Meltzer reported that Triple H has been dropping hints about the move.

The idea would be for NXT to become a live two hour show that takes place from Full Sail University, and it could debut on October 2, the same day as AEW's debut on TNT. It was also noted some within WWE feel like the NXT - USA move is a "done deal and just a matter of time before the deal is announced". This was retweeted by the official All Elite Wrestling Twitter account. Live programming is highlight sought after and earning premiums from networks looking to add as many non-DVR viewers as possible.

In the early going, the FOX-owned FS1 received the most mentions as the likely destination for NXT, but days ago, longtime WWE home USA Network emerged as the apparent front-runner for the developmental brand. WWE chairman and CEO Vince McMahon runs Raw and SmackDown, and while he recently hired Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff to serve as executive directors of those respective shows, the final say with creative still lies with McMahon.

The result leaves City two points behind Liverpool , the team expected again to be its biggest rival for the title. But Tottenham were lucky to escape with a point after a sublime performance by Pep Guardiola's side.

Apparently, the USA Network has been at the table for the last several weeks in regards to bringing NXT over to their channel, according to the latest report from PWInsider. The hold up with FS1 is that the network carries 80-100 Big East Basketball games and it would lead to multiple preemptions of NXT.

While the Street Profits have been appearing on Monday Night Raw in backstage segments for quite some time now, it appears that the duo still aren't considered "main roster" stars.
