Earlier this week, WWE announced that Japanese Wrestling legend, Jushin Thunder Liger, will be wrestling at the next NXT Takeover Special. This is historic news since this will be Liger’s first match in the WWE. It is unknown at this time who Liger will be facing, but just having him there will give the show a different flavor and be a nice treat for the fans that tune in. If I may speculate for a minute, this move might also be indicative of a talent exchange between WWE and NJPW. Time will tell if that comes to pass.
Also announced for the event is the Championship rematch between Kevin Owens and current NXT Champ, Finn Balor. This will be the third match in there series and this is coming off the heels of their stellar title match from “Beast in the East”.
NXT Takeover: Brooklyn will take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on August 22nd, the night before Summerslam.
