I have watched the NXT program since day 1 in 2012 and enjoy watching it grow more and more each year. Last year I went to NXT Takeover Fatal 4 Way in September 2014 to check out my first ever NXT show live. The experience of NXT down at Full Sail University is unbelievable and I recommend any wrestling fans experiencing it live. So when I found out NXT was coming to Pittsburgh I had to make sure I went. Unfortunately earlier that day the wrestling world lost a true pioneer in Dusty Rhodes, which almost every NXT performer showed some type of tribute to ‘the dream’ in their matches.
Even now I can’t tell you one match that wasn’t entertaining in some sort of way. NXT continues to becoming a stronger and stronger brand with the talent growing more and more each day. The match that stands out in my mind most is the Fatal 4 Way main event, the crowd blew the roof off the building when Samoa Joe, Finn Bálor and Kevin Owens came out to the ring. The match had an old school feel to it because they shut off all the entrance lights and just focused the lighting on the ring. Even if it wasn’t aired for the world to see, NXT Pittsburgh will be an event I will always remember.
