WWE.com has taken a look at the on-going NXT Women’s Championship tournament and its participants at the semi-final stage.
On Alicia Fox, Byron says: “Alicia Fox knows all about making history. As the first African-American WWE Divas Champion, it seems only fitting that Fox is inching closer toward becoming the first NXT Women’s Champion.”
Byron’s ring announcing colleague Kendall Skye weighed in on whether Alicia’s past success could go to her head in this tournament, saying: “Alicia Fox is obviously a favorite because she’s the most experienced Diva of the bunch, Skye admitted. With that said, I know many of the NXT Divas very well and part of me thinks that Alicia runs the risk of being overconfident in this tournament. If she’s not careful, I could easily see one of the other Divas scoring an upset.”
Australian Emma’s description focuses on whether her popularity can help her win the title: “When she first burst onto the scene, the Diva from Down Under displayed what some would describe as laughable dance moves. Surprisingly, those same moves would grow near and dear to the hearts of the NXT Universe.”
WWE Diva Rosa Mendes weighs in on the “Diva of Tomorrow”, Paige’s chances of taking home the gold: “I’m always keeping my eye on the Divas of NXT and I think Paige has a lot of potential. She has a different move set than a lot of the Divas, which makes her difficult to prepare for. In fact, I think one day she’ll give a lot of the WWE Divas a run for their money on Raw or SmackDown. Until then, I expect her to do exceptionally well.”
Finally, Sasha Banks offers her thoughts on Summer Rae’s chances of becoming the inaugural champion: “The one thing I learned about Summer Rae is that she has a lot of tricks up her sleeve, Banks stated. A lot of these Divas show you all their cards up front and you know what they are all about, but Summer is different. She’s sneaky and conniving, but she’s also confident. That could be her recipe for success if she keeps it up.”
