Powell’s POV: The WWE.com story notes that the NXT Takeover: Chicago event be held on June 16, just two days before the WWE UK Championship Tournament event. Thus, there could be new champions crowned before the two-day event. WWE will be streaming all three events and the WWE Money in the Bank event on WWE Network in what should be a fun four-day stretch.
