    Hey Guys (and Gals if any) I agree with with some of your comments but what most of you fail to realize is that the WWE is a billion dollar business. But to continue to thrive as such, Vince needs top draws. Cena is injured, Bryan has retired, Undertaker is near the end, and Brock is sporadic. Its not that Vince does not like NXT, he's thinking to himself are there anyone or anybody on NXT's roster (past or present) that has the potential to come close to what Hogan did in the 80's, what Rock, Austin, Hart, Michaels and Undertaker did in the 90's, and what Cena, Brock, Bryan, Orton, and possibly Reigns and Ambrose are doing or were doing now.

    Vince has two issues with NXT. One, it is actual wrestling before entertainment as the main roster is the opposite. Vince from day one in the business wanted entertainment over wrestling. That he can change any time he chooses. Two is the bigger problem. NXT hasn't produced the next Steve Austin or Hulk Hogan or John Cena and he can't change that. In the history of the WWWF/WWF/WWE every face of the company has been an extension of those people's personalities but Vince wants a gimmick over personality. The people that succeed out of NXT already had years of working so they already had experience but now Vince moves people up to main roster so fast it's like throwing darts and usually he misses the board.

    I disagree with your first statement, WWE then WWF (before the eighties) was about pure wrestling. Yes, there were larger than life wrestling personalities who transcended back and forth between wrestling and entertainment (i.e. Gorgeous George and Andre The Giant) but never did the two genre really coincide until the mid eighties. Vince saw the potential during his father's tenure, but took a VERY HUGE risk when he took over the company. A risk that eventually paid off.
