Details On New NXT Show Being Discussed, A 2019 Pilot For The Show

More WWE content on the way? Possibly.

Three hours of Raw, two of NXT, two of Smackdown, one of 205 Live, weekly, and at least four hours of PPV and pre-shows per months. It looks like WWE could be bringing us even more shows, as revealed by Fightful Select.

There could be more NXT content on the way soon. Fightful has learned that a once-pitched NXT product was at least in the planning stages in September, before the most recent outbreak.

Once pitched as "NXT Underground" well before "Raw Underground" happened, but it wasn't to be anything like the Raw Underground we see today, outside of having peers watch the show. The idea was floated around last year, but not everyone was on board with the idea, which was tabled. There was a pilot for the event shot at the WWE Performance Center in Summer 2019, which would have been the setting of the event. We're told it has long been a Ryan Katz project.

The latest we've heard is that some unused NXT talent and new EVOLVE signings were tentatively planned for the show. Again, we are unsure of how the recent COVID outbreak have affected this.

In the week since this originally aired, NXT has planned to return to training at the Peformance Center, where the show was originally set to film.
