Back from commercial, Lyra Valkyria is in the ring and on the mic.
She says she and Blair Davenport kicked the crap out of each other but she’s still champion and she’s confident she’ll remain champion through all of 2024. The question for now is who’s she going to fight at Vengeance Day? We’ll all find out next week, because Ava Raine told her there’ll be a twenty-woman battle royal with a twist.
The final four entrants remaining will compete in a four-way match to determine the #1 contender to the NXT Women’s Championship!
Enter Lola Vice and Elektra Lopez.
Lola says the only reason she’s still champ is she got stopped from cashing in and Valkyria tells her she gets it. She thought Lola would come in here and turn the place upside down, but all she does is talk and talk about what she’s going to do. Valkyria isn’t here to watch her shake her ass on Instagram, she’s here to fight Lola Vice the cagefighter!
Vice says everyone loves her, she can’t help it, and the people are like sheep who follow her every move, but she can’t blame them for loving Latina Heat. Lyra says the only latina heat she sees is coming from Elektra Lopez, who held Legado del Fantasma together. And when is she going to break it to her bestie that she has no intent of cashing in for a tag title match.
