Team Candice def. Team Shotzi (WarGames Match)
In a stunning WarGames Match, Team Candice reigned supreme over Team Shotzi when Raquel González ended the brutal showdown by pinning NXT Women's Champion Io Shirai.
Dakota Kai entered the cage first for Team Candice. On the other side — after Shotzi Blackheart rode a newly constructed tank during her team’s entrance and even fired a missile from it — Ember Moon entered the cage to battle Kai for the first five minutes of combat.
Next, Blackheart entered and brought a toolbox with her, as she instantly put Kai at a 2-on-1 disadvantage.
González brought her uniquely powerful brand of enforcement to the contest and turned the tide quickly for her team.
After that, Rhea Ripley entered to transform the matchup into a nightmare for her opponents. Before the next competitor could enter, the match saw the first use of the hammer and other implements to come out of the toolbox.
Toni Storm then entered with a Kendo stick that she put to use in a hurry, blistering her foes with several savage strikes.
Shirai came to play next and threw ladders, chairs and more Kendo sticks into the rings. However, González and Storm repeatedly prevented the titleholder from entering through the WarGames door.
When Candice LeRae finally emerged as the final competitor, so did Indi Hartwell, and both took out Shirai to create a 4-to-3 advantage for Team Candice inside the cage. That was until Shirai climbed to the top of the cage, covered her upper body with a garbage can and fearlessly hurled herself down on top of everybody. With her entrance, Wargames officially began!
Trash cans, trash can lids, chairs, Kendo sticks, ladders and hammers all came into play during a breathtaking brawl, which was highlighted by Kai placing Shirai in a garbage can and crushing her with a double stomp from the top rope, as well as Moon leveling Kai with a jaw-dropping Eclipse onto two chairs.
Out of the carnage, González powerbombed Shirai off the top rope to send her splattering through a ladder between the two rings, claiming the pinfall over the NXT Women’s Champion.
