Next NXT TakeOver event planned for August

Coming out of TakeOver: In Your House, the date and location for NXT's next TakeOver event look to be set.

Dave Meltzer stated on the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio that it appears that NXT's next TakeOver event will take place on Sunday, August 22. Meltzer added that the show is scheduled to be held at the Capitol Wrestling Center in Orlando, Florida.

August 22 is the day after this year's SummerSlam pay-per-view. SummerSlam is being held at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada.

When asked about the potential August 22 TakeOver date by Spectrum News 13's Jon Alba on his pre-TakeOver: In Your House media call last week, Paul "Triple H" Levesque said it was a little bit of a "work in progress" as far as where the SummerSlam weekend TakeOver would land. Levesque said it's a unique time with WWE getting back on the road and there's a little bit of an ebb and flow in terms of where things exactly will land.

Before NXT's next TakeOver, a special Great American Bash episode of NXT television will air live on Tuesday, July 6.
