After the huge success Triple H's "don't call it Developmental" brand NXT had with touring shows in Ohio and San Jose, California this Spring, fans in other parts of the country have been clamoring for their own visit from Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Charlotte, Sasha Banks and the whole gang.
Fans on the East Coast got their hopes up when rumors went around that NXT had placed holds on the old ECW Arena in Philadelphia for next month is conjunction with Payback, but another round of reports came out this week saying that WWE has released those dates once and for all.
The new rumors again point to WWE wanting to run NXT road shows in larger venues, which has concerned some (including this writer) and caused others to wonder what exactly the purpose of NXT is and if it can accomplish both sometimes conflicting goals of being a competitive brand and a feeder system for the main roster that competes weekly on Raw and Smackdown.
Well, we should know more next Wednesday, since WWE is teasing a big touring announcement for April 22nd.

So we'll have plenty to talk about when the new episode of NXT hits WWE Network next week. But why wait? What do you think Triple H has up his sleeve for his brand?
