NXT was back out on the road for the first time in years with its latest Premium Live Event, the Vengeance Day show that went down last night (Sat., Feb. 4, 2023) at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. It was a critical success, with Wes Lee and Dijak tearing the house down in the opener and absolutely no let up all the way through the Bron Breakker successfully defending his NXT championship against Grayson Waller in the steel cage match main event.
