WWE holds the NXT TakeOver 36 event on Sunday, August 22, 2021. When this first event was first announced, many thought WWE would hold it in Las Vegas, Nevada as the SummerSlam pay-per-view event takes place on Saturday, August 21 2021 in Las Vegas, Nevada at Allegiant Stadium.
Last month, it was reported that WWE did talk about moving the show to Vegas at a bigger venue that way fans already attending SummerSlam could also go to TakeOver.
Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the answer regarding this possibility is no and with so little time left, those within NXT are under the impression that it’s the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida for the loaded show.
WWE does face the burden of key officials having to go to Las Vegas the week before TakeOver for the tryout camp when they should be finalizing the show, and then fly back.
WWE NXT UK Champion WALTER vs. Ilja Dragunov and NXT Champion Karrion Kross vs. Samoa Joe has been confirmed for the show.
