Upcoming NXT Spoilers

NXT has begun its new schedule of tapings at Full Sail University in Florida.

The schedule sees four episodes taped in a night.

Based on last night’s initial taping, it looks like the NXT we knew has changed drastically, now incorporating lots of new faces from FCW, a new General Manager and new commentators.

Spoilers below:

Taping 3:
Sofia Cortez def. Paige

    they are really debuting? @_@ NICE. :]

  • mpezza

    I was really looking forward to this new version of NXT. I thought it’d be pretty cool to incorporate some of the FCW talent into the show more little by little and give them some good storylines and exposure. But from reading the spoilers, it looks like they’ve just stopped giving anyone storylines. Its just random matches with no follow up to anything. It looks like they’ve just taken all the fun from the show. I’ll give it a chance but I don’t think I’ll enjoy it as much as I enjoyed the old version of NXT.

    • Lanoom

      Keep in mind a couple of contexts:

      1) Debut show
      2) We still don’t have definite air dates for these recordings for the episodes, which mostly means we don’t know what they do with everybody. I’m banking that there will be some sort of “graduation” for some, if not all, the current cast.

      • Lanoom

        That said: YAY, ANTI-DIVUR

        • mpezza

          I don’t mind if the current NXT roster get graduated and they start the show from scratch, that wasn’t my point at all. The whole magic of NXT, for me, was that the superstars and divas had real (albeit usually petty and strange) storylines. They weren’t just chasing titles. Judging from the spoilers that are available, they simply have matches and that’s all, the promos seem to be few and far between. There’s no real character development which is important when people first debut.

          I see what you mean. Right now what’s the difference between this show and Superstars. The only thing these FCW wrestlers are getting is match time and a quick promo, but that isn’t going to be enough to differentiate them and help them to stand out from the pack.

          The thing that made NXT work was all the segments between the NXTers, which helped them develop their own characters and personas which allowed them to stand out from each other and make an impression on the WWE Universe(case in point people like Johnny Curtis, Maxine, Titus and D-Young, Curt Hawkins and Tyler Reks, etc.).

  • ricky_says_hi

    any news on who worked face and heel etc? i’m going to say Sofia Cortez is more suited to being a face

    • Morris Muffin

      Well Paige is the anti-diva, so I’d assume she’s heel.

  • koshiro

    I found this:

    “Episode 3 – Airing June 6, 2012:

    * Sofia Cortez defeated Paige via a Bulldog after Paige had her in a wheelbarrow position.”

    Anyway.. 4 episodes and only 1 match.. I’m sad.. I want old NXT back T_T

    • xxQOXxx

      People complaining already, not shocked.

      Fact is, on the old NXT they did backstage segments seperate so you dont get them in the spoilers. So hopefully they still have them.

      *There was only really a diva match every 2 weeks or so on the old NXT so not really suprised that ther was only one match from these 3 show.

      * The likes of Raquel & Audrey will probaly be on the next set of tapings.

      I hate it when people complain before they’ve even seen something.

      • koshiro

        Hey, be cool boy/girl?

        The thing is that the current/old NXT has became my favorite product from WWE of today.. so when I see that is going to change so much, yes, I feel a bit sad about it

        I know it’s just the first 4 shows, and probably many things will change in the others.. but I will just miss seeing the girls, and also the guys storylines that have been on NXT the past few months..

        Other than that, I’m happy to see Paige on the show :)

        Hoping for the best =)

      • Morris Muffin

        I hope to God that Shaul does not ever debut on WWE tv as Raquel. She needs to debut in a big way, as herself.

    • Morris Muffin

      Please shut the hell up and stop spoiling the moves! That does’nt just go for you though. I mean come on…

  • http://vetaj.blogspot.com NurseBetty

    can we at least wait til it airs before we judge the show.

  • WWEStarInTraining

    I think they should bring in the title from fcw and use em as Nxf titles

    • http://twitter.com/jeremysalvatico jeremycanrana

      or a new belt maybe …. I just have a problem with the fact that’s it’s too tiny and too pink .. lol

  • http://twitter.com/jeremysalvatico jeremycanrana

    I like the show before with all the time and effort given to the divas , so let’s hope it’ll be as good as the now-former nxt
    But HELL YEAH Sofia vs Paige sounds frickin’ fantastic!!!!!!

  • Choko

    I can’t stand Sofia after that she was bashing Christina for the injury that was clearly her own fault on TE.

    Stupid that she won. Paige is much better.

  • LadyGoDiva

    The fact that Sofia/Paige are an allliance and now that they’re wrestling against each other I’ll try to stay positive that the new version of NXT will have the same aspect like it did before more tv time for the Divas and great matches,etc.

    Can’t blame people that they liked the old NXT but until we see it on wwe.com then we can complain because I heard the JR will on commentary again which is on the bright side of that.

  • Nostalgia

    Im happy!

  • ShimmerSupport211

    Britani knight jobbing…. so dumb!

    • jcarcano12

      Not everyone wins a math

      • jcarcano12


    • No Holds Barred

      idiot that’s not jobbing, u don’t even know the meaning

      • jcarcano12


    • Spideywebby

      That… is called losing a match/storyline/build up..

  • jcarcano12

    Sounds fun!

  • Nostalgia

    Who knows. Maybe WWE wants NXT on tv again

    • No Holds Barred

      well when Haitch opened the show and welcomed everyone, he mentioned that the new NXT would be airing in 60 countries.. unless he means it will remain internationally on Tv and online for USA

  • redsandman99

    For all we know they’ve filmed backstage segments and stuff that weren’t reported (or weren’t seen to be reported).Let’s give this a bit before we start judging.

  • SherriShepherdWWE

    I am Super excited, i read all the spoilers, and i so happy, cant wait to see the Acension, (i guess there was entrance was Awesome), Seth Rollins, Sofia and Paige, I love it

    i think this show is gonna be great, it is now kinda the middle ground between the big shows (raw and smackdown), and FCW, this show is really gonna determine weither or not a superstar is ready for the main roster, instead of just debuting them and then having them flop, SO THIS IS AWESOME

    Sure there wasnt much diva action, but this is the first of NXT, i think this show is gonna be GREEEEEEAAAATTTT

    • jcarcano12

      Me 2 n u where rite about Paige n Sofia. :)

  • Choko

    I hope Sofia doesn’t last very long in the WWE.

    Call up Tenille and give her Sofia’s spot.

    • Jhonmarco

      You’re very mature.

    • http://twitter.com/Koedit Koedi

      grow up bitch, its not that serious.

      • Choko

        After seeing how bitter, rude and pathetic she was to Christina on TE, I definately don’t want someone as bitchy as her on the roster. I hope she has really matured herself. Also she is nothing special. No star power, charisma or attraction. Average wrestler.

        Koedi, stfu *******.

        • Jhonmarco

          I must have missed the part, where you were there when it happened & know what both feel? They said their piece, but no one will ever know what really happened. I agree she’s average, but to tell a hard working woman that she deserves to be fired is pretty damn pathetic.

  • Jordan

    Well, I think the repackaging of NXT is a great thing for the product in general because first, it’s what it always should have been to get these men and women TV-ready for the future. Performing in-front of, I don’t know, maybe 40-60 people at the FCW “arena” in Tampa doesn’t get them prepared for what they go on to perform for on the main shows. Second, let’s face it – NXT Redemption became a complete and utter circus towards the end of it’s road but it is a little concerning now with the FCW Divas joining the roster in a sense, what will come of the Divas who were wrestling on NXT? Will Tamina, Kaitlyn, and Maxine all get lost in the midst to just become tag match fill-in partners on Raw and SmackDown? or even the courtesy of being that? Time will tell, I suppose. Anyway, looking forward to seeing more of Paige, I dig her look and style.

  • WhalenX12

    Yes ! I love Sofia ;D and PAIGE. Finally ! I’ve been waiting for it !

  • AdrianRay

    I must be out of the loop. Repackaging? Is it still being presented on WWE.com? When did this news break? Ehhhh….

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/dsanchez96?feature=mhum sanchezdiego96

    Woahhh. Paige! I dont even care that she lost or that NXT is online. I’m so excited for her! I’m kinda excited for NXT overall. I might actually watch it all instead of just coming on here to see the girls.

  • FrankNFurter

    I’m uber excited to see where this goes, it’s like a better produced FCW, which is a good thing. I seen pics of the arena and it reminds me of the iMPACT! arena, which is a one hell of a step up for FCW. It actually has a stage too, with the vintage commentary table setup near the stage as well. ^_______^

    There are videos of some superstars entrances from the debut and snippets of matches on YT. Check them out.

  • Morris Muffin

    Well NXT is shown on television in the UK so…. IN ALL YO’ FACES ;D

  • Marshy

    Looks like they are making room for wrestlers who have sign a contract with them.
