NXT seemed to be the last refuge for pro wrestling fans under WWE’s roof. Now that could all be changing with one historic announcement tonight on RAW.
During Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez went into some very good detail about how Vince McMahon is not only likely to change NXT’s weekly television show, but he will also likely change everything fans ever loved about their TakeOver specials as well.
“My God, if you guys love those TakeOvers, kiss them goodbye.”
“I mean — I’m sure they will [produce a TakeOver to compete with an AEW pay-per-view]. My point is, you guys know those TakeOvers, you know why they’re so special, well, it’s because Triple H puts together those TakeOvers with the best wrestlers vs the best wrestlers the best he can — there are some exceptions sometimes, but the cards are designed to have the best wrestlers wrestling each other and you go backward twelve weeks or whatever and you write TV to lead you to that — done!”
“Those days are over everyone, they’re done.”
“Vince is not going to put together a TakeOver with the intention of having the best wrestlers face each other. He’s going to have the people who he thinks are the biggest stars facing each other whether they gel in the ring or not. How many Baron Corbin matches do we have for crying out loud?”
Vince McMahon will likely have his hands on NXT a lot more and if they are going to be live every week, even every other week, that still gives McMahon plenty of time to alter things and work his always changing mood into how storylines play out in NXT.
Therefore, NXT TakeOver: Toronto might not have seemed like the biggest NXT TakeOver event ever, but fans needed to enjoy it while they could. Because things might never be the same again.
