Tiffany Stratton vows to be a better NXT women’s champion than Becky Lynch (UPDATED)

Tiffany Stratton wasn’t booked to wrestle on this week’s special “Heatwave” episode of NXT television because she doesn’t currently have a top contender for her NXT women’s championship. So instead she got to cut a promo before a group of wrestlers hit the scene to advocate for themselves, setting up an easy way to find her next challenger.

What’s noteworthy here is that she vowed to be a better NXT women’s champion than Becky Lynch.

Lynch, of course, was never NXT women’s champion.

UPDATE: The response on social media was such that NXT instantly did this:

This title run is going swimmingly.
