The next NXT TakeOver event In Your House is rapidly approaching on June 13. It was announced from this week’s NXT that we will have two women’s matches on the card.
The NXT Women’s Title will be defended as Raquel Gonzalez will be putting her championship on the line against Ember Moon. Last week, Moon and Shotzi Blackheart defeated Dakota Kai and Gonzalez. After that match, Gonzalez took out Blackheart while Kai held back Moon and forced her to watch the attack.
This week, Moon had revenge on her mind and wanted to avenge her fallen tag team partner. She took to the mic in the ring and called out Gonzalez which led to a brawl. Moon ended up being attacked by Kai from behind. Moon vs Kai is set for next week.
The second women’s match for In Your House will be Mercedes Martinez vs. Xia Li. Last week after Martinez picked up a win against Zayda Ramier, she was marked by Tian Sha.
Li reveals in a vignette that she has had an anger against Martinez dating back four years when they faced off in the Mae Young Classic. Li feels that Martinez tried to shame her and tried to disgrace her in front of her family. Martinez responded saying both of them aren’t the same women they were back in the Mae Young Classic. Martinez adds that Li is standing in her way back to the women’s title.
The Way was interviewed prior to their match. Candice LeRae got upset because the topic of Poppy was brought up. She then noticed that Indi Hartwell was listening to 80s power ballads so she made her leave the phone behind. Dexter Lumis then showed up to grab the phone and listened to the music with a tear rolling down his face.
The Way defeated Zayda Ramier & Zoey Stark in a non-title bout. To end the match, LeRae hit Wicked Stepsister on Ramier followed up by Hartwell’s Pretty Savage to get the pin for the win.
