WWE NXT is well into the NXT 2.0 era, and that new era brought along a host of changes to the look, the tone, the roster, and to the target demographic of the brand. NXT 2.0 is going for a younger demographic and an overall more youthful feel, and while some aspects of the rebranding have worked, other elements have landed with more of a thud. The brand is constantly evolving though, and to that end, WWE sent out a survey via email asking fans on its mailing list to rate a variety of things about the show, the match outcomes, the stars, and more (via PWInsider).
The survey asked some specific questions, including whether they watched the previous version of NXT and whether they thought the current version was better, the same, or worse. They also asked fans to rate the outcomes of the matches, the new look, the quality of wrestling, the variety of stars being featured, unexpected moments, the show’s length, and the entertainment value of the show.
They were also asked whether they agreed or disagreed with several statements, and you can find those statements below.
