Re: PWINSIDER: NXT moving to USA Network

Well Dream was in Rollins-esque suck-up mode a while back so maybe that will help with Vince. It's doing wonders for Rollins after all

Re: PWINSIDER: NXT moving to USA Network

I should mention with the Vince and Kevin stuff, that PWInsider never mentioned that in their report, and when the FS1 rumors were going around, they outright said that Vince and Kevin wouldn't have a hand in it, contradicting Dave's report at the time. So its a wait and see for me.

It was brought up elsewhere, but they can't really risk making too many boneheaded decisions in regards to NXT either. Because a pissed off NXT fan is significantly more likely to just change the channel over to AEW, which will be airing at the same time. Where RAW and SD can get away with pissing people off because there are no real alternatives on that night.

Yep. Really has the potential to be the next megastar. He's the guy with the all the talent and has the character for the times.

But geezer and pet beaver won't "get him."

SO DREAM, IN THIS SEGMENT YOU'RE GONNA BE A MALE STRIPPER IT'S SUCH GOOD SHIT!

It will only take him so far. The much bigger danger is that he's going to lose everything he is because he'll have to work with all these ridiculous scripts and get overexposed to the four corners of the world. Even if he isn't buried booking wise, he'll lose what makes him special and thus his potential to define the industry.

Yes but you're thinking from a fan's perspective, as if Vince and co KNOW that THEY are the problem. Somehow I don't think they do. In fact, going up against direct competition I could absolutely believe Vince would want to get involved and show the world how his GOOD SHIT personal touch is better than AEW's.

Having said that, yes we are jumping the gun here on this rumor, I agree. But the idea of it is also believable.

Re: PWINSIDER: NXT moving to USA Network

NXT has been awful for 3 plus years, this is the LAST chance to turn it around and actually put on a show worth watching. I wish them good luck, truly.

Now let us pray that VKM realises Grapples is the dirt worst, and he should be jobbed out to Dain or Matha, or even that big dude Stoke is managing.

Re: PWINSIDER: NXT moving to USA Network

Triple H spent years making NXT the best going thing in the WWE, and now Vince is ready to take it over!

I wonder how he feels, if this rumor holds any weight.

Re: PWINSIDER: NXT moving to USA Network

Two fairly mediocre brands are going to be competing for a dwindling and near non existent market share. Will be fun to observe.

Re: PWINSIDER: NXT moving to USA Network

Naa, the weekly NXT start look downhill, some fans call Triple H is savior for WWE but to think he can't focus with certain talent like 4HW in women's division, K O, Sami Zayn, Balor, Neville and Joe at male division in past.

Who is the original talent now beside Velveteen Dream? NXT at least can produce 5-6 talents and can work at main roster in future.

Also, USNetwork is more available than FS1, so it's make sense if NXT want go aboard to TV but as for Dunn, jezz, I hope Vince doesn't give him full control

Remember this
