NXT's Valentine's Day TakeOver special now has its name.

WWE has announced that NXT's next TakeOver event will be NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day. The show is taking place on Sunday, February 14 and will air on the WWE Network starting at 7 p.m. Eastern time.

WWE used Vengeance as a pay-per-view name from 2001-2007. Vengeance then returned as a PPV for one year in 2011.

A Women's Championship match has already been confirmed for TakeOver: Vengeance Day, with NXT Women's Champion Io Shirai defending her title against Toni Storm and Mercedes Martinez in a triple threat match.

Pete Dunne challenging for Finn Balor's NXT Championship appears to be the direction for TakeOver: Vengeance Day, but that match has yet to be announced. The men's and women's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classics are also currently taking place. The quarterfinals of the men's Dusty Classic will conclude on NXT tonight. Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter are also facing Dakota Kai & Raquel Gonzalez in the first semifinal match in the women's Dusty Classic on tonight's show.

Vengeance Day will be the 33rd TakeOver event in NXT's history.
