NXT Takeover: WarGames: Raquel Gonzalez Pins NXT Women’s Champion Io Shirai to Win Women’s WarGames

This year’s War Games pay-per-view kicked off with the Women’s War Games match and the women have already stolen the show.

There were some brutal moments throughout, with Io Shirai putting her body on the line when she dived from the top of the cage and took out the whole of Team Candice LeRae.

Indie Hartwell made her presence known when she tried to help LeRae lock Io Shirai out of the match, but obviously, this didn’t work.

The showdown of the night was between Raquel Gonzalez and Rhea Ripley who went toe-to-toe as the two heavyweights of their respective team.

The match was filled with weapons that were used to inflict pain and suffering on some of the best female wrestlers in the world.

Despite their being carnage inside both rings, the ending was still something of a shock as Raquel Gonzalez put Io Shirai through a ladder and then was able to secure the pin.

This meant that it was Team Candice LeRae who walked out of War Games victorious, but the bigger story here is the fact that Gonzalez has pinned the NXT Women’s Champion and could be in line for a Championship opportunity.
