WWE NXT Preview: Ladder Match for WarGames Advantage, Lio Rush Defends Cruiserweight Title & More


The Superstars of the WWE NXT brand return to Full Sail University tonight for another packed show on the road to NXT Takeover: Chicago and Survivor Series.

There are currently only two matches officially announced for this evening’s broadcast, although we expect more to revealed throughout the day – we’ll keep you posted, so remember to check back with us.

The main event will see two of the best women’s wrestlers in the world, Mia Yim and Io Shirai, face off in a ladder match to determine which of their respective teams will earn an advantage heading into the first women’s WarGames match in history.

Also scheduled for the show, Lio Rush will defend the WWE Cruiserweight Championship against Angel Garza, who has been on something of a hot streak in recent weeks. Garza pinned Gentleman Jack Gallagher three weeks ago while Rush was on commentary, sending a message, and just last week followed that up with a win over Drew Gulak to officially earn the title match.

We also expect there will be more in the way of the Raw/Smackdown/NXT invasion angle playing out. WWE NXT airs live tonight on the USA Network starting at 8:00 PM ET. Join us for live coverage throughout the evening.
