Women’s triple threat title match booked for Valentine’s Day NXT TakeOver event

New, 15 comments

This week’s episode of NXT TV featured Toni Storm making clear she was coming for Io Shirai and the NXT women’s championship. It also featured Mercedes Martinez making clear she, too, was coming for Io Shirai and the NXT women’s championship.

It left us wondering if a triple threat match would be in the cards. Sure enough, that’s exactly what we’re getting.

Indeed, as Comicbook.com reported today, Shirai vs. Storm vs. Martinez is now official for the upcoming NXT TakeOver event on Feb. 14, 2021.

Since returning to NXT back at TakeOver 31, Storm has been chasing the title. Martinez briefly flirted with a main roster callup as a member of RETRIBUTION but decided instead that NXT made more sense for her. She, too, only recently returned and immediately went about chasing the title. Shirai has been champion dating back to June of last year.

So far, this is the only match official for the show.
