“Having WWE NXT at Download is like seeing what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object – you just know sparks are gonna fly! Wrestling and rock music go hand in hand and if last year is anything to go by, this exclusive festival experience is only going to be bigger & better for round two! This is not to be missed.” -Download Festival Promoter, Dave Bradley.
Wrestling has always gone hand in hand with rock music, so it’s great to see the return of WWE NXT at Download this year. Current NXT Champion Bobby Roode, who made headlines with his NXT debut at last year’s Download Festival said:
“Download was my very first show in NXT. The combination of NXT Superstars and massive musical acts, entertaining tens of thousands of passionate fans makes Download a unique experience. Returning to Download as NXT Champion will make this an extra special moment for me as a performer.
Alongside headliners System Of A Down, Biffy Clyro and Aerosmith, fans can be expected to catch NXT Superstars Bobby Roode, Aleister Black, Tye Dillinger, Kassius Ohno, Eric Young, Alexander Wolfe, Killian Dain, Nikki Cross and many more as they bring the hard-hitting, innovative and action packed brand of NXT to the purpose built, full scale ring in the main festival arena.
