NXT Announces Dallas Event on WM Weekend

WWE won’t be making the trip to Dallas, Texas all by itself next April — the wrestling organization will be bringing along its NXT counterparts, too.

The developmental branch of WWE will be hosting NXT TakeOver: Dallas on April 1, Triple H tweeted out early Saturday morning. Tickets for the event go on sale Dec. 19.

It will take place at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Center in Dallas. WrestleMania 32 takes place two days later on April 3 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

WWE made a similar move last year when they visited the city of Santa Clara for WrestleMania 31, bringing the NXT superstars along for the ride in an un-televised event. The annual wrestling event reportedly generated $139 million in revenue for the city.

This would mark the ninth TakeOver event in the series. A majority of their past TakeOver events have taken place at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida. The company would bring its first event outside of the Florida complex for TakeOver: Brooklyn in August — hosting the event at the Barclays Center just one day before WWE brought its SummerSlam pay-per-view to the same arena.

The developmental wrestling promotion currently has plans to host its first international TakeOver event when it heads to the SSE Arena in England for NXT TakeOver: London on Dec. 16. That event is headlined by Finn Balor and Samoa Joe, as the allies turned rivals compete for the NXT Championship. NXT Women’s Champion Bayley is also set to defend her title, facing off against Nia Jax that same night.
