Unlike NXT TakeOver: Stand and Deliver, NXT TakeOver: In Your House 2021 will be a one-night TakeOver. It will emanate from the Capitol Wrestling Center on June 13th. Not just that, but Todd Pettengill, a name familiar with the In Your House event series, will also join as the official host of the show.

Last year, Todd Pettengill kicked off NXT TakeOver: In Your House by running down the card. This year, he is the official host. So let’s see how and what he will do in that role. As of now, there are no matches announced for the show, but we’re sure we’ll have the major titles and a couple of personal feuds on the show.

The WWE revived the In Your House branding last year on the 25th anniversary of the first In Your House event. The Women’s Triple Threat between Charlotte Flair, Rhea Ripley, and Io Shirai for the NXT Women’s Championship served as the main event. The show also featured a cinematic backlot brawl between Adam Cole and Velveteen Dream for the NXT Championship.


There is still a month to go for rivalries and matches to shape up heading into the show. However, our early guess is Karrion Kross defends his NXT Championship against Finn Balor and Pete Dunne in a Triple Threat. Plus, Raquel Gonzalez takes on Franky Monet for the Women’s Title.

Let’s see how WWE NXT tops their performance from last year’s NXT TakeOver: In Your House. Do you think the 2021 show will exceed expectations? Let us know in the comments below!
