WWE possibly rescheduling NXT TakeOver due to Saudi Arabia event

NXT’s next TakeOver event was scheduled to take place on June 8th in San Jose. However, that might not be happening anymore due to WWE’s relationship with Saudi Arabia.

Dave Meltzer explained on Wrestling Observer Radio that he was told that WWE will most likely reschedule the NXT TakeOver event for June since they have another Saudi Arabia show slated for the day before.

“TakeOver is supposed to be June 8th, but since the Saudi show is June 7th, the San Jose TakeOver… it hasn’t been announced, but I was told today because I’ve been asking for weeks and no one’s said anything that it does not look like the San Jose TakeOver will take place on that day.”

“Now it still may be in San Jose like a week later, you know whatever it is. They’re doing tapings this Wednesday and Thursday they’re taping NXT and that will be all the stuff through the next TakeOver so they’re gonna have to know and make a decision so Wednesday or Thursday when they do TV they’ll have to announce it, but yeah I was told if they go to Saudi Arabia then they’re not gonna do it on the next day at least the way things are scheduled right now.”

WWE already had cancelled Backlash pay-per-view due to the Saudi Arabia event this year. Hopefully, WWE manages to reschedule the TakeOver event properly. So fans might just go to San Jose just for TakeOver without any main roster pay-per-view the following night.
