Credit:PWInsider WWE NXT will be graduating to its own tapings, combined with WWE developmental Florida Championship Wrestling starting on Thursday 5/17 at 7 PM. The tapings will be held at Full Sail University in Winter Park, FL (near Orlando) at the Full Sail Live gym. Tickets for the tapings will be free to FSU staff and students with ID as long as they reserve the tickets in advance. No word yet as to how the general public can attend. I am told one of the reasons the tapings, which will be branded as "WWE Superstar Showdown", are being moved are to make it easier to integrate WWE developmental talent into the mix for NXT. The hope is that the University feel will give the show a chance for better crowd reactions as well as help upgrade FCW TV to a "grander" look than the FCW Arena in Tampa can provide. The plan is to upgrade NXT and give it more attention as opposed to it being a secondary show on the Smackdown tapings. HHH is behind the moves and will be very involved with the tapings. He was said to be a big fan of the facility when he and other company executives, including Kevin Dunn and Stephanie McMahon scouted last year. This past December, WWE filmed several potential pilots at the facility and signed an exclusivity deal with the University to prevent any other wrestling-related events from being held there. Full Sail is an entertainment media university with state of the art production facilities. Triple H is advertised for the initial taping, which will also feature Sheamus vs. Alberto Del Rio and R-Truth & Kofi Kingston vs. Epico & Primo. Currently scheduled tapings: May 17, 2012 June 14, 2012 July 5, 2012 July 19, 2012 August 9, 2012 August 23, 2012 September 6, 2012 September 20, 2012

Source:PWInsider.com WWE's No Way Out pay-per-view will feature more than just steel cage matches. The idea behind the pay-per-view is to have matches that have no escape or are tough to escape from. Expect to see a Strap Match and a Lumberjack Match. The Strap Match will likely be between Big Show and Cody Rhodes.

Running The Ropes is back and the guys talk about John Cena's wife hustling his royalty with no respect (see what I did there?), which may cause Cena to to take some time off of the WWE to take care of it. But who would take over? Would it really be Lesnar? The guys also bring up the old debate on how spoilers affect professional wrestling. The ups, downs, and in-between are all covered, which really brought out some interesting points. Also, PAUL HEYMAN CAME BACK!!! Find out what the guys thought about his return and Heyman praising the Usos as well as his new role in the WWE. Ring Ka King moving out of India? Find out why this rumor has Brian confused during the news of the week! In the second hour, the guys talk about Punk suddenly having to take on Lord Tensai, which later included Daniel Bryan. Speaking of Daniel Bryan, find out Brian's reaction to WWE sharing the history of Punk and Bryan on WWE.com surprisingly! Then, does Cody Rhodes have what it takes to be the next big star in the WWE? Also, John Cena, the guy that said on TV that he was there every week on every show that he could and brought it live every time, brought it via satellite a la The Rock. The guys weight in on this, WWE's logic vs. Mav and Crelly's logic and so much more on the official podcast of the Unchained Wrestling Network, Running The Ropes!
