NXT Will Have A Live Event In California During WrestleMania Week & The Main Roster Is Probably Not Happy
— Triple H (@TripleH) March 12, 2015
WWE – For one night only, NXT Live is coming to California, as part of WrestleMania Week!
You’ve seen the Superstars and Divas of tomorrow on WWE Network, but now you can see them live and in-person when NXT debuts on the West Coast Friday, March 27.
After that night’s WrestleMania Axxess event, head over to the nearby San Jose State University Event Center for the NXT Live Event, which begins at 10 p.m. Tickets start at just $15 and will be available at Ticketmaster.com this Monday, March 16, at 12 noon ET.
This is great news for anyone heading out to the west coast for WrestleMania, and my only selfish complaint is that this won’t be on the WWE Network. Other than that, this is great for the NXT brand. If you watch both NXT and the WWE, you should notice that one is better than the other, and it’s no longer just the writing. Besides guys like Daniel Bryan, Dolph Ziggler, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns, the WWE is far more focused on wrestling’s past than wrestling’s future. NXT is the exact opposite. They’ve accumulated talent from all over the world, and it’s all those different styles all working together that make NXT as great as it is. They don’t rely on past accomplishments to get people over, they put the guys and girls in the ring, let them do their thing and the audience responds. They don’t need “legends” of yesteryear cutting 10 minute promos about how many titles they’ve won or how important they used to be, they SHOW you why they’re as good as advertised and why we as fans should be excited for the future. Every week NXT puts on a great show and every live special is must see because the people behind the curtain and the people in the ring really care. I hope the live event is a huge success and I hope NXT continues to make the main roster mad. Competition, whether it be in house or elsewhere, has always been the best thing for pro wrestling.
