The NXT performance talent that is serving as the crowd for the shows was called to the WWE Performance Center around 8:30am this morning. The reason for this is that WWE decided to film Backlash today rather than wait until later this week. After finishing the Backlash recording, the talent will be bussed to Full Sail for NXT TakeOver which is set to be live. There are reportedly no ‘cinematic matches’ planned for Backlash, and everything will be filmed in the ring today.
The talent was told that they are expected to be working until around midnight tonight. Every match will be live tonight except for Adam Cole & Velveteen Dream’s ‘Backlot Brawl’ that was filmed last week late at night outside.
