WWE’s NXT brand has begun the 2.0 era of the show, and reportedly Vince McMahon wants the show to move in an edgier direction with the on-screen content.

Fightful Select recently reported that the Chairman of WWE is hoping to make more changes going forward. “Among the points Fightful heard that were brought up included NXT 2.0 targeting more of a P18-34 demographic, including everything from in-ring work and aggression to harsher language and the like.

“Another point that we haven’t verified was more lenience on female character gear, though it wasn’t specified what exactly that means. ‘Keep up with current affairs with promos and character verbiage’ was another point said to be brought up.”

It remains to be seen how NXT changes going forward, with Vince McMahon reportedly more at the helm for the revamped version of the developmental product.
