NXT TakeOver: WarGames was filled with crazy moments, but one of the most shocking had to do with Rhea Ripley's team in the Women's WarGames match. Things were proceeding as normal as Ripley made her way into the ring, but then Dakota Kai, a last minute addition, turned on Tegan Nox and brutally attacked her, cutting down Ripley's team in half. We imagine that had something to do with Ripley's NXT team that will show up tomorrow at Survivor's Series, which Triple H and Ripley just revealed the roster for on the post TakeOver media call (via Fightful).
According to Ripley, the team will be herself, Candice LeRae, Bianca Belair, Io Shirai, and Toni Storm, who made an appearance as part of NXT's group on the last episode of SmackDown. Her help couldn't come at a better time, especially since Baszler's got a match herself at Survivor Series and two stars are now down thanks to Dakota Kai.
Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful posted the roster, and you can see the post below.
