WWE confirmed last week that NXT TakeOver: WarGames 2020 will go down on 6 December, with Pat McAfee leading his Kings of NXT group (Pete Dunne, Danny Burch, and Oney Lorcan) into the titular structure against The Undisputed Era's Adam Cole, Kyle O'Reilly, Bobby Fish, and Roderick Strong.
The vignette below suggests Shotzi Blackheart will captain a team against Candice LeRae in the women's match:-
A commercial that aired around last night's WWE Raw may have spoiled the lineups for LeRae and Blackheart's teams. It featured Indi Hartwell, Dakota Kai, and Raquel Gonzalez on Candice's side, with Ember Moon, Toni Storm, and Rhea Ripley joining Shotzi.
WWE is yet to officially confirm any of these names beyond LeRae and Blackheart, but it looks like the promotion is heading in this direction. We'll likely learn more on tomorrow's episode of NXT.
Ripley played a starring role in last year's inaugural women's WarGames match, dominating the competition as she led her side to victory against Shayna Baszler, Bianca Belair, Io Shirai, and Kay Lee Ray. Kai and LeRae were involved in that match too, with Dakota's assault on Tegan Nox ruling both of them out of the bout.
