WWE NXT WrestleMania show sells out in under two hours

In a very limited sample, Triple H's plan to take NXT on the road looks like a success.

Tickets for the just announced last week WrestleMania weekend show in Northern California went on sale today at noon Eastern time.  And they were sold out of the approximately 4100 seats before 2PM.

So while several thousand lucky bastiches get ready to rock the San Jose University Events Center on March 27th, the rest of us will be looking to see where the Developmental brand heads next after a couple of successful dates in Ohio and what promises to be a great follow-up in Northern California.

WWE has a hold on dates in Philadelphia, but has reportedly not come to a final decision on whether or not to run NXT shows there on the May weekend that would lead into the main roster's pay-per-view (PPV) down I-95 in Maryland, where Payback will be held in Baltimore on May 17th.

The promotion has shown the ability to sell out small-to-midsize venues, first in Florida and now in other markets.  Depending on what the costs of putting on a NXT road show are, these sellouts could make a compelling case to travel more with names like Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn at the top of the bill.

What will that mean for the show's original mission statement of preparing acts for Raw and Smackdown?  Would touring revenue lead to more signings?  Would those be veterans like Rhyno, or indy stars like Jay Briscoe?

It's an exciting time to be a fan of NXT...even if you didn't land tickets to the San Jose show.
