Huge Changes To How NXT Creative Will Operate

There has been a huge backstage change made to how the NXT creative team works.

As per PWInsider, the NXT creative team has been informed that they will now directly report and answer to Bruce Prichard and Christine Lubrano, in a similar system to how the main roster WWE creative works.

NXT previously operated as a seperate bubble within the company, but moving forward, will no longer run independently, per the report.

Following the recent Performance Center cuts, Johnny Russo now heads up the NXT writing team, under Prichard and Lubrano’s supervision. Russo (no relation to Vince) has been working on the NXT creative team since August 2019 and became NXT Lead Writer in July 2020. He previously worked as a WWE Senior Creative Writer/Producer before joining the Performance Center team.

Fightful previously reported that the The January 5 NXT releases were intended to directly remove a number of Triple H hires from the company.

We will provide additional updates on the situation as they become available.
