Due to Hurricane Ian, the WWE NXT LIVE events this Friday, September 30th in Tampa, FL & Saturday, October 1st in Dade City, Florida will be postponed. All tickets purchased for this Friday’s event in Tampa will be honored at the new event on Saturday, December 17th and all tickets purchased for this Saturday’s event in Dade City will be honored at the new event on Friday, November 11th.

Ian is currently projected to reach land on Wednesday evening. Models predict central Florida, including the Orlando and Tampa Bay areas, to be hard hit. Evacuations are already underway in the state.
