Kassius Ohno vs. Lars Sullivan set for NXT TakeOver: War Games


Rounding out the lineup for the show, Kassius Ohno vs. Lars Sullivan was confirmed for TakeOver: War Games on last night's episode of NXT TV.

Ohno vs. Sullivan was set up at the most recent NXT tapings but wasn't officially announced then. Ohno asked William Regal for the match in a backstage segment on the episode that aired this week, with Ohno saying he wanted to get back into the NXT Championship picture by defeating Sullivan -- who has been positioned as a dominant force.

This will be Ohno's second TakeOver match since returning to WWE in January. Sullivan has yet to appear on the main card of one of the specials.

The Toyota Center in Houston, Texas will host TakeOver: War Games on November 18th. As was previously noted, Johnny Gargano challenging for Pete Dunne's United Kingdom Championship will take place before the broadcast starts and should end up airing on TV. Here's the full card for the show:

  • The Undisputed Era (Adam Cole, Bobby Fish & Kyle O'Reilly) vs. SAnitY (Eric Young, Alexander Wolfe & Killian Dain) vs. The Authors of Pain & Roderick Strong in a War Games match
  • Kairi Sane vs. Peyton Royce vs. Ember Moon vs. Nikki Cross for the vacant NXT Women's Championship
  • NXT Champion Drew McIntyre defending against Andrade "Cien" Almas
  • Aleister Black vs. Velveteen Dream
  • Kassius Ohno vs. Lars Sullivan
