    I could be in favor of it. I mean it’s not a bad thing just because. It was bad when WCW did it with Nitro, and it’ll be bad now given WWE’s track record.

    It should be used to give guys who don’t get TV time now some time to shine. It should be used to try new things, let guys like Tyler Reks and Curt Hawkins try out stuff that they come up with. It should be used to introduce new stars and showcase some NXT talent.

    It shouldn’t be used to give more time to Johnny Ace and John Cena, or anyone else WWE insist on pushing way too much during the course of a typical Monday Night RAW.

    However we all know WWE will squander a good opportunity to build new stars, so it’ll end up be worthless and hard to watch. Should just give that hour to the new NXT that actually sounds like it deserves to be on TV and will be a quality wrestling show.

      You answered your own post with that last paragraph. I could cite for you a number of prominent, horrible booking decisions that have happened in just this last year alone although I think I’d be preaching to the choir. Adding an hour every week to this show isn’t going to suddenly make this same creative team book and write great stuff out of nowhere. If only it were that simple.

      I think you have the right idea. If the USA suits want Monday night to be WWE wrestling night, fine. I, too, would put NXT at that first hour. You’re right. That really could be the best “wrestling” TV show of the entire week especially if the reports about Vince basically staying away from it are true.

    Quick follow up from F4Wonline.com: -

    Backstage reaction is dread and concern by and large and purportedly a number of them believe as I do here that this will be a short lived experiment one way or the other. They think it will be back to two hours before the year is out and that wouldn’t surprise me at all. I was being more generous with my “inside of a year” prediction.

    They certainly should be concerned. It’s a terrible idea that should be stopped before it even starts.
