The latest regarding WWE NXT going back to running events in traditional arenas

Shawn Michaels did an interview with Scott Fishman of and here is an excerpt…

Fishman: “NXT has begun touring throughout Florida. It’s great to see. I’ve gotten to take in a show or two. I think it’s necessary when bringing up new talent. Yet the weekly USA Network show broadcasts from the Performance Center. As we move more and more out of the COVID bubble, do you see more NXT shows like a Halloween Havoc in traditional arenas?”

Michaels: “Absolutely. As you mentioned, we started with the Florida loop, or the coconut loop, as we call them. We’ve briefly discussed getting out for our premium live events. Do we want to do that at the end of the year or start at the beginning of the new year? We had Stand & Deliver for WrestleMania weekend, which is the first time many of our talents were out of the Performance Center. It’s certainly something we want to get back to. We have every intention of doing that. We’re actually having talks on how we want to go about executing that. This will go beyond shows in the state of Florida for certainly premium live events but regular live events. As you know, that is part of the developmental process. They have to get out there and perform on the main roster all around the world. They might as well get their feet wet in NXT.”
