Following a huge sell out sucessful show in Brooklyn, WWE have a huge event planned for the next NXT Takeover show. For the first time, the NXT brand will go across the pond to the United Kingdom for the first overseas tour of the ever growing new WWE brand. With shows across the UK; the final show will air on the WWE Network as a NXT Takeover special on December 16th.
With the WWE Network exclusive in Tokyo held back in July, there was good idea that WWE could air the Takeover event live from England; resulting in a 3pm EST start time. Historically, any shows taped in the UK (for Raw and Smackdown) are aired at the normal time in America, thus meaning spoilers getting released early. With the fact WWE own the Network and can control the schedule; it was announced that the Takeover: London special will air live as announced by WWE.com earlier today. Great news for fans who hates sound dubbed episodes of WWE.
