Looking for an alternative to Maroon 5 during halftime this Sunday?  WWE has something for you thanks to their NXT brand.

During the halftime show, WWE will air “Halftime Heat” on their official Facebook, Twitter and YouTube accounts.  The special halftime event will also stream on WWE.com and on the WWE Network.

“Halftime Heat” will feature a six-man tag match pitting Alister Black, Velveteen Dream and Ricochet against NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa, NXT North American Champion Johnny Gargano and Adam Cole (BAY-BAY!)


WWE released this little gem poking fun of Maroon 5, who haven’t exactly been well-received as the halftime entertainment.

Why watch Maroon 5 when you can watch WWE Halftime Heat?

Aleister Black, Ricochet & Velveteen Dream will battle NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa, NXT North American Champion Johnny Gargano & Adam Cole in a Six-Man Tag Team Match on WWE Halftime Heat, streaming live on WWE Network, WWE.com, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.


The match, itself, stems from a scuffle that happened after NXT TakeOver: Phoenix this past Saturday (January 26.)

In other words:  If you have no interest in watching Maroon 5 and want to see the future of WWE, tune into “Halftime Heat.”  It might not have “Moves Like Jagger,” but Mick could never do this.
