We’re starting to see the edgier version of NXT

New, 25 comments

There were rumors and reports that NXT could be going in an edgier direction moving forward, and we’re seeing that more and more each Tuesday night on USA Network. For starters, wrestlers are now using the word “shit,” as Bron Breakker did during a promo.

Seth Rollins seems happy about it:

Elsewhere, they pretty blatantly tried to sell sex with pre-tapes like Indi Hartwell and Dexter Lumis on their honey moon having a pillow fight that featured Johnny Gargano hiding in the closet hearing moaning and comments like “hit me harder.” When he tried to sneak out, Lumis flashed him a thumbs up while showcasing a bunch of condoms he had stashed in his pocket.

We’ll see what kind of returns WWE gets on this in the weeks and months to come.
