The WWE NXT brand is not something that former WWE writer Freddie Prinze Jr. is a fan of since he recently called it “absolute garbage.”
Freddie Prinze Jr. is most known for being a successful Hollywood actor, but he’s also a lifelong pro wrestling fan that also worked for WWE.
From 2008 to 2010, Prinze worked as a writer for WWE that wrote promos, booked storylines and helped as an acting coach. Prinze has said in the past that he quit WWE after a comment from Steve Austin about how tough it was to be around your family if you are in WWE. Since Prinze was a dad that wanted to be around his family more, he quit WWE and never looked back.
As a lifelong wrestling fan that also worked for WWE, Prinze decided to start his own wrestling podcast and also has plans to start his own wrestling promotion at some point in the future.
During the most recent episode of his Wrestling With Freddie Podcast, Prinze Jr. talked about receiving a voicemail from Impact Wrestling referee Daniel Spencer, who talked about Impact and mentioned why Freddie should give the brand more of a chance. Prinze said he’ll try to give Impact a chance while going on to trash WWE NXT.
“I promise you this, sir, I have AXS TV. I have that channel, so I don’t need YouTube, and you have my word I will watch. I know this, it’s gonna be better than NXT because ain’t nothin’ in the world worse than that goddamn show.”
“I’ve given it a chance. Like once every six weeks, I watch a little bit, and it is absolute garbage. It went from my favorite promotion, when it was black and gold, to unwatchable. Un-watch-able. Like a local theater production. the last two times I’ve tried, it was terrible.”
This week’s edition of NXT featured Bron Breakker as a guest on the Grayson Waller Effect talk show while Carmelo Hayes and Apollo Crews had a terrific opening match that was the complete opposite of absolute garbage.
