It was recently announced by the WWE that they are bringing back their old WWE Vengeance PPV name and logo for the next NXT TakeOver special scheduled to take place on Valentine’s Day on Sunday, February 14th. According to WWE, “TakeOver: Vengeance Day” will be the name used at NXT’s next TakeOver and it will air at 7PM ET on the WWE Network on Valentine’s Day from the Capitol Wrestling Center at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.
Matches announced so far for TakeOver include a Triple Threat Match for the NXT Women’s Title with Io Shirai defending against Toni Storm and Mercedes Martinez and the finals of the Men’s and the Women’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Tournaments.
The first WWE Vengeance PPV took place back in 2001, and then it was changed to “WWE Vengeance: Night of Champions” in 2007. It was then retired until it was brought back as just “WWE Vengeance” in 2011. This is the first time that the WWE will use the “Vengeance” name since then.
You can check out WWE’s full announcement below, along with a photo of the logo:
