Tatum Paxley Ends Creepy Friendship & Attacks Lyra Valkyria at Tuesday’s NXT Show

Tuesday’s NXT show featured Tatum Paxley turning heel on Lyra Valkyria and ending the stalker-like friendship she had with Valkyria in recent months.

During the show, new NXT Women’s Champion Roxanne Perez came out to boast about her title victory over Valkyria and the belt finally being back where it deserves after a year long wait. Perez also claimed that the next time she drops her title, it will be when after she has been drafted to RAW or SmackDown and told everyone to look at the title since they were not going to see it again.

This led to Valkyria’s music playing and Valkyria coming out to interrupt. Valkyria asked Perez if this is what we are in store for her reign as champion. Valkyria stated that if Perez feels too good for NXT then she can stay on RAW or go to SmackDown but the NXT Women’s title stays here with her. Valkyria then demanded to be given her rematch for the title tonight. Perez responded that Valkyria is not medically cleared and asked why she would want to waste her chance tonight.

Before anything else could happen, Paxley interrupted and showed up in the crowd. Paxley stated that Lyra might not be ready but she is and went up to Valkyria trying to hug her. Valkyria responded stating that she likes that Paxley stands up for her but she was angry after the match. Valkyria stated that she can do it despite her injury. Paxley responded asking Valkyria if she is and send her right into the ring post. This led to WWE officials and security coming out to send Paxley to the back and Valkyria being attended to and helped to the back.

Perez stated that you won’t be seeing a title match tonight leading to Natayla coming out and after some banter between the two, NXT General Manager Ava made their match official for tonight.

Jayce Jayne Reveals Real Cause of Chase U’s Dire Financial Issues Last Year

Tuesday’s NXT show also featured Jayce Jayne blaming Thea Hail for being the real cause of Chase University’s dire financial situation last year.

During the show, Andre Chase was seen talking to his Chase U students and thanked Fallon Henley and Kelani Jordan for their help at this past Saturday’s NXT Stand & Deliver 2024 event. Hail showed up and sat down for class leading to Jayne and Jazmyn Nyx showing up right afterwards. Jayne stated that she was not here to start a fight but instead came to ask Andre a question.

Jayne asked Andre if he was going to finally tell Hail the real reason why she had to get Chase U out of debut. Jayne went up to Hail and stated that the package she had received from Rizzo said it all. Jayne stated that Chase had placed a bet on Hail’s NXT Women’s Championship match at NXT Great American Bash 2023. Jayne talked about the towel that Chase had with him that night for her match and when he threw it, Chase cared more about a loser like Thea than the well-being of the University. Jayne stated that it is ironic that Hail was the problem all along. Chase went up to Hail and stated that it is true and Jayne responded stating that Chase had placed a bet on her match. Chase responded stating that he will bet on Hail any time leading to Hail being upset over what had been told and stormed out of the room.

Ivar Makes Surprise Appearance at Tuesday’s NXT Show

Tuesday’s NXT show also featured RAW brand talent Ivar making a surprise appearance.

During the show, current NXT North American Champion Oba Femi came out to give a speech to the crowd. Femi talked about his match against Dijak and Josh Briggs at NXT Stand & Deliver 2024 and how he knew he would retain his title since it would be the genesis of his rile of the division. Femi praised Briggs and Dijak for the match they had and stated that his win established him at the top of the mountain that no one else can climb. After some more words, Femi stated that he will be the champion for a very very very very long time and that is inevitable.

Before Femi could say anything else, the Viking Raider’s music played interrupting Femi and a non-viking clothing and regularly dressed Ivar came out making his surprise appearance. Ivar went to the ring and talked about Femi’s match at Stand & Deliver 2024 and how much he loved what he saw.

After some more praise by Ivar about Femi’s match, Femi stated that he knows Ivar did not travel all the way down here just to praise him and asked what he wanted. Ivar responded stating that he felt a deep jealously not just for the North American title but because he wanted to be in that fight. Ivar stated that Briggs and Dijak threw everything they had at Femi but he remains the immovable object. Ivar then stated that he knows he is the man who can chop him down and be the man who can take his North American title. Femi responded stating that we shall see and attempted to leave the ring only to be stopped by Ivar who responded back saying “we will see.” This led to a brawl breaking out and Ivar standing tall in the end holding up the North American title.
