The hype came too early. We are living in a weird wrestling world at the moment with all kinds of things changing almost on a daily basis. Some of these changes are a lot bigger than others and that has been the case with a story that seems to be coming. While some fans may not be happy with it, the move will change the way wrestling works, though it hasn’t been announced just yet.
Despite being hyped up for the last week, there was no announcement regarding the future of NXT on this week’s Monday Night Raw. Rumors had been circulating over the last week that NXT would be moving to the USA Network at some point in September, with the announcement schedule to take place on Monday. There was no such announcement, though there is always a chance that the announcement will come next week.
Dave Meltzer commented on the situation after Monday Night Raw went off the air:
Levesque told the NXT talent this on Thursday. It's coming soon enough. Stock market price already reflects the story. https://t.co/YmARQZQ3UJ

NXT has tied in with Monday Night Raw before. Check out the announcement of several NXT talents coming up earlier this year:
Opinion: I think this is just delaying the inevitable as it’s hard to believe that there have been so many rumors about the move without it actually happening. There was no necessity to have the move take place this week so if they wait another week, it isn’t the biggest problem. If nothing else, it can give them an extra week to get all of the details settled.
