Ricochet shares his thoughts on NXT 2.0

“WWE NXT” has gone through many changes over the past year, with the “NXT 2.0” rebrand becoming a very different product from the “Black and Gold” days. The new version may not have always been accepted by fans of the original “NXT,” but former North American Champion Ricochet credits him for “trying something different” in a recent conversation. NBC Sports Boston.

“I think in this business, it’s forever; it doesn’t stop. So I think NXT 2.0 is trying something new… I think it was so sudden and so fast that People didn’t get a chance to adjust.” Ricochet said. “That was the biggest aspect. But now I think it’s changing again – not back to what it was, but to something different, something that I think would be better.”

One of the things the “NXT 2.0” era has embraced is that sometimes core roster talent is brought in to compete, including Ricochet himself. He recently challenged Carmelo Hayes for the North America Championship at the “NXT” Worlds Collide – something that brought established star power to the show.

“I think now they have the sense to bring some ‘Raw’ or ‘SmackDown’ guys, or maybe some ‘NXT’ guys to ‘Raw’ or ‘SmackDown’ and it could start to grow into something really big. Who knows?” He added. “But I think it’s great to think about the future. I’m positive and really excited to see what comes out of it.”

During the end of last week’s one-year anniversary of “NXT 2.0”, a tease of more changes to come for the developmental brand surfaced, with the rebrand’s color logo resembling the black and gold colors of the past.
