NXT Womens Champion Io Shirai has joined Shotzi Blackheart’s team to round things out before WarGames this Sunday.
During the ladder match on this week’s NXT between Blackheart and Raquel Gonzàlez to determine which team has the advantage at WarGames, the other women from the WarGames match came down and started a huge brawl.
Io Shirai came out of nowhere to prevent Gonzalez from winning. She took out everyone at ringside with a moonsault. This left Blackheart alone to climb the ladder and retrieve the briefcase with the golden ticket.
The Genius of the Sky joins Rhea Ripley, Ember Moon and Blackheart who face off against Team Candice LeRae with Dakota Kai, Raquel Gonzàlez, and Toni Storm.
This WarGames match has serious potential to upstage the men’s equivalent this year and when you can say that about a match that features, The Undisputed Era, Oney Lorcan, Danny Burch, Pat McAfee and Pete “By God” Dunne then you have to be doing something right.
