The following matches are advertised for the NXT Takeover: WarGames event that will be held Saturday in Chicago, Illinois at Allstate Arena.
-Adam Cole, Bobby Fish, Kyle O’Reilly, and Roderick Strong vs. Tommaso Ciampa, Keith Lee, Dominik Dijakovic, and one wrestler to be announced in a WarGames match.
-Rhea Ripley, Candice LeRae, Tegan Nox, and Mia Yim vs. Shayna Baszler, Io Shirai, Bianca Belair and Kay Lee Ray in a WarGames match.
-Finn Balor vs. Matt Riddle.
Powell’s POV: All signs point to Pete Dunne vs. Damian Priest vs. Killian Dain in a Triple Threat match being added to the lineup, but that match is not official. Johnny Gargano was originally scheduled to face Balor, and Riddle was originally in the WarGames match. Gargano is off the show due to injury, so the decision was made to replace him with Riddle in the match against Balor, while Dijakovic will take Riddle’s spot in the WarGames match.
