There was an injury angle on tonight’s WWE NXT “Takeover: WarGames 2019” Pre-show that saw Mia Yim suffer an injury after a backstage attack by a mystery attacker. Team Captain Rhea Ripley later talked Dakota Kai into replacing Yim.
Yim legitimately suffered a broken nose during her Ladder Match loss to Io Shirai last Wednesday, so that could be why she was pulled.
Below is the updated Takeover card for tonight:
Mens’ WarGames Match: The Undisputed ERA (Adam Cole (Captain), Roderick Strong, Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly) vs. Tommaso Ciampa (Captain), Keith Lee, Dominik Dijakovic, and TBA
Women’s WarGames Match: Rhea Ripley (Captain), Tegan Nox, Dakota Kai, and Candice LeRae vs. Shayna Baszler (Captain), Io Shirai, Bianca Belair, and Kay Lee Ray
Finn Balor vs. Matt Riddle
Pete Dunne vs. Damian Priest vs. Killian Dain
Winner faces NXT Champion Adam Cole at Survivor Series.
Isaiah “Swerve” Scott vs. Angel Garza
