- WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels, who also works with the NXT Superstars at the WWE Performance Center, took to Twitter last night to praise the competitors in both WarGames matches.
"Those Superstars are going to feel the effects of that #WarGames match for a long time. But we will all remember it for much longer. Great way to set the tone for #NXTTakeOver #WeAreNXT," Michaels tweeted after the first-ever women's WarGames match, which saw Team Ripley defeat Team Baszler.
Michaels also tweeted after the men's WarGames main event, which was won by Team Ciampa. He wrote, "That. Was. Awesome. #NXTTakeOver #WarGames"
