SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
WWE has announced a “strict no bag policy” for Friday night’s NXT TV tapings at Full Sail University in Florida.
WWE added that the policy will be “in effect for all future WWE events at FullSail Live.”
The new policy is part of WWE’s operations maturing at Full Sail, as well as increasing safety at tapings as NXT become more and more popular.
NXT correspondent Josh Parry noted that before NXT got really popular around mid-2015, there was virtually no security and the staff was really lax. There was minimal policing and people floated in and out of the building as they pleased.
Now, the events are run with a much tighter security detail and some of the regular fans who have attended since the beginning have been slow to adapt to changes.
The next step of a no bag policy is a logical next step to increase safety and peace of mind for attendees, especially in light of the recent events in Orlando.
