Tonight on the WWE Network, NXT will be putting on their highly-anticipated WarGames pay-per-view at the Allstate Arena.
At the end of this week’s NXT, only four matches had been announced for the pay-per-view, including the first-ever WarGames match featuring women.
The two WarGames matches will likely run slightly long, perhaps explaining why only four matches have been announced for the pay-per-view.
In somewhat of an unusual move, NXT has taken to Twitter to announce a fifth match for the show. The bout will take place on the pre-show.

The pre-show will see Isaiah Swerve Scott go one-on-one with Angel Garza in what has the potential to be one of the matches of the night.
Both Scott and Garza have impressed during NXT’s run on the USA Network, with Garza earning a Cruiserweight Championship match against Lio Rush two weeks ago.
On the matter, WWE.com‘s article had the following to say:
Before NXT TakeOver: WarGames gets rolling, Isaiah “Swerve” Scott and Angel Garza will be looking to make a big statement when the two competitors meet during the Takeover: WarGames Pre-Show.
The Pre-Show begins tonight at 6:30 ET/3:30 PT and will be available on the award-winning WWE Network, as well as WWE.com, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. Charly Caruso, Sam Roberts and Pat McAfee will host the Pre-Show coverage.
Scott has showed unbelievable promise, and his determination was on full display in a recent victory over Bronson Reed on NXT. Garza is looking to bounce back after a controversial loss in his challenge for the NXT Cruiserweight Championship against Lio Rush.
Who will set the tone with a victory as NXT takes center stage in Chicago? Tune in to the NXT TakeOver: WarGames Pre-Show tonight at 6:30 ET/3:30 PT to find out
