NXT Takeover Returning To Chicago On The Night Before Money In The Bank

Chicago will have a busy week for wrestling and MMA fans. 

On twitter today, Triple H announced NXT will be hosting one of their live network specials in Chicago, Illinois on June 16th. He also said fans could buy a "combo ticket" which will get them into NXT Takeover and WWE Money in the Bank on the following night.

The last time NXT held a Takeover event in Chicago, The Authors of Pain defended their championship in a ladder match, Asuka defended her championship in a triple threat match, and Pete Dunne defeated Tyler Bate to become WWE United Kingdom Champion. It was also the place Tommaso Ciampa turned on Johnny Gargano which has led to their current feud

As Fightful's own Sean Ross Sapp pointed out a month ago, NXT Takeover and WWE Money in the Bank have been scheduled in Chicago the weekend after UFC 225 will be in Chicago. 

Fightful will have live coverage and a recapping podcast for WWE Money in the Bank and NXT Takeover but also will have the same for UFC 225 as part of our cross-over coverage of mixed-martial-arts, boxing, and professional wrestling.
