Christian and Cesaro have been added to the WWE NXT Takeover pre-show with Paul Heyman and Renee Young. The pre-show will feature interviews with Bret Hart and Ric Flair, among others.
WWE noted that Bret will indeed be at ringside with Natalya for her match against Charlotte, so it appears he worked out his previous scheduling that was preventing him from attending Takeover. Flair will be in Charlotte's corner.
There will also be a thirty minute Takeover Fallout post-show with Renee, Heyman, Cesaro and Christian.
