I like NXT - I find it entertaining, funny, and the wrestling on there aint half bad. I also like the concept as it really shows that wrestling IS a sport and does contain competition - as you have 6 athletes trying to COMPETE for a WWE Contract by demonstrating that they are the best in-ring wrestlers (as well as having entertaining factor).
But many people don't like NXT and it doesnt get much viewership - and I can see why.
Where are the big names? - Cena, Edge, Orton, Kane - and the second Alberto Del Rio won the Rumble - He was also removed!
We had Jericho and Punk in season one - and that was great! And I'm not saying all the Pros should be former world champs - just mix them up with lower/mid-carders (as I like that people like Masters and Goldust get good air time too)
Now WWE is bringing back Tough Enough - WHY? Keep NXT and improve on that!
It basically contains the same aim! Why cant WWE just put Stone Cold as host of NXT, BookerT and Trish as trainers - and think of similar tasks instead of running round a ring, dicking around with dice and building blocks!! Just pre-record the tasks and show them in the arena, and weave them in with matches - the crowd doesnt give a shit what goes on in the arena on NXT now anyway.
I like the fact NXT is continuing - and I will probably watch Tough Enough for Austin - but a few episodes in, I can see it losing me. I really do think WWE just dropped the ball and should just re-invent what they've already got...
