WWE handed down the edict that big changes are coming to NXT. That means the roster will see signifanct releases, and more are likely coming on top of Friday’s mass firing spree. USA Network isn’t too thrilled about this call.

USA Network devoted a Tuesday night primetime slot for two hours of the black and gold brand. Now NXT is releasing shorter wrestlers over 30. Some of the most talented performers on the brand fit that description.

Mat Men Pro Wrestling Podcast’s Andrew Zarian tweeted out two posts to explain how USA Network sees this decision. It’s not that they’re angry, but they are “disappointed.” As we all know, that can sometimes be worse.

Hearing a lot of chatter from USA Network higher-ranked reps regarding the releases from NXT.


“Personally I’m disappointed with how this is going”

The perception from many is that these upcoming changes will be negative.

Perception means everything especially when you are working with partners who are not pro wrestling fans and don’t have deep knowledge of the talent.

In reality are the changes coming to NXT a bad thing? Time till tell.

WWE might not care what USA Network higher-ups think. NXT was once a streaming-exclusive broadcast and it could very well find its way to Peacock eventually anyway. It seems that they will continue with the plan to do whatever they want without consulting Triple H one iota.
