    NXT Takeover Special NXT TakeOver: War Games II - November 23, 2019 - Card & Discussion



    Men's War Games
    Tomasso Ciampa, Keith Lee, Dominki Dijakoviv, & ??? vs Undisputed Era




    Quote Originally Posted by WWE.com
    Tommaso Ciampa put his quest to reclaim the NXT Championship on hold because he’s going to war to try and destroy The Undisputed ERA.

    The Blackheart will lead Keith Lee, Dominik Dijakovic and a fourth partner yet to be named into WarGames against NXT Champion Adam Cole, NXT North American Champion Roderick Strong and NXT Tag Team Champions Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish at NXT TakeOver: WarGames on Saturday, Nov. 23.

    From the moment Ciampa returned to NXT following his recovery from neck surgery, he made it clear that he had his sights set on taking back Goldie, much to the chagrin of Cole. Riddle and Lee have both had their run-ins with The Undisputed ERA in recent weeks, from Matt Riddle’s battle with Cole for the NXT Title to Lee being ambushed by the four ruthless Superstars after a wild Triple Threat Match for Strong’s North American Title.

    But after a tag team match that pitted Riddle & Lee against O’Reilly & Fish, The Undisputed ERA sought to steamroll their rivals once again, until Ciampa arrived to stop it. With Cole and his crew retreating, Ciampa addressed the NXT Championship, telling Goldie that their reunion would have to wait because “Daddy’s going to war.”

    Dijakovic arrived to even the odds for Team Ciampa in a wild brawl with The Undisputed ERA on the Nov. 13 edition of NXT, following a match between Lee and Strong. Though Team Ciampa seemed weary of Dijakovic’s intentions, the big man made it clear that he’s ready for war, offering his hand in solidarity, even seemingly settling the score with Lee, his longtime rival.

    However, Team Ciampa is still looking for a fourth member. Riddle was initially on the team, but The Original Bro’s escalating issues with Finn Bálor led to the two squaring off in a one-on-one battle, leaving Ciampa’s squad searching for their final partner.

    Who will be the fourth member of Ciampa’s team? Will they all be able to get on the same page as The Undisputed ERA, who have fought in all of NXT’s WarGames battles to date? Find out at NXT TakeOver: WarGames, streaming live on the award-winning WWE Network Saturday, Nov. 23 at 7 ET/4 PT!
    Women's War Games
    Rhea Ripley, Tegan Nox, Candice LeRae, & Mia Yim vs Shanya Baszler, Io Shirai, Bianca Belair, & Kay Lee Ray




    Quote Originally Posted by WWE.com

    As first reported by CBS Sports, NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler and Rhea Ripley have been named team captains for this match, known for bringing out the ruthless side in every Superstar who steps foot inside its cage.

    On WWE’s The Bump, Ripley and Baszler revealed the majority of their teams. The Nightmare has chosen Tegan Nox and Candice LeRae to step inside the cage with her, while the NXT Women’s Champion selected Bianca Belair and Io Shirai. Ripley did not announce the fourth and final member of her team, so Baszler elected to hold back on revealing the final member of her side until Ripley does the same.

    Dakota Kai sought to prove that she was tough enough to be the fourth member of Ripley's team against Shayna Baszler, but came up short against The Submission Magician. When Baszler, Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke sought to punish Kai a little more after the bell, a brawl broke out between all of the WarGames participants so far. When Mia Yim arrived with a kendo stick to fight off Baszler's squad, Ripley found her fourth member, much to the disappointment of Kai.

    Baszler's fourth team member was revealed in shocking fashion. During a Ladder Match between Mia Yim and Io Shirai to determine which squad would have the advantage in WarGames, NXT UK Women's Champion Kay Lee Ray arrived, shoving Mia off a ladder and sending her viciously crashing through another ladder at ringside. Shirai went on to climb the ladder and win the match, earning Team Baszler the advantage in WarGames next Saturday.

    Who will emerge victorious from this historic battle inside the two rings completely surrounded by a steel cage? Find out during NXT TakeOver: WarGames, streaming live on WWE Network Saturday, Nov. 23 at 7 ET/4 PT!
    Matt Riddle vs Finn Balor



    Quote Originally Posted by WWE.com
    In his first match since returning to NXT last month, Finn Bálor will go one-on-one with Matt Riddle at NXT TakeOver: WarGames on Saturday, Nov. 23.

    The NXT Universe believed Bálor to be on a collision course with Johnny Gargano after Bálor brutally attacked Johnny Wrestling on the Oct. 23 edition of NXT, sending Gargano out of Full Sail University in an ambulance.

    However, a neck injury forced Gargano out of action. With that news, Bálor turned his attention to the rest of the NXT roster, mocking them and daring someone to step up and fight him. He got an answer sooner than he expected, as Matt Riddle arrived looking for payback after Bálor dropped him with a 1916 on the ramp just one week prior. The Original Bro launched a flurry of offense on Bálor, sending the first Universal Champion on a retreat out of the arena.

    But Bálor was seemingly just picking his spots. Later that night, amid a brawl between Riddle, Keith Lee, Tommaso Ciampa and The Undisputed ERA, Bálor ambushed The Original Bro, dropkicking him into the unforgiving steel ring steps, setting the stage for this huge battle.

    Will Bálor continue his path of destruction, or will Riddle put a stop to Bálor? Find out at NXT TakeOver: WarGames, streaming live Saturday, Nov. 23, at 7 ET/4 PT on the award-winning WWE Network!
    Pete Dunne vs Killian Dain vs Damien Preist



    Quote Originally Posted by WWE.com
    The bad blood between Pete Dunne, Killian Dain and Damian Priest will boil over when they square off in a Triple Threat Match at NXT TakeOver: WarGames. There’s also an incentive added to their battle: The winner will challenge Adam Cole for the NXT Championship just one night later at Survivor Series.

    This all started when Priest targeted The Bruiserweight during NXT’s live two-hour debut on USA Network. The Archer of Infamy brashly stated that he was looking to make a name for himself at Dunne’s expense. Priest emerged victorious from their first battle, employing a low blow to put The BruiserWeight down for the three count.

    But before that first matchup, Dunne quickly made an enemy when he came face to face with Dain, and then snapped The Beast of Belfast’s fingers. Dunne seemingly moved on from the incident, but Dain would not forget, as he bulldozed over The BruiserWeight’s close friend Tyler Bate, then told Bate to tell Dunne they had “unfinished business.”

    Dunne gave Priest a taste of his own medicine in their rematch, going below the belt to set Priest up for an armbar that secured the submission victory. But that would turn out to be just the end of one chapter of this hard-hitting rivalry. The Beast of Belfast arrived after the bell to pummel Dunne. When Priest tried to muscle his way in on the carnage, Dain crushed him into the steel ring steps.

    Officials and security could not contain the three rivals in a wild throwdown last week that saw The Archer of Infamy hurl a security guard at Dain and Dunne before taking them out with a thrilling dive. Who will emerge victorious from what is sure to be an all-out brawl with an NXT Championship Match at Survivor Series in hand?

    I'm not a big fan of them doing two wargames matches on the same show. Undisputed Era have so many of the titles that it becomes hard to fill out the rest of this card given the lack of stories/feuds on this brand, although I suppose Gargano Vs Finn could happen here. It feels wrong not to have Cole Vs Ciampa on this show.

    Can't work out who the 5th babyface for the NXT women will be.

    Toni Storm maybe?
    But I’d prefer it if they just kept Duke out of this match...

    Get rid of the mens War Games. The feuds fit much better in singles matches anyway whereas with the Women, things are interchangeable. It's overkill like HIAC.

    woo updates.

    NXT UK Women's Champion Kay Lee Ray has been added to Shanya Baszler's team for the women's WARGAMES match. Assuming Mia Yim's spine is where it's supposed to be, I imagine that's the teams rounded out.

    In other news, Matt Riddle has bowed out of the Men's WARGAMES match to take on Finn Balor 1v1. Way to leave the team hanging, Matt. While Dominik Dijakovic stepped up to take a spot on Team Ciampa, there's still one spot left for the faces to fill.

    Pretty uninspiring match, that.

    I'm looking forward to the War Games matches though. Riddle vs Balor should be fun as well.

    This match should be fire and a nice way to kick off the night on the pre show.

    Probably should've put it on the main show given its lack of depth/quality but it should be a fun match.

    Dont think they have the free time considering both war games matches will probably fill up ~2 hours.

    Cut the War Games match time. War Games doesn't need to be an hour each. But if we go off last year's run time of 47 minutes, it's very likely going to be the case.

    Looks like they are writing Yim out of the match.

    Gonna guess Toni replaces her over Kai

    Really feel like this match deserved to be the main event. And not just as a token gesture to let the women go on last. Much more interested in this War Games match over the men’s.

    Hopefully Io is in from the start!

    I feel it would be kind of hard to justify this going on last when you've got The Undisputed Era in the other match and they hold all the male titles in the company. Eh. Really I feel it's kind of trivial anyways, but still.

    Did Mia get hurt in the ladder match or what?

    I mean they were a bunch of rumours swirling around that she did hurt herself during the ladder match so she may have some sort of niggling injury from it.

    It’s quite possible that this was just the plan all along too.
