TakeOver: New Orleans gets a Women’s title rematch

Even after she lost to NXT Women’s champion Ember Moon at TakeOver: Philadelphia, Shayna Baszler made it clear she wasn’t done with chasing the belt, or punishing the women who currently holds it. A post-match choke hold led to a rematch, when Baszler tried to put Moon out with an even more serious injury.

On the episode which aired on WWE Network tonight (Mar. 14), after weeks of taunts and threats to other members of the roster by the former MMA fighter, Ember returned to challenge the Queen of Spades to another title match.

General Manager William Regal quickly made it official, and there are now three matches booked for TakeOver: New Orleans, Sat., April 7 at Smoothie King Center:

- Aleister Black vs. Andrade “Cien” Almas (c) for the NXT championship

- Ember Moon (c) vs. Shayna Baszler for the Women’s title

- Undisputed ERA (Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly) (c) vs. the winners of The Dusty Rhodes Classic for the Tag Team championship

Of course, even if you stay away from spoilers, you know there’s more going on that that (and that injury will likely force some kind of modification to the tag match). If you want the absolute latest, beyond what’s aired to date, check here.
