NXT General Manager William Regal was not happy in the slightest after the shenanigans that took place during the Women's Tag Team Championship match, which you could very much lay at the feet of Adam Pearce. Pearce ran into the arena with his own referee after NXT's referee was knocked out accidentally by Raquel Gonzalez, and that's what sealed the win, despite it not being legal or the right call. In response, Regal said he will make an announcement on next week's show that will change the landscape of NXT, and we cannot wait to hear what it is.
Will it be Regal barring all people from Raw or SmackDown from being in the arena during a match, or will it be another chance for Gonzalez and Dakota Kai to compete for the titles, perhaps at Fastlane or even WrestleMania, which are both coming up soon.
For those who didn't watch how it all unfolded, after Gonzalez accidentally knocked out the referee, Gonzalez was pulled outside of the ring by Nia Jax, and they continued to battle. Meanwhile, in the ring, Shayna Baszler locked in a submission on Kai, ultimately knocking her out enough for the win. Unfortunately, Kai was not the active competitor, as she was tagged in last by Kai.
Pearce's referee either didn't know that or care and so declared the match finished when it clearly wasn't. Can't blame Regal for being angry in the slightest, and hopefully, Kai and Gonzalez will get another shot.
