New Title Contenders; Six-Man Tag Match And More Announced


WWE NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions Ember Moon and Shotzi Blackheart have received next opponents to defend their titles. It has been announced that The Way faction’s Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell will challenge the champions for an upcoming title shot.

It wasn’t specified when the title match will take place, but this is going to be a rematch from the recently bygone WWE NXT Takeover: Stand and Deliver Night Two. In that match, Moon and Blackheart retained their titles, in their second-only title defense since winning the belts from Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzalez in early March.

This week’s WWE NXT featured a backstage segment where LeRae and Hartwell confronted the champions. Hartwell eventually abandoned her during the confrontation, presumably to see Dexter Lumis. Moon and Blackheart then beat LeRae up. Hartwell later joined The Way in another backstage segment to reveal that she met with Regal where the General Manager had granted them the future title shot.

Martinez has called out NXT Women’s Champion Raquel Gonzalez for the past two weeks, and this week she continued taunting Gonzalez, mentioning how she will always remain in Kai’s shadow. She then pledged to take out Kai next week so that the title match could go down with Kai not getting involved.
