Download festival has announced that WWE NXT will be returning to Donington for the duration of the festival! Between June 9-11, not only will some of the world’s hottest rock and metal acts be gracing the stages but WWE NXT’s starlets will also be showing their skills and athleticism on the hallowed turf!
Announced to feature are; Bobby Roode, Aleister Black, Tye Dilinger, Kassius Ohno, Eric Young, Alexander Wolfe, Killian Daine and Nikki Cross with more to be announced! We wonder if pop-punkers Junior‘s bassist/NXT wrestler Mark Andrews will be appearing in the ring as well as on the Dogtooth stage….
Last year’s NXT at Download was a real hit with festival goers and they hope to recreate the magic this year as festival promoter Dave Bradley says; “Having WWE NXT at Download is like seeing what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object – you just know sparks are gonna fly! Wrestling and rock music go hand in hand and if last year is anything to go by, this exclusive festival experience is only going to be bigger & better for round two! This is not to be missed.”
Current NXT champion Bobby Roode says ahead of his return to the Download NXT arena; “Download was my very first show in NXT. The combination of NXT Superstars and massive musical acts, entertaining tens of thousands of passionate fans makes Download a unique experience. Returning to Download as NXT Champion will make this an extra special moment for me as a performer.
