WWE had trademarked “NXT” to use for the new Tuesday night show on the SyFy network. Sources have confirmed that ECW will now be called WWE NXT, with the NXT standing for Next Generation.
Apparently the show will be built around an entirely new cast of characters with the idea that WWE fans can see these characters develop and debut only on SyFy. Expect a lot of talents from WWE developmental to be called up.
This new show will replace ECW on Syfy on Tuesday nights at 10/9c and will debut in three weeks on February 23 (two nights after the Elimination Chamber event).
