NXT used to do house shows until the pandemic put a stop to all live events. Known as the “Coconut Loop,” the Florida shows provided valuable experience to the young and hungry stars on the yellow brand. The good news is that NXT 2.0 is set to resume live tours.

It was revealed during tonight’s NXT program that the brand will resume live tours from June 10th. The brand will showcase eight brand new events that will run in Tampa, Largo, Jacksonville, Venice, Citrus Springs, Orlando, Melbourne, and Cocoa Beach between June and July.

Other than the Stand and Deliver show in Dallas, most of the young stars of the colorful brand haven’t wrestled in front of a different audience. Dave Meltzer previously stated that WWE has no plans to take NXT tours outside the state of Florida.

The NXT 2.0 roster is filled with insanely-talented stars who have yet to perform in house shows. Working non-televised shows is definitely a learning curve for performers not deemed ready for NXT TV. Are you excited for NXT live tours?
