WWE is fashioning themselves to be like a any other major sporting organization in a lot of ways and this includes the concept of farm teams. In a lot of ways, NXT is WWE’s developmental system but it’s more of a graduate school at this point full of people with years of experience. But there doesn’t seem to be a place for fresher faces to gain exposure, yet.
Dave Meltzer was asked by one fan about the possibility of WWE opening a smaller brand featuring the people we don’t see on NXT Television on a weekly basis. It was a good question and he drew a comparison to a AA team.
“With so many young stars at the Performance Center, do you think WWE could create a small brand featuring the guys exclusively doing the small PC house shows? Since NXT is so hot, would be good to have like minor/AA type of brand on the Network with a PC champ.”
Meltzer’s reply was “that seems to be being worked on,” therefore it is plausible to expect the current incarnation of NXT to expand in a matter of time. This is very interesting, we just wonder if this new AA Division of NXT might get their own TakeOver events as well.
That seems to be being worked on https://t.co/dl1EFFQrDx
