Earlier this week, WWE confirmed the switch of WWE NXT from WWE Network to USA Network, starting September 18. There will definitely be a lot of changes to the yellow brand following this decision, and it seems like the premier event of NXT, NXT Takeover will have more events starting 2020.

According to the latest report by Wrestlevotes, WWE is planning on adding one more Takeover event to their lineup beginning from next year. Currently, WWE does five events every year, one for each Big 4 main roster PPV (Wrestlemania, Royal Rumble, SummerSlam and Survivor Series), along with one event in June.

The report also states that WWE is currently finding it difficult to slot in a sixth show, but will probably find a proper weekend for the additional event. It also depends on how the show actually fares on the USA Network. NXT was broadcast on USA Network in December last year, and it received around 800K viewers, which is a decent turnout for that size of a show.

WWE in its press release stated that it is looking to monetize the NXT brand further. The investors were informed that WWE could even bump the number of shows from 4 to 12, in order to fully establish NXT as the third brand.

On a different note, NXT’s first two shows for USA Network i.e the Sep 18 and Sep 25 episodes, are reportedly sold out. Both the shows will be broadcast from the Full Sail University in Flordia, which has a capacity of around 400.

If WWE intends to continue the monetization of NXT, they would be eyeing live episodes from bigger arenas as compared to the tiny Full Sail. In comparison, AEW will be presenting from Washington DC, Boston and Philadelphia in their first three episodes, with all three having significant capacities. AEW sold out the tickets for these three shows quite quickly as well.
