The more I think on it, the more I'm convinced that there isn't really anything "wrong" with NXT aside from the usual nitpicking that we can do. Given the format of the show, the fact that it's only an hour long each week and the fact that it's ultimate goal is to build up talent to head to the main roster, I don't really think anybody can realistically ask for more.

There's all kinds of potential going on all over the place. In the women's division, there's Ember Moon, Peyton Royce, Billie Kay, Nikki Cross, Ruby Riot and Kairi Sane as the foundation at this point. The division will be bolstered with the likes of Abby Laith, Dakota Kai, Jazzy Gabert and Bianca Belair; plus, I think WWE would be well suited if they tried to sign Candice LeRae, Shayna Bazler and Toni Storm.

As for the tag team picture, you've got SAnitY, the Authors of Pain, Heavy Machinery, reDRagon, TM-61 (who returned to action recently during a dark match at either a very recent house show or the last batch of NXT tapings, a possible tag team consisting of Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch, the Street Profits are on the rise.

As far as the singles and main event pictures go, you've got Drew McIntyre, Roderick Strong, Johnny Gargano, Aleister Black, Andrade Cien Almas, the UK wrestlers like Pete Dunne, Tyler Bate, Wolfgang & a few others, the Velveteen Dream looks to be coming along slowly & steadily, Lars Sullivan has all the potential of the next great destroyer.

Personally, I think if the Cruiserweight Division was moved to NXT, thereby being placed directly under Triple H's control, it'd be icing on the cake.

I think NXT is still pretty great. There is rarely a match without a storyline attached, and NXT has proven that within just an hour each week, it can have 5-6 meaningful storylines going on at the same time. Involving all the belts.

The issue with NXT now, is that it is too big. You've mentioned at least 12 women there to make up a division that might get 1 match every two weeks. That's the issue, it has become popular so the likes of Samoa Joe, Bobby Roode, Nakamura, Adam Cole etc who were names outside of WWE, come to WWE to begin their WWE career. It's no longer guys on the rise that you've not really heard of. It's big names joining now, and it's becoming a 3rd brand in it's own right.

I don’t think there’s really anything wrong with nxt right now they’ve just been hit by major blows from all sides and need to recover. The buildup of Drew McIntyre as the face of the brand then losing him that quick is s major loss. Then you lose Asuka. Quite possibly the greatest woman wrestler to come to wwe in a long time, maybe ever. You just can’t replace her. I do like Billy Kay and Peyton Royce they’re really Improving and one of them more then likely will hold the gold. The main event scene is on life support because nxt has gave me no reason whatsoever to care about the current champ. I’m still willing to give him a chance but he has to Really start showing something. Aleister Black Lars Sullivan and Adam Cole will eventually help the main event get better. The tag team division hasn’t lost a step. I think NXT will rebound it will just take a few months.

I don't think their anything wrong really with NXT right now, but i do feel like they are still trying to ride the wave from 2 years ago when they had all these top indy talents on the roster and they forgot that they we're a developmental system first and a touring brand second. It still a good product to watch but they had to go back to what they had before the era of the balor, joe and nakamura and it's hurting the brand a little bit because fans of that brand want to see those top indy stars and while they still have some of them, they're not prominent like they we're back then and you're stuck with guys that you need to build up which is harder when you have fans that want to see stars on that brand.

The other problem bringing guys on the brand that have no business being on that brand to begin with. Drew Mcintyre is one that comes to mind right of the bat. The guy should have been brought back to the main roster as soon as he got sign, he doesn't need to be in the development system and is taking a spot from somebody that need it more and could have benefited from getting a bigger spotlight on them like a Allister Black who's should have been put on the main event level months ago instead of spinning his wheel doing the same thing for what seem like a long time.

If the brand was doing what it was preaching and being the place we're they are producing the future of the WWE, then i wouldn't be a problem but sometimes they put more focus on guys that are in the twilight of their career mostly because they have name recognition then putting the focus on future generation that can grow and become the next breakout star.
