The NXT women's division will make another breakthrough as they will be featured in the first-ever Women's WarGames match at next month's NXT TakeOver special.
NXT TakeOver: WarGames is scheduled to emanate from the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois on Saturday, November 23rd as part of WWE Survivor Series 2019 pay-per-view weekend.
The announcement was made on Wednesday night's episode of NXT On USA from Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida, with NXT Women's Champion "The Queen of Spades" Shayna Baszler and former NXT UK Women's Champion Rhea Ripley being named as Team Captain's for the Women's WarGames match.
Ripley, Candice LeRae, Dakota Kai & Tegan Nox were on the babyface side of tonight's brawl, while Baszler, Bianca Belair, Io Shirai, Jessamyn Duke & Marina Shafir were on the heel side, so expect several of those names to be included in the contest.
Also announced during NXT On USA last night was Pete Dunne vs. Damian Priest in a singles match for next week's episode of NXT On USA, which goes down on Wednesday, November 6th.
