WWE NXT under Triple H would bring an event to a local community center in my current hometown about four times a year to get the new guys accustomed to a crowd. I don't really follow it much anymore, but I took my two daughters once and they had a blast.

There were like a few hundred in attendance tops. Finn Balor was the big name that night, but there were a bunch of others that you've seen now if you follow WWE. A couple of "legends" signing merch and a hilarious number of former wrestlers lurking on the side just kind of commiserating if you knew your 80's and 90's.

It's a long show with lots of breaks.
