Last November, WWE brought back an old favorite match from WCW, the WarGames, offering their take on the match for NXT TakeOver back on November 18th. The bout varied somewhat from its predecessor, sporting the usual two rings, but this time around the cage surrounding did not have a top to it. It also featured three teams of three instead of the traditional five-on-five format, as Roderick Strong joined The Authors Of Pain for the night to take on SAnitY and The Undisputed Era.
Last week, it was revealed that MLW would be offering their own WarGames this September (for more on that go here), but they won’t be the only ones putting on the match this Fall. Today, WWE has announced that NXT TakeOver: WarGames II will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Saturday, November 17th:
NXT TakeOver: WarGames returns this November when the black-and-yellow brand comes to the STAPLES Center on the eve of Survivor Series on Saturday, Nov. 17.
The NXT Universe witnessed the monumental return of the first WarGames Match in nearly 20 years last November. Initially made famous as one of the premier match types in the NWA and, later, WCW, WarGames is a battleground unlike any other, pitting teams against each other inside two rings surrounded by a steel cage.
Last year’s match, fought among Undisputed ERA, Authors of Pain & Roderick Strong and SAnitY, set a new standard for brutality and gave Undisputed ERA bragging right after they picked up the historic win.
Don’t miss out on your chance to watch the action of TakeOver: WarGames live and in person this November when NXT comes to The City of Angels. Head to nxttickets.com this Friday to secure your seat!
