Quote On Monday, WWE COO Triple H took to social media to announce the next NXT TakeOver live special on the WWE Network.

Following a successful NXT TakeOver: Orlando special during WrestleMania 33 weekend this past Saturday night at Amway Center, "The Game" revealed that the follow-up TakeOver special will be held in "The Windy City."

NXT TakeOver: Chicago takes place on the eve of the SmackDown Live exclusive pay-per-view, WWE Backlash, live via the WWE Network from Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois, located just outside of Chicago, on Saturday, May 20th.

Tickets for the NXT TakeOver: Chicago special officially go on sale starting next Saturday, April 8th, via Ticketmaster.com.

I'm surprised they are milking the whole Takeover thing with another taking place as early as next month.

I feel E are going to ruin them by making them too often so they mean less.

They should just be four a year on the weekend of the big four events and that's it.

The roster is expanding, however I do agree, too many of them will spoil the way NXT works.

Current card is:

Bobby Roode vs Hideo Itami for the NXT Championship.
Asuka vs Ember Moon vs Nikki vs Ruby Riot for the NXT Womens Championship

Not sure if AOP vs DIY or AOP vs Heavy Machinery has been booked or official yet but yeah one of those will go down too.

There are reports that are unconfirmed at this time, but it seems the women's title match will become a triple threat since the word is they don't believe Ember Moon will be medically cleared before then.

Last year they did one in early June, this year it's late May. They could probably get by pretty easily doing 6 a year, once every 2 months.

It was just announced that the UK championship will be defended at Takeover Chicago. Tonight's house show will have Progress champion Pete Dunn take on Trent Seven for the #1 contenders spot.

Interesting to see that Asuka is not in the picture but Kairi Hojo is.

Oh, you're right. She does look a lot more like Ho than Hojo.
