Asuka To Defend NXT Women's Title Against Nikki Cross In Last Woman Standing Match

The WWE has just announced that NXT Women's Champion Asuka will be defending her title against her rival Nikki Cross in a Last Woman Standing match, to be broadcast on the June 28 episode of NXT.

Here is what the WWE wrote on their website:

NXT Women’s Champion Asuka will put her coveted title on the line against the crazed Nikki Cross on the June 28 episode of NXT. The title showdown will be a Last Woman Standing Match, further adding to the uncertainty and chaos surrounding the huge championship contest.

The extreme stipulation was a logical next step in Asuka and Cross’s rivalry after the two brawled throughout Full Sail University on the June 14 episode of NXT. Along with Ruby Riot, they competed in a Triple Threat Elimination Match for the NXT Women’s Title. After Riot had been eliminated, Asuka and Cross fought outside the arena, only to return and eventually crash through a table, leaving them laid out in a heap of carnage.

Here's some footage from the most recent episode of NXT, the last time these two were in the ring together (or outside of it, really):

Unfortunately the match will not air Live; it will be taped at Full Sail next Friday, so if you don't want spoilers, stay off social media that night. Go out and see a movie or something.

But if you do want spoilers, Fightful will have them for you.
