It's disclosure time again. If you are not a fan of spoilers, there is no need to read any further.
Especially if you are looking forward to all that the WWE has in store for NXT's future shows.
As some of you may know, NXT is a taped show. They work pretty hard when it comes to getting as many shows as possible in the can. Which usually means that the "new" shows you watch are at least a week old.
That being said, Thursday night NXT hosted their weekly tapings and the main event landscape officially changed.
As WrestleZone.com reports:
Several readers have sent in word that at last night's WWE NXT TV tapings at Full Sail University in Winter Park, FL, Big E. Langtson [sic] defeated Seth Rollins to become the new NXT Champion. Langston went on to face Camacho later in the tapings, and won that match as well.
This is great news news for Rollins as it appears he will not be heading back to NXT any time soon. Don't get me wrong, I get that Rollins' move to WWE TV was a step toward the main roster, but now it's all but confirmed that "The Shield" and Rollins will be around for some time to come.
Let's face it, fans have seen their share of "future stars" come and go. Who doesn't remember Nathan Jones and Heidenreich? Both men were touted as being the next big heels and given huge pushes only to fall flat on their faces.
Ultimately, I don't foresee this happening to Rollins and crew, but then again you never know. In the end, I am glad to hear that Rollins dropped the NXT strap and is closing that chapter of his life.
