WWE NXT TakeOver specials don’t have to take place in association with a WWE pay-per-view. TakeOver events have stood alone in the past, and this year Survivor Series will receive no NXT special to accompany the event.
According to PW Insider, WWE pulled TakeOver during Survivor Series weekend. Instead, they booked a new TakeOver special for December 6th. It is unknown what the December 6th TakeOver special will be called.
A TakeOver event in early December still gives NXT an event to build toward. The idea of TakeOver not taking place during Survivor Series weekend also opens up a greater possibility for NXT Superstars to be included in WWE’s yearly event where all brands face each other.
As we previously noted, NXT UK also got a date for their next TakeOver special. That brand will receive another TakeOver special on October 4th.
