NXT – November 30, 2016: In The Big House

NXT Date: November 30, 2016 Location: Canadian Tire Centre, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada Commentators: Tom Phillips, Corey Graves Now this should be interesting as this show was taped on the same night as last week’s Smackdown, meaning they’re in a big arena instead of the tiny Full Sail.

Picked Up Post-Wrestlemania Raw/Smackdown Tickets

They’re doing a combo deal next year so I could get tickets for both shows in one shot.  Also, Orlando has gone WAY better than Dallas so far as I paid 150 for a nosebleed seat at Wrestlemania XXXII and now I’ve got upper deck for XXXIII, Raw and Smackdown for 193.  Indy shows/Axxess tickets […]
