The second WWE NXT UK Takeover event, “Takeover: Cardiff” has been announced for 31 August 2019. The event will air live on the WWE Network at 8 PM GMT/3 PM EST.
The first NXT UK Takeover event took place earlier this year on January 12 from Blackpool, England. Pete Dunne went on to retain the WWE UK Championship against Joe Coffey while Toni Storm defeated Rhea Ripley to become the new NXT UK Women’s Champion.
The announcement for the event was made over social media during the NXT TakeOver: XXV in Bridgeport last night. Interestingly, Takeover: Cardiff will air just hours before AEW’s All Out show. Later in the Q&A with Cathy Kelly, Triple said the date of TakeOver: Cardiff had nothing to do with AEW. He said the date for “Takeover: Cardiff” was booked before WrestleMania 35. Later he reiterated the same thing during the conference call with media also.
WWE’s website is mentioning that an announcement will be coming soon with full details, including the venue and ticket information, on the event. You can check out the new promo below.
