If you missed the Jan. 24 episode of NXT, then you missed a show filled with the women’s division. There were a total of four women’s matches along with various segments. The show closed out with the Championship Summit which had the NXT Women’s Champion Roxanne Perez go face-to-face-to-face with Jacy Jayne and Gigi Dolin of Toxic Attraction. Her opponents for Vengeance Day on Feb. 4. But more on that later.
First, let’s go over the results of the matches –
Tiffany Stratton def. Indi Hartwell
Elektra Lopez def. Wendy Choo
Fallon Henley & Kiana James def. Ivy Nile & Tatum Paxley
Katana Chance & Kayden Carter (c) def. Alba Fyre & Sol Ruca – NXT Women’s Tag Team Titles
To open this week’s show, Tiffany Stratton returns to the ring for the first time since August. Her return ruffled the feathers of Indi Hartwell when Stratton seemed smug about how she referred to the women’s locker room. The match would result in the favor of the returning Stratton as she delivered a moonsault from the top rope to pin Hartwell for the victory.
Next up, we have Elektra Lopez taking on Wendy Choo. This match was more so for the story of Lopez who has been talking to Valentina Feroz as of late. Feroz has had a string of bad luck over the past number of months. Her tag team partner Yulisa Leon was sidelined with an injury, and she lost her mentor of sorts in Sanga. Lopez told Feroz last week to watch her match this week to see how to be victorious.
Lopez is known for her cheating ways to win matches and this time would be no different. After Choo got a near fall from a cross body, Lopez pulled brass knuckles out of her gear to utilize. She delivered a right hand which knocked out Choo for the three count. Post-match, Feroz looked on, and even though she doesn’t agree with Lopez’s tactics maybe she is reconsidering.
For the last two matches, you can read the results in the NXT Women’s Tag Team Title Match Set For Vengeance Day article.
Now onto the other moments for the women –
Nikkita Lyons was attacked in the parking lot. There were several people around when she was attacked and it would be Hartwell and Lyra Valkyria who came and tried to help her. This was announced as Cora Jade was being interviewed in the locker room. Jade was upset that her interview was cut short just as she was explaining that Valkyria left her a black feather in her locker.
Stevie Turner was interviewed (sort of) by Mckenzie Mitchell. Turner stated that her debut will be next week and that she would eventually like to face Roxanne Perez. She has a feeling Perez won’t be champion past Vengeance Day.
Thea Hail had an award ceremony with the rest of Chase U.
Lastly, we had the Championship Summit which took place in the main event. Roxanne Perez will be defending her NXT Women’s Title for the first time at Vengeance Day in a Triple Threat against both members of Toxic Attraction. Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne won this opportunity by simultaneously eliminating each other at the end of a 20-woman battle royal.
Throughout the night, both Dolin and Jayne had separate interviews. Basically talking about their growing dislike for one another ever since they were named number one contenders. They took this to the summit and they didn’t hold back. They would trade insults with Perez eventually saying she loves to see both of them go at each other. The champ was afraid of a handicap situation at Vengeance Day but now thinks it may be a real Triple Threat.
Dolin and Jayne end up getting up from their seats and in each other’s faces until they then put on a smile. It was an act all along and Toxic Attraction is still standing together. They would target Perez and put her through the table. The show ended with a shot of Dolin and Jayne holding up the championship together.
