NXT shot a pilot episode for a new NXT show tentatively titled “NXT EVOLVE,” according to Fightful Select.
Back in December, it was reported that WWE was working on a potential new NXT brand and show, which would focus primarily on WWE’s developmental talent and would act as a “minor league” system for the main NXT brand.
The potential new brand is reportedly being run by former EVOLVE head Gabe Sapolsky, and Jeremy Borash.
Just a pilot has been shot for now, so it may not be a guarantee that the show will fully come to fruition.
Fightful says that the pilot was shot at a warehouse in Florida and has more of a “fight” feel to it. Graphics and a belt have already been created with the “NXT EVOLVE” branding.
