NXT coaches and superstars will team with Special Olympians for a unique experience. They will join forces to pull a 50-ton jet at 9 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 1 at Orlando International Airport.
There will be one “NXT team” pull with all 10 NXT coaches and superstars attempting to set a timed record.
Fans and supporters are encouraged to donate to Team NXT’s page for Special Olympics Florida, as well as attend the event.
Never miss a local story.
Featuring NXT, police and firefighter teams among others, the competition is open to the public.
To prepare for the event, NXT coaches and superstars trained with their 10 Special Olympic athletes (with three to five Special Olympic officials) at the state-of-the-art WWE Performance Center in Orlando. WWE Strength & Conditioning Coach Matt Wichlinski led the training, and the Olympians enjoyed pizza afterward.
Team NXT includes Matt Bloom (6-7, 350); Baron Corbin (6-8, 280); Bull Dempsey (6-2, 300); Bill DeMott (6-2, 280); Sawyer Fulton (6-8, 285); Billy Gunn (6-3, 260); Tucker Knight (6-2, 285); Konnor (6-5, 215); Mike Rallis (6-2, 250); and Braun Stowman (6-8, 380).
NXT’s Rich Brennan and Corey Graves will be the announcers.
NXT also features Sasha Banks, Bayley, Alexa Bliss, Tyler Breeze, Charlotte, Adrian Neville, Mojo Rawley and Sami Zayn to name a few along with newer signees Finn Balor (Fergal Devitt), Hideo Itami (Kenta Kobayashi) and Kevin Steen.
The emergence of WWE divas and superstars like Bray Wyatt & the Wyatt Family (Luke Harper and Erick Rowan), Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Bo Dallas, Adam Rose, Xavier Woods, Rusev, Lana, Emma, Summer Rae and Paige is proving that the developmental program at the WWE Performance Center, branded NXT, is working.
