With SummerSlam approaching quickly, this also means the next TakeOver event is right around the corner as well. This will be the 30th TakeOver event so any women’s matches should go above and beyond.
We know that Io Shirai is the NXT Women’s Champion. She has held the title since the TakeOver: In Your House event that took place in June. She defeated both Rhea Ripley and Charlotte Flair in a triple threat. Her first title defense against Tegan Nox was successful but now she either has to face her old rival Rhea Ripley or Dakota Kai.
Ripley and Kai will square off tonight to determine who moves forward to face Shirai.
In addition to this number one contender match, what is next for the Robert Stone Brand. Mercedes Martinez took NXT by storm as she joined the brand a few weeks ago. What will she and Aliyah have in store tonight for the women’s locker room?
Who do you think will be next to face Shirai? Feel free to use the comment section below to talk about tonight’s event.
