It’s the end of an era for WWE and Full Sail University as the relationship is no more.
Since last summer, WWE has been holding NXT TV events from Orlando, Florida at the Capitol Wrestling Center due to the COVID-19 pandemic. There’s a lot of changes going on behind the scenes in NXT as they will be taping TV episodes next Monday and Tuesday that will last them a month.
This is being done to upgrade the Capitol Wrestling Center, which is the Performance Center. Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE’s relationship with Full Sail is over and the Performance Center is the new long-term home of the show.
On Tuesday’s NXT, Samoa Joe and Karrion Kross crashed through some barricades. This was the storyline reason for upgrading the Performance Center.
The plexiglass may be gone as WWE sent a survey out to fans asking if they like it or not. It was stated that the belief regarding television, the show looks too dark, so the idea is to make the studio brighter with more lights and more colorful looking.
As noted, WWE also plans to recruit and push younger and taller wrestlers instead of using older and smaller workers.
