It was announced recently that WWE’S NXT promotion will be performing a card at the Monster Energy AFTERSHOCK festival in Sacramento, October 24th and 25th. This will be the next NXT to California, for the first time since WrestleMania 31 weekend in San Jose.
For the first time ever, AFTERSHOCK will feature live, in-ring matches with NXT Superstars and Divas like Finn Bálor, NXT Women’s Champion Sasha Banks, NXT Tag Team Champions Blake & Murphy, Charlotte, Bayley, Baron Corbin and more, alongside a star-studded lineup of the biggest names in hard rock, alternative and metal. The festival lineup includes Slipknot, Faith No More, Deftones, Shinedown, Jane’s Addiction, Marilyn Manson, Coheed & Cambria, Stone Temple Pilots, Breaking Benjamin, Eagles of Death Metal and many more!
Me personally, I’m a big fan of NXT. I would love to see it get more attention. It definitely gives off a more intimate vibe over the rest of the WWE. It’s the closest thing to ECW and a good Indie promotion out there, in my opinion. I really hope one day, it makes it to Texas so I can see it firsthand. Otherwise, I’ll just have to catch it at Wrestlemania in Dallas next year.
