WWE officials want to air Sunday's Halftime Heat special live so there are no spoilers, and so it's another piece of original live content for the WWE Network, according to PWInsider. The entire match was peak late-'90s WWE. NXT is set to hold their next set of television tapings on Wednesday and Johnson concedes that it's possible they decide to tape the match in front of the Full Sail crowd. Furthermore, WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels will be on hand to call the action as part of the announce team.
WWE has tried this before, in 1999, when Mankind fought The Rock in an empty arena for the WWF World Heavyweight Championship.
In addition to the star-studded six-man tag, WWE will also be airing a marathon of some of NXT's most epic matches of all time starting at 2pm ET on Super Bowl Sunday.
The show will air on WWE Network, WWE.com, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.
The event coincides with the 20-year anniversary of WWE's inaugural Halftime Heat, which aired on January 31, 1999. But shortly afterwards they, Dream, Ricochet, Black and Cole all wound up in a brawl that spilled its way into the backstage area.
