Last month WWE relaunched NXT as NXT 2.0 and since then the brand has gone through some significant changes.

It’s clear that NXT is going in a different direction, and during a recent appearance on That 90s Wrestling Podcast former WWE star Mike Bennett made it clear that he’s not a fan of the new direction.

“It’s one of those things where I don’t think they know what’s good in wrestling anymore. The proof is in the pudding. I can’t sit through the show ’cause as a wrestling fan, I don’t consider it good wrestling. They can talk about that they’re gonna spice it up a little, or make it more Rated R, or whatever they’re gonna do, but at the end of the day, if you don’t have a pulse on what wrestling fans want to see, it’s just not gonna be good.”

Bennett went on to say that WWE seems to have an issue when it comes to drawing in a younger audience, and that what worked in the past might not work today.

“I was reading something the other day that still said the average age of the people that watch NXT are high 50-year-olds or 60-year-olds. That’s not exactly targeting the younger audience,” he said. “And again, I just go back to – what might have worked for the younger audience back in the late ’90s, early ’00s, early ’90s, just isn’t gonna be what’s popular nowadays. You need someone that understands what those age groups wanna see, and unfortunately, I just don’t think the people that are in charge there understand it.”
