WWE announces NXT TakeOver 36 for August


WWE has confirmed the date for NXT's next TakeOver event.

During tonight's NXT episode, it was announced that NXT TakeOver 36 will take place on Sunday, August 22. That's the day after this year's SummerSlam pay-per-view.

With SummerSlam being held on a Saturday this year, this will be the first time that an NXT TakeOver show has taken place the day after a WWE PPV.

Further details about the TakeOver event weren't revealed during tonight's announcement, though NXT's Capitol Wrestling Center was mentioned during it. Dave Meltzer reported last month that the show is expected to take place at the Capitol Wrestling Center.

SummerSlam is being held at Las Vegas' Allegiant Stadium.

This will be NXT's first TakeOver event since June's TakeOver: In Your House.

WWE has yet to announced any matches for NXT TakeOver 36. There are four episodes of NXT left before TakeOver. Two of those will air on Syfy, with NXT shifting stations for the Tuesday, July 27 and Tuesday, August 3 episodes of the show. The change is due to a scheduling conflict with the Olympics airing on USA Network.
