NXT announces triple threat for TakeOver: Brooklyn 4 but don’t get too excited for it

This week’s episode of NXT television got around to giving us the main event of the upcoming TakeOver: Brooklyn 4 scheduled for Sat., Aug. 18, 2018, at the Barclays Center in New York:

We’ll keep you up to date on any official announcement from WWE.
