SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
WWE cameras were on-hand at an ACW independent show Saturday night in Florida.
WWE was filming content for their new “Breaking Ground” series on WWE Network that will focus on the Performance Center/NXT.
WWNLive promoter Sal Hamaoui announced to the crowd at the Cotee River Bike Fest that WWE cameras were on-hand. Also, NXT Women’s champion Bayley was in attendance. She sat in the crowd taking photos with fans.
PWTorch has learned that WWE was not just filming the live wrestling action presented to the audience, but also some storylines for the show.
ACW is an affiliate training facility for the WWNLive Family, which is partnering with WWE as a feeder system.
Triple H discussed the relationship with WWNLive in the latest NXT media conference call earlier in the week: “I think they are one of the sounder promotions. I support them. I support their shows. A lot of our talent have come through there through the years. Everyone speaks highly of their process and of Gabe. Do I support them? Do I see them as a feeder for us? If I had somebody who I did not have room for here at the Performance Center, would I send them to Gabe (Sapolsky)? Absolutely. I think they are a very important part of the business.”
