The next WWE NXT Takeover event is called NXT Takeover WarGames and it takes place on Sunday, December 6 at the Capitol Wrestling Center. There were two matches that were made official during this week’s NXT broadcast (read my review here).
Leon Ruff will have to defend his NXT North American Title against former champion Johnny Gargano and Damian Priest, who was the champion that Gargano beat in controversial fashion. NXT doesn’t do triple threat matches at Takeover events that often, but it makes sense based on the story.
They also added a Strap Match between the mysterious Dexter Lumis and his rival Cameron Grimes. It’s a rivalry that has gone for a few months, so it makes sense that they are having a Takeover match.
We also found out some members of Candice LeRae’s heel team in the WarGames with Dakota Kai, Raquel Gonzalez and newly turned heel Toni Storm joining the LeRae team. We don’t know the official members of Shotzi Blackheart’s WarGames team, but based on storylines it would seem like Io Shirai, Rhea Ripley and Ember Moon could be a part of that match.
Here’s what the card looks like for now.
WarGames Match: Undisputed Era (Adam Cole, Kyle O’Reilly, Bobby Fish and Roderick Strong) vs. Pat McAfee, Pete Dunne, Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch
WarGames Match: Team Shotzi Blackheart vs. Team Candice LeRae (Candice LeRae, Dakota Kai, Raquel Gonzalez and Toni Storm)
NXT North American Championship: Leon Ruff (c) vs. Damian Priest vs. Johnny Gargano
Strap Match: Dexter Lumis vs. Cameron Grimes
There may be another match or two added. We should know more after next week’s NXT show.
