During the night, the WWE aired the first episode of its brand new NXT, or the 2.0 version of the famous show shaped by Triple H in recent years, in which many wrestlers took part who have now become the face of the main roster, such as Big E, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Sami Zayn and many more.
After weeks of work, WWE presented its new Tuesday night show, going to design a completely new arena, with many more seats, new lighting sets and a completely different format from the past one and of course, behind this huge generational change, it seems that Triple H did not have a hand, but rather his father-in-law, Vince McMahon, certainly he was the mind who gave birth to all the new construction of the third yellow brand of the federation.
NXT: Samoa Joe was not present backstage
According to reports from the pages of the well-known overseas site, Ringside News, WWE Chairman Vince McMahon was not present in the first airing of the new NXT on Tuesday but would have sent his right arm, Kevin Dunn, his collaborator for decades, to fully supervise the product and its new realization.
Before airing, both Dunn and Bruce Prichard went to the Orlando Performance Center to prepare the final details of the airing, while the show's guidelines were drawn up in advance by Vince McMahon himself and Ed Koskey.
, who overhauled the entire NXT, changing the main details, which were then filed down in the design phase by Kevin Dunn and Prichard. As for the creative team, none of the main roster writers would have been used in the drafting of the new NXT, but all team members would have been given an update by Vince McMahon's two right arms.
Being Kevin Dunn 100% a "Vince McMahon guy", the remodeled NXT was born on the basis of the ideas of Vince, who wanted a big change for NXT for months and in the end he put it into practice thanks to his collaborators more historians.
True to form with an episode of WWE RAW or SmackDown, Johnson reports that the script for tonight's episode of NXT 2.0 has changed "a ton of times" throughout the day already. Something that the NXT roster certainly won't be used to handling.
Talents who have spoken to Johnson today describe the backstage atmosphere as "weird," which really isn't a great sign, all things considered. For starters, Kevin Dunn was backstage overseeing the production of the show.
