WWE NXT has been taking place at Full Sail University throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. But the black-and-yellow brand is likely to move out from there from this week.
According to a report by POST Wrestling, all NXT shows will be held at WWE Performance Center starting from this Sunday’s TakeOver 31. In addition to that, 205 Live shows will also be taped at the Performance Center, the report said.
“Sources tell POST Wrestling that NXT will be making the move over to the Performance Center for the foreseeable future. Additionally, we are told that 205 Live will also be running out of the Performance Center beginning next week.”
NXT Executive Producer Triple H said during the TakeOver 31 media call that the show “will have a unique look and feel, something totally different that hasn’t been done, so far”. The Game went on to say that he hoped the fans found the new look “game-changing”.
He also talked about the upcoming WWE Draft and if NXT will be a part of it.
For the first few months into the Coronavirus lockdown, WWE taped their RAW and SmackDown episodes at the Performance Center. It hosted WrestleMania 36 as well, in a first-time-ever zero audience environment. Only Superstars and essential personnel were allowed into the premises.
The main roster shows have now moved onto The ThunderDome in the Amway Arena.
