The final member of Team Shotzi was revealed as the babyface team earned the advantage heading into Sunday's women's WarGames match.
In the main event of last night's go-home edition of NXT, Shotzi Blackheart defeated Raquel Gonzalez in a ladder match for the women's WarGames entrance order advantage. It appeared that Gonzalez had the match won after both WarGames teams and Indi Hartwell got involved, but NXT Women's Champion Io Shirai appeared and stopped Gonzalez from retrieving the advantage briefcase. Shirai then sent Gonzalez out of the ring and hit a moonsault onto a pile on the outside.
With everyone else down, Blackheart climbed the ladder and got the briefcase. WWE then confirmed Shirai as the final member of Team Shotzi. It will be Blackheart, Ember Moon, Rhea Ripley & Shirai vs. Candice LeRae, Dakota Kai, Gonzalez & Toni Storm at TakeOver: WarGames this Sunday.
The men's WarGames match on Sunday will be Undisputed Era (Adam Cole, Kyle O'Reilly, Roderick Strong & Bobby Fish) vs. Team McAfee (Pat McAfee, Pete Dunne, Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch). McAfee cut a promo last night and promised that Team McAfee will end Undisputed Era.
A new match was also confirmed for TakeOver: WarGames on last night's NXT. Tommaso Ciampa will face off with Timothy Thatcher on Sunday. Leon Ruff vs. Johnny Gargano vs. Damian Priest for the NXT North American Championship and Dexter Lumis vs. Cameron Grimes in a strap match round out the card for Sunday's event.
