Mark’s reaction: NXT recently had their December Takeover event in London and it went off great. The crowd was excellent as usual and WWE was probably so happy with their experience that they decided to go back this fall and do another network special. I would have liked to see London get one of WWE’s monthly pay-per-views since it’s been a while, but I guess something is better than nothing. The London crowd always makes the best of it anyway, so I’m sure they’ll make it feel like a special event.
Are you looking forward to “WWE: Live in London”? Do you enjoy WWE’s live network specials, or do you think they’re just a slight step above the usual house show? Would you ever like to see WWE bring back an idea similar to Insurrextion, where they have one PPV a year across the pond? Leave any of your thoughts in the comment section below.
