NXT TakeOver: Toronto is an upcoming professional wrestling show in the NXT TakeOver series that will take place on November 19, 2016, at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario. The event will be produced by WWE, featuring its NXT brand, and streamed live on the WWE Network.


The NXT TakeOver series of professional wrestling shows started on May 29, 2014, as the WWE developmental league NXT held their second 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: Toronto will be the twelfth overall show held under the NXT TakeOver banner, the fourth held in 2016, and the second held outside of the United States.
