NXT hasn't run in Full Sail since September 2020 as the university shutdown during the pandemic. Starting with NXT TakeOver 31, NXT has run out of the Capitol Wrestling Center. The brand started running its weekly television events at Full Sail beginning in 2012.

Fightful Select reported on August 15 that NXT would be taping upcoming episodes on Monday, August 23 and Tuesday, August 24.

According to Meltzer, the tapings are being done so there is time to make upgrades to the WWE Performance Center. Meltzer writes, "The belief is that on television, the show looks too dark, so the idea is to make the studio brighter with more lights and more colorful looking."

NXT is set to hold its TakeOver 36 event on Sunday from the Capitol Wrestling Center. You can view the scheduled lineup for the show by clicking here.
