• WWE’s Plan For NXT In 2020 Revealed

With NXT losing to AEW Dynamite in terms of ratings every week (so far) in the Wednesday Night Wars, WWE is expected to make big changes to their developmental brand.

According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE officials are planning to move NXT to bigger 5,000 seat arenas and being on the road every Wednesday.

While WWE officials believe that the in-ring product in NXT is superior to AEW’s in-ring product, they feel that AEW Dynamite taking place in bigger arenas and having better production value results in their show looking more exciting, and thus beating NXT in viewership.

However, WWE will still continue to do the show at Full Sail University every now and then, just not every week:

“Regarding NXT in 2020, there is talk going around that they will continue to use Full Sail, just not every week, with the idea of doing some shows live at Full Sail and some in arenas outside Florida.”
