NXT Women’s Championship match is set for NXT NXT Halloween Havoc 2023 Night One event.
During the October 3 episode of NXT, Lyra Valkyria became the #1 contender for NXT Women’s Championship by defeating Roxanne Perez and Indi Hartwell. On the October 9 episode of RAW, Becky Lynch is scheduled to defend her NXT Women’s title against Tegan Nox. The winner of this match will then go on to face Lyra Valkyria for the championship.
During the October 3 episode of NXT, Lyra Valkyrie began the show by making a statement about Becky Lynch. She revealed that her training started during the same week Becky Lynch made her debut in NXT and she continued to emphasize how Becky has served as an inspiration to an entire generation of Irish wrestlers.
Indi Hartwell returned to NXT to stake the claim that she never lost the title and relinquished it when she moved to RAW. Roxanne Perez was also quick to claim a title shot as she was also a champion before.
During the match, Roxanne had hit Indi with Pop-Rox when Kiana James pulled her out of the ring. Lyra then hit Indi with a splash to get the pinfall win. Becky and Lyra had a brief face-off in the ring as well to hype the match.
During the September 19 episode of NXT, Valkyria and Lynch defeated Tiffany Stratton and Kiana James in a tag team match. Valkyria has not yet captured a championship in WWE, and this upcoming opportunity could be her chance to win the NXT Women’s title for the first time.
NXT Halloween Havoc 2023 Night One event is scheduled for October 24, 2023. This is the first match announced for the event.
