I honestly feel this is going to backfire on WWE even if they use main roster talent all NXT will be is the C show.. don't want it to happen because I like nxt but a year and half from now I can see Vince kill of NXT and Smackdown moves from Friday to Wednesday on Fox

Every report I heard is that nxt will be live from Full Sail
Yeah, but they are absolutely sending main roster guys to NXT. I fully expect the full show to be stacked, shit like Rollins/Gargano, UE/CLUB.

Even with all of that, I'm skeptical it pulls a big rating because outside of the hard cores, those are not dream matches. Hell, they aren't even dream matches to me anymore because guys like Rollins are so overexposed. They could bring main roster storylines to NXT entirely, but then you are overexposing the product EVEN more, which is going to stifle fox ratings as well which has to be the priority.

Why does Kevin Dunn like doing this crap? And for what? What will happen to Triple H the moment he loses power?

The one episode of nxt that aired on usa barely got any advertising and it was a random taped show that aired simultaneously on wwe network and drew 841,000 viewers live.

How many do people expect AEW to average. Meltzer says TNT expect 300-400,000 on average but that seems far too low an expectation

Considering that it looks like two networks are bidding on it that should result in the highest bidder winning thus more money. Money alone will be worth it. They ain't making anything airing it on network but still having to pay costs to tape.

Nxt was eventually going live anyway. If raw and SD are worth that much to tv executives surely nxt was worth airing live too. There was lots of talk of nxt going to fox more than a year ago, long before AEW even existed

Go on twitter and start liking and later unliking tweets that were saying he'd be a better alternative to Vince's shenanigans.

Oh wait...that already happened, didn't it?

If Vince puts one finger on it, it'd be like Zurg corrupting the Unimind in the Buzz Lightyear movie. Yes, I'm a 90s nerd.
