It was announced tonight on NXT that Mia Yim is officially the fourth member of Team Ripley for WarGames. Yim was chosen by the captain after she made the save for the team by taking out Team Baszler with a kendo stick. This came after Dakota Kai attempted to impress Ripley to become the fourth member but she couldn’t get the job done and lost her match to Shayna Baszler. At least that was Rhea Ripley‘s response to why she chose Yim over Kai.
Next week we will have Yim taking on Io Shirai from Team Baszler as they battle it out in a Ladder Match. The winner will earn the advantage of the entries to their WarGames match.
For those who are unfamiliar with the rules of WarGames, the match starts with one member of each team in the ring. After five minutes, a member from one of the teams will enter the cage, giving her team an advantage with a 2 on 1 handicap aspect.
From there a member of the other team will enter after a certain amount of time which is generally two minutes. This continues until all members of both teams are in the ring. At that point, the match officially starts. So having an advantage on the order of the entrants is crucial in this type of match-up.
Who do you think will win this Ladder Match and gain the advantage? Keep in mind that we still don’t know the fourth team member for Team Baszler. Leave your thoughts in the comment section below!
Check back in with Diva Dirt next week for who comes out with a win and more news as we get closer to NXT TakeOver: WarGames.
