Attending WWE NXT At Full Sail University

The last WWE Live event has come and gone at the Amway Center and suddenly you find yourself craving even more of the non-stop action that only professional wrestling can provide. Why wait another year for the next WWE Live event to return to Orlando when all the action is closer than you think?

Back in 2012, the WWE and Full Sail University in Winter Park entered a partnership that would bring the WWE’s developmental program WWE NXT to Full Sail’s campus for live tapings on select Thursday nights.


Recently I was able to attend one of these tapings and being a big wrestling fan myself, I was interested to see what kind of experience the WWE could bring to a considerably smaller venue as compared to that of a large arena. Needless to say I was more than impressed!

Walking into the Full Sail Live Venue, one of the first things I noticed was how close all of the seats were to the in-ring action. With a capacity of 500, no seat was a bad seat.  In fact, the seats were so close that you could actually hear the wrestlers interacting with the crowd, something that is often missed when attending live events.


Another pleasant surprise was the fact that at many of these tapings the WWE will often showcase some of your favorite WWE Superstars such as Alberto Del Rio, CM Punk, Damien Sandow, and even Chris Jericho. On the night I went we had an extremely surprise visit from none other than the WWE Champion himself, John Cena.

One last thing I really loved about attending the WWE NXT taping was how excited the fans were to be there. Even though NXT is the company’s proving ground for future talent, the crowd was still loud as ever. This was great not only for the wrestlers as they often feed of the energy of the crowd, but it also made for a very fun night as well.


If you would like to attend a future WWE NXT event, make sure to visit their website and follow NXT on Twitter (@WWENXT) for updates on upcoming tapings at Full Sail University.

Tickets sell for as low as $10 and if you would like to sit ringside you can purchase Gold Circle tickets for $15. All ticket sales go towards a WWE sponsored Full Sail scholarship fund which the organization has already been fortunate enough to have donated two $10,000 scholarships to some extremely hard working students.

The next phase of the WWE NXT and Full Sail Partnership kicks off this summer with the opening of the WWE Performance Center! We are really excited about it opening!
