They're going to "ECW" NXT for the sake of fucking with AEW. This also defeats the main (at least initial) reason for NXT which was to replace FCW and make their proving ground for green talent in house.

The only caveat for those disappointed in this is that it has the possibility to backfire horribly. The fan base for NXT is primarily those who are disinterested in the main brand product. If they take away the things that make NXT special, they aren't going to take fans away from AEW even if they get enough of their existing fans to make NXT a success. They could even tank the value of NXT entirely and drive more people to watch AEW just because there is another wrestling product on at the exact same time for those who already turned their TVs on to watch wrestling. Just a possibility.

Ok not really, and of course they are hoping to get far more that 500k, but giving Vince $50 million more when they are "supposedly" not happy with the current Raw ratings certainly sends a mixed signal.

It's kind of funny, but NXT will be bringing in new money before the Raw and Smackdown deals even kick in.
Theyíre going to want a trade-off for the numbers the current slot gets. They arenít paying $200 million because itís untested and theyíre already throwing a shit-load of cash at them.

NXT hasnít been developmental for a long time.

The audience is the reason I donít buy Vince being that heavily involved. He wonít be making the trip to Full Sail every week. Well, maybe. Who knows with this company?

As far as talent going back, I think they will have guys do guest appearances like they used to do. Of guys that might get a prolonged return run there, I could see Bobby Roode going back. I’d love for Chad Gable to go, but I can’t see them moving too many. From SmackDown, maybe Aleister Black? They don’t seem that far into using him. I think Cesaro, Styles, Bryan, Zayn, Nakamura and Heavy Machinery will all do matches/guest spots.

They'll have 2 hours of live tv to fill every week. Vince and Kevin Dunn will be involved in some capacity where you'll see their fingerprints all over it.

Before it was "some shit for nerds on the internet". Now they have ads to sell.

I think the best thing about NXT is it doesn't have Kevin Dunn's epileptic camera shaking lol

I would even say that with the idea of some main roster guys being able to show up for a feud here and there, it's cool to think about an AJ Styles or Daniel Bryan showing up to fight an Adam Cole or Velveteen Dream, but those are going to get run into the ground like everything on Raw or Smackdown. It will basically be everyone getting called up at the same time and getting immediately shat on because "Vince doesn't get it"

I don't know where to post for the XFL. Can we please get a dedicated forum for the XFL so I can make fun of their shitty generic names and shitty locations and hope they fail more than Creature could ever wish something to fail or die?

They are trying to capture that AEW audience though. If Vince is sitting in a war room, he knows the best way to out-AEW is to do AEW better than AEW. Surely? The two hour weekly thing is going to put Triple H to the test even if he gets it though.

According to this week's Observer Newsletter, WWE isn't getting $50 million per year for NXT's tv deal but its somewhere between $30-$50 million per year.

Also have to give around 15% to the CAA as a negotiation fee since they helped put the deal together on WWE's behalf.

Apparently the talent that will be featured regularly on NXT had their developmental contracts converted to main roster contracts. So at least a whole lot of people got raises as a result of this.
