WWE hosted five Ohio State football players at the company’s Performance Center on June 13. The meeting was made possible due to cooperation between OSU’s player development externship program and Vince McMahon’s company.
Justin Hilliard, Davon Hamilton, Shaun Wade, Nicholas Petit-Frere and Liam McCullough shadowed the NXT coaches. The players received a crash course in how Superstars train, as well as how they prepare for the ring. The tour also included a presentation lead by Triple H, Shawn Michaels and Stephanie McMahon.
The Performance Center is regarded by many as the most elite training facility in professional wrestling. NXT’s finest come through the PC, where they learn the WWE style, as well as what the company expects from them on the mic.
NXT continues to be perhaps the most popular brand in the business today. The Superstars of NXT are always on their game and they’re always ready to impress. That was especially true at TakeOVer XXV, on June 1 which saw Adam Cole win the NXT Championship from Johnny Gargano.
