NXT ON USA: First look at the revamped Capitol Wrestling Center for new-look NXT

Posted on 9/05/121 by Colin Vassallo

The revamped NXT is starting from the September 14 episode
on USA Network, although if that is live or not remains to
be seen. WWE taped three weeks worth of NXT after Takeover
that enabled them to completely transform the Capitol
Wrestling Center into a more vibrant-looking arena.

Gone is the black and gold branding and the dark and dimmed
look which will be replaced by brighter colors, new logo,
and a bigger-looking setup. Despite still being held in the
CWC on the campus of the WWE Performance Center, the new
teaser video shown yesterday during Smackdown displayed the
concept drawing of how the new CWC looks, with much more
seats surrounding the ring and a new entrance. And gone are
the are security barricades and perspex separating the fans
from the ring as the drawings show zero barriers with fans
in front row pretty much being a touching distance from the

WWE allowed only limited number of fans for each NXT taping
and almost double of that for Takeovers. This new setup will
cater for a much larger audience with bigger seat risers
going all around to the entrance ramp.
