Tonight is the last stop before NXT TakeOver: XXX this Saturday and so far we only have one women’s match for that event.
Dakota Kai will have one of the most important matches of her career as she challenges Io Shirai for the NXT Women’s Championship. Last week both women had video promos that hyped up their upcoming match. What will they have on tonight’s NXT heading into TakeOver?
What is being advertised tonight is an unlikely duo of Shotzi Blackheart and Rhea Ripley teaming up to face The Robert Stone Brand. After Mercedes Martinez took out Kacy Catanzaro in a win for the RS Brand, Ripley rushed to the ring to seek some revenge. It was Martinez that was the reason why Kai is facing Shirai at TakeOver instead of Ripley.
Blackheart joined Ripley to help against a common enemy.
Feel free to discuss tonight’s show in the comment section below.
