HALFTIME HEAT UPDATE, TRIBUTE TO MARVEL CHARACTER AT TAKEOVER, KEITH LEE AND MORE NXT NEWS

By Mike Johnson on 2019-01-29 12:39:00

The current plan for Halftime Heat is to hold the six man tag team bout inside the WWE Performance Center and stream it live to the WWE Network.  One would expect they will bring in local fans to populate the building or at least have a bunch of local wrestlers there as extras to fill the venue.  There is always a chance they can tape the bout at the WWE NXT taping tomorrow, but internally, we hear the company wants to air the match live so there are zero spoilers and its original live content for the Network. 

Johnny Gargano's ring gear at Takeover: Phoenix was inspired by Marvel Comics' iconic Jean Gray aka Dark Phoenix.

Keith Lee has recorded new ring music where he performs his own theme.  It will debut with his next TV appearance.  Lee was in NYC a few weeks ago recording it with WWE music producers CF0$.

In regard to Shane Strickland, sources indicate he's still WWE NXT-bound.

There was talk over the weekend in Phoenix that Abyss might end up working in WWE developmental in Orlando or NXT UK but no final determination has been made.
