WWE aired plenty of amazing moments in NXT history from Full Sail University’s arena, but those days are over. The company pulled out of Full Sail Arena so they could do their own thing during the pandemic at the Capitol Wrestling Center, and they are not coming back.
The company allowed students at Full Sail to work on their NXT television tapings. That was an extra incentive for the university, because their students received real-world experience. A few Full Sail University graduates also received jobs from WWE.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE’s time at Full Sail University is done. Their relationship with the institution is reportedly finished, but no explicit reason was given as to why.
NXT is taping at least over the next month ahead of time with the time off to upgrade the Performance Center. The relationship with Full Sail University is over and this is now the long-term home of the show.
WWE is taping three weeks’ worth of NXT programming after TakeOver: 36, and then they will present a revamped Capitol Wrestling Center. That change for NXT’s home might be noticeable, because the caged plexiglass barricades could be leaving for good.
It’s unclear is WWE and Full Sail University will ever work out another agreement, but their time together is over for now.
