NXT's ‘TakeOver: In Your House’ Is a Homecoming for On-Air Legend Todd Pettengill

Back in March of ’96, Todd Pettengill was struck with an idea. What if he brought some of his world into the WWE realm?. Then known as the World Wrestling Federation, Pettengill was an on-air personality for the company, one that brought energy and passion—and goofiness and fun—to the product. His forte wasn’t necessarily pro wrestling, but rather entertainment as a whole. As a disc jockey since the age of 13 (since he was too young to be paid, the radio station rewarded him with records as a token of their appreciation for his services), Pettengill knew how to capture—and then seize—an audience’s attention.

The Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling Podcast with Todd Pettengill. Todd Pettengill does not know what exactly he’ll be doing at NXT Takeover In Your House: Yeah, I have no idea. I absolutely have no idea what I’m doing. I know there’s a press conference that I’m a part of and I’m hosting the event. What that means? I don’t know. I guess they’ll tell me when I get there. That’s why I’m trying to prepare as much as I can, know as much as I can going in because you know, I think they’re sort of finding a place for me for this so whatever that role is, I’m happy to fill it.
