Why I’m not going to NXT

I am an NXT fan. I have been since the second day I had the Network, the first time I saw the show. I rarely miss NXT. When I do, I watch it the next day, or later that evening. So why am I not going to see them when they come to Louisville?

Let’s do the math.

Floor seats for NXT are $79. “Cheap” seats are $44. “Cheap” seats at the older Broadbent Arena are more expensive for NXT than they were at the Yum! Center for WWE.

NXT is the hot ticket in wrestling these days, and with good reason. But do you know what that $44 will buy me? I do.

Three tickets to IWA Mid-South.

Four tickets to Pro Wrestling Freedom in Indiana.

Five tickets to UWA Throwdown or KDW.

Seven tickets to OVW’s Wednesday TV tapings.

No, it’s not apples to apples, but every one of the promotions I mentioned offers a different spin on the same product you’ll find at NXT. And for the price of one NXT ticket, you can check out all of the above and find a favorite local promotion.

I love NXT and will continue to enjoy NXT, but I also know the stars of NXT came from. Support indy wrestling wherever and whenever you can.
