This Wednesday on NXT Asuka faced Nikki Cross and Ruby Riot in a Triple Threat Elimination Match for the NXT Women’s Championship. However, that match went to a no contest after Nikki and Asuka took their rivalry to the next level by destroying each other throughout the building.
Now WWE is reporting that Asuka will put her coveted title on the line against Nikki on the June 28 episode of NXT.
The title showdown will be a Last Woman Standing Match, further adding to the uncertainty and chaos surrounding the huge championship contest.
WWE had this to say about the matchup:
“The extreme stipulation was a logical next step in Asuka and Cross’s rivalry after the two brawled throughout Full Sail University on the June 14 episode of NXT.
“Asuka’s record-breaking NXT Women’s Title reign has overcome many obstacles, but she has yet to face a challenger as crazy as Cross in a bout that caters to chaos like a Last Woman Standing Match. Will we see the end of The Empress of Tomorrow’s historic title reign?”
The match is set for Wednesday at 8 pm ET, June 28, on the WWE Network.
