WWE’s NXT brand doesn’t have to pair their TakeOver specials with WWE pay-per-view events anymore. They are now shooting everything from a single location once again. NXT is reportedly planning for another Sunday TakeOver in October.
NXT TakeOver: XXX is slated to take place in Florida on August 22nd, but the company already reportedly has plans for their next outing.
According to Mike Johnson on PW Insider Elite audio, WWE is planning their next NXT TakeOver event for Sunday, October 4th. The location and name for this event was not revealed.
It wasn’t noted if this October TakeOver event will take place instead of one around Survivor Series in November. WWE is obviously making a lot of plans as they continue to shift things around.
WWE is reportedly holding SummerSlam in a different location other than Florida. This will not be the case for TakeOver XXX. WWE is still holding out hopes that the COVID-19 pandemic will level off enough for a return of live fans soon.
We’ll have to see if WWE can arrange an alternative location for their October TakeOver event, or they might be running another special out of Full Sail Arena.
