Re: Is NXT UK a flop?
It did what it was supposed to do and that was cause damage on the hot British Indie scene at the time and to combat World of Sport. And it did that sadly, it basically took most of the best UK indie talent and keeps them under the WWE Umbrella. The sad thing 90% of that talent aren't going to leave there and be lucky to get a sniff of NXT and main roster.
Let's be real who from there will take the step up to NXT and then the main roster, Tyler Bate (Trent Seven only if WWE have plans for them as a tag team), Jordan Devlin, Walter and his group (only if Walter signs full time, the rest of his group are stuck with him and won't make it without him imo), Kay Lee Ray, Toni Storm, Piper Niven and maybe Xia Brookside as a favor to her dad. Besides that zilch.
I would say it's definitely at the bottom of WWE's more important things along with 205, and WWE will only put a effort in if a NJPW or AEW show hit the UK to take away some of it's audience.
