Lyra Valkyria Earns Title Shot; Asuka vs. Roxanne Perez Set For Oct. 10 NXT

A lot took place on the Oct. 3 episode of NXT.

Four women’s matches!

The show started off with the N-Bex-T Women’s Champion Becky Lynch in the ring. She went over her match with Tiffany Stratton from Saturday. She says not only has she not been medically cleared to compete following the Extreme Rules bout but she made sure Stratton wasn’t as well.

We know that Lynch will face Tegan Nox next Monday Oct. 9 and defend her championship in. a match rescheduled from Oct. 2. However, that didn’t stop three women from coming out demanding their shot at The Man’s gold. First it was Lyra Valkyria who said Lynch was her inspirational to start wrestling. Ever since she saw Lynch in her first match in NXT she wanted nothing but to stand across the ring from her idol.

Next was Indi Hartwell. Hartwell came all the way from Raw to try and get the championship back that she never lost. And lastly, was Roxanne Perez who didn’t want to wait on the sideline for a shot against Lynch.

All three women had valid claims to a title match, but there was only one way to decide this – a Triple Threat. The winner to take on Lynch (or Tegan Nox) on Oct. 24 on the first night (out of two) of Halloween Havoc.

The final moments of the Triple Threat witnessed Kiana James getting involved and taking out Perez to make sure she didn’t win. Lynch was on commentary and went after James to make sure she didn’t do more damage. It would be Valkyria who picked up the win off of the pin on Hartwell.

Post match, Tegan Nox came out to make sure Valkyria knows she is up to face Lynch next.

Moments later, James was being interviewed and said there’s only one way that Perez will get a match with her. That is, if Perez can defeat Asuka on next week’s NXT!

Elsewhere on NXT, the rivalry between Gigi Dolin and Blair Davenport continues. This time the match goes forward and Dolin picks up the sneak win with a roll up pin. Dolin brought a chair into the ring and the referee stopped her from using it, but then Davenport picked it up and while distracted with the referee, Dolin got the pin.

Davenport attacked the referee post match.

A tag team match took place as Jacy Jayne and Thea Hail took on Lola Vice and Elektra Lopez. Despite Vice having and upcoming match in the Women’s Breakout Tournament, she couldn’t help get a win for her team here. Hail locks in a submission on Lopez for the win.

Duke Hudson and Andre Chase asked to be at ringside for this match which Jayne said it was okay.

Finally, a fourth women’s match took place which was the start of the NXT Women’s Breakout Tournament. Before the tournament officially kicked off, all eight competitors were inteoduced on the ramp. Kelani Jordan took on Izzi Dame in the first bout.

Jordan was said to be the favor in this match based on fans seeing more of her so far. She also recently had the biggest match of her career as she faced Blair Davenport at No Mercy.

Favored to win, and she did. Jordan picked up the big win with a split legged moonsault. She advances to the semi-finals who she will face the winner between Arianna Grace and Jakara Jackson.

Rhea Ripley also appeared alongside the rest of the Judgment Day to help Dominik Mysterio get the North American Title back. Which he did in the main event by defeating Trick Williams.
