-NXT is in Lakeland, Florida at Lakeland Armory tonight with the following advertised talent: Finn Balor, Bayley, Samoa Joe, Asuka, Shinsuke Nakamura.
-NXT is in Cocoa, Florida at the Cocoa Armory on Friday. The show was not listed on the WWE live events page when I looked up the show, but the lineup is probably similar to the Lakeland event.
-NXT is in Tampa, Florida on Saturday at University Area CDC Gymnasium. The show was not listed on the WWE live events page when I looked up the show, but the lineup is probably similar to the Lakeland event. Seriously, what the hell is up with the WWE live events page?
