Like an uprising from the streets that’s ready to storm the castle of an oppressive overlord, Mia Yim will challenge NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler for the crown at TakeOver: Toronto.

Once upon a time, The Queen of Spades ruled the NXT Women’s division with an iron first, viciously snuffing out any and all opposition with the help of her running mates, Marina Shafir & Jessamyn Duke.

Then came The Head Baddie in Charge. Swearing to defend those who need protecting, Yim used Baszler’s own ruthless tactics against The Submission Magician and her foot soldiers, wiping out Shafir & Duke with outside-the-ring-vigilante strikes that not only left the NXT Women’s Champion crying foul, but also in the unfamiliar position of operating without backup.

Baszler has since claimed that The HBIC’s attacks were the actions of a “street rat,” and she intends to turn out Yim’s lights in Toronto. Her disparaging remarks, however, have done little to intimidate Yim: The HBIC told Baszler that she’s bringing a fight for which The Queen of Spades can’t possibly prepare.

Will Yim bring an end to #ShaynaTwoTime’s reign of terror? Or will Baszler prove that Yim is no match for her?

Tune in to NXT TakeOver: Toronto when it streams live Saturday, Aug. 10, at 7 ET/4 PT, exclusively on the award-winning WWE Network.
