Just got an email from WWE promoting NXT Full Sail tickets for January. I guess renaming Full Sail Live the NXT Arena on commentary was a sign they were staying and Meltzer was wrong saying they were leaving... I guess plans changed.

He never said they were definitely on the road in January

Even before the first week ratings came out, there was talk that Full Sail was only running weekly because they had no time to set things up and that a move to different arenas would take place in early 2020. As noted, once week one ratings came out, with NXT having such a strong show on 10/4 and having spent two weeks building it, the location was more likely to get the blame

WON - 10/14

There is a lot of talk regarding taking NXT on the road every Wednesday and looking at 5,000-seat buildings, similar to AEW. The target seems to be January, because WWE has inquired about buildings of that size to shoot television on Wednesday nights.

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. Full Sail is more cost-effective but the location and look, particularly with head-to-head competition, is likely part of the reason for the declining ratings. It was only done weekly at Full Sail to start because they rushed to get the thing on the air to get the jump on AEW and didn’t have time to book arenas. They’ve been talking to arenas for television starting in January

WON - 10/28

But hey - its everyone dunks on Dave time so have at it

To be honest, I don't think they should ever tour with NXT. Travel for Takeovers sure, but stick to Full Sail, build a hotel, bring the audience to you with package flight deals, and eventually we'll have a wrestling Disneyland and I can ride on a Macho Man roller coaster.

Flights will come in through Jacksonville.

Sadly the longest running angle in NXT seems to be over. 

Wish I could figure out how to remove the first part of these tweets.  Too damn long

This is the best payoff to a WWE angle in I-can't-remember-how-long.

Man, they really did cut it close...

 

My favourite story about NXT's TakeOver on Smackdown, 1st November was the police escort given to the bus and Shayna Baszler. Baszler was scheduled to be the first attacker and someone in the WWE had to text her the arena layout so she knew where to go and attack Sasha Banks/Bayley.
