The Young Bucks believe Full Sail audience might get bored of NXT

The Young Bucks

The Young Bucks recently spoke to Alex McCarthy of TalkSPORT where the brother discussed things like NXT being a competition and more.

While talking about NXT being broadcasted live on TV against their own show, Matt Jackson said that he is rooting for them to have a good show but their TV show will be better.

However, continuing on the topic, Nick Jackson made some interesting comments and said that the NXT’s debut on USA was interesting but the audience at Full Sail University might get bored with the product:

 “It was a fun show. But 10 weeks from now, those fans might get tired. It happened with IMPACT [doing a show from the same studio].”

As we noted before, WWE recently announced an extended partnership with Full Sail University and NXT is expected to stay in the full sail campus at least until the end of the year.


  • Raidertre

    Agreed. Can’t wait.

  • Keith Learmonth

    Indeed we will. Should be good stuff, from both side, I think.

  • Raidertre

    I guess we’ll all just buckle up, sit back and see how this whole thing plays out in the coming weeks.

  • Keith Learmonth

    I’ve learned in my time on this planet that when someone claims to be “at war” with another company, you shouldn’t take what they say about that company to mean they have some higher level of insider knowledge.

  • Raidertre

    Vince ruining could lead to fans getting bored (like how fans are bored on Raw, Smackdown and PPV’s). Are you really saying that when something you used to really like gets watered down you still have the same passion for it?

    I understand what Nick said, but I was simply diving deeper. My whole point about that was that he’s not bashing the product just because he made an honest opinion on what he thinks. You, I and him don’t know what will happen. He could have more insight. I mean, he is in that industry. You and I are just some guys on the internet providing thoughts based on what we read on wrestling sites and podcasts.

  • Keith Learmonth

    Vince ruining it is not the same as the fans just getting bored of seeing it. The Bucks didn’t mention the product changing in any way. In fact, Nick was quite clear about the fact he thought it might happen “because they’re doing shows from the same studio”

  • Raidertre

    Exactly. “Vince ruining it”, which would then result to fans complaining and not showing the same amount of interest. Hence Raw/Smackdown right now. Not different at all.

  • Keith Learmonth

    But that would be Vince ruining it, not “the fans just getting bored”. That’s an entirely different situation.

  • Raidertre

    But just like the Young Bucks, what you’re saying is also opinion based. What’s to say Vince won’t eventually put his fingerprints on the show in a couple weeks now that it’s not exclusive to the network? The show is hitting a bigger audience now. We don’t know what’s going to happen. We can only state what we think. Neither you or the Bucks are wrong. I just don’t understand why the Bucks giving an honest thought when asked a question turns into some people online taking that as “AEW guys running their mouths about WWE again”.

  • Keith Learmonth

    Historically, it worked out fine for ECW to run the same building like, once a week for 5 years. As long as you keep the quality consistent, people will keep coming.

  • Keith Learmonth

    But the point is, they’ve been there for years, and it’s almost always the same crowd… and nobody’s gotten bored yet. Nobody got bored of ECW running the ECW arena either.

    As long as the show can maintain some semblance of consistent quality, people aren’t going to get sick of it. And if they do, Triple H could always just book a month of shows in California, and they’d all be like “Bring it back to full sail!”

  • Raidertre

    They didn’t say anything insulting though. It’s a valid argument. After awhile, you could possibly get the same fans coming every week. And that same energy provided when NXT first premiered on USA could possibly fizzle. Not to mention, “Matt Jackson said that he is rooting for them to have a good show but their TV show will be better”. How is rooting for them talking crap? And you’re supposed to think your product is better than the competition.

  • CC

    Yes, but people do not have to attend every single show and people can travel to see it.
    While yes the audience is predominantly made up of people who go all the time, I would also hazard a guess there is a decent portion of the crowd who do not attend regularly and their is a rotating audience base. I mean, they still seem to sell well on Takeovers and have done shows elsewhere (they did one over here in the UK).
    Plus with the roster NXT has, they can mix things up and make every show feel fresh.
    Hell, where was Johnny Gargano on this debut TV show for instance? Unlike RAW and SD where they feel you need the same characters week in and week out, NXT has always mixed things up more.

  • CC

    Still does not make their opinion any more valid, and you know, they could have taken the high ground and not made some petty comment that has little to no validity.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    There really is not as much pressure for NXT to do well compare to AEW. I mean worse thing could happen to NXT they end up back on the WWE Network. But if AEW does bad there is no plan B. That what I getting from these AEW talking so much.

  • Raidertre

    I’d like to see footage of the whole interview because I’m pretty sure the interviewees asked them a question about WWE/NXT and they just gave their honest opinion. The media does this all the time to make click bait articles.

  • MT McGee

    I will agree that the AEW guys like to run their mouths more than they should, but in this case they might have a point. There’s a big difference between going to see NXT two nights in a row for 4 hours a shot and then not see them again for two months and going down there every single week for two hours.

  • CC

    They just cannot help themselves can they? Everyone talks about WWE being petty with their putting the show on Weds nights or whatever, but these idiots at AEW cannot help but constantly talk crap about WWE and now NXT. This is not a good look on the promotion as it just makes them look like they are obsessed with WWE.

    Simple fact is NXT has been recorded there for years and nobody has grown bored yet.
    Comparing it to TNA is not exactly a good comparison. NXT is constantly putting on great shows. TNA was putting on crap shows with people nobody wanted to see like Generation Me.

  • Dan

    I think their reasoning is that up until now it’s been one taping every month/6 weeks so it’s been a bit more spreadout for the live crowd at Full Sail. Now there’s going to be two hours every week it might get a bit much for the regulars who are at every taping to do.

    Having said that if the quality stays as it has then maybe they won’t care.

  • Jon Poyser

    I think that’s what the bucks are hoping for not what will actually happen

  • Keith Learmonth

    But, NXT has been going at Full Sail now since 2012 without any complaints so far. In fact, it’s still largely regarded as the overall best wrestling under the WWE umbrella by most fans I talk to.

    Why would people get bored of it now, all of a sudden?
