On the recent Steve Austin Show, Stone Cold was joined by Sean Waltman and together discussed Pro Wrestling in general. They went in-depth on the topic of NXT as a brand. Sean considers NXT superior as it doesn’t cater to everyone, unlike Raw and Smackdown.
Austin concurred and had a few words to say as well. This is what he said:
“The thing I like about the NXT thing is it’s almost like [Waltman] said, the main roster is almost trying to cover or cater to everybody. And to me, the NXT thing is more… they are both under the same umbrella, it’s WWE, it’s sports entertainment. It ain’t pro wrestling anymore. Now, it’s sports entertainment officially, but in my mind, it’s still pro wrestling. And to me, NXT, yeah, it’s kind of like a throwback. And it’s all modern stuff, great lighting, great production values, everything else, but the storylines are very easy to understand and very simple. And, I mean, the announcers aren’t trying to go overboard trying to explain whatever’s going on. Sometimes when I watch the main roster stuff, it’s like they’re trying to play to so many people that the storylines get kind of convoluted.”
We personally agree with NXT being the superior wrestling product since it’s geared towards true wrestling fans.
