UPDATED: A new report has some more details on the team meeting held before last night’s NXT and disputes the notion that Triple H said they were “bullied” off Wednesday nights. Fightful Select reports that several wrestlers and members of staff on the brand “vehemently denied” that the NXT boss said anything close to the idea that NXT was bullied off the night.

According to the site, those sources spoken to said that The Game focused on the reasons for the move including the idea that airing a night after Raw will be good for the brand and that there are a lot of opportunities with the replay airing on Peacock. He said that the move was in the works for a while, which the site said is apparently true with USA Network feeling the idea out as far back as last year. The Game also reportedly said that he hopes now that people can focus on the show rather than the viewership.

In an additional note, Dave Meltzer has corrected his original report, noting on Twitter that “while the description was largely what was said, two people have said the ‘bully’ line was never said.”

ORIGINAL: It was reported during the latest Wrestling Observer Radio that a ‘team meeting’ was held prior to last night’s taping of NXT about the show moving to Tuesdays.

They spoke about the success of the brand, dating back to the first sold out show for NXT prior to Wrestlemania 31 in 2015. It was also said that “the competition” then came to their night, Wednesday night, to “bully” them. It was noted that this was the “opposite of what they told the talent” 18 months ago. Now, it was said, they have RAW as a lead-in and Tuesday nights to themselves, so “everything is going to change.”
