WWE announces NXT TakeOver for the night before WrestleMania 33

Shortly after announcing TakeOver: San Antonio for Royal Rumble weekend next month, NXT went ahead and confirmed TakeOver: Orlando for WrestleMania 33 week.

The WWE website expounds on Trips’ Tweet:

NXT TakeOver: Orlando takes place on Saturday, April 1, at the Amway Center, less than 24 hours before The Show of Shows. Fans in O-Town will get to see NXT’s most heated rivalries reach their boiling point on the biggest stage NXT has to offer.

Tickets for this historic WWE Network live broadcast are available starting this Friday, Dec. 16, at 10 a.m. ET. For complete ticket information, visit Don’t miss your chance to see one of the biggest events in NXT history live and in person this April during WrestleMania Week!

Amway Center will also host Raw on the Monday after Mania, and SmackDown the day after that, making this the first official “Big 4” of the new “Big 4” era.

This announcement also confirms the reports of TakeOver and the Hall of Fame ceremony swapping dates on Mania week. The induction festivities have always been the night before the Sunday pay-per-view (PPV), with NXT running Fridays. Information hasn’t been revealed yet about the 2017 HoF event, but it’s expected to occur on March 31.
