Team Shotzi Blackheart has won the advantage for the women’s WarGames match at Sunday’s NXT “Takeover: WarGames 2020” event.
Tonight’s NXT saw Shotzi earn the advantage by defeating Raquel Gonzalez in the Ladder Match main event.
The main event featured interference from both WarGames teams. This saw the reveal of the fourth and final member of Team Shotzi – NXT Women’s Champion Io Shirai. Shirai will join Shotzi, Ember Moon and Rhea Ripley for the big War Games battle against Team Candice LeRae – Gonzalez, Dakota Kai, Toni Storm, and LeRae.
In other news for Sunday’s Takeover event, Timothy Thatcher looks to take on Tommaso Ciampa.
Ciampa has had his eye on Thatcher for a few weeks now, for the way Thatcher bullies his students in his “Thatch-as-Thatch-Can” training sessions. Tonight’s show saw the two grapplers come to blows after Ciampa interrupted Thatcher’s latest training session. Thatcher declared that he has no problem with Ciampa and wants no trouble with him, but then attacked him. This led to Thatcher and one of his students double teaming Ciampa. Thatcher later told McKenzie Mitchell that Ciampa will learn about respect on Sunday.
