WWE Making Major Change To NXT Tapings Beginning Next Week

WWE is making a major change to the NXT tapings beginning next week. The company will be taping the show with Florida Championship Wrestling beginning next Thursday, May 17th at 7 PM from the campus of Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida. The taping schedule for the combo tapings are as follows:

  • May 17, 2012
  • June 14, 2012
  • July 5, 2012
  • July 19, 2012
  • August 9, 2012
  • August 23, 2012
  • September 6, 2012
  • September 20, 2012

This is all part of a plan to upgrade WWE NXT while making it easier to transition developmental talent to the show. Triple H is advertised for next week’s tapings.

WWE held a show on the campus last December where pilots for a prospective WWE Network series were taped. An exclusivity deal was signed with Full Sail University, making them the only pro wrestling promotion that can use the venue for professional wrestling.

    I've always wanted to see FCW on tv…. So if their taping together does this mean we will be able to see FCW to? Would love to see some more of the up and coming talents, along with Ricardo Rodrigues doing "flips and stuff".

    If wwe work this right nxt will become tna's competitor and be the bridging brand between fcw and raw and smackdown,

    I say go for it, push it to the hilt, nxt has given plenty of top players the platform to show what they can do,

    Cancel superstars make nxt two hours and push it as a bridging brand

  • ChaosBlue

    Remember the initial poster of No Way Out for this year? It had NXT as one of the brands. Does that mean…

    Does this mean that there is nothing happening before SmackDown except for the matches taped for Superstars?
