Because Vince still calls all the shots on WWE. Also, NXT doesn't have to pander to sponsors and a PG crowd the way the major roster does. They can concentrate on putting on a much more wrestling-oriented program since all of their shows are on a network already designed for wrestling fanatics. Raw and Smackdown still have the job of reeling in potential viewers.

Yes.

#Sawft are awesome. I hope when they get moved up to the big roster they let them do their thing. Sawft Vs New Day could have some epic promos.

my point is that the quality of NXT is 3000x better. THAT sells itself. Vince needs to learn but never will. it's a shame.

While I do enjoy wrestling, I have to admit the current product leaves a little to be desired. It a real shame because the roster has a lot of young talent, but until the 70 year old man who has lost touch with his fan base for almost 20 years controls the reins we are not going to the best of the WWE. Here's an interesting read and gives a good explanation as to why NXT is so much more fun than the main roster.

Yeah it was, I was there. Dunno if the mics picked up on it but there were chants of "Boring" during the Divas and 6-man tag. Says a lot when most crowds chant "This is awesome" at any match that goes over 5 mins. Although Del Rio and Cena's promo exchange was great, they totally killed the crowd heat when they went to break right before the bell. Really wanted Cena to win, I miss the US open challenge every week.
