It would nice if NXT could break out the WarGames stipulation a bit more organically. You know, where and whenever a feud between competing factions called for Dusty Rhodes’ two-rings-one-cage invention, instead of just every November.
But I guess that’s not the reality of promoting in 2019, where the black-and-yellow brand wants to stake their claim to the night before major WWE pay-per-view (PPV) events before a competitor can announce anything that targets their audience. And where the market is saturated to such a degree that even the biggest names don’t equal instant sellout.
All of which is build up to say that today (May 20), Triple H announced NXT’s third annual TakeOver: WarGames for Sat., Nov. 23 in Chicago’s Allstate Arena. Tickets go on sale this for the Survivor Series’ eve show this upcoming Friday:

Who do you think Undisputed ERA face this year? Or will this be the first one without Adam Cole, Kyle O’Reilly, Bobby Fish and Roderick Strong?
