Big opportunity for two women on Wednesday's NXT.
NXT General Manager William Regal announced the Horsewomen duo of Marina Shafir & Jessamyn Duke will take on Team Kick squad of Dakota Kai & Tegan Nox on Wednesday's episode of NXT. The winners of the tag team clash will move on to challenge The Kabuki Warriors (Asuka & Kairi Sane) for the WWE Women's Tag Team Titles on the Oct. 30 episode of NXT.
You can view the announcement in the video above.
NXT General Manager William Regal has signed a tag team battle with huge implications for tonight’s live broadcast on USA Network. Tegan Nox & Dakota Kai will square off with Marina Shafir & Jessamyn Duke, with the winners receiving a WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship Match next Wednesday against The Kabuki Warriors.
The two tandems are no strangers to each other — especially given the events of recent weeks.. Shafir & Duke are never far from NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler, who confronted Nox after her return to the ring last week on USA. The Submission Magician in turn mocked both Kia and The Girl with The Shiniest Wizard, who was out on the shelf for over a year with a knee injury.
While both Nox & Kai would love to get their hands on Baszler, they’ll certainly be up to battle her fellow MMA Horsewomen in tag team action. Which team will earn a WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship Match? Find out tonight during WWE NXT on USA Network, live at 8/7 C!
Also scheduled for Wednesday's NXT.
* NXT North American Championship: Roderick Strong (c) vs. Keith Lee vs. Dominik Dijakovic
* Rhea Ripley vs. Bianca Belair
* Matt Riddle vs. Cameron Grimes
Fightful will have live coverage of NXT beginning at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday.
