Take a sneak peek inside the newly redesigned home of the black-and-gold brand ahead of NXT TakeOver 31.
Earlier today, Triple H revealed to Sports Illustrated that NXT would be looking to WWE's roots to establish its own home base for its future. Enter the Capitol Wrestling Center. Deriving its name from the original name for the WWE territory established in 1953, Triple H says NXT is going back to the future.
“It’s a historic callback to where this all began,” said Levesque. “We gutted the Performance Center and it’s now rebuilt, so it feels like we’re going back to the beginning. To me, it feels like we’re going back to 1953. Just like then, we’re doing something different and new, taking the business to a whole new level.
“The Capitol Wrestling Center captures the feel and the vibe of NXT. We will have all the bells and whistles of the ThunderDome, but we’ll keep that NXT feel. It’s edgier, darker, and raw—you’re walking into the ultimate heavy metal soundstage.”
