WWE NXT’s latest live special, TakeOver: Chicago, will come our way Saturday, May 20 at 8PM Eastern on WWE Network, so we’re here to help you get ready for it.
For the first time in a long time, we head into this event without everyone asking “what’s wrong with NXT?” Fresh match-ups and an influx of talent have made for some exciting Wednesday nights since WrestleMania weekend and TakeOver: Orlando.
The roster is now deep enough that major players like Drew McIntyre and hot acts like Aleister Black aren’t on the card, and the renaissance has taken hold to the point that things fans were complaining about just six weeks ago – too many rematches, an over-reliance on older, ex-TNA guys – are being brought up nearly as often.
Of course, none of those things has ever stopped WWE’s third brand from having a really good live show every few months. And tomorrow night’s entry into the TakeOver series looks poised to continue that legacy.
