After the recap of NXT Takeover: Phoenix, the kickoff panel announced that due to the scuffle between Aleister Black, Adam Cole, Ricochet, the Velveteen Dream, Tommaso Ciampa, and Johhny Gargano, that they would resolve the issues in a six-man tag team match. The match will take place next week during halftime of the Super Bowl in a Halftime Heat special. The announcement can be viewed below.

S.A.M.’s Spiel: I am really surprised that WWE haven’t done another Halftime Heat since the Rock and Mankind’s empty arena match from 1999. This should be a fun match but I wonder how much time this will get considering how much of it depends on how long the Halftime Show is for next week’s Super Bowl.
