In a battle between Jinny and Piper Niven, Jinny came out as the winner. This win makes her the number one contender for Kay Lee Ray‘s beloved NXT UK Women’s Championship. Her win didn’t happen without interference however as Joseph Conners was the catalyst that helped Jinny clinch her all-important victory.
Conners made his presence known midway through the match as he stood at ringside and looked on. Jinny would eventually roll to the outside creating some separation from her opponent. Niven went for a leap off of the ring apron and Conners pushed Jinny out of the way to take the hit. Jinny capitalized as she stayed on top of a fallen Niven.
Jinny gets Niven back in the ring and goes for a crossbody from the middle rope and gets caught. Unbeknownst to the referee, Conners then grabs the ankles of Niven which allows Jinny to turn it into a roll-up for the three count.
Kay Lee Ray is the longest-reigning champion on any brand in WWE at the moment. She is quickly approaching 500-days. Since NXT UK restarted from its hiatus due to the global pandemic, Ray has defended her title against Niven on a couple of occasions.
Could Jinny be the one to dethrone her and capture her first gold in the company? What are your thoughts?
