WWE NXT is a sports entertainment television program produced by WWE that debuted on February 23, 2010.[2] Described as a hybrid between reality television and WWE's scripted live event shows, the premise of the show follows select talent contracted to WWE's developmental territory Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) in a competition to become WWE's next breakout star with the help of mentors from WWE's Raw and SmackDown brands.[2][3]

The show originally made its debut on Syfy in February 2010, replacing ECW, which concluded the previous week. Less than a month after its premiere, it was announced that WWE SmackDown would move from MyNetworkTV to Syfy in October.[4][5] NXT aired its final episode on Syfy on September 28 to make way for SmackDown, and began airing as a webcast at WWE.com for visitors from the United States on October 5. Outside of the United States, the show is still televised.[6][7]

Although this show has a similar premise to WWE Tough Enough, and debuted after Tough Enough was canceled the first time, NXT ran concurrently with the new Tough Enough series that debuted in April 2011.

Contents

Format

WWE NXT pairs up wrestlers from WWE's developmental territory Florida Championship Wrestling (dubbed "Rookies") with wrestlers from WWE's existing Raw and SmackDown brands (dubbed "Pros"). Each episode features the Rookies being mentored by the Pros as they develop their characters and performance skills in front of a live audience. The pairings also enable the show to crossover into WWE's Raw and SmackDown programs.[2][3] As the length of each season differs, features of the competition occur at different times accordingly.

Weekly challenges

In addition to matches, weekly challenges are held during the competition to further test the Rookies' physical and mental skills.[8] Past physical challenges include a keg carrying contest, an assault course contest and a "Rock 'Em Sock 'Em" tournament.[8][9][10] Past non-physical challenges include making 30-second promos on a given topic and selling programs within a time limit.[11][12]

During seasons 1 and 2, the winner of the weekly challenge receives a special prize such as a main event match, a talk show segment or a feature on WWE's official website.[8][11][12] One of the more frequent prizes given out to the winner is an "Immunity Pass", which gives the holder immunity from elimination in the next round of polls.[13][14]

From season 3 onwards, a greater emphasis on challenges was placed on the show. Instead of awarding prizes to the winner of the challenges, points are instead awarded to the winner with a cumulative tally of points recorded before each of the first three polls. The Rookie with the most points before the next upcoming poll is awarded immunity.[15] In season 3, one point is awarded for winning the challenge.[15] In season 4, the number of points vary on the difficulty of the challenge.[16][17] In the result of a tie-break, the audience is then asked to vote for the Rookie they want to get immunity.[18]

Season 4 also saw the introduction of challenge matches involving the entire roster of Pros or Rookies where the winner would be given the chance to swap their respective Rookie or Pro for another.[19][20]

Polls and eliminations

In various weeks, polls are held and evaluate the success of each Rookie and determine the winner of the competition.[21] The poll rankings are entirely determined by votes from the Pros and starting from season 2, votes from fans via WWE's official website.[22] In the Pros' votes, each of the Pros vote for their favorite Rookie, but cannot vote for their own Rookie.[21] Their votes are based on the following four criteria:[23]

  • Win-loss record within the show
  • Strength of opponents
  • Work ethic
  • "It" factor

Initially in seasons 1 and 2, the full results and rankings from the poll were revealed.[24] However since Week 11 in season 2, only the elimination is revealed.[25] The first poll, usually held a third of the way through the competition, determines the Rookies' rankings. Subsequent polls are held several weeks later near the end of the season, where the lowest ranked Rookie without immunity is eliminated.[24] Season 2 was set to use this format, but was changed to have the first poll an elimination poll.[14][26] Season 3 will also use the second season's format.[15]

The show continues until the season finale, where final two or three Rookies appear. One or two final polls are then held to determine the winner of the competition.[24][27] The prize for the winner is a (kayfabe) WWE contract as well as a championship match at any pay-per-view.[24][28]

Outside of the polls, Rookies can still be eliminated via an executive decision from WWE management. Season 1 saw Michael Tarver and Daniel Bryan eliminated by management for a lack of self-confidence.[29]

The first season of NXT began airing on Syfy on February 23, 2010 and ended on June 1, 2010.[27][28] The majority of the season 1 cast was revealed a week before the premiere on the series finale of ECW. However, before the season's premiere aired, Skip Sheffield's Pro was changed with William Regal replacing the announced Montel Vontavious Porter (MVP).[30][31]

Near the end of the season, several changes were made to the original plan of the format. The season was shortened from the planned 17 episodes to 15 episodes.[27][32] In the first elimination episode on May 11, both Michael Tarver and Daniel Bryan were eliminated by WWE Management and removed from that night's Pros' Poll after both made comments about wanting to be voted off. The show ended with three eliminations, with Sheffield ranked last in the Poll.[29] Carlito was released on May 21 for refusing rehab after violating WWE's Wellness Program. Subsequent Pros' Polls were held without him for the rest of the season.[33]

The winner of season 1 was Wade Barrett, who began performing on the Raw brand.[34] Immediately after the conclusion of season 1, the Rookies were used in a storyline that had them forming an alliance called The Nexus.[35][36] Led by Barrett, the group invaded the Raw show in an attempt to gain WWE contracts for the losers of NXT season 1. The invasion consisted of the group attacking John Cena as well as other wrestlers and WWE personnel.[35][37] Daniel Bryan was (legitimately) released from his contract when he strangled ring announcer Justin Roberts with Roberts' tie during the first ambush, which WWE reportedly felt was too violent for their TV-PG programming.[38][39] His release was put in a storyline, where the rest of the NXT rookies kicked him out of the group for showing remorse for his actions and declared he wouldn't be seen in the WWE ever again.[40] The group were eventually all signed to Raw, but continued their disruption of the show, including an attack on WWE Chairman Vince McMahon.[41] Bryan eventually returned to WWE two months later at SummerSlam, when he became the surprise seventh member of Team WWE in a seven-on-seven elimination tag team match against The Nexus.[42] After their initial attacks, Barrett along with the other Nexus members were barred from competing for a WWE championship.[43] However, more than a month later, the ban was lifted and Barrett announced that he would invoke his title shot at Night of Champions for the WWE Championship in a Six-Pack Challenge.[44] At the event, Barrett lost in his title match to Randy Orton.[45] Meanwhile at the same event, Bryan became the first Rookie to win a WWE championship when he defeated his former pro, The Miz, for the WWE United States Championship.[46]

Barrett later got a fair singles match against Orton once more, which he also lost, in spite of having Nexus weakening Orton before. This set up Orton to be defeated by the Miz who cashed in his Money in the Bank, which he had held in spite of losing his US title. Barrett would later win the Intercontinental title on Smackdown from Kofi Kingston.

The second season of NXT started on June 8, 2010 and ended on August 31, 2010.[26][48] The season 2 cast was revealed on the first season finale on June 1, 2010.[49] The season was originally planned to last twelve weeks. However, it was later extended to thirteen weeks.[26][48] In this season, the polls were different as rankings were based half on Pro votes and half on votes from fans via WWE's official website.[26]

The first poll was shown in Week 4.[14] Originally, the polls format was set to match season 1, with a non-elimination poll followed by weekly elimination polls three weeks later.[14] However, the first poll was made a surprise elimination round on the night with a second elimination poll held four weeks later instead.[14][26][50] In addition, a double elimination stipulation was added to the fourth NXT poll in Week 11.[51]

The winner of the season was Kaval, who began performing on the SmackDown brand.[52] Along with Kaval, Alex Riley was immediately promoted to a WWE brand, aiding his Pro, The Miz, on Raw.[53][54] Over a month later at Hell in a Cell, both Michael McGillicutty and Husky Harris made their first appearance since the second season by helping Wade Barrett win his match against John Cena while disguised as fans.[55] A few weeks later, the two were made members of the Nexus.[56] Kaval invoked his title shot at Survivor Series for the WWE Intercontinental Championship against the reigning champion Dolph Ziggler where he was defeated.[57] Kaval was released from his contract in December 2010.[58]

The third season of NXT started on September 7, 2010 and ended on November 30, 2010.[15][61] The season is Diva-exclusive and is the second different contest produced by WWE to find a new Diva, the first being the WWE Diva Searches held between 2003 and 2007.[52] The first four episodes of season three were aired on Syfy. Due to the debut of SmackDown on Syfy in October 2010, NXT left the channel and became a webcast at WWE.com for visitors from the United States from the fifth episode onwards.[6][7] A new interactive website for NXT was also launched at the beginning of the season to accommodate the move.[15] The reward to the victor was changed in contrast to the previous seasons. Unlike the first two male victors, the female victor of season 3 would not get a shot at a title of her choice (the only title being the WWE Divas Championship) but rather, a WWE contract. Other changes in the third season include a greater emphasis on challenges for the first three polls where the winner of the most challenges before the next upcoming poll would be awarded immunity. The first elimination poll took place five weeks into the competition.[15]

The majority of the season three cast was revealed on the second season finale on August 31, 2010.[52] However, before the season's premiere aired, prospective rookie diva Aloisia was dropped from the show. On screen, Aloisia's exit stemmed from an argument between Aloisia and her pro, Vickie Guerrero, forcing Guerrero to fire her.[62] In real life, it was reported that Aloisia was allegedly dropped from the show after Amazon fetish photos of her were leaked onto the Internet. However in an interview, Aloisia herself is unsure whether this was the reason for her exit or not.[63] Guerrero later revealed her new rookie in the season three premiere to be Kaitlyn, who would ultimately win the season and started performing on the SmackDown brand.[15][64][65] None of the losing divas stayed on with the shows, in spite of Aksana having briefly appeared on Raw to steal the Million Dollar Championship from her storyline husband Goldust, however A.J. would later join the SmackDown brand in May of 2011. Aksana also returned to programming in August of the same year, debuting with a new look to seduce Smackdown general manager, Teddy Long and Maxine returned to NXT Season 5 to attack AJ.

The fourth season of NXT started on December 7, 2010 and ended on March 1, 2011.[64][69] Returning to the male-orientated format of the first two seasons, the season 4 cast was revealed on the third season finale on November 30, 2010.[64] In a change from the third season, "immunity points" are now rewarded to the winner of each challenge, which vary depending on the challenge's difficulty. The person with the most points before the next upcoming poll is then awarded immunity from that poll.[17]

During Week 5, it was announced the winner would earn a WWE Tag Team Championship match with their respective Pro as their partner. In the same show, Dolph Ziggler won a battle royal consisting of each of the Pros, and as a result of the win, Ziggler was able to trade off his Rookie Jacob Novak for Byron Saxton, who was originally mentored by Chris Masters.[19] Similarly during Week 8, a Fatal Four-Way elimination match was held between the remaining four Rookies. Brodus Clay won and as a result, was able to trade off his Pros The Million Dollar Couple (Ted DiBiase and Maryse) for Alberto Del Rio, who was originally mentoring Conor O'Brian before O'Brian's elimination on Week 7.[20]

The winner of the season was Johnny Curtis, earning himself and his pro R-Truth a shot at the WWE Tag Team titles.[69] As of April 18, when R Truth turned heel by attacking John Morrison, Truth and his rookie Curtis still have not had that shot at the titles. Curtis would eventually debut on SmackDown in June when he stated that he won't be challenging for the Tag Team titles with R-Truth.

NXT Redemption, the fifth season of NXT, started on March 8, 2011.[69][74] The season consists of six rookies chosen from all previous non-Diva seasons returning to compete for a spot in the sixth season of NXT alongside a WWE Superstar of their choice as their pro for that season.[74][75] Immunity and the immunity points system have been replaced in this season with a "redemption point" system, where, in the result of a tie at the bottom place between the pros' poll and the fan vote, the person with the most redemption points avoids elimination.[74] On June 25, 2011, Chavo Guerrero was granted a release from the WWE, leaving Darren Young without a pro, unlike Carlito of season one where he was released after his rookie, Michael Tarver, was already eliminated.

On June 28, after Conor O'Brian was eliminated, Derrick Bateman was brought back. Daniel Bryan also returned as Bateman's pro, but weeks after not appearing with Bateman after he turned heel, Bryan said he was disowning Bateman due to the rookie's actions. On August 5, Vladimir Kozlov was also released from the WWE but, similar to Carlito, his rookie was already eliminated. While no divas from season three were part of the competition, since the end of regular eliminations June 28 both AJ Lee & Maxine have returned as the girlfriends of Hornswoggle and Bateman respectively. Announcer Todd Grisham left WWE after the August 25 episode, while Maryse had been removed due to injury and eventually she was released by the WWE. Jack Korpela, who serves as the play-by-play commentator for the Smackdown portion of WWE Superstars officially replaced Todd Grisham as NXT commentator effective September 6, 2011.

In later episodes, NXT Redemption was devoid of the typical challenges and eliminations while pros have feuded with each other, Young (later joined by JTG) with host Matt Striker and announcer William Regal, Yoshi Tatsu with Tyson Kidd and Bateman/Maxine with O'Neil/Hornswoggle/AJ. On September 27, Hornswoggle delivered a letter to AJ and O'Neil claiming he was being anchored to the dead NXT ship and needing to set sail to Smackdown, leaving Titus (the last rookie being mentored) without a pro.[76] On October 5, NXT moved to its new day and time, Wednesday at 4 p.m. EST.

It was announced on October 6 that Darren Young was suspended by WWE for 30 days for violating of the company's wellness policy.[77] On the October 12 edition of NXT, O'Neil and Bateman were referred to as the final two rookies in the competition with no mention whatsoever of Young, implying that he was eliminated from the competition due to his suspension. Young's suspension ended on November 5, and Young returned on the November 16th edition of NXT.[78]

Currently at 37 episodes, the fifth season of NXT is by far the longest to date. The second longest was the first season, at 15 episodes, while the second through fourth each had 13.

Jack Korpela and Michael Cole*** September 13, 2011
Josh Mathews and Matt Striker**** November 9, 2011
Jack Korpela and William Regal September 6, 2011–present

(*) – Friday Night SmackDown play-by-play commentator and former NXT color commentator, Josh Mathews, was substituting for an absent Todd Grisham. This repeated on the November 16, 2011 edition of NXT, but this time, he was substituting for an absent Jack Korpela.

(**) – Matt Striker became the alternate color commentator on NXT beginning May 3, 2011 due to Regal's increased in-ring schedule (Regal would continue as commentator when he wasn't wrestling). This ended on the May 17, 2011 edition of NXT when Regal would return to the announce table as normal.

(***) – Michael Cole served as special guest color commentator on NXT for the May 31, 2011 broadcast substituting for an absent William Regal. Cole would also substitute for Regal again on commentary on the September 13, 2011 broadcast due to Regal and Striker competing in a match that night.

(****) – Matt Striker and Josh Mathews were guest commentators on NXT for the November 9, 2011 broadcast substituting for the absent William Regal and Jack Korpela. With NXT taking place during the WWE's European tour not all members of the roster were flown overseas, this assumingly included Korpela. Meanwhile Regal was said to have been visiting family while NXT was taped in his home country of England.

Production

On February 2, 2010, WWE Chairman Vince McMahon announced that a new weekly program would replace the canceled ECW in its time slot on Syfy. McMahon described the show as "the next evolution of WWE; the next evolution of television history."[79]

On the February 4, 2010 episode of WWE Superstars, the new show's name was announced as WWE NXT.[80] The name was later discovered to be trademarked already in the United Kingdom by National Wrestling Alliance affiliate Scottish Wrestling Alliance (SWA) which also used "NXT" as their brand for upcoming stars. Both parties ultimately reached an agreement that resulted in SWA releasing the "NXT" trademark in favor of a new one before the show's debut.[81][82]

The show's format was revealed in an article by Variety on February 16, with a press release from WWE made shortly later that day.[2][3] NXT is the second reality-based series produced by WWE, the first being WWE Tough Enough which aired between 2001 to 2004.[2] Due to WWE's nature of airing weekly shows without hiatus, the current plan for NXT is to split the year's set of episodes into multiple seasons.[2]

In March 2010, WWE announced that their show WWE SmackDown would move to Syfy in October, with NXT leaving the network at the same time.[4] The show aired its final episode on Syfy on September 28.[6][83] Shortly after their March announcement, WWE also stated their intent of looking for another channel to broadcast the show.[5] Despite their initial comments, WWE began to air the show as a webcast on their official website for American visitors as of October 2010.[7]

The current opening theme song for the show is "Wild and Young" by American Bang, which has been used for each season with the exception of the third season.[1] During season three, the show's opening theme song was "You Make the Rain Fall" by Kevin Rudolf.[84][85] Also promoting it as an "official theme song" for the show, WWE NXT used "Get Thru This" by Art of Dying as bumper music during all five seasons of the show.[86]

International broadcasters

Outside of the United States, NXT is televised on a number of channels in many different countries.
