Rhea Ripley sets her sights on becoming a two-time NXT Women’s Champion and her goal may very well come next week. It was announced on tonight’s NXT that Ripley will challenge the NXT Women’s Champion Io Shirai next week with the title on the line.
These two women certainly have a history with each other throughout this year. Ripley was the champion heading into the year as she won the title last December from Shayna Baszler. She held the title until WrestleMania when she lost the title to the Royal Rumble winner, Charlotte Flair.
Flair put the title on the line at NXT TakeOver: In Your House against Ripley and Shirai in a Triple Threat. Shirai has been champion since that event which took place in June after pinning Ripley to win Flair’s title.
Now, Ripley is on a collision course to end 2020 much like she did 2019 and that is the NXT Women’s Champion. You can view their Prime Target promo below.
