“In terms of an NXT rebrand, look for it in the next couple of weeks”

Aug 22, 2021 - by Steve Gerweck

In an interview with Ariel Helwani, Nick Khan confirmed that NXT will be undergoing changes after Takeover

“We are doing a complete revamp on NXT, led by Triple H who is really one of the architects of the original NXT. In terms of an NXT rebrand, 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 a lot of the indie 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, it’s all gonna change. Next few weeks”

    Translation:
    Look, Vince isn’t happy about losing Wednesday to AEW. So despite the current model of NXT being popular with a core group of fans, we’re going to tear it down and rebuild. We plan to have NXT full of ex-football, basketball, and baseball players and a few indie wrestlers here and there, just to dangle the carrot. We want people we can mold to our brand of sports entertainment, we’re not looking for wrestlers, per say.
