NXT TakeOver night one to have no commercial breaks on Peacock

Peacock's simulcast of NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver night one won't have commercial breaks.

On Friday's pre-TakeOver: Stand & Deliver media call, Paul "Triple H" Levesque was asked about the logistics of producing a two-night event that's airing on multiple platforms. Levesque said during his answer that there won't be commercial breaks on Peacock's feed for the live simulcast of TakeOver: Stand & Deliver night one. Night one of the event is taking place next Wednesday (April 7) and will be simulcast live on the USA Network and Peacock in the United States. Night two will be live on Peacock in the U.S. next Thursday (April 8). Outside of the U.S., both nights will be live on the WWE Network.

"In essence it's almost like two TakeOvers happening within two days of each other," Levesque said. "One being on USA -- again, with potential commercial breaks. And also simulcast at the same point in time on Peacock where there won't be those breaks. So you have to approach it differently,"

Levesque said the logistics with the night one simulcast is a process they're working through and it will likely be a mild work in progress up until the start of the show.

Both nights of TakeOver: Stand & Deliver will have a pre-show starting at 7 p.m. Eastern time. The pre-shows will air on Peacock in the U.S. and the WWE Network everywhere else, along with airing on WWE's social media platforms. The main cards will then start at 8 p.m. Eastern.
