WWE & Full Sail University issued the following announcement:

WWE, NXT and Full Sail University are combining forces to make entertainment history! The WWE franchise NXT is moving full-time to Full Sail University and Thursday, May 17th, 2012 will be its inaugural event. A powerhouse night of hard-hitting action returns to the Full Sail Live Venue as WWE invades the Full Sail University campus!

This event is free to all Full Sail students and staff with a valid Full Sail ID. Please send your ticket request to events@fullsail.com for tickets!

Sanders Analysis: Great move for WWE and it’s NXT program. Think having it be shown in front of the same crowd for a while is going to be a really great experience. It’s been many years since WWE has aired its shows from the same venue on a weekly basis. It’s going to be good seeing if WWE can switch it up every week and keep the content fresh. Also by them doing this maybe this will hinder websites from posting the results days early before it’s release date online. Might not stop completely as some students may feel inclined to make a little extra cash for some sites and post results via text, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Should still help out though but I’m very excited to see how this plays out. If done successfully it could be a sign for WWE to maybe think about if Raw or Smackdown should follow the same steps, down the road of course! Gonna be talking more about this this Tuesday on THE RCWR SHOW so join us by clicking here.
