News From Last Night’s WWE NXT Tapings – Steamboat Injured, Cena Fills The House, More



wwe-nxt

- Here are some news and notes from last night’s WWE NXT tapings at Full Sail University in Florida:

* The next tapings will take place on October 11th. No word yet on which WWE Superstars will be featured.

* This was the first full sellout WWE has had at Full Sail, likely because John Cena was advertised. At least 30 people were reportedly turned away at the door because no seats were left. FSU staff ended up setting up a big screen and chairs in the lobby so other fans could watch.

* Matt Striker performed as ring announcer for the first and third episodes taped. NXT Diva Summer Rae worked the second episode.

* New announcer Tony Luftman made his debut. He worked commentary with William Regal and Byron Saxton, switching up the team throughout the night. Jim Ross commented all three main events.

* The storyline reason for Richie Steamboat not competing was that he got hurt at the last set of tapings. Steamboat told fans in attendance that he actually suffered a concussion.
