NXT TakeOver Special In Brooklyn Confirmed For Night Before SummerSlam
Triple H has announced NXT will hold a live event special at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, New York on the night before SummerSlam.
The WWE chief confirmed the developmental brand will make its debut in the Big Apple On Twitter earlier this afternoon. Tickets for NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn go on sale Saturday, July 18.

With both SummerSlam and the following night’s Raw also booked to go down in the Barclay Center, that means WWE will occupy the same building for an unexpected three nights in a row.
The twenty-eighth instalment of the summer spectacular was originally due to be held at the IZOD Centre in New Jersey before the venue's closure was announced in January.
SummerSlam took up residency at the Staples Center in Los Angeles in 2009, remaining there until last year.
