Team Candice set for WWE NXT TakeOver: WarGames


Team Candice is set for NXT TakeOver: WarGames -- and the group includes an unexpected final member.

It was revealed on NXT tonight that Candice LeRae, Dakota Kai, Raquel Gonzalez & Toni Storm will be on Team Candice for the women's WarGames match against Team Shotzi at NXT TakeOver: WarGames on Sunday, December 6. Storm turned heel tonight by attacking Ember Moon.

LeRae defeated Moon on NXT tonight after Indi Hartwell, Kai, and Gonzalez got involved. Moon hit an Eclipse on Hartwell, but LeRae then won with a stomp. Storm came out after the match and acted like she was going to help Moon, but she then turned against Moon and threw her into the ring so LeRae, Kai, and Gonzalez could beat her down.

After LeRae announced her team members, Storm was interviewed and pointed out that she did say when she came to NXT that she was going to be a whole new Toni Storm.

Moon & Storm had teamed together and defeated Kai & Gonzalez on NXT last week. After that match, LeRae and Hartwell helped Kai and Gonzalez attack Moon and Storm.

Blackheart's team members for TakeOver have yet to be confirmed by WWE. Later on tonight's NXT, LeRae, Kai, Gonzalez, and Storm laid out NXT Women's Champion Io Shirai and attacked Rhea Ripley.

Blackheart will face Gonzalez on NXT next Wednesday to decide which team gets the WarGames advantage.

Here's the updated card for TakeOver: WarGames:

  • WarGames match: Undisputed Era (Adam Cole, Kyle O'Reilly, Roderick Strong & Bobby Fish) vs. Team McAfee (Pat McAfee, Pete Dunne, Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch)
  • WarGames match: Team Shotzi (Shotzi Blackheart and three partners to be announced) vs. Team Candice (Candice LeRae; Dakota Kai, Raquel Gonzalez & Toni Storm)
  • NXT North American Champion Leon Ruff defends his title against Johnny Gargano and Damian Priest in a triple threat match
  • Strap match: Dexter Lumis vs. Cameron Grimes
