Women's WarGames advantage match announced for WWE NXT


For the second straight week, there will be a WarGames advantage match on NXT.

During a promo by Candice LeRae on NXT tonight, it was announced that Shotzi Blackheart and Raquel Gonzalez will face each other on NXT next Wednesday. The winner will earn their team the entrance order advantage in the women's WarGames match. LeRae didn't state whether Blackheart vs. Gonzalez will be a ladder match like tonight's Pete Dunne vs. Kyle O'Reilly match for the men's WarGames advantage. The winner of that match had to retrieve a briefcase that was hanging above the ring.

Team Shotzi (Blackheart and three partners to be announced) are facing Team Candice (LeRae, Dakota Kai, Gonzalez & Toni Storm) in a WarGames match at NXT TakeOver: WarGames on Sunday, December 6. LeRae's team members were revealed on NXT tonight, with Storm turning heel and attacking Ember Moon on the show.

Blackheart's partners for WarGames have yet to be confirmed by WWE, but Moon, NXT Women's Champion Io Shirai, and Rhea Ripley appear to be the most likely options. LeRae, Kai, Gonzalez, and Storm laid out Shirai and attacked Ripley tonight.

In the main event of tonight's NXT, Dunne defeated O'Reilly in a ladder match to give Team McAfee the entrance order advantage in the men's WarGames match at TakeOver. Undisputed Era (Adam Cole, O'Reilly, Roderick Strong & Bobby Fish) are facing Team McAfee (Pat McAfee, Dunne, Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch) at the event.
