Backstage News On WWE’s Plans For NXT, What NXT Stars Were Recently Told

Posted by Matt Boone March 6, 2014 1 Comment

The talent in WWE NXT were told at the most recent set of television tapings that the NXT brand would be pushed more significantly now that the WWE Network is up and running. The wrestlers were told that the company wants to get behind NXT and promote it as the pure wrestling product within WWE.

Additionally, NXT stars were told that while some would be called up to the main roster, with Emma and Alexander Rusev (along with Lana) being the most recent examples, it’s going to be a slow process for some, and that everyone should e patient. The mindset WWE is trying to establish is that with the Network, the stars of NXT will be getting plenty of added exposure without having to be called up and featured on the main roster.

      Love it. NXT Arrival was my first time watching the show, and it really put things into perspective for me. RAW and Smackdown will continue to be the wide audience reaching, highly kid-friendly (i.e. Santino, El Torito, Hornswaggle, etc.) shows, while NXT will provide that nitty-gritty that people like myself have been missing for so long. Should’ve tuned in sooner!
