WWE NXT Women's Championship Match Added To NXT TakeOver: In Your House
Will Ripley win the title back...
Since WrestleMania 36, Charlotte Flair, Io Shirai, and Rhea Ripley have been intertwined on NXT TV. The Queen forced Ripley to tap out at The Showcase Of The Immortals and defended her title against The Genius Of The Sky soon after. Her first title defence ended in a disqualification, however, as Flair attacked Shirai which drew the ire of the returning Ripley. The Australian and Io then faced off on this week's episode of NXT, only to have Charlotte attack them both before the match was over.
WWE has now announced that the three Superstars will face off for the NXT Women's Championship at NXT TakeOver: In Your House on June 7. This is the second bout on the card as Tomasso Ciampa vs. Karrion Kross was added to the show earlier this week.
More matches will be announced in the next couple of weeks, and the company has already teased that Keith Lee will defend the North American Championship against Johnny Gargano, while Finn Balor will look to get revenge on Damian Priest.
NXT TakeOver: In Your House will be broadcast on the WWE Network on June 7. Check out the announced card so far below:
• Tommaso Ciampa vs. Karrion Kross
• Charlotte Flair (c) vs. Rhea Ripley vs. Io Shirai - NXT Women's Championship
