In regards to the recent rumor that NXT will be moving from the WWE Network to USA Network, Dave Meltzer provided an update as to why Vince McMahon wanted it on USA Network and his likely involvement with the brand as it gears up to take on AEW.
"I was told why he wanted to go to USA — it’s not a money thing. It’s because he has a better shot at not losing. He doesn’t wanna lose that battle, but the feeling is that like it’s better because wrestling fans are used to the USA Network, they’re not used to FS1 — UFC fans are used to FS1, but it’s not a station that they’re familiar with and this and that and in theory you would think that should only matter for two or three weeks, it actually does mean a significant amount.”
“It also means that no matter what that everyone who also thinks that Vince McMahon isn’t going to get involved — you know like, it’s on the USA Network. Vince is not going to be hands-off on a show on the USA Network."
