After Saturday’s edition of NXT TakeOver: War Games, an interview with Rhea Ripley led to the reveal of who the women’s NXT team would be at the Survivor Series on Sunday night.

Ripley will team with Io Shirai, Candice LeRae, Bianca Belair, and Toni Storm.

The team will be part of the three-way elimination match against Team Raw (Charlotte Flair, Kabuki Warriors, Natalya, and Sarah Logan) and Team SmackDown (Sasha Banks, Nikki Cross, Carmella, Dana Brooke, and Lacey Evans).

The men’s team representing NXT will be announced by Shawn Michaels during the Survivor Series kickoff on Sunday prior to the main card.

On the call with the media, Paul Levesque’s reasoning for the delay in announcements was to see who would be healthy following the two War Games matches the night prior.

On Saturday’s TakeOver card, Pete Dunne defeated Damian Priest and Killian Dane to set up the NXT title match on Sunday against Adam Cole.

Below is the updated card for the Survivor Series:
*Brock Lesnar vs. Rey Mysterio in a No Holds Barred Match for the WWE title
*The Fiend vs. Daniel Bryan for the Universal title
*Adam Cole vs. Pete Dunne for the NXT title
*Becky Lynch vs. Bayley vs. Shayna Baszler
*AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Roderick Strong
*Viking Raiders vs. New Day vs. Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish
**Team Raw (Seth Rollins, Randy Orton, Drew McIntyre, Kevin Owens & Ricochet) vs. Team SmackDown (Roman Reigns, King Corbin, Shorty G, Mustafa Ali & Braun Strowman) vs. Team NXT (TBA)
*Team Raw (Charlotte Flair, Natalya, Kabuki Warriors & Sarah Logan) vs. Team SmackDown (Sasha Banks, Nikki Cross, Lacey Evans, Carmella & Dana Brooke) vs. Team NXT (Rhea Ripley, Io Shirai, Candice LeRae, Bianca Belair & Toni Storm)
