The days of NXT 2.0 may be over as the developmental brand of WWE unveils a new logo that takes it back to the future with its familiar black and gold.
The former black and gold brand gave way to the multi-coloured NXT 2.0 in September 2021 with major changes to the show’s presentation and the stars appearing on it. Previous NXT stalwarts such as Adam Cole, Johnny Gargano, and Tommaso Ciampa soon made way for the new generation of Bron Breakker, Carmelo Hayes, and Tony D’Angelo.
All of this was happening amid a backdrop of changes behind the scenes in WWE. Triple H – the founder of the developmental brand – was forced to take a step back from his role in the company due to serious heart issues which led to surgery.
Many believed Vince McMahon and his team were having a greater hand in how NXT was produced but that notion has since been refuted by NXT boss Shawn Michaels and WWE Executive Director Bruce Prichard.
Now things have changed all over again in the company and Vince McMahon has been forced into retirement following lurid allegations levelled at him. Triple H is now the man in charge of the company’s creative direction as Chief Content Officer and it looks like that means for NXT black and gold is back.
The WWE NXT social media account shared a video of the colourful NXT 2.0 logo morphing into the new logo for NXT, notably without any mention of “2.0.”
