    I don’t even watch NXT UK and am buzzing. A bloody Takeover in Dublin!

    Figure this will need its own thread long term. So Let’s Go!

    I was excited last night when I saw Takeover Dublin till I later saw it was NXT UK.

    Not so excited anymore.

    Interesting. Might just have to go and see this.

    NXT UK is well worth a watch if you dont, some quality talent in there
    and a Takeover of any kind coming here is huge!

    Devlin may headline?

    Although Walter title match would be incredible

    The UK Takeovers are pretty great, I've been to Cardiff live and really enjoyed it. Can't wait to go to this.

    However do not bother with the TV tapings that usually go along with it, made that mistake in Cardiff and spent nearly 5 hours there watching matches with people I'd never heard of.

    dont watch the weekly show but takeovers uk have delivered

    and i think we get a few regular NXTers with it being in in 3 arena

    No presale options yet on 3plus

    This is prob the closet we will ever get to a PPV

    Parents will bring kids along cause its WWE, some die hards like myself and some her will go and then possibly we will have the bandwagoners as it will be advertised a lot

    They might add a DX appearance (as Triple H and HBK are producers) or an angry Finn Balor


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,799 ✭✭✭✭DrumSteve


    Wonder will any of the OTT regulars be on this?

    NXT UK Takeover Dublin? But Dublin isn't in the UK...
    The Sinn Fein voters won't be happy about this.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,553 ✭✭✭Blue_Dabadee


    Looking forward to this since it won't be like a regular WWE house show that we normally get where every match is phoned in.

    exactly!
    Biggest WWE show to come here in I dont know how long
    with the 3arena set up they should be able to bring decent production levels too

    There is a LOT of people angry about a UK Takeover being done in Dublin, its pretty funny to watch.


  • Registered Users Posts: 14 rianmcn


    Surely Finn will be on the card? Imagine if they could get Becky onto it somehow.


  • Registered Users Posts: 775 ✭✭✭bot43


    Fúck Fúcking sake.

    Not only is April 26th my wifes birthday, but she is also due a few days after that so there is not even a slight chance I can go to this. Genuinley pissed off.


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,339 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Is it officially announced by Ticketmaster/promoters here yet ??. Aiken more than likely in charge

    Hopefully tickets on sale next week

    Nothing as of yet, I imagine we should hear this week



    Is this the first full show we've had in Ireland? i mean non house, network/Tv show?

    It will be the first televised WWF/WWE event ever from Ireland.

    Bar a few clips that show up in Documentaries

    One being a 2015 documentary on Finn Balor and the Rollins injury was shown on another one

    This is a big deal for Irish wrestling fans imo and shows how much respect the wrestling has for us

    This is the biggest show in this country since the RDS show in the summer of 2005.

    Still sore about that ha

    Remember I won a pair of tickets to this but found out to late and a 15 year old me wasant up to trailing around Dublin to pick them up as It was too late to deliver them. Ah well seen a lot of shows since then all great

    Hotel prices have gone up a bit for the 26th April. I have a room booked in the Mayson hotel for €125.10 for the night. Location cant get any better

    What do y’all think they do in terms of layout for the show? Just use the usual house show set, or something fancier? Presumably they will have to put more room round the ring for commentary tables and the likes.

    Could've gotten a room for a night in the Abbey Court on Bachelor's Walk for around €25.

    I like having a bar in the hotel ha

    Be interesting what layout they will use but NXT UK shows normally have that indie/house show style setups. Probably the sections in front of Block C/D/E will be pushed up to make room for the commentary booths etc


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,665 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    I know it's the brand and all but I would be surprised if none of the Irish guys don't point it out to them. Maybe have "Ireland" stamped over "UK". Sure they even have Killian Dain in NXT with a backstory of growing up in the troubles.

    I won't be going but good to see a PPV coming here. HHH mentioned on the post show Dublin fans are loud.


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,339 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Jordon Devlin, Tucker, Moustache Mountain among others have had matches at wwe live events here in recent times with average enough crowd interest. Possible they weren't known too well by the crowd and the matches were at a different tempo to the main roster ones

    This could be different as they would be known by a lot and the show would be at a similar tempo.

    There will be those ignorant people there who will be wondering when Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Becky, John cena etc be coming out. Parents bringing kids need to be aware of this


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,339 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Taking there time announcing it

    I wonder are they trying to organise TV tapings for the Monday 27th April ???

    Next tapings are in Coventry I think the 1st weekend in march ?


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,689 ✭✭✭sky88
