WWE sent out a survey to their mailing list on Friday to figure out what fans like and don't like about NXT 2.0.

The survey asked fans a long list of questions that range from the look and feel of the show, the character development, whether the show feels too scripted or not, the length of the show, and other topics.

NXT ratings have dropped since it was rebranded in September as the company looks to engage with younger fans. The feeling from certain people in WWE management was that the previous version of NXT was too dark and focused more on older talent that had previously wrestled on the independent scene. Thus far, it doesn't look like the new NXT 2.0 has been able to draw in extra viewers and it appears that the survey is a step in trying to fix that issue.
