Kay Lee Ray Has Been NXT UK Women’s Champion For 600 Days

Kay Lee Ray has hit day 600 as NXT UK Women's Champion.

Kay Lee Ray likes to say that she will be NXT UK Women's Champion forever and thus far, nobody has been able to prove her wrong.

Nine Matches Announced For 5/11 Episode Of AEW Dark

Kay Lee Ray is the third NXT UK Women's Champion. She earned the championship by defeating Toni storm on August 31, 2019. That was the date of NXT UK TakeOver: Cardiff. In the time since, Kay Lee has defeated the likes of Piper Niven, Jinny, and most recently, Meiko Satomura.

Much like WALTER’s historic title reign with the men's equivalent NXT UK Championship, there will always be an asterisk in the history books when discussing these championship reigns because of the hiatus that NXT UK was forced to undergo due to the emerging Global pandemic in 2020.

To celebrate her historic reign, Kay Lee posted a simple social media humblebrag with the hashtag “#ForeverChampion.”

Recently, Shawn Michaels praised Kay Lee Ray, during an interview with Inside The Ropes. Shawn Michaels would say that she is “the greatest” and call her the best-kept secret of “NXT UK.”

"I will say to you, and I’m not patronizing. Absolutely, some of the sweetest, most hardworking young men and women that I’ve ever met. I’m very partial to Gallus, ‘Gallus Boys On Top!’ Kay Lee Ray. She, to me, is probably the greatest… I think, you know, NXT UK Women’s Champion, but she’s just now… She’s the best-kept secret. If she ever chooses to come over and come to America, and be part of the WWE from a global standpoint, I see her having the exact same kind of success that Drew has had. She is very, very good and she has done unbelievable work for us over in the UK and I couldn’t be more proud of her because she is an absolutely fantastic young lady."
