Vince McMahon had a few new ideas for NXT 2.0. One of those thoughts included more profanities. It seems that Bron Breakker broke the mold on that as he called his opponents “bitches” in the first segment of the show. They also featured other profanities in future segments that needed to be bleeped. That is all a part of the plan.
According to a follow-up report from Fightful Select, the “overhaul” of NXT 2.0 is ongoing. This will “extend beyond the visual” aspect as well. It was noted that signs were already dropped this week that they “loosened” restrictions on language. They have also become more receptive to character points that deal with alcohol like we saw in the Josh Briggs bar fight segment.
The language on the program is already being loosened, as highlighted with some of the colorful language on Tuesday’s program. We’ve been told that even character points like that of Josh Briggs were shot down in the past to refrain from bar or alcohol imagery
WWE NXT 2.0 is a brand new product, and fans are coming to accept it. Some might not appreciate the new direction, but it is the company’s intention to secure a larger portion of that precious 18 to 49 demographic. Some of those people might appreciate programming that is a little less “family friendly.”
