Big women's match added to next week's NXT UK.
Assistant to the NXT UK General Manager Johnny Saint announced that Rhea Ripley will battle Piper Niven on the Sept. 4 episode of NXT UK. The two recently got into a backstage brawl and have sent multiple warning shots at each other over the past couple of months. Niven and Ripley met on July 3 episode of NXT UK with Niven picking up the victory.
Ripley made a surprise appearance on NXT on Wednesday, stepping to NXT Women's Champion Shayna Baszler. She has been working NXT live events in recent months, though it hasn't been confirmed that she has permanently moved to the US brand.
