At the NXT TakeOver 31 special event, which streamed live on the WWE Network from the aforementioned rebranded and redesigned venue inside the WWE Performance Center training facility on October 4, 2020, two significant returns took place during the NXT Women’s Championship contest.
Former NXT UK Women’s Champion Toni Storm appeared on the titan tron while the match was in progress on Sunday night, while Ember Moon appeared live at the top of the entrance stage after reigning, defending NXT Women’s Champion Io Shirai retained her title with a victory over Candice LeRae.
