RedRooster Posted April 28, 2021 Share Posted April 28, 2021 (edited) Before I continue, I'm going to clarify an important point - I'm not talking about the performance centre. Of course they're not better off without that - I'm talking purely about NXT as a standalone brand. WWE Smackdown is killing it right now, thanks in no small part to Roman Reigns. Raw, on the other hand, is consistently horrendous and I don't think it would be much better if it was a two hour show. Neither 'main' roster has a huge amount of depth, particularly in the Women's Division, and I'm not sure a draft would help them much - in fact, I'd worry that it would ruin the good thing they have going on with the Smackdown brand. But if you kill NXT? You suddenly have an influx of new talent, particularly on the Women's side. It would allow WWE to have a similar level of depth on its female roster as it does on the male roster, and also gives you access to fun characters and talented wrestlers like Finn Balor, Johnny Gargano, WALTER (assuming he's willing to wrestle regularly in the States), Bronson Reed and MSK. You - potentially - remove the lingering main roster staleness in one foul (albeit brutal) swoop. It doesn't fix the poor booking, but it does prevent WWE from having to support three brands at, arguably, the detriment of their two main income generators. NXT isn't acting as much of a developmental territory anymore, and very much exists for its own audience. I'm not convinced that it's existence is particularly helpful at this point. So what do you think? Has NXT become a burden? Would WWE be better off without it? Edited April 28, 2021 by RedRooster Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
