WWE went back to a previous gimmick match that hadn’t been used in several years back at the NXT TakeOver: In Your House special.
NXT Champion Adam Cole successfully retained the title over the Velveteen Dream in a Backlot Brawl this past Sunday night in Winter Park, Florida at Full Sail University on the WWE Network.
According to a report by Wrestling Inc, Michael Hayes, Triple H and Jeremy Borash produced the match. If you recall, these are the same producers who were in charge of the highly praised Boneyard match at WrestleMania 36 between AJ Styles and The Undertaker.
It was noted that while there may have been other people that had a hand in it, they were the main people in between takes that made changes or suggestions.
Per the report, WWE had to take a break after Cole took the bump into the windshield. Thus, it was noticeable that the blood had already dried up as Cole had a cut on his arm.
The Backlot Brawl didn’t take as long to film as the Boneyard match, which took eight hours to film, while the set took a week to build.
Instead, Filming for the Backlot Brawl started after midnight due to weather and it only took three hours to complete.
