Candice LeRae, Nikki Cross and Kairi Sane collide in high-stakes Triple Threat Match
Three of NXT’s best will square off to see who will jump to the front of the line to be the next challenger for NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler. Candice LeRae, Kairi Sane and Nikki Cross will collide in a Triple Threat Match with with a title opportunity at TakeOver: Brooklyn hanging in the balance.
Bianca Belair was originally also slated to compete in this contest, but due to an injury, she is not cleared to compete. That leaves three to attempt to rise to the occasion to challenge the all but unstoppable Baszler. Will it be LeRae, who, despite her husband Johnny Gargano’s raging conflict with Tommaso Ciampa, has stayed focused on earning a title opportunity? Or will Sane and Cross, two Superstars who have previously succumbed to Baszler during her dominant reign, seize the opportunity to earn another title bout against Baszler?
Find out when these three Superstars collide with their eyes on the prize tonight on WWE NXT.
Dakota Kai steps to Lacey Evans
After Lacey Evans boldly interrupted Dakota Kai, seemingly just to tell Kai that she lacked the class and sophistication to be the face of the NXT Women’s division, the usually demure Kai challenged The Lady of NXT to a match where she promised to “kick the class off of her face.”
Their war of words escalated on social media:
SOMEONE let me know? You spineless excuse for a woman.
I dont have to audition…I'm hired by the best sports entertainment company in the world and unlike you… I didnt have to work from the bottom begging for a shot. #StillClassy https://t.co/nxsB0J5lMV

Will Evans back up the litany of insults she has hurled Kai’s way? Or will The Captain of Team Kick take Evans’ concept of class to school with her educated feet?
