The WWE NXT Takeover In Your House theme is coming back for a second straight year.
This year’s NXT Takeover In Your House event is going to take place on Sunday, June 13. The report comes from Fightful Select, who noted that WWE has informed the wrestlers of the date and theme of the show. The event will take place from the Capitol Wrestling Center where NXT tapings take place and we can watch it on Peacock/WWE Network.
An official announcement from WWE hasn’t happened yet, but it will likely happen very soon.
Last year, WWE decided to bring back the In Your House concept as an NXT Takeover special that took place on June 7. Last year was 25 years since the first In Your House event, which was one reason to bring it back and because there were no fans, so the only way to watch was…in your house. The main event of that show (read my review here) saw Io Shirai defeat NXT Champion Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley in a triple threat match to win the NXT Women’s Title. The main photo I’m using on this post is a big spot from last year’s show when Shirai jumped off the “house” setup and landed on top of Flair and Ripley.
The WWE Money in the Bank pay-per-view is currently scheduled for Sunday, June 20 so that means there will be back-to-back Sundays with Peacock/WWE Network events.
TJR Thoughts: I like the In Your House concept. They did a nice job with the set design last year and will likely improve on that this year. I love the NXT brand.
Here’s hoping D-Generation X can log on better this year.
