Bayley vs. Nia Jax rounds out WWE NXT TakeOver: London card

It's been pretty clear it was coming since Bayley successfully defended her Women's title against Eva Marie only to get laid out by Nia Jax in the aftermath of that victory, but NXT finally made it official last night - and today they've given us the above graphic, so you KNOW it's on.

Jax will get the unenviable task of following up back-to-back classics between the Hugster and Sasha Banks at the last two live events, but she has heat magnet Eva at her side and a good Davina vs. Goliath story from Creative to back it all up. In fact, the pressure is squarely on the Hugster to assist a newcomer to a TakeOver-quality match and build on the reputation that has NXT higher-ups pushing her in a way that's earned her nicknames like Joan Cena and John She-na.

And of course, they won't be alone on the London show, which comes our way next Wednesday, December 16 live on WWE Network at 3PM Eastern. This being NXT, they won't even be the only women's match on the card.

Here's the full list of announced bouts and segments for TakeOver: London...

- Apollo Crews vs. Baron Corbin
- Asuka vs. Emma
- Dash & Dawson (c) vs. Enzo Amore & Colin Cassady for the NXT Tag Team championship
- Nia Jax vs. Bayley (c) for the NXT Women's championship
- Finn  Bálor (c) vs. Samoa Joe for the NXT championship
