Report: Further Details On WWE Being Disappointed With NXT 2.0

An abrupt change last year

NXT has seen tremendous change in the last four months with the brand having moved away from Triple H's black-and-gold era in September of 2021 and towards a new developmental show overseen by Bruce Prichard and Christine Lubrano. 

All the changes haven't improved WWE's satisfaction with the brand, though, and a recent report from WrestleVotes noted the company were "disappointed" with NXT 2.0 so far. A source even noted they thought more fans would have gravitated towards the newer stars quicker than has been the case. 

In an update, Andrew Zarian of the Mat Men Pro Wrestling Podcast provided more details about WWE's disappointment, noting much of the blame has been placed on how quickly everything with the brand changed last year. Fan perception has also not helped, those within the company believe. 

"Spoke to a source at WWE regarding @WrestleVotes report on WWE being disappointed at how NXT 2.0 is going. According to my source, a lot of the blame is being put on the abruptness of how everything was changed. 'Fan perception of the product isn't helping either,'" Zarian tweeted.

If WWE can improve fan perception ultimately remains to be seen, but signs of positivity can be found in the popularity of some new stars like Bron Breakker and Cora Jade.
