We have new tag team champions in the women’s division of NXT.
The unlikely duo of Kiana James and Fallon Henley are the new champions as they defeated Katana Chance and Kayden Carter at Vengeance Day. This is the first gold for both Henley and James in WWE. This ended the reign of the KC’s at 186 days. This was the longest reign of any women’s tag team across both NXT and the main roster.
The final moments of the match took place when Chance went up top for her 450 splash finisher on Henley. James knocked Chance off the turnbuckle to avoid the splash. This allowed Henley to get a pin on Carter while James held the legs down under the ropes as the referee didn’t see it.
The new champs celebrated in the ring with Brooks & Jensen.
The other women’s match of the event had Roxanne Perez retaining her NXT Women’s Title against both members of Toxic Attraction in a Triple Threat. It was originally a pure handicap bout as both Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne would dominate the champion. This came to a halt a third of the way through when Dolin and Jayne realized only one could become champ. Although at one point in the match, both Dolin and Jayne almost had Perez in a double pin after headbutting each other and falling on top of her.
Despite it being a true Triple Threat throughout most of the match, in the end, we witnessed Dolin and Jayne teaming again to try and take out Perez. They even brought out a table and set it up on the outside. It would end up being Dolin that went through the table from the ring post as Perez would then hit a Super Pop Rox from the top on Jayne to get the pin and the victory.
During the show, there was also a taped promo of Lyra Valkyria issuing a challenge for this week’s NXT and it appears that Valentina Feroz has accepted. The two face off this Tuesday.
