A few days out from NXT TakeOver: War Games on Sunday 6th December, two of the women involved in the War Games match will battle to give their team the advantage heading in to the match.

As long time fans will know, War Games matches see teams have new members enter the match alternately, giving one team a big advantage, having an extra person involved on three such occasions. You can read about this and other War Games information and history here.

Traditionally, the two teams will nominate a member each to do battle for the advantage ahead of the main match. Last week saw The Undisputed Era’s Kyle O’Reilly lose in a ladder match to Pete Dunne to give The Kings Of NXT the leg up in their match.

Tomorrow night, Shotzi Blackheart and Raquel Gonzalez will face off to give their team the first entry into the match. Blackheart’s team currently consists of Ember Moon and Rhea Ripley. Gonzalez will team with Toni Storm and Dakota Kai as well as team captain Candice LeRae.

Presumably we will also find out the final member of Team Shotzi tomorrow night.
