Tonight is a big night for the stars of NXT, as WWE’s third brand is set to go live on USA Network.
NXT will be transitioning from a one hour show to a two hour show, but fans shouldn’t expect to see a third hour added.
Triple H recently addressed the possibility of NXT becoming a three hour show during a conference call, and he explained why he doesn’t want to see that happen.
“Me, personally, I wouldn’t want to go three hours. Every hour that you add gets exponentially harder. It really does. For the last couple of years, one of the more difficult things in the NXT brand has been bandwidth of…we have a lot of talent, I would like to debut them, I would like to get them on TV and I don’t have the space. With an hour show, the real estate of where you could put people — every single episode we would do I was like, ‘Man, I’d really like to get this person on the show and I just don’t have the space.’ Two hours, to me, is not about speeding up storylines or increasing the amount of time you see talent, it’s about having the opportunity to debut more and letting more talent shine.”
Do you think NXT should be three hours? Sound off in the comments below.
