Is Superstars the NXT answer?!

Hi guys, this is another attempt at a blog (my last few haven't been posted for some reason) and this is a blog I've wanted to do for a while which may indeed improve quite a topical point amongst the IWC. What if, instead of moaning & bitching, we all switch over and watch NXT/Superstars.
First of all, before I get into my blog. A little bit about myself. I'm 17 and started watching wrestling in the early 2000's. I've spent a lot of time reading up and watching old TV episodes as well as documentaries to build up what (in my opinion) is quite a deep wrestling knowledge. Anyway, on with the blog...
Now before people start hating, there is some logic behind this idea of supporting NXT & Superstars more:
1- Often people complain about the quality of commentary on RAW & Smackdown. If you flick over to NXT you have William Regal & Matt Striker, a far better & more entertaining outlet. On Superstars you have Matt Striker and Josh Mathews, again a more competent and interesting team. Both of these teams are vast improvements on Jerry Lawler's cheesy, unbelievable commentary and (although it's improving) Booker T's rambling.
2- Often people complain about particular superstars who they feel do not get enough TV time. NXT has some of the best pure wrestling on any WWE programming. Such great wrestlers as Tyson Kidd, Justin Gabriel, Titus O'neil, Darren Young (Although they have both been promoted to the main roster now), Curt Hawkins & Tyler Reks to name a few. It gives the world a chance to see the future WWE prospects as well as some of the lesser known stars.
3- You actually have the chance to see quality "divas" wrestling rather than the 2 minute tag matches on Raw/Smackdown. They even had an all divas season of NXT.
All in all, NXT & Superstars have great potential and personally I feel if we all pull together and watch these shows in masses then we have an opportunity to show WWE what we want to see more of in terms of quality wrestling.
Thanks for reading and I welcome any feedback or questions!
