NXT TakeOver: The End, also called NXT TakeOver: The End... of the Beginning was a professional wrestling show in the NXT TakeOver series that took place on June 8, 2016 and is the 339th episode of NXT. It was produced by WWE, showcasing its NXT subdivision, and streamed live on the WWE Network. It took place in the Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida.
The NXT TakeOver series of professional wrestling shows started on May 29, 2014, as the WWE developmental league 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, NXT TakeOver: Rival, and NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable prior to NXT TakeOver: Respect. NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn was the first TakeOver show held outside of Full Sail University. NXT TakeOver: London was the first TakeOver show held outside of the United States. NXT TakeOver is the tenth overall show held under the NXT TakeOver banner and the second held in 2016.
On April 21, at a house show in Lowell, Massachusetts, Samoa Joe defeated Finn Bálor to win the NXT Championship. On the May 11 episode of NXT, NXT General Manager William Regal scheduled a rematch at NXT TakeOver. On May 17 during a contract signing at WWE Performance Center, a stipulation was added and the match was made a Steel Cage match.
