NXT TakeOver: In Your House was a professional wrestling pay-per-view and WWE Network event produced by WWE for their NXT brand division. It took place on June 13, 2021 and was broadcast from the Capitol Wrestling Center, hosted at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. It was the 35th NXT TakeOver event, the 29th In Your House event, and the second under the TakeOver: In Your House chronology, a subseries of TakeOvers. It was also be the first In Your House to air on traditional pay-per-view since St. Valentine's Day Massacre: In Your House in February 1999.



TakeOver is a series of professional wrestling shows that began on May 29, 2014, as WWE's NXT brand held their second WWE Network exclusive live broadcast, billed as TakeOver—at that time until September 2019, NXT was the promotion's developmental territory. In subsequent months, the "TakeOver" moniker became the brand used by WWE for all of their NXT live WWE Network specials. While originally exclusive to the WWE Network, NXT TakeOver events also became available on traditional pay-per-view (PPV) beginning with TakeOver 31 in October 2020. The 2021 TakeOver: In Your House is scheduled for June 13, 2021. It will be the 35th NXT TakeOver event and the second in the TakeOver: In Your House chronology, a subseries of TakeOvers that carry the In Your House name.

In Your House was a series of monthly PPV shows that was held by the then-World Wrestling Federation (WWF, renamed to WWE in 2002) from May 1995 to February 1999. They aired when the promotion was not holding one of its then-five major PPVs (WrestleMania, King of the Ring, SummerSlam, Survivor Series, and Royal Rumble), and were sold at a lower cost. The branding was retired following February 1999's St. Valentine's Day Massacre: In Your House event, as the company moved to install permanent names for each of its monthly PPVs. In Your House was revived in 2020 as an NXT TakeOver event, thus the 2021 event will be the 29th event to carry the In Your House name. It will also be the first In Your House to air on traditional pay-per-view since the February 1999 event—the 2020 TakeOver: In Your House only aired on the WWE Network.

Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic[]

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic that began affecting the industry in mid-March 2020, WWE had to present the majority of its programming from a behind closed doors set. NXT's programming was initially held at NXT's home base of Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida. In October 2020, NXT's events were moved to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, featuring the "Capitol Wrestling Center" setup, an homage to the Capitol Wrestling Corporation, the predecessor to WWE. Like the WWE ThunderDome utilized for Raw and SmackDown's programming, LED boards were placed around the Performance Center so that fans could attend virtually, while additionally, friends and family members of the wrestlers were in attendance, along with a limited number of actual live fans, divided from each other by plexiglass walls.


The card included matches that resulted from scripted storylines, where wrestlers portrayed heroes, villains, or less distinguishable characters to build tension and culminate in a wrestling match or series of matches. Results are predetermined by WWE's writers on the NXT brand, while storylines are produced on their weekly television program, NXT.

A triple threat match between Kyle O'Reilly, Pete Dunne and Johnny Gargano was scheduled on the June 1 episode of NXT to determine who would face Karrion Kross for the NXT Championship at TakeOver: In Your House. The match ended in a no-contest after Adam Cole interfered and attacked all three competitors. Kross would confront Cole and made a request to NXT General Manager William Regal to defend the title against Cole, O'Reilly, Dunne and Gargano. Regal agreed to Kross' request and made the bout a fatal five-way match for the title at that event.

Following the conclusion of the women's tag team match between the team of Shotzi Blackheart and Ember Moon against the team of Dakota Kai and NXT Women's Champion Raquel González on the May 25 episode of NXT, González viciously assaulted Blackheart while Moon was forced to watch the ordeal after being subdued by Kai. The following week, Moon called out González and they both brawled in the ring. Later that same night, Moon announced that she would challenge González for the NXT Women's Championship at TakeOver: In Your House, which was made official.

On the May 25 episode of NXT, Mercedes Martinez defeated Zayda Ramier. Afterwards, the lights went out and turned back on with a red lighting, and Mei Ying of Tian Sha appeared on the LED screen. As things went back to normal, Martinez was given a black symbol on the back of her wrist. The following week, Xia Li was with Boa watching a video of her first round loss against Martinez in the inaugural Mae Young Classic four years ago, saying it was a disgrace to her family and she will hurt her at TakeOver. Later that night, Martinez said that she's aware of Li being different after facing her in the Mae Young Classic, and that she's not afraid of Li and would defeat her at TakeOver: In Your House.
