Takeover: War Games November 17th, 2018

We’re November’s War Games PPV takes place next month. This is just speculation but you would have to figure the War Raiders will want in that match. Last year’s winners, the Undisputed Era, have continued to be the major faction in the territory albeit they do not and have not ever held the NXT Championship.

The other teams from last year’s War Games, Sanity and the team of the AOP, are both on the main roster. Roderick Strong teamed with the AOP but is now aligned with the Undisputed Era.

Last year’s War Games featured 3 teams but it’s not clear if this year will follow the same format or not.
