NXT is easily one of the best wrestling shows in the World right now, arguably it's number one with Lucha Underground on hiatus.
NXT showcases the likes of Finn Balor, Bayley, Samoa Joe and Tyler Breeze all absolutely crushing it week in week out as they look to impress enough to make that step up to the WWE main roster.
However, it seems like the plethora of stars in NXT are angry with one female wrestler in the company, Blue Pants.

Blue Pants Hate
According to a report from The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, via Wrestling Inc, there is a tonne of heat on Leva Bates - otherwise known as Blue Pants on NXT - from other NXT wrestlers.
The resentment towards Bates apparently stems from the fact she only appears part-time but was still flown in for the NXT Takeover special in Brooklyn, and put straight into a pretty big angle with Alexa Bliss ahead of full-time NXT women.
That was a spot that a large amount of actual full time women on the NXT roster would have killed for, getting to side with the tag team champions The Vaudevillains as they won the titles in front of a sellout 16,000 crowd.
That's not all however. There is also heat on her because of the fact that Blue Pants gets to sell her own merchandise and doesn’t have to split the cut.
The belief is that she’s making more money than the NXT women, because she’s free to do indies and her rate has shot up off the back of NXT. She’s getting all the perks of being an NXT star, without any of the restrictions.
If this is how NXT women feel about Blue Pants, who is an actual wrestler, then just imagine the hate towards Tough Enough winner Sara Lee, who won a $250,000 contract despite not being able to wrestle.
