Former NXT Women’s Champion Io Shirai made her return to the black and yellow brand last week.
Introduced by Poppy, Shirai made a quick statement by attacking one-half of the NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions – Candice LeRae in the ring. LeRae has been having her issues with Poppy over the last couple of weeks.
Advertised for tonight, Shirai will be on the mic as she has something to say.
Tonight will also see the fall-out from this past weekends TakeOver event, In Your House. Raquel Gonzalez retained her NXT Women’s Title against Ember Moon and Shotzi Blackheart made her return after weeks of absence. Blackheart had some unfinished business with Dakota Kai and chased her from ringside.
Advertised for tonight, Gonzalez and Kai will face the team of Kayden Carter and Kacy Catanzaro.
Also at In Your House, Xia Li picked up a big win on Mercedes Martinez. After the match, Martinez came face to face with Mei Ying and paid the price after being slammed into the plexiglass at ringside. Does Tian Sha still have unfinished business with Mercedes or will they move onto a new victim?
In a bonus match that wasn’t aired, a tag team bout between The Robert Stone Brand vs. Zoey Stark and Sarray also took place. You can view it below. The Robert Stone Brand was confronted by Franky Monet after the match.
At the end of TakeOver on Sunday, General Manager William Regal stated in a tearful manner that there is change coming to NXT. He has been concerned about the brand being uncontrollable with chaos ensuing between the Superstars. What could Regal possibly have to say about the future of the brand? Tune in tonight!
