Vince McMahon is said to be fully in support of making the new version of NXT an 'edgier' product, at least if recent reports are to be believed.
The report notes that the show could see harsher language used and more of an aggressive in-ring style, with it also being stated that there could be "more lenience on female character gear".
Fightful has learned of discussions within the company about some plans for NXT 2.0 that are purportedly directly from WWE Chairman Vince McMahon. Fightful heard that were brought up included NXT 2.0 targeting more of a P18-34 demographic, including everything from in-ring work and aggression to harsher language and the like. Another point that we haven't verified was more lenience on female character gear.
Of course, we haven't seen these changes have almost certainly not been implemented yet, with one wrestler telling Fightful that they hadn't been made aware of any further changes to NXT
We haven't heard much more outside of a brief internal acknowledgement that this has been discussed. We've not learned that it has been implemented thus far. One talent went as far as to say they'd believe it when they see it when we asked if they'd been made aware, which they'd not.
