Backstage Reaction To Vince McMahon NXT Rumors

A new report has revealed the backstage reaction to reports that Vince McMahon and Bruce Prichard will produce NXT moving forward.

Fightful Select (subscription required) reports that a number of NXT performers told them that that they hadn’t been informed about McMahon and Prichard producing NXT.

The report noted that those Fightful spoke to didn’t notice McMahon or Prichard at the latest NXT tapings, however WWE producer Jamie Noble has reportedly been at the Performance Center more than usual recently.

Talent have reportedly been told that Bruce Prichard will be at the Performance Center this weekend, but not all talent is mandated to be there for that.

In addition to the brand overhaul, it was noted that WWE will no longer be scouting independent stars for NXT. Instead, WWE will focus on recruiting “bigger and younger” athletes and teach them how to work.

On August 30, WWE announced the latest line-up of Performance Center recruits. Among the new signees was The Usos’ brother, Joshua Fatu. Gable Steveson’s brother, Bobby Steveson, and Ben Buchanan, son of former WWE star Bull Buchanan, have also joined WWE.
