After meeting in the finals of the first-ever Mae Young Classic tournament, Kairi Sane and reigning NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler will once again do battle inside the squared circle at the next NXT TakeOver special.
At last night’s NXT TV tapings at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida, 2017 Mae Young Classic winner Sane defeated Nikki Cross and Candice LaRae in a Triple-Threat match to become the new number one contender to the NXT Women’s Championship.
With the win, which is expected to air as part of the July 11th episode of NXT TV on the WWE Network, Sane moves on to challenge Baszler with the title on-the-line at the NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV special.
NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV is scheduled to take place on Saturday, August 18th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York as part of WWE SummerSlam 2018 weekend. The event will air live on the WWE Network. Make sure to join us here on 8/18 for live play-by-play results coverage of the entire show.
