Some things have changed not only in the ring at WWE NXT 2.0, but also backstage. It seems like former NXT Women’s Tag Team champion Indi Hartwell, and perhaps other NXT 2.0 talent, will be very welcoming to all newcomers going forward.
Hartwell teamed up with one of those new faces, Persia Pirotta, a couple weeks ago. Together they earned a victory over Amari Miller and Sarray. Hartwell recently sat down with Rick Ucchino to talk about NXT 2.0’s backstage changes.
“For me, it hasn’t been too different. I’m still kind of doing the same thing, but it’s really gratifying to see a lot of the people I’ve trained with in the Performance Center, who are now getting opportunities on TV. A lot of them, who, you know, haven’t been there for so long, but have roughed their butts off to get a spot on TV. So now people like Bron Breakker and Tony D’Angelo and Trick Williams, they’re all getting a chance to shine on TV. So that’s really cool to see. So, that’s probably my favorite thing about NXT 2.0.”
NXT 2.0 had a vision to be different when it debuted in late August. It has accomplished that primarily by bringing in new faces like Bron Breakker, who many believe could become the face of the brand before long.
As far as things changing backstage, Hartwell said it really wasn’t much. She’s okay with that. It seems like WWE is going with a “if it isn’t broken, then why fix it” mentality.
“I think the only thing that’s changed backstage is that there are a lot of new faces. So, you know, the more the merrier,” Hartwell said.
Hartwell competed with Pirotta in a Triple Threat Ladder Match at Halloween Havoc for the NXT Women’s Tag Team championship. They were unable to win the titles, but they certainly gave a great show. This is only the beginning for NXT as they continue after a rebranding effort.
