A week ago WWE rebooted NXT into a colorful product known as NXT 2.0. It was a throwback to WWE programming of yesteryear with many comparing it to the classic WWF Superstars of the 80’s and early 90’s.
It was a 180 from the dark, edgy classic pro wrestling presentation of the black and gold brand. Different but fun.
Now comes word that NXT might be changing again! Into a more “edgier” product…pal.
Fightful Select (paywall’d but HIGHLY recommend) is reporting that Vince McMahon is going to be pushing NXT 2.0 in different direction. An edgier, more aggressive product with a target on the 18-34 demographic.
Expect more intense in-ring work, skimpier dressed women, and harsher language. The WWE is looking to target the audience that has been gaining steam with AEW.
In other words, expect exactly what you had for the last 6-years!
