On Tonight’s NXT Rhea Ripley will finally get a chance to challenge for the NXT Women’s Championship when she faces of against current champion Io Shirai,
At Wrestlemainia 2020 Rhea Ripley lost the NXT Women’s Championship in a match against Charlotte Flair, she had a chance to regain the title at NXT Takeover: In your House in a triple threat match with Charlotte Flair and Io Shirai, Shirai would go on to win the Championship in said match.
Since then Rhea has not challenged for the title, instead she has slowly been working her way through the NXT Women’s roster including a feud with the Robert Stone Brand’s Mercedes Martina and Chelsea Green.
The “Genius of the Sky” Io Shirai has been a fighting champion since winning the belt, she has defended it against the likes of Tegan Nox, Dakota Kai and most recently Candice LeRae at Halloween Havoc.
Will the Aussie powerhouse be able to overcome the Genius of the Sky? Will NXT have new women’s champion by the end of the night? Will you be tuning into NXT tonight?
