Re: PWINSIDER: NXT moving to USA Network

WELP :maury

If you thought NXT was already a bore in 2019, two hours every week LIVE at a depleted Full Sail with Vince/Dunn running the show is going to make you hate NXTECWWE on USA.

Hope NXT can improve from this point forward because they need to and they need it.

Re: PWINSIDER: NXT moving to USA Network

Following NXT's growth in popularity, its weekly Wednesday night show will expand its reach and now air LIVE on USA Network at 8/7C starting September 18.

The new two-hour NXT weekly show will also be available on demand on WWE Network every Thursday night beginning at 8/7C. NXT TakeOver events will continue to stream live exclusively on WWE Network.

Re: PWINSIDER: NXT moving to USA Network

I was going to say. If the viewer has to make a priority watching choice between NXT and AEW but NXT will be available on demand on Thursdays....

...you'd just wait on Thursday for NXT and have a first watch of AEW live on Wednesdays.

As long as AEW doesn't fuck up royally, they'll be fine. As long as NXT can improve vastly (lord willing), they'll be fine.

Re: NXT moves to USA Network (Sept. 18) LIVE on Wednesday Nights from Full Sail

Even though it will be on the WWE Network on Thursdays i'm still not a fan of it. So it will be 2 hours and live just like RAW and Smackdown, on the same channel and time slot as RAW but 2 days later and yet it wont be a third "main roster" brand next to RAW and Smackdown because a part of it is still them developing talent.

NXT is going to be in the same time slot as Survivor and other big shows eventually. Other than Vince wanting to compete with AEW, to me it just doesn't make sense.

This is what happens when you play chicken with the freight train.

AEW chickened out about going up against RAW, so now its direct competition is going to be going up against NXT HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHHAHAAH.

Cody just got worked. If he has any balls* at all, they'll move AEW to Mondays in response and simply go after the big dog.




* he has no balls.

Not even footballs, basketballs, or soccer balls.

He has none of those. >:)

We'll see if they move AEW in response...

but I doubt it. Optically, its now up against direct competition in NXT, a minor league show, not WWE. If it stays that way, it'll frame them as minor league. Do you want your ratings compared against RAW, or NXT? Because as it stands, that will be the comparison every week... AEW vs NXT.

For years we were told that RAW's ratings would increase if it was like NXT.

We will now see if that prediction is accurate.

Re: PWINSIDER: NXT moving to USA Network

so what about NXT UK?
What about NXT UK?

It's clearly still going to be a weekly 1hr show. They tape TV normally on Friday's & Saturday's, every 6 weeks or so, so it won't interfere with NXT airing live weekly.

WWE putting NXT on network the next day seems like a mistake. Since people can now watch AEW live then wait to watch NXT on WWE Network the next day.

Still going to be run out of Full Sail each Wednesday? How much does that seat? Gotta be less than 1000 right? Closer to 500?

WWE wants the TV money and USA Network wants the WWE’s audience to draw viewers to their network at least 2 nights live every week. WWE isn’t concerned with on demand replays; see Raw and SmackDown are on Hulu the very next day after they air live too.
