NXT 2.0 debuted in September and brought about a significant number of changes to the product. However, not all of the changes were met with a positive reception. This is especially the case when it came to the overall presentation and feel of NXT.
NXT 2.0 came about after undergoing a variety of changes compared to the previous version of NXT. This is especially true regarding the kinds of talent the company hires now.
According to PWInsider.com, WWE has sent out an email to its mailing list, where they asked fans for feedback on NXT 2.0 in order to improve the product. The survey includes a series of questions about the quality of NXT and asks fans to agree or disagree with each one and the questions are all detailed ones as well.

Eric Bischoff also previously stated that NXT 2.0 is currently suffering from an identity crisis as well. Sean Waltman previously criticized NXT 2.0 for having 60-year-olds being in charge of the product. NXT 2.0 is focusing on an entirely different direction with talents. We will have to wait and see if the system has also changed or not as the company will certainly need to produce new stars.
