WWE Wants to Expand the NXT Template and Weekly Shows

WWE Wants to Expand the NXT Template and Weekly Shows

Dave Meltzer of has reported in his latest newsletter that WWE wants to expand the NXT template. This will be possible thanks to the new contracts that WWE has signed lately, both at the television level and at the show level as is the case of Crown Jewel or the events in Saudi Arabia to be held in 2019.

WWE’s strategy is clear: the company wants to expand its development centers in other countries and hire the best emerging talent. In this way, WWE will have greater control over the competition that may exist across the globe and block agreements from other promoters who want to market with talents of great potential.

All this chain of intentions will be reflected on television, where NXT could expand its weekly show in two hours. Due to the increase in talent, WWE NXT will be forced to expand its programming, so it would not be unreasonable for that to happen in the near future. It should be remembered that WWE will have received offers to broadcast NXT on television but the strength of its exclusivity for WWE Network will have thrown back any intention of this type of movement.

In relation to this news, there are developments around the figure of Adam Page. According to Meltzer, WWE recently offered him a contract but rejected it with the idea of continuing to be part of the Bullet Club. According to the latest information, Page has time to make a final decision, specifically until the end of the year.
