NXT UK Title match set for TakeOver: Cardiff

It has been officially announced that Toni Storm will be defending her NXT UK Women’s Championship against Kay Lee Ray. This match will take place on Aug. 31 in Cardiff Wales at a TakeOver event.

This will mark just the second TakeOver event for the NXT UK brand. Their first was in January in Blackpool. That event saw Storm defeat Rhea Ripley to become champion.

Ray earned her title opportunity in a 12-woman battle royal just last month. In a match where Xia Brookside thought she won her chance at the title, Ray spent a portion of the match on the outside of the ring. She went through the middle ropes earlier in the match and was never eliminated. She hit a clothesline on Brookside and then quickly eliminated her thus winning the match.

During the latest episode of NXT UK, Ray determined when she wanted to invoke her title opportunity. She starts the mind games on Storm by informing her that until TakeOver she will make the champs life a living hell.

This is the first and only match announced so far for this event.
