What seems to be happening is WWE wants to be the top 'Indy' brand with their NXT show. I'm fine with that, but they are going about it in a way that they are purposely try to hurt companies like ROH. ROH is probably like bombing attendance wise like less than a dozen times before they go under, this move by WWE is purely to take out Ring of Honor. It seems weird, because WWE has pretty much had a positive relationship with them for the last decade, but something this year clearly changed that is causing officials in WWE pulling moves as a 'fuck you' to ROH.
A friend of mine, Joey Numbas on Wrestling Soup podcast, has been saying something that I agree with, WWE is gonna try to take out the top indie companies(the ones that created the Ambrose, Owens, Rollins, Punk's, Joe's, Cesaro's, Bryan's, etc of the wrestling world), especially those companies that always did those 'WrestleMania Weekend' events. If WWE kills the 'elite indies', that a dangerous thing, because that means no more 'indy darlings' that turned into the Kevin Owens', CM Punk's, Daniel Bryan's, etc. Instead we'll be getting more 'Mojo Rawley's' or 'Baron Corbn's'.
Just something to think about. While NXT is great, WWE using to hurt the rest of American wrestling would not be a good thing at all.
