NXT changed the game on Wednesday nights ever since it’s arrival on WWE Network all those years ago, and is currently in a tussle with AEW Dynamite. NXT’s premier event, NXT Takeover, is one of the most anticipated events, as they have a history of delivering fantastic matches from time to time.

WWE announced NXT Takeover: Tampa, which is scheduled to take place on April 4, 2020, one night before WrestleMania 36 in the same city. This is the fifth year in a row that NXT gets to feature on the WrestleMania weekend program, and it returns to Saturday nights after being shifted to Friday in 2019.

The logo for the event resembles the pirate-themed WrestleMania 36. Triple H sent out a tweet with a list of live events leading up to Takeover: Tampa and officially confirmed the logo and date for the event.

The WrestleMania weekend will also feature the Hall of Fame ceremony, currently scheduled to take place on Thursday, April 2nd. WWE announced the induction of The Animal Batista along with the iconic New World Order (Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash and Sean Waltman) to be the first inductees into the 2020 Hall of Fame.

Hall of Fame ceremony will be followed by Friday Night SmackDown, with the two big shows on the weekend, followed by the highly-popular RAW after Mania on Monday.

NXT Takeover WarGames took place during Survivor Series weekend last month, but it won’t be returning for the Royal Rumble weekend in January. The next Takeover event is scheduled to take place in February from Portland, and it won’t be followed by any main-roster PPV.

All Elite Wrestling, NXT’s main rival in the Wednesday Night Wars, is yet to announce its next PPV. It was reported a few weeks ago that WWE is changing up the Takeover schedule to tackle AEW PPVs, which could be the reason behind NXT staying off the Royal Rumble weekend this year.
