News NXT to run monthly live specials

  1. From todays investor call:
    Sounds fun, but I fear that it might become too much eventually.

  2. As much as I absolutely love the NXT live events, putting them monthly sounds like a bad idea. Maybe once every two months would be good as it still gives time to develop storylines- something that NXT does better than on the main roster.
    • Agree Agree x 2
  3. Now can they keep the quality up or does it become glorified WWE main roster PPV quality?

    I'm sure half of the main events will be good but I'm not entirely sure this is a good idea.
  4. I'm thinking they should go bi-monthly.. the whole thing about these NXT specials is the crazy hype in between each of them.. Idk, monthly could be cool but it could also go badly.

  5. Lol, okay...
  6. It won't.

    Monthly specials will ruin one of NXT's strong points. The booking.
  7. eh... not really hyped for this. One of my favorite things about Takeover was the fact they had some time in between thus you could develop stories better. Bad move
  8. Bi-monthly at the least. It might work well for a bit to begin with but it'll ruin it after awhile on a month by month basis.
  9. We'll see about that
  10. I'm certain.

    NXT is one hour long. They will have to rush a lot of booking just to establish a proper amount of matches for every special, nevermind making them good.
  11. I'd rather they just moved to doing the show live every week instead of pre-recorded for a few weeks at a time.
  12. Dayumn, I really want to exclude that possibility of them rushing stuff and keep being optimistic that it won't affect the show.

    I'm not gonna judge yet, though. Gonna wait till I see it.
  13. Are they starting the specials in April? I didn't see an official date.
  14. I think one's supposed to be held on April 22nd, if I'm not mistaken. But there have also been rumors it won't happen until May 27th.

    I guess we might find out this Wednesday when they air NXT.
  15. I like it. Seems like a good way to get the guys some experience that can be needed for the monthly PPVs on the main roster. Too much time can get them too comfortable on NXT, I guess is what I'm getting at.
  16. As you say Balor, we'll see what happens. Maybe they'll start doing "filler PPVs" where they put on better matches and have key storyline developments leading to the Big Four which are the same as we have now...

    Still, it's hard to be optimistic about this. Don't mess with success.

  17. Don't try to kill my #TeamOptimism, Jon Snowman. Let's not jump to conclusions yet. :)
  18. Because that totally works on the main roster.

    This is the first serious threat to what makes NXT work.

    And it doesn't make an iota of sense.
