NXT is faring worse than expected

In September 2021, WWE put in place a real makeover regarding what had become its third brand and is now back in development territory, namely NXT. In fact, on September 14, 2021, WWE broadcast the first episode of its brand new NXT, that was 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, Charlotte Flair and many more.

After weeks of work, WWE presented its new Tuesday night show, designing an entirely new arena, with many more seats, new lighting sets and a completely different format than the one in the past, probably with the hand of Vince McMahon.

But all these changes that have been made to the product, are they really convincing the McMahon-owned company, or have they been a hole in the water that has disappointed workers and fans? Talking to us about this is the now very famous Twitter profile of wrestling news Wrestlevotes, who wrote: “Internally it is said that WWE is disappointed with NXT 2.0 in its first 4 months.

Lumis came out from under the ring and Knight asked which of them Waller wanted to face in a match. Back after a break on NXT, we saw that the match was underway with Waller and Lumis in the ring. Dexter had control of the match early on and hit a big neckbreaker before getting a big suplex and a leg drop as the match went on.

Outside the ring, Waller sent Lumis over the announcer's desk before Saurav returned and shoved Lumis into the ring post. Back in the ring, Waller got his trademark stunner before picking up the win.
