NXT Takeover being advertised for April 8 during WrestleMania weekend

An NXT Takeover set for Thursday, April 8 is being advertised for WrestleMania weekend.

WWE passed on having a Takeover last year when the pandemic edition of WrestleMania took place from the WWE Performance Center but it looks like the tradition of having an NXT Takeover added to the Mania weekend will return this year.

A Thursday Takeover would mean that the NXT go-home episode would air the night before on USA Network and if the rumors prove to be correct, they would be back on the air on Tuesday night, April 13, for their new slot on USA.

With WrestleMania being once again held over two nights, it means that Takeover cannot be held on Saturday night and it can’t air on Friday night either as there is Smackdown and the potential Hall of Fame ceremony as well.

WWE has not announced where the TV shows as part of that weekend will be happening. While WrestleMania will have limited number of fans, it could be that Raw and Smackdown will still be held at the ThunderDome in front of virtual fans only.
