All last week, WWE celebrated that it has been five years since the Women’s Evolution started. It was spoken about on the programming and dominated the social media realm. This included many superstars discussing their favorite moments. The ladies of NXT UK have concluded the week by discussing their favorite moments and what it has meant to them.
Ever since the current COVID pandemic started, NXT UK has been on the back burner. After what had pre-taped for the brand had aired, unlike the brands stateside, NXT UK has been at a halt. Recently it has been discussed that the brand will continue despite some concerns because both the pandemic and the #SpeakingOut movement affect the UK brand. At this time the next NXT UK TakeOver event in Dublin for October is still in the plans.
Xia Brookside, Candy Floss, and Isla Dawn all shared their favorite moments. Brookside said that the Evolution pay-per-view in itself was a stand out for her. Candy Floss and Dawn both highlighted Toni Storm‘s win at the second Mae Young Classic.
Continuing on Aoife Valkyrie says her favorite memory is the Four Horsewomen but most specifically the Ironman match between Bayley and Sasha Banks in NXT. This signified the first and until recently, the only women’s match to become the main event at a TakeOver event. Jinny comments on the Evolution pay-per-view and states that women continue to prove that they can do it better than the men. Nina Samuels says her favorite moment was when the Divas Championship became the RAW Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 32.
Speaking of Jinny, you can view her newest promo below. She seems hungry to get to the top of the women’s division in the UK. Currently at the top is the longest-reigning woman holding a title in the company currently and that is the Kay Lee Ray with the NXT UK Women’s Title at 319 days and counting.
