This could literally be one the most stupid threads in the history of this forum.
NXT exists to try and recreate a small portion of the feeder system they DID have back in the early 90s/late 80s. Not the other way around. Back then, guys didn't "showcase their talent" on a steaming service seen by 10% of the audience, they learned their craft working in other full-fledged wrestling companies.
Also early 90s? Are we getting more star power than Warrior, Flair, Hogan, Sid Justice, The Undertaker, Jake the Snake , The Road Warriors, Randy Savage, and Bret Hart? All of whom worked in full fledged major companies for years before they touched the WWE ?
