Io Shirai def. Mia Yim in a WarGames Advantage Ladder Match

Team Baszler has seized the advantage for WarGames — and perhaps even its fourth and final member. But SmackDown had the last laugh after scoring a pivotal blow behind enemy lines thanks to a surprise appearance by Bayley

Io Shirai gained the win over Mia Yim in a jaw-dropping Ladder Match, securing the advantage for Team Baszler in the first-ever Women's WarGames match. 

In a preview of the brutality that could be in store at TakeOver in less than two weeks' time, The evil Genius of the Sky and The Head Baddie in Charge went to great lengths on behalf of their respective squads. Yim paid a price that could have a lasting impact and implication for the WarGames match itself, having her face crushed by the ladder after Shirai's missile dropkick into it.

That wasn't enough to keep Yim out of the fight, however. She battled back to find herself within reach of the briefcase — and the WarGames advantage — hanging above the ring before NXT UK Women's Champion Kay Lee Ray rushed the squared circle. Ray pushed the ladder to send Yim flying to the outside and through another ladder in devastating fashion.

With Yim battered in a heap on the outside, Shirai retrieved the briefcase and the victory. 

NXT Women's Champion and Team Captain Shayna Baszler took to the stage to express her delight with Shirai earning the advantage — but Bayley made sure The Queen of Spades couldn't bask in the moment for long.

After being ambushed multiple times in recent weeks on Friday nights, SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley gave Baszler a dose of her own medicine, flooring her with a chair before hitting a facebuster directly onto Baszler's title.

Getting out of dodge before the rest of Team Baszler could catch her, Bayley evened the score ahead of the Triple Threat Match at Survivor Series between her, the NXT Women's Champion and Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch.
