The NXT superstars are taking to the road in October to perform live alongside some of the biggest names in metal at the Monster Energy Drink Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, California.
NXT have been making serious waves in the professional wrestling world with their hard-hitting and consistently exciting action every week at Full Sail University, and have only recently taken to the road to find huge success on a national basis too.
NXT will enjoy a prominent spot alongside the likes of Slipknot, Marilyn Manson, Deftones and many more bands over the two-day festival and it will be interesting to see how the action translates into such a setting, and fits into the bill.
Wrestling and heavy metal have been bedfellows in the past, and, as is obvious from his recently-shaved locks, NXT head honcho Triple H is a huge heavy metal fan himself.
Matches have yet to be announced but, if the recent visit to the 2015 Arnold Classic Expo is anything to go by, NXT will bring out all the stops to put on an excellent show.
Tickets for Aftershock go on sale on May 29th and the event takes place at Gibson Ranch, Sacramento on October 24th-25th.
