WWE NXT Live! comes to RVA for the first time ever

Posted by: brad – Aug 25, 2016


"You know how baseball has a farm system? like the Squirrels players move up to AAA and then to the majors? But the squirrels are sorta the same as the giants?" explained former RVAMag intern Ben Weiner. "NXT is WWE’s developmental brand"

And your chance to catch what could be some of the next big names in WWE wrestling is coming to RVA's Altria Theatre this October.

Performers slated to show up include (please read in fancy announcer voice):

Samoa Joe

Shinsuke Nakamura


Scott Dawson

Dash Wilder

And other folks we don't have photos for like...

The Revival

Austin Aries

No Way Jose

And many more!

As you can imagine, talent is subject to change.
