Last week, it was announced that Kairi Sane would be returning to Full Sail University tonight to show off her new “treasure,” the NXT Women’s Championship. This evening, the Pirate Princess competes for the first time since her victory over Shayna Baszler at TakeOver: Brooklyn IV. While no opponent has been announced for Kairi as of yet, Sane will no doubt look to make a big statement in her first outing as NXT women’s champion.
Regarding Kairi’s return to NXT television, WWE.com wrote the following:
“Kairi Sane put an end to Shayna Baszler’s dominant reign as NXT Women’s Champion at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV, proving that she, too, can “go for the jugular.” Heavy is the head that wears the crown, though. As The Pirate Princess competes in her first match since winning the championship, she does so with a target on her back, as well. Who will be her first opponent, and who else has their eyes fixed on the top prize of the NXT Women’s division?”
Also don’t forget that immediately following NXT, the first episode of the second annual Mae Young Classic airs. The premiere episode of this year’s tournament will feature the following match ups:
- Meiko Satomura vs. Killer Kelly
- Rhea Ripley vs. MJ Jenkins
- Tegan Nox vs. Zatara
- Lacey Lane vs. Vanessa Kraven
