Last night at NXT, it was announced that Kairi Sane will be given the last chance to win the NXT Women’s Championship at next week’s episode. The upcoming episodes were also tapped at NXT’s base in Full Sail University last night where Kairi Sane lost the match by disqualification. Baszler attacked Sane’s arm and trainers had to check on her.
Io Shirai came out to check on her tag team partner and attacked Baszler in retribution to cause the disqualification. After the match, Sane bowed down in front of the crowd and gave her farewell to NXT. She also did not work any other match for the rest of the tapings and as per the rumors, she will be drafted to the main roster and assigned a brand in the upcoming Superstar Shakeup next week.
The second part of the rumor is that she will be assigned to Paige as her manager and will partner former NXT and SmackDown Women’s Champion Asuka. Paige mentioned that she will be bringing a tag team to challenge the Women’s Tag Team Champions the IIconics. Some speculations were that Paige will start managing Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose to reform her stable Absolution. But that does not seem to be the case.
Another NXT star that is rumored to be called up to the main roster is Former WWE UK Champion Pete Dunne. Dunne recently lost his title to WALTER at the NXT Takeover: New York last Friday which ended his 685 days long championship reign and there is hardly anything left for him to do in NXT UK brand. However, Dunne teased that he will be having a rematch with WALTER to get the title back.
