So, uh, here’s some fun news we never expected to type words about. Per an announcement made on social media by Triple H, the #NXTLoud theme for the upcoming NXT TakeOver: Phoenix event on Royal Rumble weekend is ‘X’ by Poppy. That Poppy.
If you aren’t familiar with Poppy, she’s a YouTube personality who has been described as, “a combination of Andy Warhol’s pop accessibility, David Lynch’s creepiness, and Tim Burton’s zany comedic tone.” To clarify that a little, here’s her … accepting, I guess? NXT’s invitation.
If you haven’t heard ‘X,’ I guess you should just watch the following video and experience it for yourself.
