Lyra Valkyria had one more challenge before she meets Becky Lynch on night one of Halloween Havoc next week. She faced Tegan Nox on the Oct. 17 episode of NXT.
Nox had originally asked Valkyria if she could hold off on her championship match because she wanted her own rematch against The Man. Valkyria wasn’t having it and proved that in her match against Nox. Nox had Natalya at ringside for support.
Natalya’s support wasn’t enough however, because the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Chelsea Green and Piper Niven showed up to cause a distraction and looking for a fight. Nox thought about going after them with Natalya but ran back into the ring. This is when Valkyria sealed the deal and pinned her.
Post-match, Green/Niven and Natalya/Nox fight to the back as Valkyria cuts an in ring promo. Valkyria talks about her history with Lynch. She adds how she wanted to become the first Irish woman to win the NXT Women’s Title but it was Lynch that took that away from her. So at Halloween Havoc, Valkyria intends on taking the title from Lynch.
Lynch responds on the big screen. She says that Valkyria is really, really good, but she is better. Lynch says that her oppoment can say this is a dream match but she needs to despise her in that ring. Lynch welcomes Valkyria to the big time.
At the end of the show, Valkyria was seen backstage watching the end of the main event.
She pulls a photo of her and Becky off the locker and says in one week the title will be hers. As she walks away, Jade Cargill appears on the TV and points at her watch to close the show.
Green and Niven respond to their actions.
