WWE NXT 2.0 special event tentatively scheduled for December


NXT's first TakeOver-level event since its NXT 2.0 rebranding looks to be set for next month.

Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics first reported that a special NXT event is tentatively scheduled for Sunday, December 5. Whether or not the events will continue to be called NXT TakeOver isn't known.

"Tentative date for the first NXT 2.0 Takeover is Sunday, December 5, according to multiple sources," Thurston tweeted. "Have asked but couldn’t confirm if 'Takeover' will continue to be the brand name."

NXT's final TakeOver event before the rebranding was this August's NXT TakeOver 36. NXT Halloween Havoc took place last Tuesday, but that was a special episode of TV and not a Peacock/WWE Network event.

Halloween Havoc was headlined by Tommaso Ciampa retaining his NXT Championship against Bron Breakker. The show also featured three title changes, with Mandy Rose winning the NXT Women's Championship, Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne winning the NXT Women's Tag Team titles, and Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner winning the NXT Tag Team titles.
