When it was first announced Shawn Michaels would be returning to the ring in order to referee a match between Adam Cole and Drew McIntyre for the former Chosen One’s NXT Title a lot of people were wondering why this choice was made. After all, it’s not like the San Antonio house show will be broadcast on the WWE Network.
So, why is NXT pulling out all of the stops for the upcoming NXT house show in San Antonio? Other than San Antonio being Michaels’ hometown, there is another very good reason why NXT is trying especially hard to get people to buy tickets to their event because there will be another high-profile wrestling show going on across town.

Ring Of Honor is holding a mini-tour in Texas on November 17th and 18th. They plan to roll into Dallas on November 18th, but they’ll be in San Antonio on the same night as NXT’s house show.
The Young Bucks are promoting this San Antonio show as “Bullet Club Invades San Antonio” which really adds another level of intrigue to the situation. ROH’s latest Global Wars tour brought rave reviews, larger than norm ticket sales and plenty of unexpected moments. Therefore we can only imagine what The Bullet Club might have on the drawing board to execute the next time they’re so close to a WWE event. After all, the last time they “invaded” Raw it made plenty of headlines and rocked the pro wrestling world.
