Shayna Baszler In Her First Championship Defense Next Week

Shayna Baszler will take on Dakota Kai again. 

Since winning the NXT Women's Championship at NXT Takeover: New Orleans, Shayna Baszler has yet to defend her Championship on a NXT broadcast. She did defend it at WrestleMania Axxess against the winner of the Axxess tournament Dakota Kai. Also in January, Baszler attacked Kai and injured her arm before Ember Moon came to the rescue which set up the match in New Orleans.
