PWInsider.com is reporting that there was a lot of stress at Thursday night’s NXT tapings at Full Sail University. The reason cited was that TNA was having its Impact Zone return tapings not far away.
Impact Wrestling returned to Universal in Soundstage 19, which is sizably smaller than its previous venue in Soundstage 21. Both shows held tapings at the same time.
Though NXT tapes four shows at once, the belief was that they would be worried that the crowd would be more enticed by TNA’s tapings down the road. The report also states that some were surprised by how concerned WWE officials were given how often TNA is downplayed.
