The final episode of the "old" NXT before next week's re-launch did just 601,000 viewers.  Not counting the shows that were bumped to SyFy due to the Olympics, this is by far the lowest number since the Mar. 17 episode did 597,000, and that blamed on St. Patrick's Day.

The interminable segments following the hen and stag dos for Lumis/Hartwell did not help. God bless Indi and Grimes, who are doing their absolute damnedest with utter shit, but there is no rescuing that abomination.

During a commercial break, WWE promoted the new NXT on the Titantron during last night's Smackdown at MSG and it was booed out of the building.

Samoa Joe relinquished the title via his twitter account, citing medical reasons.

Seems like a work to get the belt off the old, fat, indy guy for the reboot.  Certainly there's a construction worker out there with 2 years of Division III football who's more deserving.

If Joe is really continuing to have medical issues, it's time for him to walk away.

Yeah I'm thinking it's a work (and a lousy one) but if he his problems are reoccurring he should pack it in and move into training and/or commentating , which he's pretty good at.

Seems like a strange work, because Samoa Joe passing the torch would be a perfect way to usher in a new era of NXT. If it's about the new type of wrestler they want, then what do they do with the booked #1 contender match? That wouldn't presumably now be for the vacant title. The only guy in that match with the kind of size that Vince is looking for is LA Knight, and he's right on the minimum requirement and 38 years old. I don't see any of those 4 guys (Knight, Pete Dunne, Kyle O'Reilly and Tommaso Ciampa) having any main roster potential.

PWInsider:

Samoa Joe is not expected out of action for an extended period of time but there's no word yet as to when he'll be back. We are told the decision to strip him was not a creative one but what was stated, WWE medical made the call, so the decision was made to strip Joe and crown a new champion tonight, trying to turn a negative into a positive by having the coronation of the next WWE NXT Champion as part of the NXT 2.0 broadcast.

There is no word whether Joe will be at today's taping.

Behind the scenes, there is a lot of trepidation among NXT talents going into tonight's taping. There had already been a lot of stress and concern among talents after the last batch of releases, since the feeling among many is that talents who did "everything they were supposed to" and/or were "great talents" were released, leaving some of those who remained that PWInsider.com has spoken with feeling as if everyone was now on thin ice and that even if they did the right thing, it didn't matter and their runs could be over at any point with no notice. While that was always true, there had previously been a feeling that they were in a protective cocoon of sorts thanks to Paul Levesque, but that feeling was ripped away obviously.

The fact that Paul Levesque will likely not be at today's taping due to his recent medical emergency has also raised concern as there's a feeling among some talents that they don't know what they are walking into today and don't even know if it's going to be Levesque's regular team running the taping or others from WWE. There is a great sense of unease among many talents as they wait, like everyone else, to find out what exactly NXT is supposed to be going forward, as a product.

The call-time for today's taping was moved up earlier than usual because of it being the first live broadcast in several weeks and with everything planned, including pre-tapes.

WWE NXT is slated to be live all through the remainder of September and October, PWInsider.com has confirmed.

I agree, i thought they would have Cardell Hayes use his stip and beat Samoa Joe for the title before i heard about the injury but yeah does seem strange

I don’t know what’s worse, the white boy rap song or the rainbow vomit that makes up the color scheme.  And the set looks like a cross between a ‘70s studio show and WWF Primetime.

3 matches in and this is the worst episode of NWA Power I’ve ever seen.

So far the only interesting match was LA Knight vs Breaker.
