WWE NXT preview, Nov. 21, 2018: Cross must answer for her mind games in battle with LeRae
As the smoke of NXT TakeOver: WarGames II clears, tension still billows around the black-and-gold brand. After the chaos that surrounded Aleister Black’s emphatic return, Nikki Cross and Candice LeRae are finally set to throw down in a match that has retribution written all over it.
Candice LeRae is ready to “play”
The black-and-gold brand hasn’t been the same since Nikki Cross uttered the words “I know who attacked Aleister Black.” That shocking revelation has since reshaped NXT, exposing a dark side of former golden boy Johnny Gargano and producing his bullish clash with Black at NXT TakeOver: WarGames II. The remnants of Cross’ disclosure may have also impacted the headspace of Candice LeRae, who has made no secret of her disdain for NXT’s Twisted Sister. What form of ramification does LeRae have planned when she steps inside the yellow ropes to “play?”
As made clear time and time again, Cross loves her “playtime.” In fact, she showcased just that in a chaotic matchup against SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch during SmackDown LIVE in England a few weeks back. But playtime could be over, as LeRae appears tired of Cross’ twisted mind games. In the battle between the enraged and unhinged, which Superstar will settle the storm with a victory?
Nightmare on Sullivan street
Lars Sullivan is NXT’s walking nightmare. In his last fight – or fright, rather – The Freak went all-out to destroy Velveteen Dream just 10 days before the latter’s NXT Title Match against Tommaso Ciampa at TakeOver: WarGames II. This week, The Rocky Mountain Monster will go uncaged, once again, in front of the NXT faithful inside Los Angeles’ STAPLES Center.
Judging by the vignette shown during Survivor Series, The Freak appears to be broadening his horizons beyond NXT. Yet, Sullivan’s appetite for destruction in the black-and-gold brand remains insatiable. Who’s next on his menu?
More glory to bask in
As the NXT Universe continues to bask in his glory, Keith Lee prepares to put up more numbers on the board, as he is set for action this week. Who will be the next competitor to experience his “Limitless” potential firsthand?
NXT TakeOver: WarGames II aftermath
Mamma mia! Thanks to a chaotic night of action, NXT TakeOver: WarGames II gave NXT announcer Mauro Ranallo plenty of opportunities to exclaim his famous phrase. From Tommaso Ciampa and Velveteen Dream’s heart-racing NXT Championship classic, to Shayna Baszler and Kairi Sane’s heated 2-out-of-3 Falls series, and, yes, the all-out mayhem that ensued inside WarGames, the historic night of action has left behind a cloud of emotions. Watch the fallout from the unforgettable event, including exclusive post-match footage, when WWE NXT streams at 8/7 C, exclusively on WWE Network.
