Well, that didn’t take long to confirm.
Yesterday (May 10), we heard NXT had informed talent the next TakeOver would take place on Sun., June 13, and that it would be use the same subtitle and theme as last year’s June event - In Your House.
Less than 24 hours later, Johnny Gargano confirmed the news while appearing on Barstool Sports’ ‘Rasslin podcast. And that’s not all... the Toddster is back!

The official logo makes it look like “In Your House” is the theme, so... sorry, Badd Blood fans.
Now we’ll wait to see what NXT puts on the card. At the moment, there are lots of directions Triple H & team can go. Mostly, that’s because we had one title match last week, when the Women’s Tag belts changed hands, and are getting two more tonight with Women’s champ Raquel González vs. Mercedes Martinez, and a two-out-of-three falls match between Kushida and Santos Escobar for the Cruiserweight championship.
Join us tonight in our live blog to see if the picture clears up on this week’s show, and let us know if you’re pumped for the return of TakeOver: In Your House - and Todd Pettengill - in the comments below.
