Yeah, I can't see this show drawing at all. Its particularly bizzare they decided to use AAC as the location instead of much smaller intimate venues which would be more ideal for this one, all things considered. Unless they bring in tons of main roster talent (which may happen since there will only be so many spots on the Mania card) this isn't going to do well.

Based on Vengeance Day, the potential lineup for the show (unless they do these matches before S&D on regular TV) appears to be:

Ziggler vs Bron possibly, or a three way w/ Ciampa
Creed Bros vs Imperium
Solo Sikoa vs Walter
Women's Dusty Cup winner (I'll just take a swing that its Cora Jade & Raquel Gonzales) vs Toxic Attraction
Mandy Rose vs ????

I think there's enough hardcore WWE fans traveling to Dallas-Fort Worth that they'll probably be able to draw at least 5-10k to the AAC and have it not look totally embarassing. Also there's fact that they haven't had a live NXT show in two+ years. They really should have hedged their bets though and guaranteed an at or at least near capacity crowd and ran the convention center where they ran the first TakeOver: Dallas (which has a capacity of 9,294 according to Wikipedia).

I don't think it'll be as much of a disaster attendance wise as the G1 Kickoff at the AAC but I'd be less surprised at a turnout like that than a sellout!

I think the key also will be to be mindful on the ticket prices for this event (especially if they intentionally dont load it up with "outside" (main roster) talent. Even to get a respectable turnout, you gotta offer reasonable prices to get in for this one.

Them cakes can't be hidden, but the vinyl bondage suit and the torn fishnet body stockings aren't very flattering.

Triple H was back at the WWE PC this week and NXT had its highest rating in eight months*


* I wonder how much of that was due to "Wait. Vince McMahon isn't going to show up on this show too, is he?"
