The first match for the upcoming WWE NXT TakeOver: Chicago II event has been announced.
This event is approaching fast and a lot has changed since the last Takeover event, which was in New Orleans as part of WrestleMania 34 weekend that was headlined by Johnny Gargano vs. Tommaso Ciampa. This event also featured a change of the guard at the top of the developmental brand, which was Aleister Black beating Andrade “Cien” Almas for the NXT Title.
A lot of new faces have also shown up in the brand while some have left as they were called up to the main roster to compete on both Monday Night RAW and SmackDown Live brands.
The sports entertainment company is gearing up for their next Takeover special, which will be part of Money in the Bank weekend come next month.
On Wednesday, May 23, 2018, the WWE announced that Roderick Strong & Kyle O’Reilly would defend their NXT Tag Team Titles against Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch at the upcoming NXT TakeOver: Chicago event that takes place on Saturday, June 16, 2018 in Chicago, Illinois at the Allstate Arena and will air on the WWE Network.
The promotion will be announcing more matches for this card in the coming weeks.
