WWE is facing yet another revolution. This time, however, we are not talking about a simple reboot of some past show or a new format or a new show to be presented to the public, this time we are talking about the rebirth of an entire brand, with NXT that would have been put in the crosshairs of the most senior WWE executives, who would be thinking of a real revival for the show still considered by some to be the development of the company.
The last eleven fired from the Stamford-based federation, in fact, served to "rejuvenate" the roster, which apparently will soon begin to become younger and younger, to ensure that the Superstars that will be created on the rings of the yellow McMahon show will always be younger and with multiple facets, still having years to build their on-screen character.
The multiple major releases from NXT recently have left fans wondering as to what WWE Chairman Vince McMahon is planning to do. The reports now claim that NXT is set to undergo some major changes and a memo has been sent out to WWE's third brand.
Vince McMahon has a new vision for NXT
Apparently, in these latest releases, Triple H and Shawn Michaels, the main creators of the new NXT concept, had nothing to do with the layoffs. This means that the decision was taken by Vince McMahon, Bruce Prichard and John Laurinaitis.
All this, however, is said to fit perfectly into the new vision of what Vince wants for his third brand, which is a fresher and younger show with much younger and more dynamic Superstars. As stated by the well-known site Wrestling Observer, through the newsletter of the Dave Meltzer, also: "There will be no more small characters (dwarves ed), nor others who begin their careers in the advanced 30 years.
They want people who can become box office attractions and main characters. Certainly, box office attractions are one of those self-fulfilling prophecies”. The new WWE trend would still be a bit similar across all three rosters, as WWE would have fired as many as 52 in the past year.
Superstars quite advanced in years and who by now could no longer become great Superstars, if not the few who already were, like Bray Wyatt or Braun Strowman. We will see how the face of WWE changes once again after these releases and after these movements, with Vince McMahon and the entire federation, which are now called to a real revolution, before it is the fans or employees who revolt themselves.
