The Young Bucks (Nick, to be precise) think that NXT has made the wrong move by keeping the show at Full Sail University.
The show debuted on USA last week and will soon complete a full move from the WWE Network but WWE will keep taping at the university and Nick reckons the audience will eventually get tired.
The AEW tag team sat down for an interview with talkSPORT recently and discussed several things. They admitted watching a bit of the show last Wednesday but Nick seems to think that the same thing that happened to Impact could happen to the WWE brand.
"It was a fun show, but in 10 weeks from now, those fans might get tired," he explained. "It happened with IMPACT. It took a while, but some of those shows at the Universal studios, those crowds were dead. It’s definitely possible that this happens to this NXT audience because it’s the same formula."

The Young Bucks discussed AEW: Dynamite, the Wednesday Night Wars, constant rumours, AEW plans in the UK, how they've prepped to wear two hats without knowing it and so much more!
He revealed that everyone at AEW was expecting Vince McMahon to put NXT on TV and the only thing that was unknown was the channel it would be on.
"Ah man," he said with a laugh. "We all knew in AEW, we all knew they [WWE] were going to make that exact move, it was just a matter of what channel they were going to choose. So we were prepared for them to do this because it’s Vince McMahon.
"He’s done this for years and years! He’s tried to kill territories his whole career so what he’s trying to do is kill us from the start. But, you know what? I feel like it’s not going to happen this time around because wrestling fans need this and wrestling fans know that they need this. If it’s 20 years since we had a real, true alternative, I feel fans finally understand that and they know that and feel the momentum. I feel like we’re ready for it."
Matt reckons the competition will actually benefit AEW as it will bring the startup promotion more attention.
"I really think it will bring more attention to us and it’s going to make their product better, our product better because they’re competing head-to-head with us and they have to put on a better show," he said.
No One's Getting Tired Of NXT On TV
We can't know if Nick's right or wrong about the audience getting bored watching a show in the same location but he's correct about it happening before.
We'll just have to wait and see, but we don't imagine television viewers tiring of the show at all.
