The long wait for a TakeOver will end when WWE kickstart their Survivor Series weekend with TakeOver: WarGames. The program for the women’s title will continue from Evolution as Shayna Baszler is booked to face Kairi Sane. The duo have been embroiled in a back and forth feud for months now. Baszler won back the title thanks to interference from Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke.
To settle things, the WWE has announced that the match will be contested under two out of three falls rules. The upcoming bout will be their fourth straight match at a major event. Check out WWE’s statement below regarding the same.
After Shayna Baszler reclaimed the NXT Women’s Title in controversial fashion over Kairi Sane at WWE Evolution, the two arch-rivals will write another brutal chapter in their red-hot rivalry when they tear into each other at TakeOver: WarGames II, where they will face off in a 2-out-of-3 Falls Match.
The volcanic tensions between these two Superstars reached a new peak at WWE Evolution, where Baszler pulled out all stops against a laser-focused Sane in their hard-hitting NXT Women’s Championship battle. As Sane thwarted her opponent’s signature coldblooded offense with her own brand of killer instinct, Baszler eventually opted for some assistance from her fellow Four Horsewomen of MMA, Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke. The helping hand by Baszler’s pals guided The Queen of Spades to a victory over The Pirate Princess, making her NXT’s first-ever two-time Women’s Champion. Due to the nature in which this match was won, it was no surprise when Sane invoked her rematch clause.
Baszler and Sane’s contentious rivalry has simmered above blue flame for over a year, dating back to the Mae Young Classic Final in 2017. Since then, The Queen of Spades and The Pirate Princess have been continuously charring this angst in a series of epic confrontations. Now, they face off in an endurance-testing battle in which the first Superstar to claim two falls wins the match and NXT Women’s Title.
