Please note that this article is simply my opinion on this fascinating storyline.

Last night on Raw, something astonishing happened.

WWE panted the seeds for their annual big storyline for the summer period. It all began during the main event of an, up to then, lacklustre Raw.

The main event, in itself was good, but what happened afterwards was simply brilliant.

The season one NXT rookies, led by Wade Barrett, absolutely destroyed the ringside area and attacked everybody in sight — announcers, producers, referees, Cena and the SES.

As of now, we have not been given an explanation for this. All we know for sure is that Raw has gotten a whole lot more interesting!

Not only did WWE plant the seeds for the summer’s storyline, in my opinion, they also planted the seeds for the demise of NXT.

Why you ask? Let me explain.

By October/November of this year, NXT will have no network and WWE does not seem to be too eager to find a new network for the show. All this has led everybody to believe, myself included, that NXT will be going off the air.

Now, Survivor Series is in November. I think you can see where this is going!

Just imagine, WWE continues with this angle throughout the summer. Then, it is announced that Survivor Series will be WWE vs. NXT with the losing brand disbanding. (I know NXT is a brand of WWE but WCW was owned by WWE during the first invasion angle)

Survivor Series would feature matches with talents from Raw and Smackdown vs. talents from NXT, much like WWE vs. ECW/WCW in 2000/2001.

Survivor Series would be a mini tournament. Whichever brand(WWE or NXT) scored the most points(through match victories.)

Obviously, WWE would win. This would give a storyline reason for the reason for the discontinuation of NXT.

In my opinion, this is a win-win situation:

  • WWE have their blockbuster summer storyline
  • WWE have a storyline reason for the end of NXT
  • The NXT rookies get some monumental exposure
  • WWE ratings will drastically improve
  • WWE fans finally get the interesting story lines we so desperately crave

So, members of the IWC, is this a good idea or did I waste 15 minutes of my time???

Thanks for reading and, as always, please let your opinion be known…
