• Tony Khan Reacts To WWE Revamping NXT
During an interview with Ariel Helwani of BT Sport, WWE President Nick Khan confirmed the rumors of NXT getting a complete revamp.
Nick noted that a new era of NXT will start in a few weeks, with Triple H still being in charge.
Here’s what he said:
“We are doing a complete revamp on NXT, led by Triple H, who is really one of the architects of the original NXT.
What we found — it’s part of why we did the tryout yesterday — what we want to make sure is easy for folks who want to be WWE Superstars, is figuring out how to become WWE Superstars.
In terms of an NXT re-brand, look for it in the next couple of weeks. It’s going to have a whole new look, it’s going to have a whole new feel — and we believe — because of a lot of the indy wrestlers, if you will, have come through our system and are in our system with SmackDown and RAW now.
We don’t want to just keep doing that same thing, we want to look elsewhere for great, young talent.
The look of the show, the production of the show, everything is going to change in the next few weeks.”
AEW President Tony Khan seemingly responded to this news by tweeting the following:
“Professional wrestling is an art form. You don’t create great artists by training them all to paint by numbers in the same way.”
