WWE switches NXT TakeOver, HOF dates for WrestleMania 35 week


WWE has switched up a couple of dates on its schedule for WrestleMania week 2019.

The company issued a statement today confirming that NXT TakeOver: New York will now be held on Friday, April 5, 2019 and the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony will take place on Saturday, April 6, 2019: "WWE will be going back to its previous WrestleMania Week schedule with NXT TakeOver on Friday, April 5 and the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Saturday, April 6. We believe this better serves our fans.”

The change first became known when WWE sent out emails about it today to those who have purchased WrestleMania travel packages. Individual tickets for TakeOver and the Hall of Fame ceremony have yet to go on sale.

Both TakeOver: New York and the Hall of Fame ceremony will be held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The post-WrestleMania episodes of Raw and SmackDown will also take place at the Barclays Center in the days after MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey hosts WrestleMania 35 on Sunday, April 7, 2019.

The change means that the Hall of Fame ceremony (instead of TakeOver) will be going head-to-head with ROH and NJPW's G1 Supercard at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night.
