Team Shotzi earns the advantage at WarGames as Io Shirai rounds out the team


The main event of this week’s NXT saw Shotzi Blackheart and Raquel Gonzalez tear down in a ladder match. The goal? To earn the advantage for the WarGames match this Sunday.

Much like the men last week, the team members of each team were perched up top and isolated from ringside. Indi Hartwell pledged her allegiance to Team Candice and delivered a ladder where they could make their way down to help Gonzalez. Rhea Ripley and Ember Moon followed to help Blackheart. Hartwell continued to try and help as she set up a ladder in the middle of the ring but that just opened up the door for NXT Women’s Champion Io Shirai.

Shirai made the leap to stop Gonzalez from making it to the top of the ladder to grab the briefcase. This led to the NXT Women’s Champion executing a moonsault that took out the entire WarGames field.

This opened the door for Blackheart to climb the ladder and secure the victory. Without saying a word, Shirai rounded out Team Shotzi as expected.

TakeOver: WarGames is this Sunday, Dec. 6, and will be Team Candice (Candice LeRae, Raquel Gonzalez, Dakota Kai, and Toni Storm) vs. Team Shotzi (Shotzi Blackheart, Ember Moon, Rhea Ripley, and Io Shirai). This will be the second year in a row that Kai, Ripley, Shirai, and LeRae have partaken in a WarGames match.
