According to a fresh report, the rumoured switch for NXT 2.0 from TV-PG to PG-14 and an edgier product is still in the works.
WWE Chairman Vince McMahon was first reported to be pushing for the revamped NXT to become an “edgier product” back in September. While things settled down on that front as the revised show nestled into its new groove, a new report claims that those ideas are still very much in the works.
WrestleVotes have reported that the planned shift is still “very much on the table,” according to a source. Furthermore, the USA Network, which airs the show, is not opposed to the idea. As of yet, there is has been no word on if or when any changes could come into effect.
Within the origins of this NXT 2.0 concept was an idea that the programs rating would shift from TV-PG to TV-14. Source confirms that’s still very much on the table and USA Network is not opposed. If / when WWE decides to make the change is TBD.

On September 14th, NXT 2.0 debuted with a new set, logo, theme music, and a slew of new Superstars. The former black and gold brand is no more as that look has been replaced with a new colourful and vibrant design.
Bron Breakker has quickly risen to the top of the card since the rebooted version of the developmental brand debuted, vying for Tommaso Ciampa’s championship at Halloween Havoc. In addition to Rick Steiner’s son, plenty of new faces and personalities have been seen on television.
Mandy Rose and her Toxic Attraction stable presently control all of the gold in the women’s division after a clean sweep at Halloween Havoc that saw Rose defeat Raquel Gonzalez for the NXT Women’s Championship and Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne capture the NXT Women’s Tag Team Title.
