WWE brought the NXT brand to the USA Network and this will come with a lot more attention. In fact, it will come with a lot more responsibilities too.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that due to NXT’s live Wednesday night broadcast, WWE has instituted a new aspect to their required schedule. NXT Superstars must now attend a rehearsal and it is mandatory.

After all, if/when the NXT Superstars make it to the main roster they will be required to do rehearsals before each live event as well.

The talent is also required to do a full rehearsal every Tuesday night at Full Sail for the Wednesday television. This will happen weekly and it’s mandatory, even for those with a decent amount of television experience. 

It’s a good idea that NXT is doing practice runs before their show goes live. When a show is live there is far less room for any type of error. This kind of pressure is going to be a good thing because hopefully, it won’t be too much more stressful if a WWE call-up does happen.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
