Four more women added to NXT Women's War Games.
Ton Tuesday's episode of WWE's The Bump, Shayna Baszler and Rhea Ripley picked two of their three teammates for the Women's War Games bout at NXT TakeOver: WarGames III. Baszler added Io Shirai and Bianca Belair to her squad while Ripley chose Candice LeRae and Tegan Nox. Neither woman disclosed her third pick. Baszler encouraged Ripley to select Dakota Kai, but Ripley didn't bite. Baszler went as far as calling Kai a "wasted pick" should she be selected.

Unhappy with the disrespect thrown her way by Baszler, Kai challenged the NXT Women's Champion to a match on Wednesday's episode of WWE NXT. NXT General Manager William Regal made the match official shortly after the challenge.
Oh @QoSBaszler, I’m a wasted pick? I’ll prove to you… AND I will prove to @RheaRipley_WWE that I should be on her team. @QoSBaszler maybe there was a time I was afraid of you, but NOT ANYMORE! I’ll prove it tonight.— captain kota (@DakotaKai_WWE) November 6, 2019
