Plus, NXT Women's Champion Raquel Gonzalez will team with Dakota Kai to take on Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter and Ted DiBiase will officially crown LA Knight as the new Million Dollar Champion.

From WWE:

The Genius of the Sky is back.

After making her return to NXT last week with a little help from Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Poppy, Io Shirai is set to address the NXT Universe tonight.

Will she continue to set her sights on NXT Women’s Tag Team Champion Candice LeRae, or is there something else the former NXT Women’s Champion is looking to accomplish?

Find out tonight live on NXT at 8/7 C on USA Network!


Raquel Gonzalez’s meteoric rise as NXT Women’s Champion continued at NXT TakeOver: In Your House, and tonight Big Mami Cool will team with Dakota Kai against Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter.

At the NXT TakeOver: In Your House Global Press Conference, Gonzalez let Ember Moon know that she had her eyes set on being a double champion on the black-and-gold brand. The first-ever NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions were bested by Moon & Shotzi Blackheart in their last match together while Catanzaro & Carter have been out of action since March.

Will Gonzalez & Kai regain momentum in the hunt for the titles?
