NXT 2.0 made its debut in September last year and it promised an entirely new outlook on the product. While it did bring about quite a few changes, not all of them were met with a positive reception.
With a fresh look and coat of paint, came a new sense of direction which has seen a new set of WWE Superstars, especially the likes of Bron Breakker. However, not quite a few talents have yet to truly connect with the fans.
However, the show simply has not been performing well when it came to garnering ratings. Even this week’s episode of NXT 2.0 saw a huge fall in ratings as well. Even WWE themselves were surprised fans didn’t flock to the new superstars.
Road Dogg took to Twitter and responded to reports that NXT 2.0 is being considered as unsuccessful backstage in WWE. Road Dogg made it clear that he doesn’t thnk the brand is unsuccessful.
“I disagree with their take. Think about it from a logical, business standpoint; They can do no wrong! Getting PAID for content, developing new character while getting experience in the ring. EVERY show wishes their ratings (which mean nothing) were higher. It’s working
Understood but again, it’s not about your thoughts or feelings. Someone running the business has to make a business decision to change course. I don’t like change either but it’s necessary sometimes whether I like it or not.
WWE also blamed the plummeting of ratings on the abruptness of changes. Sean Waltman previously criticized NXT 2.0 for having 60-year-olds being in charge of the product. We will have to wait and see if the product will improve or not in the future.
