Rumor on WWE Increasing Number of Annual NXT Takeover Events


It’s possible that WWE increases how many NXT TakeOver events that the company presents each year.

There is said to be a real possibility that we will see a sixth NXT Takeover special in 2020, according to a new report from @Wrestlevotes, who wrote the following:

“A source states adding a 6th TakeOver event is a real possibility in 2020, all dependent on how the USA Network numbers look. The current TakeOver schedule of Jan, Mania weekend, June, Aug & Nov makes finding a slot for a 6th show a bit difficult.”

WWE will begin airing NXT on the USA Network starting September 18th. The show will be two hours that will fill in the 8 pm ET – 10 pm ET time slot on Wednesday nights as a way to counter-program AEW, which will air in the same time slot on TNT starting October 2nd.

This year’s schedule had events taking place in January, April, June, August, and November.
