The main event of last Tuesday’s one year anniversary episode of WWE NXT 2.0 saw The Bloodline’s Solo Sikoa defeat Carmelo Hayes to become the brand-new WWE NXT North American Champion. Immediately after the match, a video package narrated by WWE Hall of Famer and the promotion’s Senior Vice President of Talent Development Creative Shawn Michaels aired. In the video, Michaels talked about how WWE NXT has been and always will be about developing the Superstars of tomorrow, but they will always reflect and acknowledge the past. The WWE Hall of Famer also said that NXT is constantly evolving with a focus on the future and their WWE NXT Superstars will develop and move on, but their message will never change and they are NXT.
The video would then end with the brand’s multi-color logo fading and it being replaced by an updated version of the black and gold logo (with more white and gold), apparently teasing that the brand will be undergoing a big change. NXT began as a game show in 2010 and was then launched as a developmental brand in May 2012. The show would then be revamped as NXT 2.0 on September 14, 2021, with a new logo, a new look and a new direction, a decision that was believed to have been made by former WWE Chairman Vince McMahon. It now appears that WWE NXT will be going back to its roots, with Triple H calling the shots.
