Becky Lynch challenges for the NXT women’s championship next week

Ever since Tiffany Stratton misspoke in a promo claiming she’ll be a better NXT women’s champion than Becky Lynch, who has never held that title, WWE has been teasing out the two wrestling a match at some point in the near future. The only issue with that was the fact that Stratton was booked for a title defense on this week’s episode of NXT against Kiana James, who won a Fatal 4-Way to become top contender.

Well, James got some offense in and they did a solid near fall spot, but Stratton poked the eyes and then hit the Prettiest Moonsault ever to score the pinfall and the victory. It was a strong win for the champion, which made sense with what happened next.

Lynch showed up on the tron.

She said everyone is wondering what she’s going to do next and she’s decided — she’ll be challenging for the NXT women’s championship, and it will be happening in the main event of next week’s show.

See you then!
