    Call me a pessimist but now working with an extra hour, worrying about ratings/network executives. Now it's just another main roster show that might lose it's experimentation and edge....Also, NXT is more or less a training ground for a lot of new talent. That extra exposure can't help but feel added pressure, not to mention over-exposure. Currently we can go a week or two or three without seeing certain talent. Not anymore. Not to mention it's a war with AEW they might not win...there is also waaay too much product on cable network tv. dilute, dilute.
    I must be a pessimist, too, because I agree 100%.

    I agree, this can't be good for NXT moving forward. They just taped their usual episodes after TakeOver but starting on the 18th, I believe they're going to go live for 1 episode and then taped for the one after. They say HHH will run it but I think we all know Vince will get his hands on it when it's all said and done. There are a lot of casual WWE fans who don't watch NXT and they likely still won't. So I'm sure eventually Vince will make sure Rollins, Lynch, Charlotte, etc show up on NXT as part of some "wild card" rule as well.

    It's a good test for AEW though. I'm excited for it. As much as I love the NXT brand though, you have to admit that in their usual episodes it comes off as low budget. Meanwhile AEW is going to have pyros and everything. It'll be night and day.

    LGK is the only place for real die-hard fans. If you're not here, you're not a die-hard. That's how I see it!

    Agreed.

    NXT is built on small segments, the occasional good to very good match on tv, and the blowout ppv's. You can't do this with a 2 hour live weekly show. I don't even care about the low budget feel, I sort of dug that (until the ppv's). HHH can come out and say all he wants that the show will not change, but we know it will.

    We're now going to have 3 hours of raw, 2 hours of smackdown, 2 hours of nxt, and 2 hours of aew on cable tv each week. That's looney tunes.
