WWE NXT TV Taping Spoilers for May 21st Episode

WWE held a new set of NXT television tapings at their Performance Center on Tuesday in Orlando, Florida.

The first taping was for Tuesday’s live show and the second taping held right afterwards will be for the May 21st episode of NXT.

In regards to the reason for the double set of television tapings, Fightful Select’s Corey Brennan reported that his sources stated that the reason for last night’s double tapings was due to WWE production staff and agents will be traveling to Saudi Arabia next week for the King and Queen of the Ring 2024 event in the country. Brennan was reported that several production staff in NXT not traveling to Saudi Arabia will also be on call for next week’s WWE RAW show on May 27th if they are needed.
