The Wednesday Night War recently saw a big shake-up backstage in NXT. WWE lost a top name responsible for NXT’s creative direction.

Ringside News has learned that NXT’s lead writer Joe Belcastro has resigned from his position. We are still awaiting more information in this situation regarding his replacement.

WWE was putting more of a focus on the NXT writing team. They moved some people over to the black and gold brand to try to freshen up those stories.

AEW Dynamite consistently beating WWE NXT was noticed by the company. This is why the company brought over additional hands to the writing team.


The exact reason for his resignation from this position was not told to us. We will continue to monitor this on-going situation here at Ringside News.

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.
