Mark your calendars. Things are starting to get back to normal in the wrestling world and that can make for some interesting changes. Possibly above everything else, it can give wrestling fans some things to look forward to, especially some bigger shows which they might have been missing in recent months. Now it seems that we might be in for an even bigger weekend than expected.

According to Fightful Select, WWE is planning to hold an NXT Takeover event on Sunday, August 21, the night after Summerslam. The event is planned for the Capitol Wrestling Center in Orlando, Florida, though there is a chance that it could be moved elsewhere. NXT is currently scheduled to hold another Takeover this weekend with Takeover: In Your House airing on Sunday.

Takeover has quite the reputation. Check out what can happen there:

5-Way TakeOver: In Your House Face-Off: WWE NXT, June 8, 2021

Top 25 TakeOver Moments: NXT Top 5 Special Edition, May 26, 2019

Opinion: There are two sides for something like this, as it is nice to have over two months between Takeovers, though a little more time would be nice as well. At the same time though, that is going to make for a rather hectic weekend of wrestling. In a way that can be a good thing, but WWE has always had an issue of presenting too much in too short of a time span. There is a chance it will work fine, but that is a lot in two days.

What do you think of the idea? How will the show go? Let us know in the comments below.
