NXT TakeOver: London was a major professional wrestling show in the NXT TakeOver series that took place on December 16, 2015, produced by WWE, showcasing it's NXT developmental brand, and streamed live on the WWE Network. The show was the first NXT TakeOver broadcast from outside the United States as the finale of the first ever NXT tour of England. Finn Bálor, Samoa Joe and Bayley were named as working the show.
The NXT TakeOver series of professional wrestling shows started on May 29, 2014 as the WWE developmental league WWE NXT held their second ever WWE Network exclusive live broadcast billed as NXT TakeOver. In subsequent months the "TakeOver" moniker became the brand used by NXT and WWE for all of their NXT live specials as they held NXT TakeOver: Fatal 4-Way, NXT TakeOver: R Evolution and NXT TakeOver: Rival prior to Unstoppable. NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn was the first TakeOver show held outside of Full Sail University. NXT TakeOver: London will be the seventh overall show held under the NXT TakeOver banner and the fifth held in 2015. NXT is scheduled to complete a seven show tour of Britain with stops in Newcastle. Glasgow, Sheffield, Blackpool, Nottingham, Cardiff and finally London for the NXT TakeOver show.
The NXT TakeOver featured professional wrestling matches involving different wrestlers from pre-existing scripted feuds and storylines that play out on the NXT television program prior to the TakeOver show itself. Wrestlers portray faces (those who portray the "good guys") or heels (the "bad guys") as they follow a series of events that built tension and culminated in a match or a series of matches.
