Kairi Sane Will Get NXT Women’s Title Shot After MYC Win
Kairi Sane defeated Shayna Baszler in the Mae Young Classic finals tonight to win the tournament.
As a result, Triple H announced to ESPN that she will wrestle in a match to determine the new NXT Women’s Champion at NXT TakeOver: Houston on Saturday, November 18, the night before Survivor Series. WWE.com also announced it.
“[I’m] very excited that she’s the first champion, and now the question is ‘What’s next for her?’ I can tell you what’s next for her,” continued Levesque. “On Nov. 18 at the Toyota Center at the next NXT TakeOver, Kairi will be fighting to determine a new NXT women’s champion.”
It’s rumored that it may end up being a multi-woman match, as mentioned by Pro Wrestling Sheet’s James McKenna:
fyi – hearing from sources that the whoever the winner is of the #MYC will be included in a multi-woman match for the vacant women's title.
