NXT Put Plans In Place For A Second Show

According to Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, NXT could be expanding their schedule in the near future in order to accommodate more live shows.

In the latest edition of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Meltzer noted that Triple H is currently attempting to find the budget for further shows for the black and gold and gold brand that would facilitate more ring time and exposure for his roster.

As of yet there is no word on whether this would mean NXT hitting the road for live events once again – which would be unlikely considering the promotion’s recent stance on returning to a house show schedule – or whether WWE plan a sister-show for the brand to air exclusively on the WWE Network.

Though there is no concrete plan in place, the journalist does state that talks are ongoing to add some type of new show.

The development of NXT stars took a hit during the COVID-19 pandemic. Not only were they unable to be showcased once the regular live events were cancelled, but they were also unable to train as they once would have done when WWE moved it’s television tapings into the Performance Centre earlier this year.

This latest edict by the company is an attempt to make up for the time lost.

The brand’s next huge event will be NXT TakeOver: WarGames which will be headlined by a WarGames bout between The Undisputed Era and The Kings of NXT on December 6.
