Tonight’s NXT has a big championship match on the card which will see NXT Women’s Champion Raquel Gonzalez in her first defense against Mercedes Martinez.
Since Gonzalez defeated Io Shirai at the last TakeOver event, Martinez has been the one woman that has kept an eye on her and has been hungry for gold. Martinez had to face Dakota Kai two weeks ago but the match ended in a disqualification due to interference from the champion.
A clash of the two powerhouses will be a highlight of tonight’s show.
Speaking of champions, last week we crowned the new NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions in a stellar main event Street Fight. The Way’s Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell took out the now-former champions Ember Moon and Shotzi Blackheart. How will the new champions fair tonight and what will the former champs have to say?
We also saw a new stable fully form last week which includes Briana Brandy. Brandy has made some previous appearances on RAW Underground. Will we hear anything from her specifically tonight?
The feud between Zoey Stark and Toni Storm has been heating up as well. Storm hasn’t been happy that “rookies” have been getting over on her. Both Stark and Zayda Ramier have victories against the former NXT UK Women’s Champion.
You can see the most recent episode of What’s NeXT below where Ramier is interviewed by McKenize Mitchell and Alicia Taylor. Ramier admits a dream match of hers would be to face Ember Moon.
Who else may we end up seeing tonight? The list is endless….
Earlier today, the next TakeOver event has been announced. We will see the return of In Your House for the second year in a row. It will take place on June 13.
