The WWE Women’s Tag title scene came to NXT last night

In recent weeks on Raw, Natalya & Tegan Nox have gone from rivals for an NXT Women’s title shot to rivals for Chelsea Green & Piper Niven’s WWE Women’s Tag Team championship. Nattie and Nox have run interference for one another in singles matches against Green & Niven on Monday nights, but when they tried to do the same during Tegan’s match with Lyra Valkyria on NXT last night (Oct. 18), it didn’t go smoothly.

Valkyria, one of two women who will challenge Becky Lynch for the NXT belt next week, rolled Tegan up while Natalya was staring down the Tag champs. Then a brawl broke out.

Makes sense, as Lyra needed a win heading into her Halloween Havoc showdown with The Man and it sets up a Tag title bout. Would you rather the champs interact with NXT stars while on NXT, though? Or are you just happy WWE’s actually telling a story for their Women’s Tag titles?
