Backstage News & Notes on 5/14 NXT Episode

Backstage News & Notes on 5/14 NXT Episode – Here are some backstage notes following May 14st episode of WWE NXT, thanks to Fightful Select.

– Plans for the double taping changed throughout the day, with the rundown for the tapings not being finalized until around 6pm, with the taping beginning at 7pm.

– The reason for the double taping is due to production staff and agents making their way to Saudi Arabia next week for the King And Queen Of The Ring Premium Live Event. Several production staff in NXT not traveling will also be on call for the May 27th edition of Monday Night RAW if they are needed.

– Gallus were heavily discussed to head to the main roster in the WWE Draft, with officials being high on them. They are still expected by those we spoke to to be called up to the main roster in the coming months.

– We have confirmed PWInsider’s report that Erick Rowan was back at the WWE Performance Center recently. We were told Rowan was undergoing a physical and training ahead of his WWE return.

– No matches for Level Up were taped due to the double taping, with extra matches having been taped over the last month.

– The May 14th episode of NXT was internally titled “Rise Of The Young OG” while the May 21st taping was titled “Fighters Fight”.

– Je’Von Evans continues to be held in high esteem by NXT officials.

– Pete Dunne and Shawn Spears both produced matches during last night’s taping. Dunne would produce Dante Chen vs Lexis King.

– We had previously heard of an NXT Underground match being made official for NXT Battleground at the UFC Apex, and that match was made official during last night’s taping. You can check out the spoiler for that matchup below.

– Security informed fans entering the Performance Center that they were only to take still photos of the taping and were asked by Level Up announcer Blake Howard in between shows not to spoil the program for others.
