Congratulations, you're wrong.
NXT is its own brand. It's not developmental, but it's not the main roster. If it was developmental, then why are guys like Balor, Joe, Aries, and Young there? Don't tell me they need to develop when all four of them are on par developmental wise as AJ Styles. If it's developmental, then why would they have had Rhyno in NXT previously? Why would they have used Too Cool to lose to Ascension? Also, since when has a developmental brand received virtually Pay Per View events AND started touring globally? If you consider NXT developmental, then your brain is developmental.
NXT needs a second singles title, it just does. Why? Because guys like Apollo Crews, Tyler Breeze, and Baron Corbin never worked for the NXT Championship picture. No Way Jose won't work for the NXT Championship. But does that mean you can't use an NXT secondary title to see how well they'll work with a higher brand's mid card title? Does that mean that we can't see a full development in a character the same way we used to see them develop? Wrestling has been built on having the premier men's title and a secondary title. That secondary title has always existed. Hell, even the WWE has used mid-card titles for their developmental companies. Don't believe me? Then maybe you'll believe the FACT that the OVW Television, FCW Fifteen Minute, UPW Internet, UPW No Holds Barred, and UPW Southern California/Shoot Championships exist(ed).
So to say that NXT doesn't need a mid card title because it ruins it, to me is like saying you just don't like wrestling. Wrestling needs the mid card championships the same way the NFL, NBA, and MLB needs Conference championships/pennants... Because they matter and they make both the main championships and lower championships mean THAT MUCH MORE.
Also, for those who think the one hour show limits the title limit... please keep in mind that NXT shows operate completely different than Raw and Smackdown. NXT is more about old school style of developing characters and champions while using new school wrestling. Raw and Smackdown are all about segments. NXT can and has fit more matches in their one hour programming than Raw and Smackdown have fit in their entire 5 hours of programming.
