Report: New WWE NXT Programme Being Discussed

Another show could be on the way...

Since 2010, NXT has been a staple of WWE programming. First as a competition show and then as a traditional wrestling programme, it was used to develop the next generation of Superstars before becoming a fully-fledged third brand following the creation of All Elite Wrestling.

According to Fightful Select, more NXT programming could be on the way as WWE was planning a new show before the company's latest coronavirus outbreak.  

Details on the new show are scarce but it was once pitched as NXT Underground. It wouldn't have shared any similarities with Raw Underground, however, with the exception being peers would have watched the action. 

Discussions about the new programme were first held last year and a pilot episode was taped. Some people didn't think it was a good idea, though, so it was ditched. 

Conversations around a second programme have since been revived and plans were in place to use unused NXT Superstars and the new signings from EVOLVE on the show.

Following WWE's purchase of the independent wrestling promotion, the company signed Josh Briggs, Anthony Greene, Leon Ruff, Brandi Lauren and Curt Stallion.
