Re: PWINSIDER: NXT moving to USA Network

AEW will sweep these aside. Vince probably gonna put the belt on Dominik Dijakovic & bury the fuck outta The Dream

Re: PWINSIDER: NXT moving to USA Network

Thatīs a bit like counterprogramming The Avengers with The Green Lantern.

Re: PWINSIDER: NXT moving to USA Network

WWE must have calculated that NXT can compete with AEW but cannot do so on the Network. With the Fox deal and now this, tv is clearly where it's at and the Network is on the sideline for now.

By making the competition between NXT and AEW obvious, WWE have just handed AEW a bite-size target to beat. AEW does not have the PG restrictions that NXT has and they have talent that is at least competitive with NXT's for profile. AEW should not go the full deathmatch but if they play it right, NXT will look kinda goofy to exactly the demographic that it was designed to attract.

If AEW does win this, it will help the credibility of AEW a lot. WWE has a some other cards. It can bring in big stars from RAW/SD or use Evolve as an edgier brand

Re: PWINSIDER: NXT moving to USA Network

There are pros and cons of NXT potentially heading for the USA Network. We'll see which way the pendulum swings.

Either way, this fall heading into the new year will be one of the craziest and intense periods professional wrestling has ever experienced in years.

Buckle up.

Re: PWINSIDER: NXT moving to USA Network

If the rumours of Vince & Dunn have any meat in them, I wonder what's caused the loss of political power in the Levesque camp. And if any, is anyone going to stick the final knife in and make those details public? Some may point towards that NXT was struggling to grow under him anyway. But executives don't really tend to lose favour and pull unless they've made catastrophic errors that not even nepotism can ignore. And NXT's disappointing growth & direction since Dusty is something that nepotism can ignore (can just blame subordinates). And nonetheless, he's going to fall upwards anyway so there's probably not much point discussing it.

If the Vince & Dunn rumours are true, fucking get in. Brilliant. Regardless of backstage moves, Triple H had to be the face of NXT going 2 hours to rube fools who believe he's got a midas touch. He had to be the one putting the angles over on social medias and he had to be the one where success & failure of angles ended. Saying "Vince & Dunn" to anyone who was remotely interested in watching NXT over AEW is going to kill their enthusiasm in seconds.

Re: PWINSIDER: NXT moving to USA Network

WWE: fans are rejecting our version of wrestling and we’re tanking in ratings and attendance for our live shows

Also WWE: More wrestling! More live shows!

NXT was the one jewel in their crown - but seems like they are going to give that a little gut punch too

Re: PWINSIDER: NXT moving to USA Network

I hope it doesn't move to 2 hours. The reason I used to watch NxT was because it wasnt as long as Raw or Smackdown. 1 hour seemed a comfortable medium. Increasing it to 2 hours increases my chance at giving the show a miss. I already stopped watching Raw and Smackdown, at this rate I'll only be watching WWE for the PPV

Raw and Smackdown are two established brands (*not talking brand extension). So for them to do nxt vs. Aew.....I'd rather that be the case if they are going to do head to head. It's kind of bitter sweet. 20 years later...were in a new wrestling war and its between turner and usa.

If Vince and Dunn are involved and HHH loses his power over the direction of the show....I'm sorry....but AEW will be just fine!!!

I'll watch both, DVR both, support both.....but I'll be more interested in AEW.
