The hunt for the NXT Women’s Championship is heating up and many women on the roster have thrown their name in as the next contender. Rhea Ripley delivered a quick defeat for Aliyah last week and declared her spot to face Shayna Baszler for the title. Bianca Belair had something to say about that later on in the night after she took out Dakota Kai.
Belair stated that Ripley needs to get through her first before she can reach Baszler. Although Belair has already had a couple of shots at both Baszler and the title she isn’t done yet. Belair wasn’t present for NXT’s episode tonight, but Ripley would make her way out to the ring to confront Io Shirai.
Much like Belair and Ripley, Shirai believes she should be next to go after the NXT Women’s Champion. Ripley would state then that she will have to take care of Belair next week.
The match has now been made official, however, it is not being declared as having a number one contenders implication at this time.
