It’s #WarGames, Houston and Your #WrestlePals Like It
The WarGames TakeOver event coming up in Houston finally has that same exciting feeling that NXT has been built upon. While they always deliver, it has been a LONG time since a TakeOver has taken over. Survivor Series is stacked but holy hell, NXT is ready to fight. So let’s hop on in.
NXT TakeOver: WarGames
I’m extremely intrigued for the NXT War Games event Saturday. PPV debut for Lars, undisputed era, kairi, Velveteen Dream. The show has a combination of great talent that’s established and what the future can hold #NXTakeOver

THIS is what I’m talking about. New faces who feel massive and have really great stories heading in and a few who have already been showcased.
Johnny Gargano vs Pete Dunne for the UK Championship

We’ll get it the next week but yeah man. Wish it was on the card too. Just no room. This will be a barn burner no doubt.
Lars Sullivan vs Kassius Ohno

I get what you’re saying, man….(see above) but Johnny and Pete just got announced and Lars and Ohno has like a week on it. Something has to open or go on 2nd and this match has that kind of appeal to it. It will be a really good and hard hitting match and will fit into the card.
Aleister Black vs Velveteen Dream

Thank you. Yes. Yes it has been an outstanding build. It has been great to watch Velveteen Dream step into a feature role with someone I didn’t see him rubbing elbows with, in Aleister Black. This will be a tight knit affair and a lot of back and forth. Both finally feel like an incredibly important part of the NXT roster. I don’t care who wins, I just can’t wait to see it.
Peyton Royce vs Nikki Cross vs Ember Moon vs Kairi Sane
— Coaster (@milkdudder) November 17, 2017
She has been on an absolute roll since just before her collisions with Asuka. I feel bad for Ember Moon who has also been incredible, but it just doesn’t seem like it’s her time to shine with the title yet. I assume Royce and Sane essentially rule each other out. Man, as I type I am realizing that I don’t know who’s going to win this thing. Ha. Anyway it goes, we win because it’s going to be a coming out party for all four women as legitimate competition.
Drew McIntyre vs Andrade Cien Almas for the NXT Championship
— John McCusker (@mccusker86) November 16, 2017
Yes. Yep. Uh huh. Drew McIntyre is a man, man. Cien has show he can be sneaky and tough and is ready and willing to fight. Zelina Vega has been an absolute MVP in her role as Almas’ mouthpiece. Drew has looked great since his return, and I see that continuing here. Just can’t see the title changing hands if it isn’t in the main event. Wondering if there will be some shake up coming for the NXT roster.
WAR GAMES: Undisputed Era vs SaNITy vs Roderick Strong and Authors of Pain
— Will Mahoney (@HeelWillMahoney) November 16, 2017
So it won’t be EXACTLY this and the internet has once again lost it’s ever loving mind. To me, it doesn’t matter in the slightest. The story has been told really well up to now and it will be an excellent match to close the show. I haven’t a clue who will win, either.
