2/27 NXT Arrival Pre-Show: Bret Hart, Paul Heyman, and Kevin Nash appear on the panel promoting the NXT Arrival live special
Feb 27, 2014 - 06:30 PM


By Jason Powell

The following is live coverage of the WWE NXT Arrival pre-show that is being broadcast on WWE Network from Winter Park, Florida at Full Sail University. Refresh the page for the latest updates.

Renee Young hosted a panel that consisted of Bret Hart, Paul Heyman, and Kevin Nash... A video aired on the WWE Performance Center...

Powell's POV: Dear lord, don't attempt to rewind if you get a phone call. I made the mistake of stopping the video and trying to get it to play from the beginning and got a graphic that told me the video wasn't available in on demand form yet. I had to close out the app just to get back to the live show, so unfortunately I missed a few things.

Outside the building, Paul Heyman said the atmosphere is extreme. He spoke with a fan who asked him for a selfie photo. Heyman complied and raved about NXT being the future. He interviewed a female fan, who said she was there to see every match...

Young hyped the Paige vs. Emma match, and then a good video package aired to recap their history... Heyman spoke about how the winner of the NXT Women's Championship still has to face Charlotte (Flair) and other NXT female standouts. He said the winner's work is far from over...

Footage aired of Natalya and Emma talking in an empty ring. Natalya told her to enjoy the moment, then they hugged... Bret Hart spoke about the women's title match, then Tensai interviewed Paige, who said Emma isn't serious enough to be champion. She said the champion can't let up...

Young sat with the panel and announced that The Ascension would defend the NXT Tag Titles against mystery opponents. Nash said it will be a short night for whoever they put in the ring with The Ascension because "they are the package"...

Powell's POV: It's hard to tell whether Nash is up to speed on NXT or if he's just making it up as he goes along. I missed the early part of the show, but in this case his comments were pretty generic.

Bret Hart and Kevin Nash spoke about the first time they won championships. Footage was shown of their respective title wins. Nash said the night he won the WWF/WWE Championship is still the highlight of his career. Heyman said his legacy is forever tied to Brock Lesnar, and the night he won his first title was an emotional night for Lesnar, who is not an emotional man...

Footage aired of Alex Riley interviewing NXT Champion Bo Dallas about his title match against Adrian Neville. Dallas said he wanted all of his Bo-lievers to know it's okay to be scared. He said that when he steps through the curtain he feels his Bo-lievers and there won't be any fear. "Don't stop Bo-lieving," he concluded...

Young said Adrian Neville declined to be interviewed because he wanted to focus on his title match, but that he would be heard from at the end of NXT Arrival. Hart put over Neville as a great high flier with great potential. He said Bo seemed overconfident. Nash spoke about Shawn Michaels and his confidence and tied it into Bo's confidence. Nice touch. Heyman said the winner of the match will have him knocking on their door with a contract in hand...

NXT general manager JBL delivered a message from backstage. He said he was proud to bring to the world what they have known all along - there is something special about NXT. JBL said they would start the show with Cesaro vs. Sami Zayn... A video package focussed on Cesaro vs. Zayn...

Powell's POV: The preview was effective on multiple levels. They did a really good job of building up the talent on the show, the importance of the show, and, most importantly, the NXT brand. They really made this feel like a big event while laying things out nicely for viewers who might be watching for the first time. The panel was positioned in an area with fans behind them and that provided a cool atmosphere. Very well done.
