Saturday, January 28th, the night before the highly anticipated Royal Rumble, NXT TakeOver will be coming to San Antonio.

This is the first time an NXT TakeOver event will occur the night before a Royal Rumble. The closest we’ve seen to a TakeOver happening before an event this big was with NXT TakeOver Dallas, which took place the night before Wrestlemania 32. At this TakeOver, we saw the debut of Shinsuke Nakamura, who battled Sami Zayn in a true “Match-of-the-Year” candidate. Also, Finn Balor retained his NXT Championship against Samoa Joe in the main event.

The big question going into this TakeOver is whether or not it will receive higher praise than the PPV it precedes, just as many other TakeOvers in the past have done. Do you think that’s a possibility, or is the Royal Rumble too big of an event to be outdone?

Tickets for NXT TakeOver: San Antonio go on sale this Friday at 10 am CT.
