Well of course there’s room for more. WWE is a huge wrestling company and has a lot of elements to juggle. There are so many wrestlers around that it is hard to find something for all of them to do, which can get a little confusing in a hurry. Even though you have seven hours of television between Monday Night Raw, NXT and SmackDown, there are always going to be some people with nothing to do. Some of those names might be a little busier in the future.
The NXT brand has been expanding in a big way in recent years. Not only has the show moved to the USA Network where it airs for two hours every Wednesday night, but it has also expanded internationally with NXT YK. There are also rumors of an NXT India and a potential minor league NXT show, but it turns out that they might be getting another unofficial extension.
According to Wrestlinginc.com, WWE is considering developing a weekly lucha libre series, which would basically be seen as NXT Mexico. One wrestling under consideration to be brought in as a consultant is Chavo Guerrero Jr. who has worked as an agent on both Lucha Underground and GLOW. The show would be seen as something similar to the lucha libre show WCW considered in the late 1990s, with the pilot being available on the WWE Network. There is no word on when or where the show would air.
WWE does have some luchadors available. Check out some of their WWE efforts:
Opinion: WWE is running the risk of going completely overboard with the amount of shows that they are running. At some point you are just not going to have the audience to support all of these shows and they are already at this point before getting to the international shows. I can understand the idea of wanting to expand, but we are approaching a weekly show for every day of the week. That’s quite a bit, as it has been with just the three major shows.
What do you think of the idea? Who should be featured on the show? Let us know in the comments below.
