Samoa Joe talked about the changes coming to WWE NXT during an appearance on Busted Open Radio.
WWE plans to give NXT a new logo, production and feel in addition to the changes to the way they use talent.
“I think that evolution’s only going to continue,” Joe said. “NXT’s always kind of been the impetus for experiment and change and doing things differently in WWE. And I think a lot of that change has reverberated down to the Smackdown and the RAW brands, and I don’t think it’s going to be any different in the future. It’s always going to be in a state of chaotic flux, it’s always going to be in a state of change, that’s just by the nature of what it is. We’re finding new and brand new talent and introducing these people to the world, and in order to do that you have to keep mixing up the pot.
“It makes a lot of fans a little but uneasy at times, I’m well aware of that, but at the same time it’s exciting to get on the ground floor and see somebody become a star in front of your eyes. And that’s happened so many times in NXT. I’ve been witness to it and it’s just kind of a wonderful thing. I think it’s a major appeal to the WWE universe. They get to be here and see Finn Balor happen, someone like Bayley happen, someone like Sasha Banks or Charlotte happen. They’re so popular in the universe now because they grew up with them here, in NXT.”
