- We noted back in the summer that a WWE production worker had uploaded a pilot for a "WWE NXT Kids" show to Vimeo but quickly deleted it once word got out. The pilot featured kids interviewing wrestlers and doing commentary with Corey Graves.
It looks like WWE is moving forward with the "NXT Kids" project. A new casting notice on Backstage.com reads like this:
