With WWE set to hold the NXT Takeover: WarGames II during the upcoming Survivor Series weekend, an announcement regarding a WarGames Match was inevitable.
This announcement came during the latest NXT TV tapings where General Manager William Regal confirmed what appears to be the main event of the upcoming NXT special.
The GM announced that The War Raiders, WWE UK Champion Pete Dunne and NXT North American Champion Ricochet will team up for the upcoming show.
They will face Adam Cole, Bobby Fish and NXT Tag Team Champions Roderick Strong & Kyle O’Reilly collectively known as the Undisputed Era in a WarGames match at the upcoming PPV.
NXT reintroduced the WarGames concept to WWE programming last year when they announced the return of this two-caged bout after almost 17 years.
The match saw Sanity, the Undisputed Era, and the team of The Authors of Pain and Roderick Strong battling each other in the main event of the show.
This bout was won by the Undisputed Era after Adam Cole struck Eric Young of Sanity with a kendo stick and then performed a shining wizard for the pin.
With the company going with only two teams for this year’s WarGames match, it will be interesting to see if they are able to top last year’s main event. The episode featuring the announcement of this match is expected to air on October 31st or November 7th.
NXT Takeover: WarGames II will be held in the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Saturday, November 17 during WWE’s Survivor Series weekend
