Why WWE Might Run NXT Live Events During WrestleMania 31 Week, Bruno Documentary News
Mar 27, 2014 - by Marc Middleton
– The long-talked about Bruno Sammartino documentary may debut on Mother’s Day in Pittsburgh on the local CBS affiliate, since Bruno’s mother was such a big part of his story. This documentary was done independently, not by WWE. There is still nothing solid in regards to national or worldwide distribution for the film.
– There has been talk of WWE running some NXT live events in the San Jose area during WrestleMania 31 week in 2015 as a way to counter some of the independent wrestling shows that will be booked outside of Santa Clara county.
As noted, WWE has made a strong attempt at locking up venues with the cities of San Jose and Santa Clara, making it hard for indie groups to book buildings. Dragon Gate USA and Evolve were able to get venues for next year but one group that regularly runs WrestleMania week noted that the closest they’ve been able to get is an hour away.
