WWE announces first NXT on-road show in almost three years

WWE announces first NXT on-road show in almost three years

The wait is finally over! WWE announced Thursday the first NXT show to take place outside the state of Florida since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Vengeance Day 2023 will head to the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Saturday, Feb. 4. It will be the brand’s first show outside either Full Sail University or WWE’s Performance Center, both located in Orlando, Florida, since February 2020. The last NXT show not held in Florida was TakeOver: Portland in Portland, Oregon. This will also mark the first time that an NXT Premium Live Event takes place in North Carolina.

WWE put out a press release earlier in the day confirming that Vengeance Day will indeed be the developmental brand’s first show outside Florida since early 2020.

“For more than two years, we have heard the requests from the WWE Universe to bring NXT back on the road, and that day has finally arrived,” WWE Senior VP of Talent Development Creative Shawn Michaels said in the press release.

The news is sure to excite WWE fans around the world, especially those in the Tar Heel State.

NXT Premium Live Events (previously TakeOver shows) have carved out a unique niche for themselves over the past decade, with rabid crowds and an excellent atmosphere. Back on the road in 2023, NXT will look to replicate the success of their TakeOver events going forward.

Ahead of Vengeance Day in February, NXT will present its upcoming Premium Live Event, DEADL1NE, on Saturday, Dec. 10. DEADL1NE will presumably be the last Premium Live Event from the Performance Center for the foreseeable future.

Here’s the updated card for the event:

  • Bron Breakker(c) vs. Apollo Crews – NXT Championship
  • Pretty Deadly(c) vs. The New Day – NXT Tag Team Championship
  • Carmelo Hayes vs. JD McDonagh vs. Grayson Waller vs. Joe Gacy vs. Axiom – Men’s Iron Survivor Challenge (No. 1 Contender for the NXT Championship)
  • Zoey Stark vs. Cora Jade vs. Roxanne Perez vs. Kiana James vs. Indi Hartwell – Women’s Iron Survivor Challenge (No. 1 Contender for the NXT Women’s Championship)
  • Alba Fyre vs. Isla Dawn
