The first NXT Women’s War Games match has been set!
The match was announced by William Regal on last night’s NXT following Tegan Nox and Dakota Kai’s title shot against the Kabuki Warriors.
Following a losing effort, Shayna Baszler and crew hit the ring to taunt Team Kick. Tegan fought back though and a brawl ensued. This led to Rhea Ripley making the save, but Io Shirai cut her off. Candice LeRae and Bianca Belair joined the action at that point and chaos broke out.
William Regal then appeared as they were all being separated and said, “I’ve got a very simple solution for this … WAR GAMES!”
The exact teams were not finalized – so it’s unclear how many competitors will be in the match – but the segment ended with LeRae, Ripley, Nox and Kai staring down Baszler, Jessamyn Duke, Marina Shafir, Io Shirai and Bianca Belair. Baszler & Ripley were later named as Team Captains, with more info to come from CBS Sports.
NXT TakeOver: War Games is set to take place November 23.
