Kay Lee Ray will defend the NXT UK women’s championship against Meiko Satomura on March 4th. NXT UK announced the title match during a press conference on this week’s show.
Lee Ray is the longest-reigning women’s champions of the modern era, holding the NXT UK women’s championship for over 500 days. After Lee Ray’s last title defence against Jinny on January 21st, she demanded she faces the best in the world, and Satomura is most certainly that.
Meiko Satomura is widely regarded as one of the best and most lethal wrestlers ever to do it. Known as the “Final Boss”, Satomura will undoubtedly give Lee Ray her toughest challenge thus far.
Satomura arrived on NXT UK last week in emphatic fashion when she perfectly executed her in-ring prowess over Isla Dawn in her debut. During the match, Kay Lee Ray paid close attention to the debutant, watching the master at work from afar.
Also, on the show, Dani Luna fought Aleah James in her first match since October last year. Luna showcased her power against the tenacious James. James’ high-flying offence caused Luna some concern throughout the bout, but her impressive strength prevailed, and she put James away with a big powerbomb.
