WWE SmackDown and WWE NXT will both be taped in the same venue, on the same night, in Canada this November. The special event will take place on November 22 at the Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa.

This is an unprecedented move for WWE. While NXT has had their television taped on the road in the past, typically on the same night as NXT TakeOver shows, they have never been on the road with a standard WWE television crew for a TV taping. The move makes sense, as WWE and NXT will both still be in Canada following a huge weekend that involves Survivor Series and TakeOver.

NXT TakeOver: Toronto takes place on Saturday, November 19 at the Air Canada Centre. The very next night, on November 20, WWE will hold Survivor Series in the same venue. This will be followed by WWE RAW, also in Toronto, on Monday night. SmackDown and NXT will now put an exclamation mark on the week with the aforementioned event on Tuesday, November 22 in Ottawa.

Tickets for the November 22 WWE and NXT show in Ottawa are still available via Ticketmaster.com.
