A couple surprise returns in NXT’s women’s battle royal

The main event for tonight’s episode of NXT is a battle royal to decide who faces Rhea Ripley for her NXT women’s title.

During the entrances, we had a couple surprises.

The first was the return of Kacy Catanzaro, who there was speculation had retired from the business. There was no confirmation but we hadn’t seen the former American Ninja Warrior star in a long while.

The second wasn’t as big of a return but it was a woman many thought we’d never see in NXT again, and that’s former Women’s champion Shayna Baszler.

Many, including myself, figured the next time we’d see her would be inside the Royal Rumble match, but it was a different battle royal instead. We’ll have to see this leads to another title opportunity for the Submission Magician or not.

Keep it turned to the live blog to see how these ladies do.
