On tonight’s NXT, Dakota Kai and Shayna Baslzer face off in the main event for the NXT Women’s Championship. This bout marks the first time that Shayna has defended her title since winning it at TakeOver: New Orleans.
Additionally, this match comes after months of Baszler continuously antagonizing and intimidating Kai. Baszler initially injured Kai’s arm a few months ago. Since Kai came back from injury, Baszler has made it a point to consistently call Kai out and strike fear within Kai. However, as Kai noted last week, she is determined to not let tonight’s opportunity go to waste.
Listed below is WWE.com’s preview of tonight’s match up:
“After months of anticipation, Dakota Kai will get her opportunity to stand up to Shayna Baszler and potentially dethrone her for the NXT Women’s Championship. The Submission Magician has continually bullied the beloved Kai since injuring her in a contest in January. However, Kai has been heeding advice from the always unpredictable Nikki Cross over the past several weeks and could come into the title match with greater confidence and a much harder edge because of the association.
Will Kai be able to shake Baszler’s intimidation tactics once and for all en route to shocking Baszler in their title bout? Or will the meanspirited Queen of Spades continue her utterly dominant reign atop the Women’s division? Find out tonight on WWE NXT.”
