Poppy And Nita Strauss To Perform At WWE NXT “TakeOver: Stand & Deliver” Event

Poppy and Nita Strauss will be performing at the upcoming “NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver” event in Tampa, FL. Strauss is set to perform the U.S. national anthem on night one (April 7), while Poppy is set to perform a new song on night two (April 8).

Paul “Triple H” Levesque told Billboard the following about Poppy’s performance:

“[Poppy is] custom built for us and we immediately reached out. NXT, a two-hour weekly live show, caters to a younger demographic and we typically have up-and-coming talent that we’ve been able to expose them in a bigger way to the world outside of their genre. It’s a great platform for her and it’s great for us.”

Strauss also commented on her performance via Instagram:

“IT’S TRUE!!! I am incredibly excited to get on stage to kick off #Wrestlemania week this Wednesday with the National Anthem at #NXTTakeover Stand & Deliver 👊🏻 Time to get #NXTLOUD!!!! 🇺🇸 #WeAreNXT”

This news comes after it was recently revealed that New Years Day’s Ash Costello will be performing Rhea Ripley’s entrance theme at WrestleMania 37.

Poppy On Her Upcoming Album: “It Has A Completely Different Sonic Vibe”

It looks like Poppy is already almost done with the follow-up to her latest album “I Disagree.” The singer has a “couple of projects” in the works including a nearly completed record, which she says will have a “completely different sonic vibe.”

Poppy told Spin the following:

“I still intend on releasing what I was doing in March, but it morphed into something else. I actually have my hand in a couple of projects at the moment. But one of them is about 95 percent done, and I am itching to release that.”

“About a month ago in L.A., I got my touring band together, and we got to record a new album. It was a process I’d never experienced but knew I always wanted to do. It was very organic.”

“‘I Disagree’ was written over the span of about a year. It was done in the studio: live guitar and vocals, but everything else in the box. This whole experience and approach was completely new, and the producer is someone I really respect and have wanted to work with for a number of years. I can talk about that at a different point. But I was able to get my band together and learn the songs I wrote in a very confined space and time, about things that are very close to me. We tracked it all live in a room. It has a completely different sonic vibe. We’re doing the last touches on it now.”

She also added the following when asked if the pandemic inspired the new material:

“There’s no mention of quarantine or lockdown or any of those things in the songs. I think we all know where we’ve all been for the last nine months. I don’t need to beat people over the head about that — we all know what happened. [laughs] The songs are just very personal to me — they’re about a span of two years.”
