Outstanding WWE NXT Miami show captured in photos from The U

WWE NXT delivered a tremendous show on Oct. 11 at the Watsco Center at the University of Miami in Coral Gables.

A sold-out event, NXT featured top superstars, established talent and roster up-and-comers. The action and excitement was captured by South Florida-based photographer Sadiel Speedy Ruiz.

Speedy has photographed WrestleManias, NXT TakeOvers, AEW Dynamites, FSCW, indie shows and more, including the Viking wedding of Erik of the WWE Tag Team Champion Viking Raiders and WWE Raw Superstar Sarah Logan.

NXT is 8 p.m. Wednesdays on USA Network live from Full Sail University in Winter Park.

Here is some of Speedy’s stellar work from the NXT Miami show. Enjoy.
