Yim-Shirai ladder match set for NXT, Garza to challenge for Rush's title

Two matches have been confirmed for next week's episode of NXT.

Mia Yim and Io Shirai will face off in a ladder match on next week's show, with the winner earning the WarGames advantage for their team at TakeOver. Angel Garza will also challenge for Lio Rush's Cruiserweight Championship on NXT next Wednesday.

Yim will be on Team Ripley in the first-ever women's WarGames match, while Shirai will be on Team Baszler. The match will be Rhea Ripley, Tegan Nox, Candice LeRae & Yim vs. Shayna Baszler, Bianca Belair, Shirai, and a partner.

Yim was announced as the final member of Team Ripley after coming out with a kendo stick and making theĀ save for Ripley, Nox, LeRae, and Dakota Kai during a brawl on tonight's NXT. In a backstage segment later in the show, Kai was disappointed when she wasn't chosen to be the final member of Team Ripley.

The WarGames match at TakeOver will begin with a member of each team facing off. The advantage will decide which teamĀ gets to have their next member enter first.

TakeOver: WarGames is being held at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois on Saturday, November 23.

Garza defeated Tony Nese in a Cruiserweight title number one contender's match tonight. Rush came out to the stage and offered Garza a handshake after, but he slapped Rush instead.
