NXT Takeover – Chicago: It Worked Before And It Works Again

Takeover: Chicago Date: May 20, 2017 Location: Allstate Arena, Chicago, Illinois Commentators: Nigel McGuinness, Tom Phillips, Percy Watson How did we not get here before?

Takeover: Chicago Preview

When I heard about “Takeover: Chicago” taking place only about six weeks after “Takeover: Orlando”, I wasn’t all that thrilled with the concept. These shows work best when they have time to be built up instead of rushing things together like this. Then again, the idea of Takeover in Chicago is too much to pass […]

Takeover: Orlando Preview

Last year, NXT held its first Takeover event during Wrestlemania weekend with the instant classic “Takeover: Dallas”.

Takeover – San Antonio: Another Broken Streak

Takeover: San Antonio Date: January 28, 2017 Location: Freeman Coliseum, San Antonio, Texas Commentators: Percy Watson, Tom Phillips, Corey Graves For the first time that I can remember, NXT actually has its work cut out to make one of these shows work. The card just isn’t all that strong this time around and it shows […]

NXT Takeover: San Antonio Preview

It’s that time again as NXT will be taking over another Saturday night before we get to one of the Big Four pay per views. Unfortunately this show hasn’t had the best build in the world and a lot of that is due to a combination of the talent being taken up to the main […]
