Next WWE NXT TakeOver Scheduled For SummerSlam Weekend

2 big shows in 2 days

WWE NXT has big plans for SummerSlam weekend. 

Andrew Zarian of the Mat Men Pro Wrestling podcast noted it had been proposed the next NXT TakeOver would take place on Sunday, August 22. Fightful Select then confirmed the date and added the event is scheduled to be held at the Capitol Wrestling Center in Orlando, Florida, as opposed to Allegiant Stadium.

The decision was made to hold the show at the CWC as it gives WWE flexibility should they decide to move the TakeOver show to another venue. 

Triple H was asked about the possibility of a SummerSlam weekend TakeOver and The Game stated it was "a work in progress" at the moment, saying: "So, it's a little bit of a work in progress as far as where that show lands for the SummerSlam weekend TakeOver. We're in a unique time coming out of the pandemic and getting back on the road and doing live events and SummerSlam going to Vegas in a stadium and hopefully, we'll have a full house, it should be awesome but it's a unique time, a lot of it is everyone is trying to feel things out."
