Re: PWINSIDER: NXT moving to USA Network

Well, NXT was fun while it lasted.

Now, it is just going to become Yellow Raw.

Re: PWINSIDER: NXT moving to USA Network

i LOVE the new narrative that NXT hasn't been a shitshow for 3 years

You should all be happy about this, this is their last chance to actually be good again.

If Gargano is the man you think he is, he should lead the WAR with no problems

How is there any chance of a good product with Vince involved?

Well, I figure between the 5hrs he already does, and the XFL coming back, he wouldn't be as hands on as he normally is. But given the fact he doesn't sleep, and he's a insane control freak, I now realise I was wrong.

So, I'm going to shut up and sit back, and enjoy the death of NXT.

NXT hasn't been really good since mid 2016. It taken me 3 years to realized on how bad it really gotten. Surely, we got good wrestlers and classic matches. But in 2018-2019 has been at it's max worst. The in ring mind has went down a lot and the lack of selling really shows in the main events.

Their biggest problem is that hardly anyone has a character something the main roster has with a selective few.

Paige, Charlotte, Becky, Sasha, Bayley, The Shield, and few others were lucky Dustin was still alive when NXT was at it's best.

NXT really hasn't been that exciting in years.

Re: PWINSIDER: NXT moving to USA Network

This isn't about competition. This is solely about chipping away at enough of AEW's audience so that they never approach raw or smackdown's ratings. Imagine vince's indignity if AEW does actually beat one of his two main shows. If I want to see nxt, I'll download it. I'll be completely in AEW's corner. Hopefully the hardcore fans will follow suit and remember that nxt is the demon seed of vince and part of the problem that is wwe.

Kinda agree with this. NXT in past(start from 2013) was kinda like bunch of noob wrestlers or performer who consumed with hunger to make their own name because they came from unknown place only recognize by certain people but now it's look more similar, only have outstanding match at Takeover but Triple H fail to cover one big major thing, character development. Most of this current NXT guys especially come from Indies were never perform at national TV or worldwide scale audiences. Main roster need quick connection between the performer with live audiences in arena and home, this is why Street Profit might be survive since they're not perform yet but at least they get more time to do cable appearance, same things with Aleister, they try to reduce his in ring performance so it won't exposed him.

This is what that missing from NXT now,they even remove some of this clip from YouTube.

As noted earlier, via PWInsider, there has been a pitch over the last 48 hours to have the WWE NXT series moved to Wednesday nights on the USA Network. The show would air from 8pm - 10pm ET, putting it head-to-head with AEW's new weekly TNT series. The report stated that NXT would begin airing on USA the same night as AEW premieres on TNT - Wednesday, October 2. It was also noted that the idea is that the series would graduate to a weekly, live two-hour show from Full Sail Live on the campus of Full Sail University in Winter Park, FL.

In an update, word now is that NXT could premiere on the USA Network before October 2. Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that Vince McMahon is looking to "get the jump," which means NXT would premiere before AEW on TNT.

It was also reported that WWE officials have discussed airing NXT live each week from Full Sail, but they have also discussed going live every other week.

We've noted how there have been talks of NXT airing on FS1 each Wednesday night to go along with SmackDown moving to Fox on Friday, October 4. Apparently one of the issues with NXT airing on FS1 was the Big East Basketball schedule. The 2018-2019 season ran from December-March and FS1 aired more than 100 games, including all 90 regular season games. There's no word yet on if there would be similar issues with the USA schedule, but it doesn't look to be a problem.

It was noted on Observer Radio that the USA Network is in more homes than FS1, and is a higher-rated base. USA currently reaches around 91 million homes in the United States while FS1 is available in around 85 million homes. One advantage of airing NXT on FS1 would be the heavy promotion from Fox. We know that Fox has committed to heavy promotion for WWE once SmackDown premieres in October, but it's possible they would cut back on that promotion if USA is airing 2 of the 3 weekly live in-ring shows WWE has. FS1 will still air the weekly WWE in-studio show on Tuesday nights. Meltzer noted that a big plus for WWE taking NXT to USA was that WWE fans are already very familiar with watching the product on USA.

As noted, USA previously aired a special NXT episode on Wednesday, December 13, 2017 as a part of their WWE Week programming. That show drew 841,000 viewers.

There's no word yet on what NXT on cable would mean for the WWE Network line-up. A third hour airing each week on the WWE Network seems unlikely as that could hurt the product, but dropping the exclusive show could upset some of the WWE Network subscribers. Many international viewers rely on the WWE Network to get their weekly NXT viewing, and WWE still airs the show internationally with TV providers such as OSN in the Middle East, Sky Italia in Italy, J Sports in Japan, Viva Sports in Mexico, Fox Sports Latinoamérica in Latin America, Fox Asia in The Philippines, and Sony TEN in India, among others.

NXT taped another round of TV episodes on Thursday at Full Sail Live, which should carry them to the September 11 airing. They have a set of sold out back-to-back TV tapings scheduled for mid-September, but they could always cancel the second night and use the first night to tape them up to the live USA Network premiere.

An announcement on the future of NXT is expected very soon as we're already under two months away from what could be the kickoff to the WWE vs. AEW Wednesday Night Wars. There's no official confirmation that NXT is headed to USA or FS1, but multiple sources are reporting that everything is in play. Meltzer pointed to how the TV industry usually moves at a slow pace when making decisions and major moves like this, but things would have to move fairly fast as we get closer to the first of October.
The key was, USN have more homes than FS1, but the biggest blunder that might be happen is WWE will lose the Network subscription or if it fail, this show would end like ECWWE, seems ironic because ECWWE was defunct about 10 years ago and replaced by NXT (gameshow format).
If it goes off the network me and my mate save £5 a month. Nxt is the only reason we still use the network

Genuinely terrible news. I watch NXT religiously because it's different. If it's really Dumb and Vince running the show I'm going to move to AEW.
