WWE renamed their Performance Center, but a change to the Capitol Wrestling Center will mean more than just altering the sign outside the building. They have totally renovated the space and plan to present content with all the bells and whistles.
The company is also bringing back live fans to a certain degree. Friends and family will be in the crowd as the NXT Superstars perform at NXT TakeOver: 31. WWE is trying to return to normal, but it’s a slow process, and they are taking all precautions.
While speaking with Sports Illustrated, Triple H said that that they have turned the Capitol Wrestling Center into a “heavy metal soundstage.” He resisted a move to the ThunderDome, but the WWE Performance Center got a huge facelift all around.
“We will have all the bells and whistles of the ThunderDome, but we’ll keep that NXT feel. It’s edgier, darker and raw—you’re walking into the ultimate heavy metal soundstage.”
WWE NXT TakeOver: 31 will go down tonight on the WWE Network. This will be quite a show that they needed to book around a COVID-19 pandemic to make happen. It appears that their move to the Capital Wrestling Center will be quite a new experience for fans of the black and gold brand.
