• Good News Regarding The New NXT
As we all know by now, WWE’s NXT brand will be getting a revamp in a few weeks, and the show will start focusing on wrestlers in their 20s and WWE wants to build their own homegrown talent over there, instead of indy wrestlers.
There was a rumor going on that Vince McMahon and Bruce Prichard will start booking NXT from now on, and Triple H will lose power, but that’s not the case.
According to Wrestlevotes, Vince & Bruce are only responsible for NXT’s new look, while Triple H, Shawn Michaels, William Regal and Matt Bloom (Albert / A-Train / Lord Tensai) will still run the day-to-day operations and storylines in NXT:
“After talking to sources regarding NXT: the day to day operation isn’t changing that drastically. Still very much in the hands of HHH, HBK, Regal, Bloom etc.
However, the look of the weekly TV product will have a “Vince & Co” stamp on it.”
