Vince to be involved creatively with NXT/NXT officially moves to the USA Network

Per PWI:

Quote:
And for those wondering, Vince McMahon is expected to be directly involved with NXT once it moves to USA Network. There has also already been talk about bringing main roster talent to the NXT brand to provide more “star power” and increase ratings. That obviously has a lot of people rolling their eyes.
Welp, it was fun while it lasted.

The whole point of NXT is to secure that type of fan who would be interested in AEW, right? It should be alternative programming to Raw, not more of the same.

Not good. I like Bliss on Raw or Smackdown but I don't see her as a good hand. NXT should be the worker brand.

I'm assuming NXT will continue to go up on Hulu the day after it airs so it was always going to be an easier call for me.

I suggest we recruit a rather large group from the depths of the IWC and all go around to the darkest corners of the web spreading a story that Vince has a copy of Epsteins secret black book. Then we play the waiting game.

I wonder if there will be any kind of reset with the NXT roster.

I would be quite ok if they let too NXT alum but underused people move back to NXT.

Shinsuke, Roode, Asuka, and Ember Moon all come to mind. Maybe someone like Rusev who never really had a run in NXT before getting called up and getting the main roster push.

It would also be pretty cool if somebody who was never in NXT goes and is "pissed" and just destroys people. Bobby Lashley for example in NXT would be awesome.

According to Post Wrestling's Review-A-RAW episode this week, NXT might have to constantly hit near a million or more to be considered a success by USA Network's standards.

Last week's 8PM show didn't rank in the Top 200 shows for the night but the 9PM show was a rerun of Suits that generated 950k for viewers.

Glad to hear about the Thursday Network replay. That said, we all are gonna switch back and forth on Wednesdays, even if only during the commercials.

Sure that is the reason, but the goal is for Vince to line his pockets, same as ever.

Kudos to USA Network, getting 2 hours of NXT to replace the lost 2 hours of Smackdown for 1/5th the cost. That's a homerun for them.

It's easy to say that, but are you going to sit through 3 minutes of commercials every time AEW breaks instead of flipping over to USA to see what's happening?

As a wrestling fan, AEW will be in the main option with NXT being available the next day, but who isn't going to still be flipping back and forth?

Seems WWE's locker room reaction to NXT's move to cable is a lot less enthusiastic than expected based on the feedback Fightful got.

Mixture of some not caring at all about NXT's move and others not even knowing about it until the news broke.

One person did have an interesting takeaway of this battle is going to be a lot tougher than WWE would want due to the massive upheaval on how NXT runs and believing NXT isn't strong enough to compete in terms of ticket sales.

I will not be flipping back and forth. There's really no point to watch NXT live if it's going to be available the next day. I can deal with a few commercials.

I could always have the TV in the bedroom playing NXT but since it’ll be on the Network the next day there’s really no sense of urgency. I’m the type of asshole who doesn’t want his viewing interrupted so trying to watch two shows at once is a bit pointless. Especially considering the times we live in where you can pretty much watch any show at your convenience.

I don’t think WWE even cares about “winning” a Wednesday night war. They just want to take away enough viewers that AEW’s sponsors don’t think they got their money’s worth and don’t want to re-up as a result.

100 p makes sense. But if that's the goal, why the fuck does Vince need to be involved in creative?

John Pollock issued a correction on the shows NXT will be replacing and the high bar NXT will need to meet in order to please USA Network.

I would peg that average as a barometer of what they would hope NXT could come close to, if not exceed.

It's just math.

They pay $250 million to get 2,500,000 viewers for Raw.
They pay $50 million for NXT, so they should be happy to get 500,000 viewers for NXT.


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.
