Riju Dasgupta, a Sportskeeda journalist, has announced that WWE NXT India would begin with a tournament with Indian talent at the company’s Performance Center in Orlando. The reason for this tournament has not been revealed, but it could have to do with the creation of a championship for the brand. The names of the participants of this tournament have not been revealed, but Sportskeeda has been able to know that recognized faces such as Jinder Mahal or The Singh Brothers would be on the list, in addition to others like Indus Sher (the one who leaked the coronation of Keith Lee as champion of NXT) and some of the talents hired in the last tests carried out in Bombay.

So much so that this plan would be the tip of another of the great plans: the creation of NXT Asia. According to the exclusive portal, the company intends to open a Performance Center in the country in 2022 with talents from places such as Japan, China, Singapore and India itself if the coronavirus situation normalizes.
