NXT Superstar Matt Riddle was recently approached by TMZ Sports at the airport, where the Superstar was asked a plethora of questions about the NXT product and the relationship between the yellow brand and it’s main roster brands .
One of the most prominent questions Riddle was asked why he believes NXT continues to do so well in comparison to RAW or SmackDown Live, which attracts much criticism on a weekly basis. Riddle explained to the reporter that NXT has a different environment to the main roster.
What the competitors do on the yellow brand is fresh and it feels more believable in contrast with the over-scripted and watered-down nature of main roster Raw & Smackdown Live programming. Riddle told TMZ SPORTS... “Yeah. I think we’re just different. I know that’s the easy answer- but I’d say like, we’re different, we’re new, we’re fresh and we’re not the same kind of watered-down child’s product that WWE is kinda turned into a lot. So…if you go watch us, even though it’s scripted a lot of the time, it’s more real. It’s more believable.”
In order to rectify this, Riddle thinks one way would be to have WWE bring in a lot of talent from NXT to continue shifting attitudes on the main roster to change the landscape. “I would say we’d have to bring in some of the talent- and not like just a couple then and there.
You’d have to bring enough in so we could make the other roster members change.”
