NXT 2.0 debuted back in September last year and it promised an entirely new outlook on the product. While it did bring forth a lot of changes, not everything hit the mark in the way fans wanted. In fact, William Regal fully supports NXT 2.0 and that has been the case since day one.
With a new look and entirely different color scheme, WWE made it clear where their vision is when it comes to NXT’s future. The brand is already creating new stars, especially the likes of Bron Breakker. Despite that, fans continue to feel the product is lacking in many ways.
While speaking on the latest episode of The Sessions, William Regal talked about NXT being rebranded to NXT 2.0 and what he thought about it. Regal revealed that he fully supported the change since day one and continues to support what the brand is doing, even now.
“When I heard last summer that we wanted to revamp, I was like, ‘Great!’ When I actually heard what Mr. McMahon wanted, I was all for that… I don’t know if anybody knew that I was open to the fact that I wanted to be a big part of that because I was.
I was very hands-on with The Creed Brothers and very hands-on with Bron Breakker. I had an incredible run on the main roster and the absolute greatest run possible in NXT. If nothing else, the time came when it was time to go now so it didn’t become something I didn’t like and move on. That’s the way I look at it. When I actually heard what Mr. McMahon wanted, I was all for that.”
NXT 2.0 will also bring in more main roster stars for the development of the product. The product will continue to be like this and that will not be changing anytime soon. We’ll have to wait and see whether the overall show will see much improvement in the coming months.
