WWE President Nick Khan Confirms Changes To NXT 2.0's Recruitment Process

NXT has undergone significant changes this year

Nick Khan says WWE officials are happy with how NXT 2.0 has progressed since the relaunch in September, while confirming the company's new direction when it comes to recruiting future talent.

WWE repackaged NXT as NXT 2.0 and re-debuted the brand on September 14, 2021, complete with a new look, higher production and a multitude of new talent for the WWE Universe to become accustomed to.

WWE President & Chief Revenue Officer Khan was speaking during the Third Quarter 2021 Earnings Call and, when asked by an investor how the company feels NXT 2.0 is progressing, Khan indicated the promotion feels there is a fresher feel to the product.

Khan said: "We think it’s all starting the way that we wanted it to start. So we wanted a younger, fresher, in-ring approach. We think we have it. You’ve already seen some talent from the new NXT elevated to the main roster. There’s going to be more of that."

Reports since the restructure of NXT have suggested that WWE's recruitment of new talent will now focus on younger entertainers, rather than professional wrestlers, something that Khan has now confirmed to be the case.

Khan added: "Our recruiting efforts, which we can go through at a later date, which are spearheaded by Paul Levesque and Bruce Prichard and a number of other folks here, are focused on young athletes who may not, at this moment in time, be in the ‘wrestling space.’ And we think all of those results will come to fruition in the right way, and that NXT will continue the way it’s already building."
