Mark your calendars. WWE has been around for a long time and they know how to do the big shows. They have built their company around the idea of making you want to see the special events and making the cards feel that much more important. The same idea has worked in NXT as well, and now we know when to expect the next major show from the promotion.

During this week’s edition of NXT, Takeover 36 was announced for Sunday, August 22 from the Capitol Wrestling Center in Orlando, Florida. This will be the day after Summerslam 2021, making it the first time that Takeover has aired the day after a major WWE pay per view. There have been no matches announced for the card as of yet. The most recent Takeover was Takeover: In Your House 2021, which took place on June 13, 2021.

This should work. Check out the announcement and the previous Summerslam weekend Takeovers:

Natalya & Tamina vs. Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler: Raw, July 19, 2021

FULL MATCH - Finn Bálor vs. Kevin Owens – NXT Title Ladder Match: NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn

FULL MATCH: Ricochet vs. Adam Cole – NXT North American Title Match: NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn 4

Opinion: Takeover is the kind of show that has earned its reputation. NXT has figured out a formula that works to near perfection and it is nice to see that the show is coming back. I’m curious to see how it is going to go after a major pay per view instead of setting the table, but it should certainly be interesting. Even the weakest Takeovers are great, so we should be in for another special one.

What do you expect from the show? How will the card look? Let us know in the comments below.
