Powell’s POV: This is great news for fans who want to see the event, yet couldn’t make the trip to Florida. I’m surprised the announcement is just coming now, but better late than never. The bad news is that the show runs opposite the NXT Takeover special, but at least fans will have the ability to choose or to watch both if they watch one on delay.
