As expected, this week’s episode of NXT will take place at the WWE Performance Center.
In a statement that was issued today, WWE confirmed that Wednesday’s NXT is being moved from Full Sail Live to the Performance Center.
“This Wednesday night, NXT will air live as regularly scheduled and emanate from WWE’s training facility in Orlando, Florida with only essential personnel in attendance,” the statement said. “The event was originally scheduled at Full Sail Live. Refunds are available at point of purchase.”
Full Sail University announced last Friday that group events on campus are being suspended through the end of April.
Dave Meltzer reported last Friday that — while Full Sail is suspending events — he’s been told WWE is “going with the idea that the Performance Center will be the site of NXT every Wednesday with no fans allowed for at least the next month.”
Last Wednesday’s NXT was also held at the Performance Center, but that wasn’t due to the coronavirus outbreak and the show had fans in attendance. Full Sail Live was unavailable because of Full Sail’s annual Hall of Fame week.
Last Friday’s SmackDown and tonight’s Raw have also officially been moved to the Performance Center with only essential personnel allowed to attend.
WWE has announced that Adam Cole will celebrate becoming the longest-reigning NXT Champion in history on Wednesday’s show. Candice LeRae vs. Mercedes Martinez has also been announced, with the winner qualifying for the number one contender’s ladder match that’s scheduled for TakeOver: Tampa.
