NXT Women’s Title Match Set For Battleground

After a tournament with eight strong contenders, we are down to two women with one who will become the new NXT Women’s Champion.

For those that may have missed the May 23 go-home episode of NXT, two semi-final matches took place. First, to kick off the show we had Cora Jade taking on Lyra Valkyria. Both women familiar with one another where Jade came out as the victor in their last encounter.

This time however, Valkyria came out with the shocking victory. The final moments of the match had Jade going for a back elbow on the middle ropes but Valkyria dodged the attempt. She followed it up with a spinning kick to get the pin.

Post-match, an enraged Jade wanted to make sure that Valkyria wouldn’t be heading into Sunday’s event at 100 percent. She took out the knee of Valkyria and followed it up with a kendo stick shot.

The second semi-finals match was the main event as Tiffany Stratton faced a former NXT Women’s Champion Roxanne Perez. For any fans who expected simply a Jade vs. Perez finals has certainly been mistaken. Stratton was victorious against Perez.

The final moments had Perez try to put Stratton away with Pop Rox but Stratton countered by slamming her into the top rope. Stratton hit the BME to get the pin to face Valkyria in the finals.

Post-match, Valkyria and Stratton were face to face where the belt was displayed before Perez was all of sudden being attacked by the mysterious figure on the ramp before Valkyria came over to help.

This same attacker has been targeting the women’s division and has attacked the likes of Nikkita Lyons, Wendy Choo, Sol Ruca, and Dani Palmer (at a live event).

Elsewhere on this week’s show, things aren’t over between former Toxic Attraction members Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne. A confrontation between the two with Jayne in the crowd and Dolin in the ring has led to a match next week. The two will face off in a weaponized steel cage match.

Battleground will be taking place this Sunday with the NXT Women’s Title on the line. Check in Sunday to talk about the show live.
