Poppy and Nita Strauss will be performing at the upcoming “NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver” event in Tampa, FL. Strauss is set to perform the U.S. national anthem on night one (April 7), while Poppy is set to perform a new song on night two (April 8).
Paul “Triple H” Levesque told Billboard the following about Poppy’s performance:
“[Poppy is] custom built for us and we immediately reached out. NXT, a two-hour weekly live show, caters to a younger demographic and we typically have up-and-coming talent that we’ve been able to expose them in a bigger way to the world outside of their genre. It’s a great platform for her and it’s great for us.”
Strauss also commented on her performance via Instagram:
“IT’S TRUE!!! I am incredibly excited to get on stage to kick off #Wrestlemania week this Wednesday with the National Anthem at #NXTTakeover Stand & Deliver 👊🏻 Time to get #NXTLOUD!!!! 🇺🇸 #WeAreNXT”
This news comes after it was recently revealed that New Years Day’s Ash Costello will be performing Rhea Ripley’s entrance theme at WrestleMania 37.
