NXT hosting live virtual fans starting Wednesday


NXT sent out an email Tuesday inviting fans to be part of the virtual experience for this Wednesday's show.

The Capitol Wrestling Centre (aka the Performance Center) in Orlando, Florida, has a similar setup to the WWE ThunderDome in Tampa, Florida, but they have been reusing fan footage from past Raws, SmackDowns, and pay-per-views instead of live fans. 

It's believed those who received the invitation have attended WWE shows virtually in the past. However, NXT will be using who manages virtual audiences for daytime shows like The View, Tamron Hall, Kelly Clarkson, and others which is different than WWE's process.

The show starts at 6:30 PM Eastern for attendees who must be 18+. 

NXT rolled out their new look for the Performance Center at this past October's TakeOver 31.

This Wednesday's show will feature the kickoff of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic with the Undisputed Era vs. Breezango and The Grizzled Young Veterans vs. Ever-Rise.
