Later, further news broke concerning the development of an NXT India brand.
Currently, it is said that the plan is to launch the brand with an inaugural taping of a one-night tournament in Florida on Friday, January 22, and that special is set to air on Tuesday, January 26, the day that India celebrates Republic Day.
Overall, the plan for the Indian brand is similar to that of NXT UK where, once travel restrictions allow, WWE will be hosting full-time events in India and even develop an Indian WWE Performance Center, hopefully by the year 2022.
