Who’s “Running” Revamped WWE NXT?
VKM and Bruce Prichard are in charge of producing WWE NXT after the brand’s reset later this month. The good news is that HHH and his team will run the show.
After talking to sources regarding NXT: the day to day operation isn’t changing that drastically. Still very much in the hands of HHH, HBK, Regal, Bloom etc
However, the look of the weekly TV product will have a “Vince & Co” stamp on it. I expect it to be subtle to start… then?

NXT is set to resume live episodes later this month. In fact, the September 14th edition will be the brand’s debut of a new look, logo, and even theme song.
Our previous report states that Prichard and McMahon will make NXT’s “big decisions”. They will also look over the direction of the brand, as well as promotion and marketing.
Word is that it’ll look like the NXT of old, circa its peak era of 2015 to 2018. But there is some good news for avid fans of this brand.
Triple H Will Be “Running” Revamped WWE NXT
According to the Twitter handle, WrestleVotes, day-to-day operations won’t change too much. HHH, along with Shawn Michaels, Matt Bloom, William Regal, and others will be overseeing things.
With that said, the NXT weekly production of shows will have a “Vince & Co.” stamp of approval. Interestingly, when news hit of VKM overseeing production, #RIPNXT began trending on Twitter, worldwide over the past 24 hours.
Still, it’s important to note that a recent edition of Wrestling Observer Radio suggests that this NXT reset means that HHH will lose some power over the brand. Doesn’t sound good.
Will this be a successful transition? Only time will tell.
