A second WarGames match, Men’s match, was confirmed for the WWE NXT Takeover: WarGames 2019 show with Tommaso Ciampa, Matt Riddle, and Keith Lee taking on the Undisputed ERA.
Last week at NXT, the first-ever Women’s WarGames match was announced. Rhea Ripley and NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler were announced as the team captains at the time. This week at WWE’s the Bump, more team members for the WarGames match were announced. Tegan Nox and Candice LeRae joined team Ripley while Io Shirai and Bianca Belair joined the team Baszler.
During last night’s NXT episode, Dakota Kai faced Shayna Baszler in a non-title match and wanted to impress Rhea Ripley to get the final place in her team. However, Kai came up short and a brawl followed between the two WarGames teams. Mia Yim, with a kendo stick, proved to be deciding factor to win that brawl for Team Ripley. Later, Ripley announced Mia Yim as the last member of her team. Dakota Kai was not happy with the decision and left the screen disgruntled.
Last week, Tommaso Ciampa closed the show by declaring that he is going for a war. It was clearly meant that a second WarGames match will take place this year and it was duly announced last night. The team of Tommaso Ciampa, Keith Lee, Matt Riddle, and a Mystery partner will be taking on all four members of the Undisputed ERA. This includes NXT Champion Adam Cole, NXT North American Champion Roderick Strong, NXT Tag Team Champions- Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish.
NXT Takeover: WarGames 2019 takes place on Saturday, November 23 from the Allstate Arena near Chicago, during WWE Survivor Series weekend. Below is the current match card for the show:
