It is reported that WWE have made the decision to change the date for their NXT: Takeover New York event from Saturday April 6th to Friday April 5th.
This change means that WWE are reverting back to their old Wrestlemania weekend schedule which will see the Hall of Fame take place on Saturday instead.
Whether this is a strategic move to avoid a clash with the New Japan and Ring of Honor Madison Square Garden event which is scheduled for Saturday April 6th is unknown. However, it seems likely that WWE would wish to maximise their reach for NXT Takeover.
This is good news for wrestling fans in New York that weekend who were stuck trying to decide which show to see live.
WWE released a press release to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful, stating:
“WWE will be going back to its previous WrestleMania Week schedule with NXT TakeOver on Friday, April 5 and the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Saturday, April 6. We believe this better serves our fans.”
