For the first time since its inception, NXT will likely become a profitable brand now that it is on the USA Network.
Following the announcement of the move, many online speculated that NXT’s Superstars would be receiving a substantial pay rise.
It was initially reported that the majority of the NXT roster would be receiving a raise, something that was widely applauded by fans and critics.
However, independent wrestler David Starr took to Twitter to reveal that he spoke to a member of the roster who said they weren’t going to be paid more moving forward.
I’ve literally spoken to NXT talent that has been bumped up to TV recently and they had a roster meeting with management where they were told their TV pay raises weren’t coming. https://t.co/LGMJ31LZjk

Following on from this @5Deuce4Tre7 has tweeted that several NXT stars are unhappy about not receiving opportunities on NXT, as well as the fact that they haven’t been given a raise.
Number of NXT talents been more vocal about their frustrations. Lack of opportunity. Not seeing an increase in pay. HHH is going to have to do an all hands meeting to hear them out & work on some solutions to their grievances. If not, he's going to have an uprising to deal with.

The source notes that Triple H will be holding an “all hands meeting to hear them out”. It should be noted that if this doesn’t happen, HHH will likely have an “uprising to deal with”.
This comes after NXT Superstar Jordan Myles took to Twitter this weekend to express his unhappiness at the actions of WWE and NXT higher-ups.
