WWE NXT notes: Team McAfee gets WarGames advantage, Grizzled Young Veterans

Pete Dunne secured the WarGames advantage for his team, Grizzled Young Veterans return and more coming out of NXT.

NXT’s TakeOver: WarGames card is taking shape and the men’s WarGames match was made official last week as Undisputed ERA (Adam Cole, Bobby Fish, Kyle O’Reilly & Roderick Strong) are taking on Pat McAfee, Pete Dunne and NXT Tag Team Champions Danny Burch and Oney Lorcan. Pete Dunne and Kyle O’Reilly competed in a Ladder match in the main event of tonight’s edition of NXT and Dunne scored the win to secure the WarGames advantage for his team.

Former NXT U.K. Tag Team Champions Grizzled Young Veterans (Zack Gibson & James Drake) made their return to NXT and the duo ambushed Chase Parker and Matt Martel. Gibson and Drake are listed on the NXT roster page.

Ember Moon went one-on-one with Candice LeRae to open the show and Toni Storm, who appeared to be aligned with Moon, ambushed Moon from behind and aligned herself with Candice LeRae. Storm is joining LeRae, Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzalez at TakeOver: WarGames to take on Shotzi Blackheart’s team.

Kevin Owens was on commentary for the show and he also hosted The K.O. Show which led to Leon Ruff vs. Damian Priest vs. Johnny Gargano for the North American Title being announced for TakeOver.
