the WWE have caused dissent in their fan-base. To Vince’s ego, he is really responsible for AEW happening. There’s no way a promotion starts up around Cody, the Bucks and Omega without fandom being tested.

Vince’s ego needs to see this as his boutique brand that he doesn’t book. This is where he delegates and can still take the overarching credit.

This also proves to stakeholders that Triple H can run his own weekly show, meaning he can step further back when the XFL starts up. It also gives Raw and SmackDown talent a place to work and refresh themselves.

This could be great for so many aspects of his business if he doesn’t run it like the bigger two shows.

From WWE's point of view, even if AEW beat NXT, while they will be furious behind the scenes, they can spin it that it's only their third brand and Smackdown and Raw are above them both.
And the perception of AEW if it can’t beat WWE’s “developmental” brand is going to take a MAJOR hit.

Re: NXT moves to USA Network on Sept. 18. Wednesday nights live from Full Sail University.

Let look at this that it been plans for sometime to move NXT off the network to main TV it was all ready tested before when NXT air on USA Network once and did well. Nothing much is here is charging with NXT outside of it going two hour,Live and moving to the USA Network. Wednesday night has been NXT's night for years and it does help NXT with some footing for that Night

AEW does facing some major with themselves with the roster being very meh and possible egos backstage it could be major probleams for them.

Excellent post.

The egos in AEW are untested. Bands break up, guys. What happens if they start getting data back that says that one of the EVPs’ ideas all seem to be misses? How are they going to take being told they can’t do a certain thing anymore? What happens if someone doesn’t click with larger audiences on TV like they do with the nerds that were already buying tickets?

It will be interesting to see how AEW deals with conflict. WCW started imploding as soon as they started losing.

Sign Enzo & Cass, keep Breeze & Fandango down permanently, send Sami back along with a couple of the following guys: Cesaro/KO/Nakamura/Finn/Roode/Gable/Crews and at least one of Asuka/Ember/Dana for women. Then you'll have a solid group for that third brand.

Shows attended:
Smackdown 7/19/11
Raw 2/20/12
Elimination Chamber 2/23/14
Raw 10/24/16
Royal Rumble 1/29/17

If they're getting rid of 205 live they should move the roster and the WWE Cruiserweight Championship to NXT. They're talking about doing more NXT UK type shows around the world than maybe use them like the nwa territories and the wrestlers from those smaller NXTs can work the main NXT Too. Also maybe use evolve wrestling too for the 2 hour NXT on the usa network

It doesn’t make sense for NXT to dramatically change. Common sense could have been applied here, except you can’t always apply common sense to WWE.

This is BAD news for AEW. If they go up against proper wrestling, their silly lower-card antics are going to sink them fast.

Hunter revealed that NXT going to USA(or another TV channel) has been in the works for two years.

No doubt. That’s how they can turn “developmental” from a loss-leader into an ATM. It’s also the closest thing WWE is actually going to have to a separate “brand.” Raw and SmackDown are both Coke. This could at least be Sprite.

In a perfect world, this might encourage Vince to take a chance on Fanta.

This isn't such a bad idea IF NXT remains the excellent product it has been.
