Thanks to their “Big 4” pay-per-view (PPV) plan, where WWE now puts on four straight nights of shows in the city where Royal Rumble, WrestleMania, SummerSlam and Survivor Series are held, we already knew NXT would be returning to Barclays Center in Brooklyn for the third straight year this August.
Since SummerSlam will be there on Aug. 20 (and plans call for Raw and SmackDown to take place in the same venue on the 21st and 22nd), it was clear the “third brand” would kick off the set with their latest WWE Network event on Saturday, Aug. 19.
Now, that’s been confirmed by Triple H, along with a logo for TakeOver: Brooklyn III and some ticket information...
Get ready to try and grab tickets for what should be a hot start to a big weekend of action - the Friday, June 9 sale will be happening here.
Then you can wonder if they’ll try adding a goofy tagline to the show like last year’s “Back II”... and start fantasy booking the card.
