Triple Threat Made For The NXT Women’s Title At Spring Breakin’

Another jam packed episode of NXT with women regularly appearing throughout the show! Let’s get right to it!

The hip swivels of Lola Vice opens up women’s action first up against Sol Ruca. Competitive fast paced match with neither of the competitors getting a clear advantage. Lola has a serious tude and moves with something to prove. Ruca is incredibly athletic in the ring but her character doesn’t feel compelling for me yet. Blair Davenport has a “blink and you miss” distraction that ends up costing Ruca the match as she slips off the top rope with Vice picking up the win. 

Nattie, still upset at Lola from her attack last week, appears on the tron after the bout and challenges Lola to a match at Spring Breakin’ with NXT Underground rules. Not gonna lie, I never knew Nattie to be a combat specialist whereas Lola’s moveset involves a lot of striking. The writing is on the wall for this one but Nattie’s my girl so let’s see how this all goes down. 

Tatum Paxley has a vignette that goes in a really interesting direction. It’s not that she was obsessed with Lyra herself but that status Lyra obtained after becoming champion. In addition, how the title has propelled its holder into stardom and relevance, something Paxley has been deprived of but so desperately wants. Very much serving the title being her “precious” which I can get behind.  

Andre Chase and Thea Hall are backstage prior to Thea’s match later that night. The mentor and student relationship is on full display here with the two making up prior to Hall’s match later in the night.    

Brinley Reece has a social media promo with her exuberance on display. Cute cute. 

Whatever Arianna Grace is selling, I’m buying. I’m a sucker for character driven performers and her segment with Gigi was fun TV. Gigi did great here too, looking forward to seeing how this progresses. 

Kelly Kincaid is interviewing Karmen Petrovic saying she’s gonna be in Nattie’s corner for the NXT Underground match. Lola interrupts the segment with some sass and drops that there will be a contract signing next week. I have a feeling this segment will be unintentionally hilarious based on the performers involved. 

Sol Ruca is backstage with the General Manager Ava and challenges Blair Davenport to a No DQ match at Spring Breakin!  

Tatum Paxley vs. Thea Hail next! Thuis is fun!

Thea is a ball of energy in the ring and has great facial expressions that lends so well to Tatum’s spooky mannerisms. Match had some fun moments and got the characters across.

Jazmyn Nyx is out to distract the referee at the end, which was super random. However, Jacy Jayne trips up Hail for the distraction which allows Paxley to pick up the win. Things break down super quick as a brawl breaks out on the outside. Back in the ring and Lyra Valkyria is PISSED, throwing fists and going ham on blacklight barbie. Super fun albeit blink and you miss it action that immediately cuts away to our next backstage segment.  

Roxanne, who is completely unbothered by what’s going on in the ring, decides whomever emerges victorious out of the Lyra/Tatum debacle can be the next challenger for the NXT Women’s Champion in a backstage segment. She shades Ava over how easy it is to make matches which comes back to bite her because Ava pulls a Phonie, and let’s Roxanne know she doesn’t make the matches around here, the GM does!

At Spring Breakin’ next week, it will be a triple threat match between Roxanne vs. Lyra vs. Tatum for the NXT Women’s Championship!

Spring Breakin’ will take place over the course of two nights. April 23 and April 30.

Spring Breakin’ – April 23

  • NXT Women’s Title – Roxanne Perez (c) vs. Tatum Paxley vs. Lyra Valkyria
  • Contract signing Natalya vs. Lola Vice
  • Sol Ruca vs. Blair Davenport – Beach Brawl No DQ

Spring Breakin’ – April 30

  • Natalya vs. Lola Vice – NXT Underground

Author’s note:

Fun build for Spring Breakin’! So many of the same finishes on tonight’s show, Ava needs to start coming down harder and laying down the law. Speaking of whom, really enjoyed Ava in her segment with Roxanne tonight and the confidence she’s exhibiting as she grows into her authority role. Fun stuff all around from NXT again, looking forward to next week!
