It was previously made official that Dakota Kai and Toxic Attraction (Mandy Rose, Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne) would be competing against Io Shirai, Cora Jade and Raquel Gonzalez on 12/5 in WarGames. Kay Lee Ray opted to align with Jade, Shirai and Gonzalez and she’ll be joining their team. On the 11/30 NXT 2.0, Kay Lee Ray and Dakota Kai are going one-on-one and the winner will have secured the WarGames advantage for their team.

During a pre-match interview, Indi Hartwell said Dexter Lumis is going to be out of action for a month after Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams ambushed him and stomped a chair onto his hand.

NXT Women’s Champion Mandy Rose took on Cora Jade and Jade scored a win over Rose.

NXT Tag Team Champions Imperium (Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner) agreed to defend their titles at WarGames. They will meet either Kyle O’Reilly and Von Wagner or Legado Del Fantasma’s Joaquin Wilde and Raul Mendoza. Those two teams will compete for the title opportunity.

Santos Escobar had his first match back on NXT 2.0 since losing a North American Title match to Isaiah ‘Swerve’ Scott. Escobar defeated Malik Blade in his return.

Announced for 11/30 is Joe Gacy’s ‘All Inclusive Invitational’. Gacy is set to challenge Roderick Strong for the Cruiserweight Title at WarGames.

To open the 11/23 show, Grayson Waller interrupted the signature intro and said his name will one day be mentioned alongside talents like Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, John Cena and Roman Reigns. Waller then had a singles match against NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa which Ciampa won.

Waller and L.A. Knight brawled throughout the entire show. Both men are competing in WarGames.
