WWE and Full Sail University sent out a press release yesterday stating they have expanded their partnership. The company previously announced that NXT would remain in Full Sail throughout 2019 and it now appears there are no plans to take the weekly show on the road beyond the end of the calendar year either.
“WWE (NYSE: WWE) and Full Sail University have expanded their partnership as NXT will now emanate weekly from Full Sail Live and air on Wednesday nights live on USA Network at 8/7c starting September 18,” the press release reads.
“With the latest announcement of NXT emanating from Full Sail Live each week and airing on the USA Network, we look forward to the expanded learning opportunities this will provide to our students,” said Full Sail University President, Garry Jones.

The partnership will continue to deliver real-world experience to students in all facets of broadcasting and television.”
