WWE has put a couple of big matches in the can for upcoming episodes of television, as well as the NXT Takeover: In Your House PPV show.
Even though the finals don't happen for several weeks, WWE did film the Intercontinental Title tournament finals on the May 26 tapings. We're told that the match was "unbelievable" and legitimately pumped up a very tired NXT PC crowd that was there to cheer. WWE has done this with a couple of the bigger matches that they have planned
NXT also had planned on filming the Velveteen Dream vs. Adam Cole match at Full Sail University for the upcoming In Your House on Thursday Night. The roster was asked to carpool there, and their cars will surround a ring that is placed on the filming set that is behind Full Sail University. We had heard as of 9 PM EST on Thursday that rain was pouring down and everyone was waiting for the filming to start, two hours after the planned time. The filming didn't end up happening until midnight.
