Next week's "Takeover: WarGames" go-home episode will also feature Andrade "Cien" Almas doing an in-ring face-off with NXT Champion Drew McIntyre.
- As noted, Takeover will feature Kassius Ohno vs. Lars Sullivan in singles action. Lars tweeted the following after the match was announced by NXT General Manager William Regal:
Thank you Mr. Regal. I can assure you Kassius will be the victim of a public dissection at Takeover. This will generate interest for future Takeover's. Everyone comes out a winner with this decision. ?? https://t.co/wxUvNX1mDM— LarsWWE (@LarsSWWE) November 9, 2017
