NXT TAKEOVER HEADED TO TORONTO IN NOVEMBER BY JOSEPH CURRIER | @josephcurrier | SEP 2, 2016 7:29 AM
NXT TakeOver is headed to Canada.
WWE announced on Friday morning that NXT will present one of its regular TakeOver specials on Saturday, November 19th from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. The show will take place the night before WWE's Survivor Series pay-per-view in the same building.
After filling the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY for three straight nights over SummerSlam weekend, WWE will hope to do the same in Toronto as the Air Canada Centre is home to TakeOver, Survivor Series, and Raw in successive nights.
Survivor Series will be a cross-brand PPV featuring stars from both Raw and SmackDown.
Triple H cited overwhelming demand as the reason for bringing TakeOver to Toronto. The brand had previously announced a tour of Canada in September, but those three dates have been canceled with the addition of the November WWE Network special. A pre-sale code for TakeOver will be made available to those who purchased tickets to those events.
The Toronto show will be the first TakeOver held in Canada and the second to take place outside of the United States.
Tickets for the show go on sale Friday, September 23rd at 10 a.m. ET.
