WWE tapes EVOLVE as second show for NXT

Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select is reporting that WWE has filmed material for a second NXT show, tentatively titled NXT: EVOLVE.

Sapp says that Gabe Sapolsky and Jeremy Borash are overseeing this project which has been taped from a warehouse close to the WWE Performance Center, giving the show a different look from what we’re accustomed to. Josiah Williams was the host of the show but there was no live commentary during tapings.

NXT: EVOLVE is set to feature developmental talent, who before the pandemic kicked in, toured Florida doing non-televised live events in front of small crowds to start preparing them for the bright lights of WWE television.

Ever since last March, there have been no live events and those in developmental have not practiced for an audience ever since. NXT: EVOLVE will give those training at the Performance Center an opportunity to get back into performing and build their characters in front of TV viewers.

The show is expected to be a WWE Network-only broadcast.
