Furthermore, Seth Rollins also saw the photo and left a comment of his own on what could have been the show to first introduce the architect to the casual WWE fans:

It’s worth noticing that before becoming what many believe is now the third brand for WWE, NXT was a reality show which saw superstars competing to earn a WWE contract.
After the fifth season, it was scrapped and then repacked as the NXT we know today which replaced the WWE’s then development territory Florida Championship Wrestling or FCW.
