When asked on the NXT TakeOver XXX media call why NXT won't be at the ThunderDome, Triple H explained, "Right now, with trying to move SmackDown, SummerSlam, Raw for the foreseeable future to the Amway Center, as spectacular it's going to be, right now, they have enough on their hands. Our partnership with Full Sail is one of the most important partnerships we have and right now we are there. In this environment, you can never say never and we'll see how it goes. On Friday night, everybody is going to get to see their first shot of the ThunderDome. I can't tell you how much we've missed everyone, our fans, everyone, and having them be a part of it. That energy is the secret sauce of everything we do and I cannot wait to get them back, whether it's on video or any way possible. The sooner we can get them back, the better. WWE fans are everything to us. For the foreseeable future, staying in Full Sail is where we're at and we'll see where everything goes. We're figuring it all out, just like everyone else, day-by-day and where we can do things to the best for our fans and the safest way for our performers and crew."
