WWE NXT is the professional wrestling developmental branch for WWE, based in Winter Park, Florida. From its inception in August 2012 to June 2013, it was a distinct but affiliated developmental territory for WWE under the name NXT Wrestling. In June 2013, the NXT Wrestling website was shut down and NXT content was moved to WWE.com. From February 2014, NXT started a series of live special events broadcast on the WWE Network, analogous to main roster pay-per-view shows.

Despite its status as a developmental territory, NXT has been praised for a high quality of wrestling,[1][2] captivating storylines[citation needed] and for the opportunities they afford female wrestlers to wrestle as opposed to the main roster.[3]

History[edit]

In August 2012, WWE ceased operating Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW), its developmental promotion in Tampa, Florida, deactivated FCW titles, and began running all of its developmental events and operations at Full Sail University under the "NXT Wrestling" banner. WWE had been using the NXT name for a television program featuring rookies from FCW competing to become WWE main roster members, though the "reality television" aspects of the show had been dropped earlier in 2012; WWE NXT now serves as the primary television program for the promotion.[4]

On February 27, 2014, NXT held its first live two-hour special event called NXT Arrival, which was also the first live in-ring program broadcast on the WWE Network[5][6][7] Eventually, WWE scheduled more live two-hour special events.[8]

In 2015, NXT promoted its first live events outside of Florida, with an event scheduled for March in Columbus, Ohio.[9]

In late February and March 2015, several former NXT trainees previously working within WWE developmental system alleged misconduct by head trainer Bill DeMott, with Judas Devlin and Brandon Traven publicizing complaints which they claimed they had submitted to WWE management about DeMott back in March 2013 when they were still employed with WWE.[10][11] Meanwhile, other ex-trainees like Briley Pierce, Derrick Bateman and independent wrestler Terra Calaway also made allegations in 2015,[10][11][12][13] while previous allegations made in 2013 by Chad Baxter and Chase Donovan were also noted.[14] They accused DeMott of making trainees perform dangerous drills,[10] physically assaulting and bullying trainees,[10][11] using homophobic and racial slurs amongst other derogatory terms,[11][14] and condoning sexual harassment.[12] WWE released statements regarding some of the claims that came to light in 2013 and 2015; saying that investigations were done and no wrongdoing was found.[10][14] On March 6, 2015, DeMott denied the allegations, but resigned from WWE "to avoid any embarrassment or damage" to the company.[12]

WWE NXT is a professional wrestling television program produced by WWE that on the WWE Network in the United States. The show (which premiered February 23, 2010 (2010-02-23)) features wrestlers from NXT and WWE. The show currently serves as the flagship program for the eponymous WWE NXT developmental system.

From 2010–2012, WWE aired a previous version of WWE NXT which consisted of pairing "Rookies" with WWE main roster members (known as "Pros"), with the pairs competing in challenges until there was one sole winner. The winners of the show were Wade Barrett (Season 1), Kaval (Season 2), Kaitlyn (Season 3) and Johnny Curtis (Season 4). After season 5, the show was replaced with a homonymous television show featuring the developmental NXT roster.

Production[edit]

NXT was taped in large venues before the WWE Smackdown tapings and used the universal WWE HD set from 2010–2012. When WWE revamped the show, they moved the tapings to Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida, with the venue known as Full Sail Live. WWE started taping NXT in Florida on May 17, 2012.[92] Tickets are available free for Full Sail students; general admission for non-students is $10.[93] NXT aired on Syfy from 2010-2011. In 2011, when SmackDown moved to Syfy, NXT moved to WWE.COM, and after Season 5, NXT stopped broadcasting in the US until September 2012 when WWE reached a deal with Hulu Plus, on which new episodes of NXT began airing September 26, 2012.[94] On August 22, 2013, Hulu announced that all episodes of "NXT" would no longer be exclusive to Hulu Plus subscribers, and would be available for viewing through both Hulu and Hulu Plus.[95]

NXT began airing on the WWE Network on February 27, 2014 with a live event called NXT Arrival.
