WWE is making big changes to the lineup for NXT’s TakeOver: WarGames II. According to F4WOnline’s Daily Update, The PPV is going from the usual five matches to only four matches. They changed it because of the overall time length the matches are expected to get, which includes The WarGames Match between The Undisputed Era and Ricochet, Pete Dunne & The War Raiders along with NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler vs. Kairi Sane being a 2-Out-Of-3 Falls Match.
The Kassius Ohno vs. Matt Riddle Match is still scheduled to take place this weekend in Los Angles, but it will be taped before the actual TakeOver Event with the intention to air it on the weekly NXT TV show, either on 11/21 but possibly later. One week’s episode of TVs is still expected to be taped prior to TakeOver, with the other shows scheduled to be taped this week on 11/15.
