NXT Womens Champion Asuka, Peyton Royce, Billie Kay and Nikki Cross meet in a sit-down interview
At TakeOver: San Antonio, Asukas NXT Womens Championship will be on the line in a Fatal 4-Way Match, as she defends against Peyton Royce, Billie Kay and Nikki Cross. The four NXT Superstars paths crossed two weeks ago in an explosive confrontation that left The Empress of Tomorrow laid out in the middle of the ring.
In response to that encounter, an irate Asuka demanded a match against Royce, Kay and Cross. However, did the longest-reigning NXT Womens Champion ever make a mistake by putting her title on the line against three Superstars in one contest? Besides the fact that all three challengers are individually dangerous, The Empress of Tomorrow doesnt even have to be involved in the decision for the championship to change hands.
Just days before this epic contest goes down, all four competitors will meet face-to-face in a sit-down interview. Will tensions boil over when these heated rivals are within arms reach? Find out tonight at 8/7 C on the final stop before TakeOver: San Antonio, exclusively on WWE Network.
Ember Moon and Liv Morgan battle for position within NXT Womens division
Neither Ember Moon nor Liv Morgan are challenging for the NXT Womens Title at TakeOver: San Antonio, but they arent letting that slow them down. Instead, both Superstars are determined to show why they should be next in line to step up to the plate for the coveted title post-TakeOver.
Last week, in a friendly-but-tense backstage encounter, Moon and Morgan agreed to face off tonight, to show the rest of the crowded Womens division that there is plenty of competition in NXT. Whether the winner of the contest will eventually get a title opportunity remains to be seen, but it certainly could go a long way toward improving the victors standing.
Find out which of these NXT competitors will emerge victorious tonight at 8/7 C, only on WWE Network!
