– During a recent edition of the Getting Over podcast, WWE NXT Superstar Wes Lee discussed the changes from NXT to NXT 2.0. Below are some highlights (via WrestlingInc.com):

Wes Lee on NXT 2.0: “From Black and Gold to 2.0, I feel like it was more of a cosmetic change. Outside of the logo changing, the arena, having the overhaul and change of that, that was probably the main difference in how it was presented. Work rate never really quite changed. It was always still asked of us to deliver the kind of work rate that you would expect in NXT. But at the exact same time, they wanted us to have the opportunities to expand on our personalities and characters as well.”

On showcasing more of what he can do in and out of the ring after Nash Carter was released: “With the situation that happened, there was ample opportunity for me to start showcasing who I am as a person inside and outside the ring. That was a main focus that happened with 2.0. And now as we transition over to the, as you call it, the White and Gold, it didn’t necessarily change outside of the cosmetic changes again.”

Wes Lee captured the NXT North American Championship last Saturday at NXT Halloween Havoc.
