Load up your calendars. WWE has undergone several changes this year with the Coronavirus causing so many things to be shaken up. One of the biggest has been the location of all of their television shows, which has meant a few changes to the calendar. Some of the shows have been taped in advance and others moved outright, the latter of which is taking place again.
Over the last six years, there have been very few series of wrestling shows on the level of NXT Takeover. The shows are regularly some of the best and most well produced wrestling shows in the world and they have managed to keep up their average for thirty full events to date. As luck would have it, they are going to get a chance to extend that streak and the show is taking place sooner than later.
WWE has announced that NXT Takeover will be returning on Sunday October 4. While no further information has been given, the show will likely be taking place at Full Sail University. There is also no subtitle announced for the show as of yet and no matches set for the event. This will be one of the fastest turnarounds since the previous event, with Takeover: XXX taking place only 43 days earlier.
This is what you might be seeing. Check out what NXT has been up to lately:
Opinion: I’m not liking these faster turnarounds so much as NXT works best when they have time to set things up. Now as luck would have it, NXT is also great at settings things up in advance and you can see a lot of where they are going to go with the card from here. That being said, as of the announcement, they only have three TV shows to set up a full card. I could go for more time than that, but if anyone can make it work, it’s NXT.
What are you expecting from the show? What should it be called? Let us know in the comments below.
