Sports Illustrated has an article with Triple H talking about how WWE decided to remodel a television set inside of the Performance Center to be used for NXT shows starting with NXT TakeOver 31.
The set will be called Capitol Wrestling Center, a tribute to Capitol Wrestling Corporation that was founded by Jess McMahon in 1953, which later turned into WWWF and now WWE.
“It’s a historic callback to where this all began,” said Levesque. “We gutted the Performance Center and it’s now rebuilt, so it feels like we’re going back to the beginning. To me, it feels like we’re going back to 1953. Just like then, we’re doing something different and new, taking the business to a whole new level.
“The Capitol Wrestling Center captures the feel and the vibe of NXT. We will have all the bells and whistles of the ThunderDome, but we’ll keep that NXT feel. It’s edgier, darker and raw—you’re walking into the ultimate heavy metal soundstage.”
There will be video walls surrounding the ring with virtual fans in addition to a live crowd of around 100 people in attendance.
