This Sunday we will see the 35th NXT Takeover Event take place. It’s NXT Takeover: In Your House II, and we’ve got a jam packed card. From a Fatal Five Way match for the NXT Championship, a winner takes all six man tag match for the NXT North American & Tag Team Championships, and the return to Ember Moon to the NXT Women’s Championship picture, it’ll be a show to remember. However, we won’t have to worry about it going on with a small crowd.
NXT Is Expanding The Crowd For Takeover
One of the things that make shows like NXT & AEW so interesting is the absolutely rabid fans that are in attendance. When the fans in attendance are excited about a match, it raises the enjoyment for everyone watching. It’s something that we’ve come to miss over the past year and a half, with a few exceptions like Wrestlemania 37 & AEW Double Or Nothing.
Now, we’re getting a proper crowd in the Capitol Wrestling Center for NXT Takeover. It’s been reported as the biggest crowd for NXT since before the pandemic. That alone is enough to get some fans excited for this show.
Time To Redesign The Capitol Wrestling Center?
For months now we’ve seen NXT air from what they’ve dubbed the Capitol Wrestling Center, an ode to the roots of WWE. This setup combined elements from Full Sail University with the WWE Thunderdome. However, with WWE moving out of the Thunderdome they might be ready to take the screens away from the Capitol Wrestling Center and welcome in more fans regularly.
There were some reports of WWE being uneasy allowing large amounts of fans into the WWE Performance Center where the Capitol Wrestling Center resides, but they seem to have changed their mind for this event. We will likely not see a massive amount of fans, but 300 fans in a small space like NXT currently provides could give an insane environment for this show.
Will having a big crowd help make NXT Takeover a better show? Let us know what you think in the comment section down below.
