Tonight NXT fans were ready to see Rhea Ripley exact revenge on Dakota Kai for her actions at NXT TakeOver: WarGames, and they did in a way, as Ripley brought out Mia Yim to attack Kai in the middle of the ring. Ripley joined in on the attack as well, but then Shayna Baszler decided to hit the ring with her crew and take the fight to Ripley, and unfortunately the numbers game was too much to overcome. That led to the announcement of an upcoming Women's NXT Championship match in two weeks' time between Ripley and Baszler, and cannot wait to see this matchup.
Baszler was joined by Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir, who stormed the ring and overwhelmed Ripley. Baszler was able to get Ripley against the ropes in a sleeper hold while Duke and Shafir held Ripley's arms past the ropes, making it impossible for her to break free.
They eventually let go, but the damage was done, and Baszler was able to keep the hold locked in. Now the two will throw down in two weeks, and odds are Ripley will be bringing some backup to even the odds.
