• The Message
It was widely speculated of NXT being the losing workhorse while the Fox backed Blue brand being dominant in Survivor Series but the results came as a shock to both critics and fans as WWE booking has been infamous in their treatment of NXT stars.
The Black and Gold brand not only dominated other brands but also overshadowed it’s counterparts. As it clearly shows how WWE is backing on the developmental brand against Tony Khan led AEW but also has a wakeup call for the main roster as how they’re lacking in passion in comparison to NXT stars.
NXT deserves all the praises and maybe we need to consider once again on the tag of ‘Developmental Brand’.
