When the WWE Network debuts in February, one of the big weekly television shows will be the NXT Wrestling program, the developmental system for the WWE. According to on Jan. 30, there will be some big time stars - both of the present and the past - in attendance at the event.

The names the WWE are advertising for the live NXT show include John Cena, Sheamus, WWE tag team champions The New Age Outlaws, and legends Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels.

That is some big time names to get people to tune in to what will be the first live nationally broadcast episode of NXT Wrestling. That will be the only live show, and the episodes following will be pre-taped and are supposed to air weekly on Thursday nights.

With the big stars, it is up to NXT to prove they are worth fans tuning in for each week, and they have booked three main event level matches for the big show.

The main event will be a Ladder Match for the NXT Championship as Bo Dallas will defend his title against "The Man That Gravity Forgot" Adrian Neville. Dallas is known to WWE fans and has taken on the role of the clueless heel, pandering to fans who hate him, while Neville is the former indie star Pac, a guy who can fly.

The second match sees WWE star Antonio Cesaro take on Sami Zayn in a Best of Three Falls match. Zayn is the former El Generico from Ring of honor.

Also on the card is the NXT Women's Championship as the dominating Paige will defend her title against Emma, the Diva who has been showing up at WWE events with her own signs.

The WWE NXT live show will air on Feb. 27 on the WWE Network.
