Variety is featuring an interview with Vince McMahon where he talks about the end of ECW on SyFy tonight and gives details on what the concept of NXT will involve including how the show will be broken up into two or three seasons and will feature developmental talent from WWE’s Florida Championship Wrestling territory.
“This is an opportunity to show another side you’ve never seen. These kids crash and burn a lot. By putting them into this environment we’ll find out if they can make it. There’s no better way to develop skills than being in front of an audience. And that makes for good television. ‘ECW’ feels old, it feels tired. Sometimes our brands need freshening up. You have to continue to reinvent yourself.”
