Of course, Vince McMahon has never been hands on with the show, and according to the man referred to as the father of NXT, he wont be now, either. Triple H and a few members of his team are tweeting about the move to live and USA Network:

There have been so many moments for @WWENXT. First shows, first international tours, first TakeOvers, and TONIGHT we go live on @USA_Network. Weve done a lot to get here, but this isnt the destination, this is the start…and you havent seen anything yet!We. Are. N-X-T!

It took a lot of hard work from a lot of hard working, talented people to get to this point. The hard work doesnt stop and theres a lot of hard working, talented people ready to give their all. We are ready for tonight. We. Are. NXT. #NXTonUSA pic.twitter.com/m5FxgQwlks

Tonight @WWENXT goes live on the USA Network. Im so proud to have played a small role in creating a brand that has flourished into something beyond all of our wildest dreams. Let the games begin. @TripleH @WWE #dream pic.twitter.com/gBzDAJvgRQ

I started in NXT as a “broken toy” but landing there gave my career life again. I knew then what I know now: the whole world needs to experience this. And so they shall, starting tonight on @USA_Network.

I didnt get to spend as much time there as I would have liked to but @WWENXT will always feel like home for me. Its full of good and very talented people, both in and out of the ring, and everyone there has worked so hard to get to this point.Tonight is going to be special.

I think about my years in @WWENXT all the time. I was told all the time Remember, these are the best days of your life…and they truly were. I am beyond proud to have been a part of this dream, to where we are now. Tonight #NXT debuts on @USA_Network. Congratulations to all ❤️ pic.twitter.com/RuE56wxC0O

Lots of people are weighing in on @WWENXT making its historic debut on national TV tonight, and I just want to say this honestly never would have happened if it wasnt for me (and @WWECesaro) though Im used to not getting credit for things by now. Enjoy the show xo -SZ

NXT had no plans or hopes for us. Now were the first team to win the NXT, Raw, and Smackdown titles. Oh yeah, they go live tonight. @WWENXT

I spent 9 amazing months in @WWENXT and I couldnt be more grateful for that time. Since then my friends and other amazing performers have taken it to new heights! And tomorrow its premiering on the @USA_Network at 8/7c! #WEARENXT pic.twitter.com/F2OLkpcQK4

NXT & the WWE Performance Center created a new platform for pro wrestlers to grow. In 2016 the Cruiserweight Division became its first extension giving many journeymen like myself a place to compete regularly on a worldwide level. Were excited for the future. #NXTonUSA #205live pic.twitter.com/L19efYuScQ

Tonight is it. Tonight everything changes forever. Tonight, the #UndisputedERA ushers in a new ERA not just for @WWENXT, but for all of @WWE. #AdamColeBayBay pic.twitter.com/HxYL1Dvw4y

Seen any we missed, Cagesiders? Have any NXT memories or reflections of youre own youd like to share.

– WWE recently filed to trademark “Follow That My Friend” and “FTMF” for various uses. They are already selling new WWE NXT t-shirts with the phrase, which Triple H said after his NXT UK “Takeover: Cardiff” media call, a possible reference to the AEW All Out event held later that night.

– Shane McMahon took to Twitter today to further the storyline with Kevin Owens. Last nights SmackDown saw Owens serve Shane with a $25 million wrongful termination lawsuit after Shane fired him last week. Shane announced today that he will allow Owens to work upcoming WWE live events.

“While considering a resolution to this ludicrous lawsuit, I will allow @FightOwensFight to perform on @WWEs upcoming tour of The Philippines, China, and Honolulu, Hawaii,” Shane tweeted.
